Due to the copy process, the label printer can work independently of the type of data source, such as PDF document, spread sheet table or data record of a database, and independent of its storage location: whether local computer, central server or cloud, eXtra4<dropIT> works without access to the third-party system.
The task of eXtra4<dropIT> as a printing tool is the conversion of the copied data into printable labels. The software uses scripting technology for this purpose. A script program must be created individually. It generates and transfers not only the printable label contents, but also the necessary control commands for the connected printer.
In order to correctly interpret the data transferred by eXtra4<dropIT> for the upcoming print job, the target printer must be prepared. The configuration in advance is done by the label printing software eXtra4<winIII> in its free edition "Lite".
In manual printing mode, eXtra4<dropIT> generates a preview of the label waiting for output in the program window. Here, the user has the possibility to edit label contents as desired. If more than one printed label is desired, the print run can also be changed. In order for the printer to start, the user must manually trigger the printing process at the end.
Our labelling systems in the field of software and associated services are supported by our subsidiary eXtra4 Software+Service GmbH.
In order to allow all employees to print labels, the purchase of a license of eXtra4 Printing Tools for label printing with eXtra4<winIII> Edition "Lite" includes the possibility to use the program on any number of computers within a company (site license).
If a company has several locations, a separate license must be purchased for each location.
