QuickPrint

QuickPrint, designed by BCC Distribution, is a pre-configured and user-friendly SAP-integrated transactional barcode label printing software system. QuickPrint integrates directly with SAP S/4HANA or SAP ECC 6.0 software systems, complying with Inventory and Warehouse Management standards. QuickPrint functionalities include printing both 1D (linear barcode) and 2D (2-Dimensional- QR code, Data Matrix, etc.) barcode labels to meet various barcode scanning business requirements. QuickPrint also supports printing documents, forms, and encoding of RFID tags. With the barcode labels and tags, QuickPrint can quickly and easily generate, print, and encode necessary barcode label data, such as: material or part numbers, batch or LOT data, expiration dates, serial numbers, handling units, storage units, label pallet numbers, and other unique information required to identify inventory materials or comply with a customer/compliance requirement.

TranASAP

BCC Distribution’s TranASAP is an SAP-certified, pre-configured software product ideal for inventory control process improvement. TranASAP mobilizes and automates SAP software transactions, and includes mobile RF scanning, data collection and validation, as well as integrated barcode label printing. Our team at BCC Distribution has optimized SAP software transactions for mobile RF scanning and barcode label printing, and natively integrated with SAP ECC 6.0 and SAP S/4HANA software to help improve any warehouse’s best practices through barcode automation.

TranASAP streamlines inventory management and barcode label scanning, replacing error-prone and time-consuming manual pen and paper data collection. TranASAP mobile RF scanning ensures that the data collected is accurate and validated with the SAP software in real-time.

TranASAP works with certified mobile RF scanners, rugged tablets, vehicle-mounted terminals, and wearable devices. The mobilized SAP capability enables easy barcode label scanning and printing when paired with our QuickPrint label printing solution. BCC Distribution’s TranASAP and QuickPrint software has over 300 pre-configured transactions that enable rapid barcode automation deployment. TranASAP optimizes SAP-integrated software’s Inventory Management (IM), Warehouse Management (WM), Extended Warehouse Management (EWM), and Production modules. When TranASAP is paired with QuickPrint, the SAP-integrated system facilitates quick label changes, accurate label scanning, and agnostic printing capabilities. BCC Distribution developed TranASAP and QuickPrint to be simple yet effective solutions for barcode scanning and barcode label printing to meet the workflow requirements of high-volume and high-value warehouses.

Barcode Label Printing Integration for Any Application.

BarTender

BCC Distribution also offers BarTender label design and printing software, which simplifies the design, automates printing, and enables a wide range of quality control capabilities for the management of labels, barcodes, documents, forms, RFID tags, plastic cards, and more. Hundreds of thousands of businesses rely on BarTender labeling software to improve printing performance, rapid label design changes, safety, security, efficiency, and compliance with barcode label and RFID tag printing regarding GS1, UDI, and PTI.

  • Powerful Flexible Design Tools
  • 200+ Predefined Commonly Used Label Templates
  • Dynamic Label Printing and Management
  • Increase Label QA and Productivity with Drag-and-Drop Workflow Designer
  • Diverse Database Connection and Support
  • 20+ Native Connections Including XML, JSON, Excel, SQL, SAP ERP, and More

BarTender printer drivers (by Seagull Scientific) make it easy to print labels, cards, and more from any true Windows program. BarTender has been creating printer drivers for more than 20 years. Today, these printer drivers are so trusted that many printer manufacturers provide them in the box with their printers. When used with BarTender software for label, barcode, RFID and card printing, the printer drivers can take advantage of special high-speed printing functions that standard Windows and SAP-embedded printers can’t use.

BarTender, an SAP-certified label design and printing software toolset, is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) label program that accelerates the speed of label design and improves the efficiency of labeling goods throughout the supply chain because designing labels and printing is fast, easy, and accurate. BarTender simplifies the design and configuration of barcodes, text, graphics, logos, and other images to be printed on barcode labels and other tags. Labels and tags can be designed for barcode scanning and human readable as well, allowing teams to identify and handle hazardous materials safely via visual graphics, images, and readable text that represents the handled product. Clear labels and accurate data encoding maximize data accessibility, which allows teams to efficiently track goods to their point of origin and place of manufacturing. BarTender increases real-time inventory accuracy when paired with our TranASAP and QuickPrint barcode scanning solutions at BCC Distribution.

Barcode Printing with SAP Smart Forms & SAPscript

For specific label printing applications, Smart Forms may be the ideal SAP-integrated label printing approach. Smart Forms can be used to create and maintain forms (label or document) for simple and direct printing in SAP systems where formats, data, and labeling requirements do not change. Smart Forms offers the ability to create and maintain barcode label forms, adapting forms using existing printer (i.e. ZPL) and/or SAP (ABAP) programming expertise with the graphical user interface, and integrating input elements into an HTML output enabling you to potentially use a Smart Form in internet-based applications.

It’s important to note that while SAP Smart Forms replaced SAPscript, SAPscript forms are still supported by SAP, and can potentially be used in Smart Forms. BCC Distribution helps our customers determine the right path for SAP-integrated printing, to include migration of SAPscript forms to Smart Forms, Smart Forms used with BarTender label design, or to QuickPrint leveraging the power and agnostic printing capabilities of BarTender.
