Label Traxx Updates MIS Software


MILWAUKEE, WI | Label Traxx, supplier of job management software, will unveil Version 7.1 of its MIS system at Labelexpo Americas 2014, September 9–11, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

Version 7.1 builds upon Version 7, which uses the latest 4D database technology. For this latest update, the company focused on advancing the “paperless office” with a new external document system that can store multiple document types, including PDF, .MOV, .DOC, .XLS and others. The storage system has been added to all areas of the program for storing the paper trail, proofs, ISO, and other information.

Also new to Version 7.1 is on-screen backup verification, where users can view from the home screen the last successful backup. If a backup is not complete, an email notification is sent, assuring users that data is backed up in case of emergencies.

“Version 7.1 improves upon Version 7 by integrating what our customers have said will increase their efficiencies–going paperless,” says Label Traxx president Ken Meinhardt. “And our new storage and back-up systems provide peace-of-mind, ensuring no losses of data.”

Company says additional enhancements found in Version 7.1 include an improved connection from JDF/JML to the Esko Automation Engine and digital press front ends with more specific job data being sent. Here, messages are automated when job changes are entered.

Version 7.1 also features the integration of Gantt Chart Software, said to be a user-friendly, visual system for scheduling jobs and projects. “Version 7.1 also offers a simplified Estimate Interface,” says Meinhardt. “This optional component allows for basic quoting as many label printers prefer a rudimentary tool for salespeople or inexperienced estimators to generate quotes. While this interface allows for basic estimating, [it is] loaded with features so is also [suited] for complex jobs. And it allows companies to manage the estimate approval process, including setting profitability limits.”
