Label Traxx to showcase Version 7.1 at Labelexpo Americas

Label Traxx, the label industry’s job management software specialist, will unveil Version 7.1 of its industry-leading MIS system at this year’s Labelexpo. Taking place September 9-11 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, USA, Labelexpo Americas is the premier event for the label printing industry. Visitors to Booth 6023 will have the opportunity to experience the beta model of Label Traxx Version 7.1 MIS software.

Version 7.1 builds upon the success and performance of Version 7, which uses the latest 4D database technology. For this latest update, Label Traxx is 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, thus assuring users that data is backed up in case of emergencies.

When updating its MIS software, Label Traxx takes into account the feedback received from those who can provide the most practical insight – the software users themselves. “Version 7.1 improves upon Version 7 by integrating what our customers have said will increase their efficiencies – going paperless. And our new storage and back-up systems provide peace-of-mind, insuring no losses of data,” says Label Traxx President Ken Meinhardt.

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, a user-friendly, visual system for scheduling jobs and projects.

Meinhardt emphasizes that elements of Version 7.1 address Label Traxx software users’ requests to have the option of using a simplified, easy-to-use system. He explains, “Version 7.1 offers a simplified Estimate Interface. 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, loaded with features it is also available for complex jobs. And it allows companies to manage the estimate approval process, including setting profitability limits.”

“We’re really excited about Version 7.1, and Labelexpo is the perfect forum to show the industry how the latest Label Traxx software is the ideal tool to help label companies run in the most efficient and profitable ways,” concludes Meinhardt.

Now in its 21st year, Label Traxx is headquartered in Milwaukee, WI, USA, and has sales offices in the UK. Label Traxx also has resellers serving Australia, Brazil and Singapore.
