With the new year just around the corner, we want to ensure your tracking and labeling system is running the best it can. We have created simple steps you can take to make sure your tracking and labeling system is easy to use and reliable.

1. Update your software

    • Pay attention to the end-of-life dates. The time and effort is well worth it to avoid the cost and stress of doing the upgrade while your labeling and tracking system (and possibly production) is down. Avoid some of these common problems that can occur by skipping new versions:
      • Changes in the font type and size
      • Shifting of label elements (text, images, barcodes, etc.)
      • Database connection issues
      • User-generated formulas within the label fail
      • Loss of inventory list

2. Check all your hardware and perform any necessary maintenance

    • Your hardware may need maintenance too. It's a good idea to set a reminder to check it twice a year to make sure you are not low on supplies and avoid any maintenance problems.
