NiceLabel Unveils New ABAP Package that Supports RFID

NiceLabel, a global developer of label design software and label-management systems, has announced the launch of version 2 of its ABAP package, which supports RFID technology. This new version supports both SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA, allowing organizations to digitize their labeling quality-assurance process and reduce both labeling errors and shipping delays. NiceLabel's label-management system is configured so that businesses can make label changes faster and reduce the burden on IT.

Included with the NiceLabel Label Management System is an ABAP package that allows for rapid system deployment and configuration. Within the SAP environment, the company explains, this can result in reduced development costs, as businesses need not configure all their own code in order to allow print operators and label approvers to view and authorize labels.

"Many organizations are striving to modernize their ERP systems from SAP ECC to SAP S4/HANA as they edge toward the cloud," said Ken Moir, NiceLabel's VP of marketing, in a prepared statement. "We have the tightest integration and 'know-how' for both versions. Our ABAP package means that businesses don't have to write their own code to be able to preview labels within SAP. This helps to eliminate many of the inefficiencies arising from relying on IT-developed SAPscript, SmartForms or Adobe Forms."

Moir added: "It's not uncommon for label changes to take up to three weeks for some businesses. Our latest ABAP package integrates with both SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA. It can be transported into the SAP system within seconds and can streamline the SAP printing process in a matter of hours, giving businesses a quicker and more agile label production process."

NiceLabel offers support for a range of RF tag data-encoding options, including both HF tags (TagIt, iCode and ISO) and UHF tags (Class 0, Class 1 and Class 1 Gen 2). Supported standards include EPC Gen 2; Philips: ICode , ICcode EPC, ICode UID and ISO 15693; Texas Instruments: Tag-it and ISO 15693; Infineon: ISO15693 and My-d; Matrics: EPC Class 0 (64/96/128/256 bit) and Class 0+; Alien Technology: EPC Class 1 (64/96 bit); Inside Tech: Pico Tag and others; NXP Semiconductors: U-Code (G2, G2XL, and G2XM); Rafsec: Omni (313, 342, and 478); and Impinj: Propeller.

NiceLabel supports the encoding of NDEF messages (Near Field Communication) into HF RFID tags and special NFC tags: NTAG203, NTAG210, NTAG212, NTAG213, NTAG215, NTAG216, Mifare Ultralight, Mifare Ultralight C and my-d move NFC.
