Spectrum 4.0 also introduces a new user interface (UI) to enhance usability and leverages Loftware’s DaVinci feature to provide powerful label comparison to speed label design and review.
Spectrum’s HTML5 user interface is optimized for mobile devices, including IOS devices, to allow customers to manage label printing and related business processes from anywhere, whether factory floor, warehouse or in the field. The streamlined interface maximizes productivity and further extends access to additional supply chain users.
The new user interface, combined with Spectrum’s Application Architect feature, provides customers with the flexibility to configure and run applications for all of their labeling and non-labeling related activities. This enables global users and supply chain partners to print labels on demand, track print job status or perform other functions with ease on any type of device. Users can also run applications outside the Spectrum interface, which are purpose-built and branded for their use.
Loftware DaVinci provides enhanced label comparison capabilities to speed label creation and review/approval process. Users can compare label templates directly while designing labels, or as part of a Spectrum application, which is part of a broader workflow process. With DaVinci, users can toggle between high resolution label versions to quickly proof content and highlight differences.
DaVinci lets users identify label duplicates and reduces the number of label templates they need to manage.
“Loftware’s end-to-end digital platform is redefining how enterprises create, manage and print complex labeling and packaging artwork and scale across their operations. With this new release we extend our leadership by offering the next level of user experience along with innovative capabilities that only Loftware can provide,” states Loftware VP of product management, Josh Roffman.
Spectrum 4.0 further enhances the user experience by offering enhanced navigation that provides easy access to key functions like label design, status, applications and printing. The release also introduces new colors and styles, and a redesigned user workspace to maximize productivity. Also, the new user interface is designed to meet the performance requirements of both on premise and cloud deployments.
Additionally, Spectrum 4.0 adds an enhanced bar code wizard, which streamlines creation and management of bar codes, including GS1 endorsed barc odes.
