GSM Printer & Label Systems, the printer and labelling systems arm of the GSM group, are launching OdetteMaster V6 at the East Midlands Manufacturing Exhibition in Donnington on 14 September 2005.
Commenting on the OdetteMaster V6, Martin Cameron, General Manager of GSM Printer & Label Systems, said, "GSM have worked closely with first tier suppliers in the automotive sector to develop the functionality of the new software, specifically concentrating on both the ease of installation and 'invisibility' of the software.
Version six represents the next development in the proven OdetteMaster product line and boasts significant enhancements. You can create product labels, box end labels, build cards and print to different printers simultaneously. In addition, weights and quantities are calculated automatically so there is no chance of shipping errors.
We have given the new software an XP look and feel. With the integration of the GSM EDI Mapper software, users can now import EDI information directly from their customers straight to the label package. Traditionally two systems sitting side by side would be needed to achieve this functionality."
OdetteMaster version 6 can also store Odette label templates for all the automotive manufacturers, and operation could not be easier. For manual configuration all the operator needs to do is select the correct template. In many cases the systems will be automated with the template being selected automatically from the customer's EDI message. Whether you use the software in manual or automated configuration the EDI translation scripts avoid the need for consultation fees when a new EDI template is taken on or if a customer alters their message construction.
Underlining the reliability of the OdetteMaster software Peter Brampton, IT Manager of BTR Metzeler, commented "Our Odette system has been in use for over 2 years now, with continued updates to maintain suitability for our changing business, we are still reaping the benefits that this advanced system offers."
Odettemaster software is available as a boxed, stand alone package or alternatively GSM will be happy to bundle it into a package with a number of different Thermal transfer and Laser printers to choose from.
