The Business & Technical Challenge

Sartori’s previous labeling process was not integrated with their JD Edwards Enterprise
Resource Planning (ERP) system and leveraged two di#erent labeling software
systems – Loftware and TEKLYNX’ LABELVIEW – to generate labels within the
facility. Using multiple applications with local workstation installations resulted in
di!culties for label design and template coordination and complications in the upgrade
and maintenance process. While the Quality Control team was entering information
into their systems for use on over 1,000 label templates, users were printing directly
from the design application. $is enabled print users to modify label designs on an ad
hoc basis, resulting in increased errors and administrative overhead.

The Solution

Sartori started researching labeling solutions and comparing options with their reseller,
Miles Data. The Miles Data and TEKLYNX sales teams worked together to help Sartori
reconstruct its labeling process and developed new ways to incorporate critical business
data from their ERP system into their label designs. “TEKLYNX provided a demo
platform for 30 days, which allowed us to see how the solution would work for us,” Rostkowski said. “That really gave them a leg up during the evaluation process.” After working in the demo system, Sartori con"rmed that TEKLYNX CENTRAL’s simple web interface was intuitive enough for team members to learn quickly, and would help Sartori lock down label designs and apply user restrictions based on job roles. Web-based access eliminated the need for individual workstation installations, which dramatically cut costs and administrative overhead.

The implementation plan involved integrating the solution with the JD Edwards ERP system and eliminating the data redundancy that came from simultaneously using an SQL database. The team also leveraged COMet, an automated capture tool within CODESOFT, to pull weight information from a scale into product label designs. During the implementation process, TEKLYNX sales engineers were available 24/7 to provide support and answer questions, and made periodic site visits to assist with configuration and ensure the system was working properly. “We had unique requirements, and TEKLYNX was always willing to help us,” said Rostkowski. “Our ERP system would have required custom development regardless of the labeling application we chose, and TEKLYNX offered round-the-clock support to make the integration work.”
