NiceLabel Automation User Guide

Welcome To NiceLabel Automation

NiceLabel Automation is an automated printing application that integrates label printing into existing systems (software applications, production lines, weight-scales, etc).

It represents the optimal business label printing system by synchronizing business events with label production. Automated printing without human interaction is by far the most effective way to remove user errors and maximize performance

Automating label printing with a trigger-based application revolves around 3 core processes.

Print event trigger

Automated label printing is triggered by a business operation. NiceLabel Automation is set to supervise a folder, file, or a communication port. When a business operation takes place, a file change or incoming data is detected by the application. This triggers the label printing process.

Learn more about various Triggers:

  • File trigger
  • Serial port trigger
  • Database trigger
  • TCP/IP trigger
  • HTTP trigger
  • Web Service trigger

Label data extraction and placement

Once the printing is triggered, the NiceLabel Automation extracts label data and inserts it into variable fields on the label design.

Data extraction Filters support:

  • Structured text files
  • Unstructured text files
  • Various XML files

Printing action

When the data has been matched with variable fields on the label, NiceLabel Automation performs actions. Basic operations usually include the Open Label and Print Label actions, but a host of other actions are available, including printer selection, batch operation, data sending, and similar.

See more information about basic and advanced printing Actions.
