Without change there’s often no room for innovation or improvement. That’s why it’s important to evaluate your label printing system and process regularly to look for ways to be better. One of the most important aspects of your barcode label printing system is your printing process – it’s the key to your finished product. Here are three ways TEKLYNX software can help you print barcode labels…better.
1. GENERATE LABEL PRINT JOBS FROM SEPARATE DEVICES
One of the first major steps to take when you’re looking to print barcode labels more efficiently is seeking out ways to eliminate manual steps in your barcode label printing process. One way of kick-starting that is with triggering print jobs from devices that are currently a part of your labeling environment. With device integration, variable data is printed on barcode labels automatically, eliminating any need for manual data entry.
PortWatch, a feature in CODESOFT, allows you to collect data from several devices such as:
Triggering a label print job from a device creates a greater level of efficiency that ultimately reduces manual error and increases print speed in your barcode label printing system.
2. UTILIZE FORMS TO DESIGN YOUR IDEAL LABEL PRINTING PROCESS
Using forms in your label printing process can separate print users from the design interface to ensure data is formatted correctly and no unintended edits are made. Form Designer is a tool that helps enforce user roles within your team, distinguishing between the label designer and the person that clicks print. Form Design is unique in the sense that the print user doesn't even have to open the label design software in order to print labels.
Form Editor is similar to Form Designer in the sense that they both enforce data entry so your formatting will always be correct. Form Editor allows you to add unique items onto your form for a personalized & efficient experience, built right into your label designer.
