TEKLYNX International debuts CODESOFT 8 bar code labeling and integration software to the North American market. The new version introduces significant new capabilities to access and integrate enterprise-level data from a variety of sources, enhancements to the design suite and new printer management capabilities.

CODESOFT raises label printing integration and data connectivity to a higher level. Its new Database Manager facilitates data exchange with virtually any data source, including UNICODE, OLE DB, ODBC, native ASCII, as well as with applications such as Microsoft Access and Excel. CODESOFT can also query multiple databases in order to consolidate information from disparate data sources into a single label. Its Flexible Data Source Options enables values to be shared among labels, accumulated and stored to pre-defined lists. CODESOFT also works seamlessly with middleware software, such as TEKLYNX' SENTINEL S/5 Print Pack and Data Exchange Server.

CODESOFT builds on its extensive label design capabilities with new features. Its intuitive object-based label design approach enables designers to edit, reorder and add powerful objects to any linear, 2D or RFID bar code label design and incorporate Rich Text objects, graphics, pictures and backgrounds. CODESOFT also includes hundreds of compliance label templates and industrial graphics to ease the creation of compliance label designs and to make labels more functional and attractive.

Now, both versions of CODESOFT 8 use a software activation method which replaces the conventional hardware protection key (dongle) that was previously required to run the software. The activation process is simple, and requires only that users validate the license on their PC using the activation code they receive with the installation CD. With this new software activation process, users no longer have to worry about the inconvenience of hardware key related issues.

CODESOFT supports over 1000 thermal/thermal transfer printers and label applicators and dozens of RFID printers, including read/write printers, as well as any Windows-based printer. TEKLYNX' DSP (Driver Service Pack) free online service is the easiest method in the industry for updating printer drivers and tag formats to support emerging RFID printer technologies. TEKLYNX' DSP allows TEKLYNX resellers, system integrators and users to easily download and install the latest drivers and formats, a must as RFID hardware and standards continue to evolve. It is available at:

CODESOFT 8 is available in two versions: Pro - with design features, database connectivity and ActiveX controls; and Enterprise - which adds powerful software integration tools. CODESOFT 8 Pro and Enterprise are available immediately from authorized TEKLYNX resellers.
