    This manual tells me nothing about how to integrate it with our current inventory and how the process works once the software is installed. We want to use this for the first time for year-end inventory. Do you have another manual that tells us about once we scan items and enter an inventory count does it automatica​lly update or do we have to download from the scanner into our computer inventory? We need some help here.
