NICELABEL LABEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM: Perfecting Label Printing
Organizing and streamlining printers and printing processes across the company, including different locations worldwide and comprising multiple printer models, can be a real challenge. With the NiceLabel Label Management System (LMS), it is possible to design, manage and print labels. The entire printing process is integrated into existing business systems, such as ERP, MES, WMS or SAP. For optimal performance, NiceLabel LMS can process data from any protocol and it is devised for a 64-bit computer architecture. Centralized data storage and control of the printing processes throughout the enterprise enhance procedures as well as quality and efficiency of label printing, regardless of the number of printers used.
NiceLabel LMS comes with exceptional label design capabilities providing graphical design features. A new label can be created within minutes without any programming skills. The user interface is inspired by MS Word and therefore easy to use. There are user guides, a knowledge base and training videos available. Templates can be saved and connected to dynamic data sources to ensure that content is up to date at all times. LMS also ensures regulatory compliance. Created templates are compatible with any printer in the company.
At the heart of NiceLabel LMS is its unique Document Management System (DMS). Central control and management of data and printer licenses ensure transparency and reduce errors. Data in the central database can be automatically synchronized with all involved devices at any location. By means of a central index, templates can be found quickly and easily. The NiceLabel LMS document management system provides a test environment to check label composition and content before going live and it also includes version control (Please note: This feature is only included in the LMS Enterprise version.). When changes are made, the label compare feature graphically highlights all modifications and simplifies quality control. Authorized persons are notified and can approve or reject changes.
The web printing feature enables standardized label printing across the whole company and, if required, can also include business partners and suppliers. Printing forms can be centrally managed and deployed. Updates are applied throughout the entire system immediately. This streamlined process improves productivity and ensures consistency across all locations. The integrated application builder allows the creation of printing forms and data management forms tailored to requirements using drag and drop. NiceLabel LMS enables manual printing, using the labeling software to select and fill out a data form, then print labels on a selected printer. Integrated printing, on the other hand, is an automated printing process triggered by the ERP or MES system. NiceLabel LMS brings together the required label template and data content from the central database and automatically executes the print task on the desired printer. Because of its extensive interfaces, LMS can be directly tied into the business systems and applications. This integrated printing method ensures that labels are printed with up-to-date business data and that corporate rules and defined procedures in connection with print tasks are complied with at all sites.
