Tailored Solutions’ Label Traxx, the print business management software for flexographic narrow web label printers and converters, now connects its European users with UPM Raflatac. Via Raflink Direct Link, European Label Traxx users can access the Raflatac order system directly from their software, making ordering Raflatac labelstock easy, fast and reliable, according to the companies.
Printers using Label Traxx can reduce order entry time by connecting directly and securely to the UPM Raflatac Raflink Business Line, thus eliminating double entries and reducing the risk of errors. UPM Raflatac systems also provide immediate order confirmation and advance shipment notice data. Using the bar code scanning feature of Label Traxx software, users can scan incoming and work-in-process UPM Raflatac material to maintain an accurate inventory.
Tailored Solutions President Ken Meinhardt says, “Label printers and converters in both Europe and North America now can use the most popular job management software in the industry to deal directly with a major vendor of labelstock. Tailored Solutions is proud to be the first and only software provider to fill this need.”
UPM Raflatac, a UPM Label Division, is a supplier of paper based and film pressure sensitive labelstock and radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and inlays. UPM Raflatac has manufacturing facilities in Finland, France, Spain, the United Kingdom, Australia, China, Malaysia, South Africa, and the United States. UPM Raflatac self-adhesive roll stock is sold to converters and printers through a network of terminals and sales offices throughout the world.
