Melbourne August 1st, 2013 – For 25 years, Intermec and SAP have partnered on the definition and design of data-collection systems required by SAP customers for bar code scanning, printing, mobile computing, and RFID. Intermec’s innovative industrial, desktop and rugged mobile printers are specifically designed for printing bar code labels in manufacturing, warehouse, shipping and other industrial environments – applications where SAP business solutions are employed across the globe.
Making integrated bar code labeling even easier, Intermec printers are now certified through the SAP Printer Vendor program with Intermec device types for SAP Smart Forms and mySAP™ Business Suite. Intermec has the broadest integrated printing support for SAP. All Intermec Direct Protocol (DP) based printers are compliant with the SAP® Printer Vendor Program.
Intermec supports integrated printing directly from legacy SAP applications. Intermec printers support printing from SAP R/3 using SAPScript formats uploaded to SAP. Intermec printers support printing from SAP Auto-ID Infrastructure (AII) using XML data streams and formats stored on the printer
In addition, Intermec has partnered with leading SAP-certified label design and print management software providers. Their software manages the print jobs from SAP and sends them to the correct printer, and offers other benefits to the customer including print queuing, load management, print status and verification. These services can be particularly important in manufacturing, medical device and pharmaceutical applications.
