Upgrading from Another Device Inventory System

If your enterprise currently has an inventory system in place to manage Vocera devices, a system administrator should export the data from your current inventory system into CSV format, modify the data so that it conforms to Vocera's Devices template, and then import the data directly into the Vocera database.

For more information on importing devices, see Importing Data from a CSV File.

Note: System device managers and group device managers do not have privileges to import data into the Vocera system. A system administrator must perform that task.

If you do not have an inventory system in place and Vocera devices have already been deployed to groups or units, the devices will be automatically loaded into the system when they connect to the Vocera Voice Server. You can then generate reports on device usage to determine how the devices should be assigned and fill in any missing information.
