About this app

Lightspeed Scanner is the best free inventory barcode scanner app for retail. Perform full or partial inventory counts straight from your Android device—no additional hardware required.

Key features:
• Scan inventory item barcode labels or UPCs using the built-in camera
• Hover scan products for quick input (no need to take a picture)
• Quickly move on to the next item with an “auto next” scan feature
• Immediately get notified of a valid scan through vibrating and beeping features
• Edit the barcode number, product name, and quantity for each scan
• Add barcodes/products manually
• Create and manage unlimited counts
• Have an automatic timestamp for each count

Scanner integrates seamlessly with Lightspeed Retail POS (X-Series) to let you sync inventory counts, product details and stock levels—eliminating the need for spreadsheets and manual entry.

Lightspeed Scanner only works with Lightspeed Retail (X-Series), so you will need an active account to use it.

Supported codes: PCE, Code39, Code39Mod43, EAN13, EAN8, Code93, Code128, PDF417, AztecCode, Interleaved2of5Code, ITF14Code, DataMatrixCode

Lacking the feedback that we have on the iOS app. If something doesn't scan correctly, the phone vibrates but doesn't give a bright, highly visible on screen warning (ie flash red). The flash is far too feint and in the same colour as the background. The warning needs to really jump out at you like the iOS version. This feature is crucial to ensure the count is accurate.

The APP is quite useless and only serves 1 purpose. You scan an item in and it tells you if it exists AS AN ENTRY ONLY in your database. It does NOT tell you if you have any in stock or your current inventory. So if VEND clearly shows a count of 1 or more, this APP will not reveal it. Which makes it quite useless. You are better off lugging around a laptop, logged into your VEND account, with a scanner attached to it. I am speculating that you can add items via the APP that you will then upload into Vend, but that is a little silly (slavery with extra steps type of scenario). So I receive a shipment of new collectibles, I have thousands of UPC codes in store...I scan an item in and need to know if the store is out of that item...nope...this will not do it for you. BUT THAT IS THE MAIN REASON I NEED THE SCANNER! To know my current count! This APP is best for a very specific task. But you will discover that you can save time and steps by skipping the APP. If you are working by yourself, at all times (so there is no value in a team member updating counts in Vend themselves), and you already know exactly all the items you need to insert/update counts, and you are away from you computer, then maybe this APP will help you upload counts so you can just hand over the items to a team member and they place on the floor. Otherwise this is frustrating. Second, it is not self explanatory. You are not going to download this APP and understand that this is what it does. I was so looking forward to this but am extremely disappointed.

Hi Joel, thank you for the feedback. Scanner for Android is currently in beta. We're building out a best in class inventory experience on Android as we bring across chunks of functionality (starting with Inventory Counts). Please keep an eye out for updates as the app is rapidly evolving.

Needs a transfer tab. Receiving and counts are nice but transfers are more frequent

What's new

The app now supports receiving larger orders. Where previously you were limited to orders that had 200 unique SKUs or less, you no longer have this limitation.
