Brady and Siemon partner to release LabelMark™ 5.4 Software expansion pack with time-saving datacomm wizard
Label design software offers label templates for Siemon hardware manufacturing and models
Milwaukee, WI – Brady has recently collaborated with Siemon, an industry leader in manufacturing and innovation of network cabling solutions, to release the latest version of LabelMark™ Label Design Software. LabelMark 5.4 Software features several updates for electrical, lab and voice/data applications. The most noteworthy feature is a time-saving datacomm wizard that offers pre-made label templates based on Siemon's most common network connectivity.
"Before, network technicians were using Microsoft Word and Excel to set up page sizes and label formats in order to label their network hardware," said Marlon Davis, Brady's software product manager. "The process was oftentimes tedious and very time-consuming, because they'd need to make numerous adjustments and format modifications before they could even add the data to the labels to start printing," said Davis.
With the new datacomm wizard in LabelMark™ 5.4 Software, technicians can simply select Siemon as their network hardware manufacturer and hardware model, and the appropriate label template will be automatically generated.
After selecting their label template, users are guided to apply labeling legend data and save the cable markers and label files they've created for patch panels, jacks, and other hardware. It allows technicians to save a complete job, which can be used for quick label kitting at future on-site cable drops and rack installations.
"Combining Brady's LabelMark Software and Siemon's hardware models provides a time-saving cable and networking labeling solution for users around the globe," says Bob Carlson, vice president of global marketing for Siemon.
