Intuitive Interface Streamlines Labeling Logic

Loftware, Inc., offers Loftware Spectrum 3.0, the latest release of the company's 100% browser-based solution designed to meet complex, high volume customer and regulatory labeling requirements across global enterprises.

Spectrum 3.0 introduces a Business Rules Configurator, an intuitive interface, which empowers business users to streamline the creation and management of labeling logic with easy drag and drop capabilities. Spectrum 3.0 also provides enhancements to Spectrum's Application Architect, for on-demand label printing, enabling users to create label related applications within Spectrum that streamline labeling and reduce the cost to create and maintain custom applications.

With Spectrum's Business Rules Configurator, business users can quickly and easily implement sophisticated business logic without requiring IT assistance. Spectrum 3.0 includes a library of pre-built "blocks" that enable users to create common logic sequences that accelerate the building of even the most complex business rules. Also, a Reusable Rules Library can be shared with others to prevent rework, offer time savings and ensure consistency. The Business Rules Configurator also enables users to easily test and log data to validate that new business rules meet existing requirements.

The release also adds new capabilities and further streamlines application creation within Application Architect. Customers utilize Application Architect to design complex, intelligent data entry pages with drag and drop ease and to dynamically make decisions based on user input. It includes a "wizard" that guides the end user down the appropriate path based on their selections, removing any guesswork while reducing the occurrence of errors or mislabeling. Spectrum 3.0 introduces expanded table/grid functionality giving users increased control over data viewing and entry while enabling table data to be easily imported or exported.

Additional features for Spectrum 3.0 include:

  • Expanded cross-reference table support enables users to create and manage data within Spectrum so they have all the data needed for label processing directly within their labeling solution. This feature, which offers complete control and increased security for managing all labeling centric data, allows reference data currently residing in external repositories or spreadsheets to now be managed directly within Loftware Spectrum.
  • Enhanced support for the printing of PDF documents, which can be done natively to printers and devices that support PDF printing. Importantly, this functionality also allows for PDFs to be printed to devices, like thermal printers, that typically do not support PDF printing. This new functionality also enables user to store, manage, print and email PDFs from within Loftware Spectrum.
  • More choices for SAP integration by supporting integration via SAP Smart Forms and Interactive Forms by Adobe, which enables users to optimize print speeds and gain added Print Queue Management capabilities. Spectrum allows users to consolidate their SAP printing by using SAP's Extended Output Management interface (BC-XOM) and incudes RDI, XSF, XFP and XML file formats to leverage existing SAP technologies already in use by your organization.
  • Expanded versioning capabilities for business rules, processes and workflows to provide even greater control over production environments by extending versioning to these objects. This ultimately improves traceability, which is especially critical for companies working in validated industries, including medical devices and pharmaceutical.
