SATO Solution in Support of SAPscript

SAP users design barcode labels using an intuitive label design software package such as NiceLabel Designer Pro. They can define all fields that need to be filled in later by variable data from SAP applications. It automatically generates the SAPscript for SATO printers by exporting the ITF SAPscript file. The barcode labels can then be printed directly from the SAP system without additional processing.
