Zebra Technologies Corp., a developer of specialty printing and automatic identification solutions, unveils its Enterprise Connector Solution, which is a versatile, easily managed central printing solution. This reliable thermal labeling software system allows customers to design and print labels directly from their ERP systems without complex middleware.
The Enterprise Connector Solution delivers a PC-based graphical user interface (GUI) used to create label designs that will be printed from ERP systems, such as those using Oracle BI Publisher. The completed design is then converted into Zebra Programming Language (ZPL) commands and uploaded to the server-based Enterprise Connector Transformation Engine. As customers process ERP transactions that require label printing, XML data streams are quickly converted into efficient ZPL commands. The ZPL commands are then sent to the desired printer.
Enabling customers to print labels directly from their existing ERP systems provides flexibility and delivers faster overall printing through enterprise-wide, geographically distributed, but centrally managed transaction-based systems.
The Enterprise Connector Solution consists of ZebraDesigner for XML, the Enterprise Connector Transformation Engine, and ZebraNet Bridge Enterprise?Zebra's advanced printer management software, which allows users to closely monitor printers to ensure maximum productivity. The Enterprise Connector Solution eliminates traditional middleware costs, such as per-printer licensing fees, and delivers faster throughput than traditional middleware-based solutions by leveraging the native bar-code, text, and graphic printing capabilities of Zebra printers.
