Do you remember old-school labeling?
You’d have a label format for every one of your products – indeed, you’d have multiples because every PC you had connected to a printer would have its copy on a local drive?
It could be a nightmare when the data needed to change – important stuff like allergens and ingredients in many cases. Unfortunately, I’ve seen many customers with multiple revisions in use way too often.
At ID Technology, we specialize in using Loftware’s NiceLabel to solve many of these issues.
As well as being an excellent label design software package, NiceLabel also provides many enhancements that make label management easier and simplify the printing process.
NiceLabel is also an excellent tool for label management – their Label Management System being an ideal integrated solution for enterprises that can be hosted locally on the customer’s servers or in the cloud.
Another solution that is often ideal for smaller businesses is NiceLabel Cloud.
NiceLabel Cloud is a modern cloud-based solution that includes label design, template storage & management, printer management, etc.
The system includes the familiar NiceLabel Designer for producing your label templates and centralized cloud storage, ensuring that it is always the current version whenever a label is printed.
Unlike some enterprise-level label solutions, NiceLabel Cloud can work for smaller operations – any business where labels are designed and updated by more than one person (and have to go through an approval process) and meet regulatory requirements would be a good candidate.
Need to print labels in multiple locations, or perhaps you have contract manufacturers that need to print labels to your specifications? No problem, NiceLabel cloud has you covered with this as well.
IT Resources Needed
Being a cloud app, NiceLabel Cloud makes it simple for your IT team to set up new users and give them the appropriate permissions.
We use NiceLabel cloud ourselves for our remote sales and service teams to use for customer demos and support and have found it is a lot simpler to manage than the old systems with multiple license keys. Additionally, our implementation is linked to our Office 365 account, so all users use their Microsoft credentials to log in.
As your business grows, NiceLabel Cloud makes adding new users and locations easy to ensure your printing infrastructure keeps up.
Of course, NiceLabel Cloud integrates with your existing ERP or WMS systems (whether physical or in the cloud) to get the real-time data needed to populate your labels and help reduce potential human error.
Safety and Security.
The security of cloud apps is rightly hugely crucial to all businesses. However, we’ve found that many customers can be nervous about cloud applications for labeling, even though their CRM and financial data is often handed in the cloud by SaaS apps such as Salesforce.
NiceLabel Cloud is hosted on Microsoft Azure, a proven secure cloud platform with multiple redundancies to enhance uptime.
NiceLabel and Loftware have many years of experience in developing secure and efficient cloud-based applications and work closely with Microsoft to ensure the security of NiceLabel Cloud.
Not Ready for Cloud Labeling?
No problem – using NiceLabel in-house, especially if you include our ID Technology customized applications, provides many advantages over conventional labeling systems.
