Loftware put together an e-Book that summerizes benefits of label cloud that they’ve seen in the past few years. Download your copy of the Cloud Labeling e-book. Curious about the key insights from the EBI team?

  1. Cloud-to-Cloud Integration is becoming the standard
    • From what we are hearing from clients, many are seeing their other key systems (ERM/MRP/WMS) move to the cloud. This makes challenge #4 a big issue for them: ‘Integration and Scaling’. REST API makes cloud-to-cloud integration very easy. In many cases, it is now getting harder to build and support non-cloud-to-cloud integrations.
  2. Going to the cloud is the more secure option now
    • Challenge #1 ‘Software installation & user authorization’ stresses how this is easier with cloud. While our team agrees, they are seeing this is also becoming the most secure way to deploy it. Conventional wisdom used to be that you don’t want to expose your network to the Internet to as to protect yourself from hackers. However, Loftware uses Microsoft and Google security for authentication (much tighter than anything the client can do) and data stored in the Loftware cloud is protected to all accepted standards (e.g. like SOC 2). It would be very hard for a client’s local IT team to set up their network to meet all these requirements.
  3. Increased simplicity
    • If a companies use case allows it, it is possible to go completely serverless requiring less IT, and resource overhead. Basic label designs can be made entirely from the cloud without the need of any admin privileges to install software, as well as printers which are entirely hosted in the cloud environment. All this makes setup and deployment of a printing system very simple.
