Loftware Inc. has announced Loftware Spectrum 2.8, the latest release of a 100% browser-based solution designed to meet complex, high volume customer and regulatory labeling requirements across global enterprises.
Spectrum 2.8 introduces new Multi-Site capabilities, allowing customers to leverage a single deployment of Spectrum across multiple geographies and remote facilities while synchronizing with a central location. The release also provides new levels of control over global printer networks and enhanced print job visibility.
With Spectrum’s new Multi-Site capability, business users at facilities including manufacturing plants, contract manufacturer sites, warehouses and DCs can manage labeling independently when required, while accessing standard and approved label data and templates from a company’s central location. This empowers facilities to run without depending on a full-time connection to headquarters while ensuring that they comply and stay current with corporate labeling standards.
Companies can also have users at facilities access Spectrum deployed at headquarters with the ability to failover to a local instance in cases where connectivity to headquarters is disrupted. This capability provides companies with centralized control while ensuring continuous labeling operations at the facility level. Spectrum objects such as users, groups, label templates and devices are maintained at the central site, and transactional data is synchronized based on a schedule for each facility or once connectivity is regained.
Spectrum 2.8’s Device Queue Management allows enhanced control and flexibility to manage and troubleshoot printers and print jobs. It also enables users to control jobs from initiation to printing, manage the priority of print jobs, and optimize device usage across the enterprise.
