Optimizing Label Printing from Mobile Devices
The latest release of Loftware’s flagship Enterprise Labeling Solution, Loftware Spectrum 4.0, enables users to design label printing applications purpose-built for mobile devices, which streamlines global labeling processes. Spectrum 4.0 also introduces a new user interface (UI) to enhance usability and leverages Loftware’s DaVinci feature to provide powerful label comparison to speed label design and review.
Spectrum’s HTML5 user interface is optimized for mobile devices, including IOS devices, to allow customers to manage label printing and related business processes from anywhere. The streamlined interface maximizes productivity and further extends access to additional supply chain users.
The new user interface combined with Spectrum’s Application Architect feature provides customers with unlimited flexibility to configure and run applications for all of their labeling and non-labeling related activities. This enables global users and supply chain partners to print labels on demand, track print job status or perform other functions with ease on any type of device. Users can also run applications outside the Spectrum interface which are purpose-built and branded for their use.
Loftware DaVinci provides sophisticated label comparison capabilities to speed label creation and review/approval process. Users can compare label templates directly while designing labels, or as part of a Spectrum application which is part of a broader workflow process. With DaVinci, users can toggle between high resolution label versions to quickly proof content and highlight differences. DaVinci lets users identify label duplicates and reduces the number of label templates they need to manage.
Spectrum 4.0 offers enhanced navigation that provides easy access to key functions like label design, status, applications and printing. The release also introduces new colors and styles and a redesigned user workspace to maximize productivity. Also, the new user interface is designed to meet the performance requirements of both on premise and cloud deployments.
The label solution also adds an enhanced barcode wizard which streamlines creation and management of barcodes, including GS1 endorsed barcodes.
