TEKLYNX ANNOUNCES AVAILABILITY OF SENTINEL PRINT PACK S/3 HOST CONNECTIVITY SOFTWARE
Connects data to bar codes anywhere in the enterprise.
MILWAUKEE - Feb. 25, 2002 - TEKLYNX® International, the world's leading developer of software products for the AIDC marketplace, today announced the availability of its SENTINEL(TM) Print Pack S/3 host connectivity software for bar code label printing. This powerful, yet easy-to-use, middleware application provides a link between host data and bar codes.
With SENTINEL Print Pack S/3, companies can now integrate their labeling operations with enterprise-level data sources, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) or warehouse management systems (WMS), to increase the timeliness and accuracy of label production.
SENTINEL Print Pack S/3 host connectivity software includes the TEKLYNX CODESOFT(TM) label design software package, which provides label design and printing capabilities. Users simply create the label format by inserting variable fields, graphics or bar coding information as they would with a standalone application. SENTINEL Print Pack S/3 software connects the data from enterprise applications to the variable elements defined in the label via a "map" file created from a sample data stream.
SENTINEL Print Pack S/3 host connectivity software can use standard report data as input for generating bar code labels without the need for custom programming. It adheres to extensible markup language (XML) conventions to ensure tight integration with the widest range of applications. Other features include multi-threaded processing for simultaneous label printing throughout the enterprise and application integration with leading enterprise data sources, such as Oracle's WMS.
"SENTINEL Print Pack S/3 software is unbelievably powerful in its ability to map data streams," said David Pettiford, product manager at TEKLYNX International. "The days of custom coding to meet the specific input format requirements of a middleware package are gone. If your system outputs standard reports, XML, delimited text files, or any structured file; SENTINEL Print Pack S/3 can easily map the data you want to a bar code label in a matter of minutes. No other package on the market offers this kind of flexibility or power. It's ideal for distributed, even international, inventory, warehouse and shipping and receiving situations."
In addition to its data mapping capabilities, the TEKLYNX middleware centralize s enterprise label printing to provide a secure, reliable single source solution for all critical labeling needs. SENTINEL Print Pack S/3 connectivity software speeds enterprise label implementations, reduces development costs, enhances printer performance, simplifies label maintenance, and provides superior label output.
SENTINEL Print Pack S/3 host connectivity software supports over 1000 thermal transfer printers and any Microsoft Windows-based printer driver.
