Hi. How can we help?

Can I use multiple Scanner devices for an inventory count?


When completing an inventory count, can I use multiple Scanner devices?


  • Retail POS for Mac or PC
  • Retail POS on iPad
  • Scanner App


Yes, you can use multiple scanners to complete an inventory count. Each device will sync to Retail POS every 10 seconds and will not override information from other devices. The results can be viewed in real time in Retail POS by going to InventoryInventory Counts and clicking on the count in progress. 

Additional Information

We recommend completing partial counts during business hours to avoid discrepancies. For more information, see our article Partial Inventory Counts.

For more information on how to use the Scanner app, refer to our article Getting started with Lightspeed Scanner.
