Executive Summary

The labeling software market, although not as saturated as some others, is full of products with ambiguous names, so-called professional and corporate editions, product packages, and special offers. Cutting through the marketing veils and understanding what it is that they actually offer forces the client to compare technical specification tables and function lists, both an arduous and confusing task. These products are meant to be put into practical use, and the information that the client truly needs is a comparison of practical applications of the products he's considering.

This white paper focuses on NiceWatch, a cutting-edge middleware labeling integration module. As there are two drastically different versions of NiceWatch available, the white paper will present a set of practical test cases which most accurately illustrate the differences in intended uses and performance of NiceWatch and NiceWatch Enterprise.

The paper will look into the nominal differences in the technical features of the two applications; it will also present the results of capacity stress tests and compare them, then provide suggestions on the most appropriate practical purposes of both applications based on those tests.
The assumption before the beginning of the tests was that NiceWatch Enterprise, by employing multiple print engines to handle workloads on multiple printers, performs significantly faster than it's counterpart in complex printing scenarios.

While it does not take an industrial test to observe the clear difference in the speeds of both products, the tests were performed in order to accurately quantify this difference in numerical values, based on controlled environment measurements
