Installation
Welcome!
Thank you for purchasing TEKLYNX CENTRAL CFR. This
installation guide contains information on how to install and
configure TEKLYNX CENTRAL CFR, in addition to using the
Command Center to interact with CODESOFT, LABEL
ARCHIVE, SENTINEL, and the Printing Interface.
About TEKLYNX CENTRAL CFR
TEKLYNX CENTRAL CFR manages enterprise labeling users,
licenses, and installation within one interface. The Command
Center coordinates TEKLYNX’ proven label design, printing,
security, and tracing applications to simplify administration.
TEKLYNX CENTRAL CFR offers the following features:
Label Design Security and Traceability – You can create all
of your label templates in the label designer and secure them in
the label database. All modifications and print requests are
tracked in the database to provide an audit trail of print and label
history.
e
Browser-Based Printing Interface – The browser-based
printing interface uses a unique data input model that allows
you to eliminate unnecessary user steps by limiting access to
labels at the work order, workstation, and printer level. In
addition, the configurable interface allows you to use
terminology specific to your business environment, which
reduces training time for new users.
Label Printing – Print requests that are sent from a host system
or the browser-based user interface are processed and sent to
networked printers.
