QuickLabel Systems, a business unit of Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), and NiceLabel announce the joint release of a native NiceLabel® printer driver for the Kiaro!® inkjet color label printer. The printer driver will allow Kiaro! printer users to enjoy the benefits of NiceLabel’s world-class labeling software technology. Printing labels with the NiceLabel Kiaro! printer driver is different than using NiceLabel through a standard Windows driver. It enables Kiaro! users to print labels more efficiently, taking advantage of NiceLabel’s print job optimization and variable information printing capabilities.
The NiceLabel printer driver for the Kiaro! is available free of charge with the purchase of any Kiaro! label printer, and can be downloaded at any time from the QuickLabel Systems website and also from the NiceLabel website.
In a related announcement, QuickLabel says it is now offering a service to create custom user interfaces for NiceLabel labeling software. Custom interfaces allow QuickLabel owners to quickly deploy a complete solution for in-house color label printing that is tailored specifically to their needs. For example, a Kiaro! owner concerned with maintaining label security might create a user interface that restricts the ability of a printer operator to edit the printable label file, thus minimizing human error and reducing training requirements. In another example, a Kiaro! owner might customize the look and feel of their software by using their own logo and brand imagery to adorn a basic interface.
“Today, companies require the flexibility to print color-rich labels, as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, enabling them to add value to their products and increase sales,” said Kevin Brisson, Product Manager of QuickLabel Systems. “NiceLabel’s capabilities and native QuickLabel drivers enable companies to leverage powerful design and automation tools to achieve a turn-key, color label printing system.”
“We’re excited to deepen our relationship with QuickLabel Systems through the release of a native Kiaro! printer driver for NiceLabel,” said Victor Hollo, Regional Account Manager, NiceLabel Americas. “Combining the high-speed color printer driver with NiceLabel’s next generation labeling technology ensures that Kiaro! users have unlimited design, integration, and production options for accomplishing labeling requirements for product packaging, GHS, and other color labeling initiatives."

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In his session at DevOps Summit, Otis Gospodnetić, co-author of Lucene in Action and founder...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...
