I need to find out what other Manufacturing companies do to print Product and Shipping labels. Is there a way from within Macola to print them, is there a third party program that others use, or do they use complete custom programs to print the Product and Shipping labels?

Right now we print out the work order (W/O) from Macola and send it to the shop. When they build the product they scan on the W/O and a customized Access database gets the information from Macola, assigns it a Serial Number and then the shop employee picks what product they need a label for. The database then decides what label to use and sends the data to a “Label Program” which loads the correct formatted label and prints the number of labels requested from the employee. It then prints out the shipping label for the product.

I guess my big question is, do other companies skip the middle part (scanning on the W/O in the shop to print the labels)?

We do not print product labels from the system. I've looked into it extensively. If I had the funding, I would probably go with this URL below with "Advanced POP" so I could have the floor report production instead of the front office and get real time with my usage. Good Luck. More to buy...

appreciate the response, thank you. We did think about that for a moment a few years ago I guess it's time to re-visit.
