When many people across a company have access to barcode labeling programs, equipment, and templates, problems can accidentally interrupt the flow of processes. Access to software and hardware programming can be easily managed with password protections and centralized management programs.
A proper barcode management system helps you and your clients ensure compliance standards are met within industry standards while managing and tracking inventory from beginning to end.
Zebra Technologies and Imprint Enterprises are here to help you understand the purpose and function of the various barcode options that are available to you.
Printer Profile Management Enterprise
Zebra’s Printer Profile Manager Enterprise (PPME), part of their Print DNA suite of tools, can manage all barcode label printers from one location, no matter where they are located. Security access to change templates and configurations are safeguarded, minimizing error-prone manual processes.
All networked Link-OS® printers can be managed from a single location, including updating printer software, creating and distributing configurations from your browser, and automatically updating WLAN security certificates for each printer. This remote management can minimize time and cost and maximize printer uptime by scheduling updates at a time that minimizes disruptions.
Setting up PPME is fast and easy with the integrated self-installer. Every networked Link-OS printer is quickly discovered without having to physically locate it. Each printer, and even Link-OS card printers, can be organized with tag names you create. A quick press of a button can provide you a visual status on every printer connected to the system, using green, yellow, or red alerts.
Zebra’s VisibilityIQ™ DNA, available with every Zebra device, is a centralized management program with real-time visibility to see all the data you need as you need it. This program provides greater mobility through mobile computers while easily using thermal printers efficiently.
VisibilityIQ™ DNA features PowerPrecision Console, Device Diagnostics, StageNow, and WorryFree WiFi. The PowerPrecision Console provides battery health updates by color-coded categories so batteries can be replaced before impacting the employees using the devices. Device Diagnostics can reveal maintenance issues before it becomes a disruption.
These features improve the performance of barcode label printers so your company can run more efficiently and productively. VisibilityIQ™ DNA can improve uptime while streamlining asset management.
Remote Device Management Service
Imprint also has a remote device management service that can help maintain and manage your devices for you, assisting you during downtime and addressing any security gaps there may be. Imprint keeps track of your equipment needs and activity so you don’t have to.
Through the remote device management service, a dedicate remote person can investigate any problem and provide solutions. They can also collect data you need from your devices, review your dashboard and reports, and get you the information you need. It is a way to have oversight without spending your time.
