SENTINEL Print Pack S/4 is an event driven, high performance print management tool designed to process enterprise wide label and form printing data, regardless of format. It enables host applications to print to any designated printer anywhere in the enterprise.

The NEW S/4 version adds significant process management features that fully leverage the Internet (such as real-time notifications via email) while continuing to support legacy systems.

SENTINEL enables data from a host system to be merged with CODESOFT or LABELVIEW label designs without requiring complex and costly modifications to the host application. The SENTINEL Print Pack S/4 "sentinel watch" approach supports any enterprise system, including host applications from SAP, Baan, JD Edwards, Oracle, PeopleSoft and others.

Using either the CODESOFT or LABELVIEW print engine, SENTINEL Print Pack S/4 currently supports over 1,000 printer device types in addition to Windows drivers for supporting Laser, Dot Matrix and other office type printers. Each of the printer drivers was developed in close collaboration with the printer manufacturers to take advantage of today's thermal transfer printer technologies as well as emerging technologies, such as RFID.

How It Works:

  1. An ERP application (ex. SAP, Baan, JD Edwards, Oracle Applications, Peoplesoft, etc.) sends data to SENTINEL.

    Input methods can be:
    • File Capture (monitoring a directory)
    • TCP/IP Port Listening
    • Print Capture (monitoring a print spool)
    • Data collection software connection

  2. Data is processed and mapped to a label design in CODESOFT.

  3. The label is then printed to any Windows or thermal printer.

  4. Reporting offers several options:
    • Email (reports events in real-time)
    • Log File (logs events for traceability)
    • TCP/IP (receive confirmation of processed data)

  5. Data output can be archived or presented to another "Sentinel" or "watch" directory.
