There is no license for WMS Express required from Insight Works. However, in order to connect your scanner to Business Central you will need a Business Central license from your partner. You can connect with either a Full User license or a Device license. Device licenses make the most sense if you have shared devices that are used by people that otherwise would not have a Business Central login.
