What Is labelNow?

labelNOW allows you to print production labels that identity materials moving around your factory. With labelNOW, you can design your own label format or choose from standard formats, such as WIP Label (with the option to add a lot or serial number), Scrap Ticket, or Move Ticket.

Unique Features & Capabilities

Point-of-Transaction Printing

When an employee reports a job finished, ShopVue can automatically print the desired label(s). This eliminates the need to preprint labels and the possibility that an employee might mistakenly pick the wrong label.

Custom Formatting

Anybody, with the appropriate permission setting, can create new label formats using a simple WYSIWYG editor. You can add graphics, 1D or 2D barcodes, lines and boxes, and any data elements from the ShopVue database.

Unique Identifiers

labelNOW can help you reliably identify every bin, lot, or scrap part on the shop floor. If there’s a problem, properly labeled parts will enable you to trace exactly where the problem occurred.

Label Reprinting

To reduce unnecessary operator steps, ShopVue typically prints labels automatically when operators report activity. Operators can, however, reprint labels in the event the printer fails or a label is lost or damaged.

Broad Compatibility

labelNOW is compatible with any printer configured to work with Microsoft Windows, including popular Zebra desktop, industrial, and mobile barcode printers.

Why Do I Need WIP Labels?

Having to preprint labels prior to entering the shop floor reduces process efficiency and introduces the risk that an employee will mistakenly choose the wrong label. Likewise, stand-alone label generation systems require data entry that consumes time and can result in errors. 

With labelNOW, the correct label can be configured to print automatically and on demand as soon as an employee reports a job completed. Employees on the factory floor, with the appropriate permission settings, also can create or modify label format using a simple, user-friendly text editor (WYSIWYG) and assets from the integrated ShopVue database.

How Do We Measure The Value Of Production Labels?

Don’t waste time and don’t make easily avoidable mistakes. Nothing is more important to your factory’s operation than efficiency and reliability, and labelNOW increases both. By eliminating the need to preprint production labels, you’ll save time and reduce risk of error, while ensuring accurate and granular documentation of the materials on your shop floor.
