The layout creation with PRISYM Design is optimized for label printing. What could be better than filling these layouts directly from your ERP system with data and start printing. PRISYM Connect is the middleware which implements this concept consistently and connects secure data sharing with flexible layout design.
When setting up PRISYM Connect there are placeholders defined according to your print data, which could be placed wherever required in the layout. These placeholders can be used in barcodes, text and images. You could use them any number of times in the layout and they where updated at print time with live data.
PRISYM Connect requires no programming for the connection to the ERP system, all necessary information will be provided in the form generation tool within SAP & Co. For this purpose, you only need to create a raw form with all the required print data (field name and contents).
The names of the placeholders in the label design must match with the transferred field names. When the form is printed later, PRISYM Connect will receive the print data, fill up matching placeholders with their content and print the label on the assigned printer.
For maximum flexibility on the print output device, you could use the PRISYM Design generic printer type during the layout design phase. Layouts that are designed for this generic printer can be used on all printing systems and can be directly addressed in PRISYM Connect.
PRISYM Connect receives the print data, which layout design to be used and the installed printer on which to print the labels and will also convert the layout design to match the selected printer for optimum print quality.
PRISYM Connect is a network service that simulates a printer to receive data from the ERP system. Through this technique, the data transmission is possible with minimal effort on the ERP site.
Only a small form must be created holding the print data plus layout name and printer. This form is then printed on a Generic/TextOnly network printer via IP address. PRISYM Connect is waiting for data under this IP address and generates the print output.
