Label printing software
Edition <Advanced Connect>
Label printing with eXtra4<winIII> off
The "Advanced Connect" software edition is subject to a charge and has the same professional level of label printing as the "Advanced" edition. Two additions bring a clear plus in performance: Edition "Advanced Connect" enables users with their own desktop database to print labels from their existing databases. On the other hand, it offers users of the database integrated in eXtra4<winIII> the option of data export.
Professional label printing
Label printing can be carried out simultaneously on 4 label printers with Edition "Advanced Connect". Any number of label layouts can be used. The print run height is unlimited.
A company can therefore print labels in parallel at up to four locations, e.g. on 4 floors, at one location with the eXtra4<winIII> software and keep up to four different label types ready for printing. Printed labels are immediately at hand if required. Label rolls do not have to be changed constantly for printing different label types.
This saves time, effort and costs.
Overview Software Features
Features of the Edition <Advanced Connect>
You can find an overview of all features that ensure ease of use in label printing and are equally included in all program editions of eXtra4<winIII> under >> Basic functions
Simple Administration - articles/addresses
The label printing software extra4<winIII>
has an integrated, local database. Data for marking an article can be read out there and output as a label. This saves time and effort for repeated typing and ensures that contents are always printed in the same form. It is also possible to print a list of the stored articles. Article numbers as keys to the database
The label database of extra4<winIII>
works on the basis of article numbers. If users already use article numbers, article data can be entered under the existing number. The article data can be retrieved via the article number and printed out as individual labels or via batch processing in serial printing.
If the user does not yet have a numbering system, extra4<winIII> automatically generates an article number when creating a new article via hierarchically structured article groups. The hierarchy of the article groups needs to be well thought out and is stored by the user according to his own structures in the program previously.
Space for additional information
The database of eXtra4<winIII> offers besides the article data for the label printing additional storage space for memo texts of any length, e.g. to note evaluations or further product descriptions.
A small product image (thumbnail) can also be stored in the data record for quick identification of an article. If a product is to be portrayed in more detail with photos, it is recommended to use the additional function "Image management".
Simple address management
The label printing software extra4<winIII> also uses its integrated database for address management. It generates shipping labels from entered address data. Once the sender line and other parameters have been defined, address labels can be printed individually.
Each registered address receives a unique address code as a search criterion, e.g. the customer or supplier number. The data record is created under this code and the addressee is recorded with his data. A categorization allows addresses to be sorted according to suppliers, customers and other categories
Advanced Administration - articles
The label printing software extra4<winIII> with its integrated, local database now has extended possibilities. In addition to the information required for labelling, stock levels of already created articles can be managed and additional information can be stored. Even an inventory can be carried out with eXtra4<winIII>.
Individual expansion of master data
The extended article management of extra4<winIII> supplements the master data with a multitude of individually adaptable fields. They can be used e.g. for information on the purchase of an article (price, quantity, time, recommended sales price) or for evaluations and further descriptions.
The article number of the vendor is created as an additional key field. Articles are now found in the database not only under the vendor's own article number, but also under the vendor's article number.
In the container management of the label printing program eXtra4<winIII> the storage locations of articles can be recorded. Each container, like e.g. a drawer or display and a drawer or a shop window receives a unique container code as storage location. The articles are assigned to this code as content. This makes it easier to locate and check them.
Advantages for barcode users
Printed barcode labels from the article management of eXtra4<winIII> simplify the recording of goods movements and inventory. Instead of typing in article numbers by hand, you scan the barcode, get to the data record of the article and record the stock there. For example, barcode labels that were removed at the point of sale can be scanned later and posted as sales.
Purchases can be stored in the database particularly efficiently if suppliers also use barcodes. If you have entered the supplier's article number as an additional search key in the inventory data, you only have to scan the supplier barcode to jump to the relevant article in the database and the goods receipt can be posted.
Data evaluation and inventory
Users of the label printing program eXtra4<winIII> can use the data stock in their database for evaluations. The software provides standard lists that users can easily adapt to their individual requirements. A report generator generates screen previews or printouts, but also outputs the list formatted as PDF or XLS files.
Inventory is probably the most important form of data evaluation. With the help of inventory control, current article quantities can be easily recorded at any time in the eXtra4<winII> software, compared with target inventories and differences determined. Users call up the article to be checked via its article number, ideally via scanner via barcode, and enter the counted quantity. Integrated lists enable the output of corresponding overviews, so that a correction posting can be made if necessary.
Photo documentation for articles
The image management of the label printing software extra4<winIII> enables the management of several high-resolution images of an article. Whereas previously only a single small image (thumbnail) was used in article management to identify an article more quickly, image management uses the integrated article database to manage large, often confusing quantities of professional photo documents. Archived in this way, image files are easily searchable and easily accessible.
The image management as a separate additional function links an article from the article master with an unlimited number of image files, even in the high resolution of current cameras. Thus, for example, several recording perspectives can be assigned to an article. The retrieval of the original image files is considerably facilitated, since the storage location is listed in the data record. The images can be sent together in one selection - by e-mail via the address management directly from the software eXtra4<winIII>
Database Connection - local
Databases in direct access
Label printing from external databases is possible with the extra4<winIII> software. It directly accesses local databases and imports data from there directly into the label layout selected as the entry maskn.
The program extra4<winIII>
does not import data from the foreign database, but works directly with the information stored there. Field contents are read out via a search key, e.g. the article number, and transferred to the label on the basis of a defined field connection. The data transfer can be done for single articles or by defined selection criteria as serial print for several articles simultaneously in batch processing. Desktop databases as data source
Desktop databases such as eXtra4<winIII> are suitable for direct access by the label printing program:•
and similar •
but also spreadsheet tables, such as Excel
Data evaluation via export
The software extra4<winIII> offers complete freedom in data evaluation to users of its integrated database with the export function. It transposes data into the Excel format: A specific selection combines any fields of the data records as an export job. The program delivers the selected data in an xls file or xlsx file, where users can conveniently edit them individually and compile them into lists.
