Press release from the issuing company
Milwaukee, WI, October 2005—Tailored Solutions Label Traxx—the popular print business management software for flexographic narrow web label printers and converters—now connects seamlessly with Raflatac. With this new feature, Label Traxx customers can access the Raflatac order system directly from their software, making ordering Raflatac label stock easy, fast and reliable. Printers using Label Traxx can dramatically reduce order entry time by connecting directly and securely to Raflatac Business Line, thus eliminating double entries and greatly reducing the risk of errors. Raflatac systems also provide immediate order confirmation and advance shipment notice data. Using the convenient bar code scanning feature of Label Traxx software, users can scan incoming and work-in-process Raflatac material to easily maintain an accurate inventory.
In discussing the enhancement, Tailored Solutions president Ken Meinhardt commented: “Label printers and converters now can use the most popular job management software in the industry to deal directly with another major vendor of label stock. Tailored Solutions is proud to be the first and only software provider to fill this need.”
