TEKLYNX International, the world’s leading barcode and RFID labeling software developer and solutions provider, today reported an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system integration with TEKLYNX’ CODESOFT and SENTINEL enterprise barcode labeling software solutions drove significant labeling improvements for the lighting division of long-time customer LSI Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: LYTS). Most notably, the ERP and labeling systems integration positioned the LSI Lighting Division to reduce ongoing file maintenance by 80%, eliminate 6,000 static label files and reduce label process time from days to minutes.
The LSI Lighting Division sought to make labeling operations more efficient for its growing product line fueled by increasing demand for Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting. The division had successfully leveraged TEKLYNX’ barcode labeling solution LABEL MATRIX for years, but needed an enterprise-level labeling solution that could both support product growth and integrate with its existing ERP system to drive additional efficiencies.
“We wanted to eliminate the manual maintenance of a growing number of static label files,” states Tom Cantrell, Manager of Product and Manufacturing Support at LSI Industries, Inc. “Our implementation of CODESOFT and SENTINEL allowed us to convert static files to database-driven templates that are linked to our ERP system. This has reduced file maintenance, improved processing speed and allowed us to standardize our process in multiple areas.”
- Integration with existing ERP system eliminated 6,000 static label files, reducing ongoing label file maintenance by 80% and process time from days to minutes.
- Increased label printing speed by 10% by replacing a labor-intensive custom interface environment with a browser-based system.
- Upgraded solution supports company’s multi-user, multi-facility environment and provides bandwidth to support future growth, including the ability to print labels to a virtually unlimited number of printers.
“One of TEKLYNX’ greatest assets is our ability to work in close partnership with our customers,” states Doug Niemeyer, TEKLYNX General Manager. “LSI’s labeling improvements show that we’re not simply providing software, we’re partnering with companies to guarantee our integrated supply chain solutions make them work better.”
