Pocket NiceLabel enables Windows CE compatible computers and terminals to print barcode labels on any type of thermal printer that is supported by the NiceLabel printer drivers. Labels are designed in the easy-to-use and fully-featured NiceLabel Pro software on a standard Windows PC.
There are no limitations to the label size and there are endless options for using elements like text, graphics, barcodes, lines, etc. on your label design. Designed labels are transferred to the Windows CE terminal, where the user can chose the number of labels to print. And if the ability to communicate via a TCP/IP port, serial or IR communication between the CE terminal and the printer, Pocket NiceLabel can route print jobs to the desired printer.
As it does for the existing Windows computers, NiceLabel brings the power of custom data entry forms and applications to the Windows CE terminal for label printing. On the basis of your requirements, number and complexity of label formats, you can design your own complete custom label printing solution using multiple forms to achieve your goals. Forms can include label type selection, data selection, data input fields, menus, etc. All without the need to learn a custom programming language. Pocket NiceLabel doesn't just provide you with an efficient solution for every barcode labeling need, but also a reliable and user-friendly Windows CE label printing solution, based on specific customer's requirements.
Pocket NiceLabel or Pocket Form can be used to print a label directly to the printer using different connectivity options (COM port, IR port, TCP/IP socket). Values for variable fields can be entered or scanned prior to printing, label quantity can be set and printer selected.
The print procedure is just the same as with the desktop edition. No extra learning time is required.
Pocket NiceLabel software can output a JOB file to any shared disk in the Network Neighborhood (containing NiceCommands to describe the label printing process) and direct it to a specified TCP/IP socket. NiceWatch, a centralized automated label printing server, running on a Windows server, monitors the socket and does the actual label processing and printing.
Mobile users from within the enterprise can print a label from any location to any printer available.
Print Engine is a COM object (ActiveX server), which gives other applications on the Windows CE terminal the ability to control label-printing functions. Your Windows CE application can print labels using NiceLabel as the print server. The developer does not need to worry about embedding printer code into their application with Print Engine. Labels are graphically designed and exported in NiceLabel Pro, ready for use on the Windows CE device.
Controlling label printing functions from a data collection application on Windows CE has never been easier.
