Learn how to use Jazva’s native iOS app for inventory management.
Jazva Mobile makes it easy to manage inventory from any warehouse. As a barcode scanning application, it not only improves inventory and fulfillment handling speed, but it also minimizes errors. The app is tied to your Jazva account on desktop, so multiple users can access the backend system at the same time.
Since the app is currently in beta, functionality and design may change periodically. Contact your Jazva account manager if you would like to enroll in the program.
The app’s features are currently limited to:
- Receiving Inventory
- Shipping Batches
- Counting Inventory
- Moving Inventory
Many of these modules work the same way as Jazva on desktop.
Compatible Devices & Recommended Equipment
- iOS version 9.x.x and up
- iPod touch 5th Generation + Honeywell Captuvo SL22*
- iPad mini + Honeywell Captuvo SL62*
* When purchasing the Honeywell sled, make sure it includes the built-in barcode scanner. Some models of the SL22 and SL62 also include a built-in card reader. These models will still work with the iPod touch/iPad mini and the Jazva Mobile App, so long as they include the barcode scanner, but please note, the card reader serves no function in the Jazva app at this time.
