Business Benefits

TEKLYNX CENTRAL barcode design software can increase efficiency in your manufacturing operations.

Hosted label printing for supplier networks. By enabling out-of-network printing, local printing features allow you to force suppliers and/or vendors to print your internally approved labels.

Improve brand awareness internally and externally. Customize the color scheme of your user interface and add your company’s logo to the print page. Whether it’s an internal resource or a vendor printing from your TEKLYNX CENTRAL instance, your branding is carried through.

Integrated applications eliminate compatibility issues. The proven label software solutions provided by TEKLYNX are designed to work together. Our controlled development process keeps applications in sync and provides a stable solution your organization can rely on.

A controlled environment provides the security you need to ensure accuracy. A defined business process can be enforced at every level, restricting access to only the printers, compliance labels, and tasks a user needs to perform their job.

A customizable user interface reduces errors and misprints. Your complex labeling process is reduced to a simple set of steps that is easy for your inventory management staff to master.

Web-based access eliminates the need for individual workstation installations. By reducing costly system maintenance and software upgrades, you can spend less time managing your tracking software and more time managing your business.

Centralized controls help system administrators coordinate licensing. System-wide settings can be defined in a single location and rolled out across the organization.

How is TEKLYNX CENTRAL licensed?
TEKLYNX CENTRAL is licensed by the number of printers, print users, label design users, and reporting users you need. After you’ve purchased TEKLYNX CENTRAL barcode design software, you can easily add printers and users as your company grows.
Can I centrally manage all my user licenses and rights for all components of my enterprise barcode labeling system?
Yes, all printers, print users, barcode label design users, and report users are managed on a single server. Authentication can be configured to use TEKLYNX user security or Windows Active Directory.
Where do I manage my printers?
Printers are installed, configured, and managed on the server, giving you peace of mind that the printer settings won’t be inappropriately adjusted on individual workstations.
What technology does TEKLYNX CENTRAL use for enterprise label management and printing?
The label design component of TEKLYNX CENTRAL is powered by CODESOFT, and the label management module is powered by LABEL ARCHIVE. The browser-based printing interface is powered by LABELNET, while the central print management is powered by SENTINEL.
What languages does CODESOFT support?
CODESOFT's interface supports Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English (United States), Estonian, Finnish, French (France), German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Portugal), Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
Can my users visually validate labels at print time?
The browser-based printing interface displays a preview of the label directly above the Print button. If variable information is added at print time, the preview is updated to display that information.
Can I give specific rights to different users?
Yes, you can configure users to have access to different features in TEKLYNX CENTRAL, as well as configure your system to control user access to labels and printers.
Can I track and report on my print history?
Yes, a Print History report can be generated on the server. The Print History report displays the date/time, printer, and variable information printed on the label. TEKLYNX CENTRAL also logs the user, workstation, product, and work order that are associated with each print job.
Do I need to install anything on individual workstations in order to print?
No, the browser based printing interface launches in your Internet Explorer browser, so no separate software installation is needed.
Can I prevent users from modifying my label designs and printing unapproved labels?
The barcode label design cannot be modified at print time. You can also configure your system to restrict user access to labels and printers to prevent printing unapproved labels.
Can I print outside the company network?
Yes, when the browser-based printing interface is published on a public domain, users can print to printers connected to their local computer.
What reporting options does TEKLYNX CENTRAL offer?
Reports can be created on print history or document modification. The reports can be customized to display the most critical inventory tracking information for your business.
Can TEKLYNX CENTRAL help manage the approval of my labels?
Yes. The label management component gives you the ability to create custom approval rules. Users can approve labels from within the label designer or through a web interface.
What database does CENTRAL use to store labels and configuration data?
The label and configuration data is stored in a Microsoft SQL database. The data that prints on the label can be queried through any OLE database connection.
