MILWAUKEE, WI | Label Traxx has launched version 7 of its MIS software, said to use the latest database technology from 4D and include many new enhancements.
The new version has tighter roll traceability features and an upgraded custom report writer, company says. Super Reports has a completely revised interface, with a number of new features said to make it easier to design and build your own reports. The new version is compatible with all existing super reports, including the hundreds available online for customers to download and customize.
Two new import features have been introduced. First, similarly constructed products can be created on the fly by duplicating an existing label product and importing new product IDs and descriptions. Secondly a spreadsheet of existing product numbers and their order quantities can now be imported into a Label Traxx production ticket. Both features reportedly can save a significant amount of time for companies that deal with customers with large numbers of sorts/SKUs. A new feature has also been added that will quickly apply price updates to all products within a defined product group.
Company says estimating module will now support HP Indigo’s Enhanced Productivity Mode (EPM). Using HP Indigo’s EPM feature, color jobs use only three inks instead of four, said to eliminate black ink without compromising on print quality. EPM reportedly enables converters to produce color jobs 33% faster, while gaining overall cost savings.
Version 7 provides an option in the press record to apply EPM when calculating job costs and quoting them to a customer. Version 7 is also prepared for the launch of the HP Indigo 20000 by including the press’s costing model in its estimating module.
“We are delighted with the launch version 7, and we are enjoying installing the new program at existing and new customers,” says Label Traxx president Ken Meinhardt. “The new features are a culmination of requests from our install base and will certainly help our customers to further streamline and increase productivity.”
