Introduction

NiceLabel Software for Microsoft Windows Terminal Services and Citrix MetaFrame white paper provides information how NiceLabel software can be used in these two environments. It explains the basic principles using of these systems and describes the steps to enable label printing from NiceLabel.

Microsoft Windows Terminal Services or Citrix MetaFrame environments can be very useful software when your company has decentralized offices, warehouses or places where you need to produce labels. You do not have to purchase standalone licenses for the software you are running in the company. Instead you purchase a pool of licenses that is installed to the Windows server computer. The licenses are more efficiently in use and you have an overall view to their consumption.

Key benefits of using Microsoft Terminal Services or Citrix MetaFrame are the following.

  • Centralized administration
    NiceLabel Suite Network client runs only on the server, where MS Terminal Services or Citrix MetaFrame service is set up. The main benefit is that the administration of the whole environment is done only from one site. The change on the server computer is directly applied to all clients.
  • Low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
    Total cost of ownership is economical, as you only have to purchase NiceLabel Suite Network edition and not standalone NiceLabel editions for each workstation. Price per Network workstation is significantly lower compared to standalone editions.
    You can also take advantage of the older computer equipment and bring it to life. As no software is actually running on the client computer, you do not need to have state-of-the-art latest computers. All the processing is done on the server, the client only shows the output on the monitor.
  • High ROI (Return on Investment)
    Main reason for high ROI is better productivity. With NiceLabel software it is possible to produce advanced labels in matter of seconds, no matter where your location of the office is.
    This white paper describes how to install and maintain NiceLabel Suite Network installation for such purpose.
