The Loftware Print Server (LPS) is an enterprise solution for corporations that have significant product marking requirements for both barcode and RFID smart labels. It is designed to act as a middleware component between medium to large-scale business systems and marking devices such as barcode and RFID label printers.
The Loftware Print Server forms the basis of Loftware's 'Server-Centric' approach to marking systems, whereby all product marking in an area, building, or enterprise is controlled from a centralized server on the network. The Loftware Print Server's highly scalable and fault tolerant system architecture is designed to handle thousands of requests targeted to hundreds of printers simultaneously.
The Loftware Print Server can print labels and RFID smart tags generated by any of your business-critical applications such ERP/MRP and/or WMS systems. The Loftware Print Server includes interfaces that allow it to work with applications that are hosted on diverse operating systems including UNIX (e.g., Sun Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, Linux, etc.), the Microsoft Windows Server System line of business server products, and many more. These host applications offload barcode label and RFID tagging to the Loftware Print Server which translates the request into device specific code before sending it to the printers. Application programmers no longer have to write and maintain device specific code every time a labeling requirement changes.
