    What Is NiceLabel's Backstory? 

    Established in 1993, NiceLabel has been a leading, global developer of label design software and label management systems. Their goal is to help companies of all sizes improve the quality, speed, and efficiency of their production when printing barcode labels, all while reducing costs. They sell a variety of products, with a host of features that allow them to accommodate the differing needs of manufacturers, including Designer Express, Designer Pro, and PowerForms 1 User and PowerForms Suite.

    NiceLabel has recently combined with Loftware, Inc., the global leader in Enterprise Labeling & Artwork Management Solutions, under the Loftware corporate umbrella. 

    This Loftware NiceLabel union will now give customers and business partners an expanded choice of solutions including:

    • Enhanced labeling capabilities
    • Greater investment in cloud-based solutions and technologies
    • Sixty years of combined expertise in solving labeling challenges for companies of all sizes, over a wide range of industries, globally

    What Does the Software Offer Your Business? 

    According to Loftware NiceLabel, their software products will allow anyone to design barcode labels without training. Their Microsoft Office-like format offers a familiarity that makes the software easy to use. NiceLabel software allows users to easily create compliant barcodes without coding, resulting in fewer label discrepancies. In addition, the platform provides a universal template that will work on all printers, with maximum performance on 4K label printers. 

    The economic argument comes into sharper focus when you consider how widely the labeling needs of different companies vary. Some companies need to produce large quantities of uniform labels for a single product, but others may offer a large selection of products. These manufacturers may need to produce many smaller batches of labels, of differing sizes and with varying formats. At that point, paying an outside printer may not be the most cost-effective solution. 

    However, printing those labels in-house with  NiceLabel lets a company create a large volume of labels over time with a variety of formats. In exchange for the initial investment in software, the introduction of in-house, on-demand printing streamlines a manufacturer's label design and production. Best of all, it provides just the sort of flexibility that a manufacturer needs to avoid having to store a large number of labels. 

    What Are the Four Pillars of NiceLabel?

    The NiceLabel system is based on four pillars including:

    1) Label Design: The system simplifies the task of the label design. with many built-in graphical design features that let users create labels in minutes with no specialized training or barcoding experience.  As Microsoft has said, "If you can use any Microsoft program, you can use any Microsoft program," and having an interface that looks and behaves like MS Office makes a world of difference. 

    2) Manual Printing: NiceLabel software centralizes label printing control. The system lets you instantly deploy a standardized label printing process across departments, factories, locations, contract manufacturers and suppliers, who manage your company's label printing centrally. Your operators can print from a dedicated, streamlined application that requires little training, with reduced IT costs, because there is no need to deploy printing applications for each workstation at every printing site. 

    3) Document Management: This software centralizes document management as well. The best way to think of it is as SharePoint for labeling. The NiceLabel system lets you design, review, approve and control labeling from a centralized database, without having to install software on individual workstations.

    4) Integrated Printing: Using NiceLabel lets you integrate label printing with your other business systems, such as SAP. This increases the accuracy and efficiency of label printing and also establishes a single source of truth for all your labeling data.

    NiceLabel In the Field

    A case in point of how a company has benefitted from the use of this package is the experience of our client company, FlowCo Product Solutions, an oil-industry equipment manufacturer in Texas. They are an example of how Loftware NiceLabel solutions can support and facilitate label production for a company that needs a very specific type of label.

    David Pietch at FlowCo purchased NiceLabel three years ago, choosing the Designer Pro package. His company manufactures a piece of equipment that attaches to oil pipes. Because this equipment must be certified on a quarterly basis, FlowCo needed to produce a small label that they could affix to the device. 

    The label needed a surface area that could accommodate a written serial number with a unique number set, featuring a matching bar code, that could also withstand the elements in East Texas! For durability, they chose a white polyester material and created the label via thermal transfer printing using a LabelTac printer.

    FlowCo also purchased a Service Maintenance Agreement (SMA)  for their NiceLabel software. In the three years since they purchased NiceLabel, they have only had to utilize it once. At a certain point, Windows did an update to their own platform which created a glitch in working with NiceLabel's algorithms. NiceLabel ended up providing a patch. Pietch added: "I was very impressed with the quality of the customer service I received from the help desk. I use Loftware NiceLabel design software on a daily basis and I find it absolutely reliable.  And the auditors like the label!"
