Label Generation
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Automation is crucial for a thriving business as our world moves towards a digital transformation. By automating processes, enterprises are able to make their workflows faster and are doing more with less. Your barcode labeling environment is no exception. With automated label printing, you can create a labeling process that is faster, more efficient and has zero room for errors.

Label print automation is leveraged by organizations to terminate the manual process of triggering a print job within a labeling environment. Print automation replaces the manual task of creating and printing a label with an automatic, faster, and more efficient process. The main goal of print automation is to minimize touchpoints within the labeling process. Humans are prone to error, so minimizing human interaction will lead to fewer mistakes and an efficient workflow.

A complete label print automation solution integrates Quixy and printing technologies with your existing ERP, WMS, or custom front-end system. Within a blink of an eye, your print automation software can prompt a print job using the data from your ERP, automatically populate your labels, and print to an unlimited number of printers.

Quixy can help you with the automation of label printing

Creating a more streamlined process for your label printing users can be achieved through the “Quickflows” feature in Quixy.

Quickflows is a lifesaver feature that, by large, cuts down the user’s time to perform a resultant workflow step. You can call it a “work done in a jiffy” feature. However, out of several options to choose from under the Quickflows’ belt, let us focus on one specific choice.

The general flow contains a series of steps as follows

  • The user inputs the data into the system to initiate the process
  • System pushes the data to Quixy
  • Quixy receives the data given by the user and processes the data to the system
  • Quixy then sends a Label print job to the printers and prints the labels

The process flow is illustrated below.
