On-demand printing

Controlled printing reduces errors and improves productivity

NiceLabel’s all-inclusive suite of Design & Controlled Print software provides business users with a graphical label and form designer, controlled manual printing application and automation builder for integrating with existing business systems.

This powerful functionality removes the need for programmers to develop their own custom printing front-end or integration applications, which are difficult and costly to maintain. Business users can rapidly create a printing solution that streamlines label printing, prevents errors and mislabeling, reduces labor costs and improves overall print productivity.

Why forms?

Reduce manual printing efforts and achieve new levels of accuracy

Businesses can significantly reduce manual printing effort and achieve new levels of accuracy and control by using PowerForms unmatched on-demand print capabilities. PowerForms features empower business users to create custom printing applications, streamline complex printing processes and eliminating errors.

Reduce manual printing efforts and achieve new levels of accuracy

Prevent printing errors

Users can initiate on-demand printing via a simple scan, touch or minimal data entry and preview the results to ensure accuracy and speed of printing. Label preview offers a visual aide, displaying the entire print job to provide verification of labels to reduce the occurrence of mislabeling. This all helps remove the “guess work” from the print operator while reducing the occurrence of mislabeling.

Simplify the print process for nonskilled workers

Make it easy for nonskilled or seasonal workers to print your labels. Build a printing solution that uses images and icons to replace text or use buttons and touchscreen to remove the need for keyboard skills. You can rapidly onboard new print operators with minimal to no training.

Streamline complex printing processes

Custom forms allow end users to make the necessary decisions to print exactly what they want, when they want it, without deviating from a standard process or workflow. This reduces the manual printing efforts, improves the speed of printing and print productivity.

Maintain label integrity

When operators use printing forms, they don't have access to the label template, so they can't accidentally or intentionally modify the label layout or important label content.

Minimize manual data entry

Minimize manual data entry

Instead of requiring print operators to manually change label content, connect labels to a database and simplify data entry and selection. Consider initiating on-demand printing via a simple scan or press of a touch screen.

Responsive, touchscreen-ready interface

Resizable buttons and other controls enable you to create a form that adapts automatically to any screen resolution or size.

Made for labeling

Real-time data preview inside of the same forms ensures the user can verify if the label template and data are correct before printing.

Why automation?

Integrated printing with your existing business systems reduces risks of labeling errors and improves print productivity

Businesses can significantly reduce printing effort and achieve new levels of accuracy and productivity by using the Automation module’s unmatched integration capabilities. Automation’s features empower business users to integrate and automate printing from existing business systems without any coding. Automation also lets you integrate printing with hardware devices such as PLCs or weight scales. Automation empowers you to streamline complex printing processes, eliminating errors and improving print productivity.

Integration without coding

Integration without coding

NiceLabel Automation accepts and transforms data in any format so you don't have to customize your existing business systems or applications.

Works with all printers

NiceLabel Automation uses universal and dynamic label templates that work across thousands of printer models, which substantially reduces number of label variations and simplifies label management.

Data mapping

The built-in data mapping wizard helps you easily extract and map data from common formats like CSV or fixed-width text files. The mapping tool also supports legacy system modernization by supporting data in unstructured formats such as legacy reports or printer commands. Even binary data can be extracted and mapped!

Unmatched performance and reliability

Automation was architected from the ground up for the modern 64-bit multi-core architecture to provide the fastest, most reliable and efficient printing capability. Automation is a 100% native 64-bit application that eliminates the need for additional technology layers required by the previous generation of 32-bit applications. Automation includes NiceLabel’s next-generation “64-bit print engine" that takes advantage of new technologies to maximize print productivity while using minimum computer resources.

Business rules for maximum flexibility

Business rules allow for workflows and printing logic to be easily reconfigured, without any coding, so you can rapidly adapt the process to changing requirements without using development resources.
