Scanning Items

Supported scanners require no special configuration or drivers and simply work like a keyboard. Therefore any box that accepts an item number can automatically be filled by scanning a label.

Creating Custom Label Designs and Sizes

Stock Tracker supports virtually any size of label provided that the printer supports Eltron Printer Language 2 (EPL2).

Label templates for item, electrical test, service, contact, operator login and sold labels can be programmed in EPL2 within Stock Tracker's Administration area.
