Throughout the course of cannabis production, Grow Technicians interact with the Seed-to-Sale software through specialized hardware, including the scanner gun, printers, and scales. This article summarizes the hardware a Grow Technician can expect to use as part of the grow room workflow.

Hardware used in this workflow must be integrated with the Seed-to-Sale software. Contact the Ample Organics Hardware Support team to Add a New Printer, or visit the Settings module to Add a New Scale or Test a Scale's Connection.
