CODESOFT Does it Better
Nobody likes to get constant error messages on their main server, especially when the errors disrupt critical business processes. But for Ken House, Global Shop Solutions Administrator for PIN, the daily annoyance led to a software change that not only solved the problem but improved workflow.
A custom manufacturer of fixtures and retail display systems, PIN had been using a different brand name software barcoding and labeling program to create and print labels for internal and external uses. Unfortunately, the program kept throwing error messages on the company’s Windows server. So much so that House had to remotely desktop into the server all day long to correct the messages and keep the program functioning.
As House contemplated the time and expense of upgrading his labeling software, he learned that Global Shop Solutions was transitioning to Codesoft for the system’s label printing features. House decided to move to CODESOFT instead, and after an hour of virtual training on the program, he was good to go.
“We print custom labels for inventory purposes and to meet the requirements of customers,” says House. “CODESOFT is easier to use than our old program. I can quickly modify or change the labels as needed. And they print right out of the Global Shop System. Best of all, I’m no longer wasting time fixing error messages all day long.”

Many Global Shop Solutions customers are currently using the software to reduce paper on the shop floor, and have found that it works well with GS Mobile for receiving inventory, doing bin-to-bin transfers and tracking finished goods.
