Intermec and SAP continue their 25-year-old partnership with the development of a new range of barcode and scanning equipment for various industrial environments.
Intermec and SAP have been collaborating on the definition and design of data collection systems required by SAP customers for barcode scanning, printing, mobile computing, and RFID applications.
Intermec’s new range of industrial, desktop and rugged mobile printers is specifically designed for printing bar code labels in manufacturing, warehouse, shipping and other industrial environments – applications where SAP business solutions are employed across the globe.
Designed to simplify integrated barcode labelling, Intermec printers are now certified through the SAP Printer Vendor program with Intermec device types for SAP Smart Forms and mySAP Business Suite. Intermec offers broad integrated printing support for SAP with all Intermec Direct Protocol (DP) based printers compliant with the SAP Printer Vendor Program.
Intermec supports integrated printing directly from legacy SAP applications. Intermec printers support printing from SAP R/3 using SAPScript formats uploaded to SAP. Intermec printers also support printing from SAP Auto-ID Infrastructure (AII) using XML data streams and formats stored on the printer.
Additionally, Intermec has partnered with leading SAP-certified label design and print management software providers with their software offering a host of benefits to customers including managing print jobs from SAP and sending them to the correct printer, print queuing, load management, print status and verification.
