TEKLYNX enterprise label management solutions are designed to work seamlessly in cloud environments. To start cloud-enabled labeling discussions, the first thing to understand is the difference between public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud environments.
Many of our large enterprise clients deploy TEKLYNX CENTRAL label management solution on a private cloud server, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure, with CODESOFT barcode label design software installed locally. Or sometimes, CODESOFT is also on a private cloud and label design users leverage RDS (remote desktop services) to access it. This enables secure label printing anywhere in the world with an internet or network connection.
NOTE: Regional differences may apply to offerings and processes. Contact TEKLYNX in your region to learn more.
TEKLYNX can provide our solutions as SaaS. When we deploy our SaaS model, we build you a private cloud server in AWS or Azure and provide an SSL certificate, securing your label printing interface with HTTPS. The service aspect of the SaaS deployment is variable depending on the level of service that the deployment requires. Common levels of SaaS range from simply installing and upgrading, to full management including label design. These service levels can be applied to any deployment.
Our SaaS model means the only resources required on your side are someone to approve label templates, a print user, label printers, label stock, and a modern web browser.
The cost of your cloud-hosted browser-based label printing system depends on how many print users require access to the print interface. Label design, implementation, and training services are a one-time cost. The hosting fee can be paid periodically.
One of the biggest advantages of using the cloud for business continuity is that label data can be accessed from anywhere. This helps minimize downtime of critical business functions in the event of an outage, since employees can access data from virtually anywhere. Also, a reliable cloud service provider gives companies many ways to avoid data loss, including built-in redundancy, failover, backup, automatic logging, and monitoring – allowing for shorter recovery time compared with on-premises alternatives.
As a business, your main objective is to make a profit, and minimizing IT expenses helps your bottom line. With cloud-enabled labeling, you forgo the costs of purchasing or updating servers and hardware for setting up or maintaining your own data center. You also minimize the need for IT professionals to manage your servers and the electricity bill plus other costs that come with running an on-premise server. If reducing IT expenses is your number one goal, you can use a cloud-enabled labeling solution or cloud server that TEKLYNX assists you in managing.
With cloud technology, there’s no need to purchase on-premise systems, hardware, and individual software licenses, making it easy to redistribute resources to other initiatives. If you’re considering migrating aspects of your labeling to the cloud, get in touch so we can better understand your needs and discuss the best labeling software and hosting options for your business.
While it’s not an exhaustive list of ways we see our customers leveraging the cloud, these scenarios are common use cases where the organization could benefit from cloud-enabled and browser-based label printing:
Deploying your browser-based label printing interface in the cloud is highly secure. In fact, cloud hosting can be more secure than on-premise hosting.
