MILWAUKEE – November 17, 2009 – TEKLYNX® International, the world’s leading developer of software products for the Automatic Identification & Data Collection (AIDC) marketplace, today introduced CODESOFT® 9 bar code labeling and integration software worldwide. The new state-of-the-art software brings day-one support for Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, as well as unmatched design features, powerful database resources, and label design and printing capabilities for enterprise-level labeling applications.

"People who tested CODESOFT 9 love the interface and the wizards. They’ve found that the wizards cut multi-step processes down to two mouse clicks,” said Kristen Vetter, product manager. “We’ve combined user friendliness with powerful built-in database and query capabilities to streamline the design process. They make CODESOFT 9 the most powerful and easiest to use enterprise label design and integration software on the market.”

User interface second to none
CODESOFT 9’s power and ease of use directly benefit label system administrators, designers, and users. Label design wizards include scores of symbologies, including Health Industry Bar Code (HIBC) and GS1 Databar. CODESOFT 9 also features a drag-and-drop label designer and label comparison tool.

Advanced integration features
Database connection and formula wizards facilitate database integration and queries. CODESOFT 9‘s ActiveX automation enables developers to create and print labels dynamically from other applications. Its .NET Wrapper allows for seamless integration with a wide range of products that use different technologies and gives integrators who develop in .NET a choice between CODESOFT’s ActiveX and .NET interfaces.

Enterprise printing and SENTINEL compatibility
CODESOFT is designed for enterprise-wide printing from centralized locations, including mainframes, through any network. It offers high-speed bi-directional drivers for more than 2,100 thermal and thermal transfer printers, and supports any Windows-based printer. It simplifies and automates the labeling environment without custom programming, reduces manual workflow, improves efficiency, and guarantees uptime using TEKLYNX’ SENTINEL™ Print Pack print management software.

Reseller benefits
The power and ease-of-use features also make CODESOFT a great product for resellers and systems integrators to sell and support. The industry-specific compliance design opens doors to new industries and makes it easier to support existing customers. This, coupled with TEKLYNX’ online sales support, gives resellers an easy way to keep up with changing compliance standards.
