MILWAUKEE (PRWEB) December 7, 2006
TEKLYNX® International, the world's leading developer of software products for the AIDC marketplace, today introduced LABEL ARCHIVE - the first traceability product for label design and printing that provides complete archiving, approval, history and security for bar code and RFID label design and production environments. Designed to work with TEKLYNX' CODESOFT® and LABELVIEW™ Label Design and Printing software, LABEL ARCHIVE addresses the label control standards demanded in several industries, including healthcare, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing.
TEKLYNX LABEL ARCHIVE extends TEKLYNX' label design and printing functionality by implementing a comprehensive, networked database that adds an enterprise-level traceability and security layer to the entire label design and print process. It addresses four main areas:
•Archiving - LABEL ARCHIVE keeps every draft label version and records every commentator/editor and design change to enable authorized administrators to go back in time and open previous versions of the label.
•Approval - It enables multi-stage approval of label designs by designated reviewers prior to allowing the design to be printed in production. LABEL ARCHIVE manages all of the versions and authorizes and distributes only one "Approved" version.
•History - LABEL ARCHIVE extends control to production by maintaining a complete print history, reporting user, location, time, variable label data and other fields.
•Security - Taken together, Archiving, Approval and History create an unmatched traceability and security layer for bar code and RFID label design and printing. It is built in - administrators simply establish permissions and set parameters -- LABEL ARCHIVE takes care of the rest.
"TEKLYNX is setting the standard with the first product for securing the entire labeling process from design to print," commented David Pettiford, TEKLYNX global product marketing manager. "No other AIDC publisher has an enterprise-level label traceability product that is as secure, intuitive, easy to implement and comprehensive as LABEL ARCHIVE. Our centralized approach facilitates complete traceability to meet the most stringent U.S. and European regulatory requirements."
LABEL ARCHIVE supports virtually all compliance standards including RFID label standards, WEEE/RoHS, ISO, Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, CFR Part 11, AIAG, and the Sunrise Initiative. TEKLYNX LABEL ARCHIVE complements LABELVIEW 8.03 and CODESOFT 8.00.09 or higher label design and printing software, and is available immediately from TEKLYNX direct resellers.
