How To Print Labels.

Traceability and Tracking: How to Print Labels.

In BrewMan, you can print off two main types of labels.

Returnable Labels: These labels are for items that are in returnable containers such as casks. They show key information for your customers such as the Product Name, Tasting Notes and Allergy Information. These containers should have a permanent label, this will hold a QR code which will be used for scanning.

Non-Returnable Labels: These are for items that you do not need to be returned such as a case of bottles or a rented keg. They show product information as well as display QR codes. These codes can be scanned at the Distribution stage so that your items are tracked to the end customer for traceability purposes.

Printing Labels:

Go to Stock > Products and click into a Product. Then, click Print Labels in the bottom right of the screen.

The Package Type of the Product must be marked as Traceable. To check, go Administration > Settings > Products > Package Types. Here you will also set the label template used.

Enter the Batch Number, Best Before Date, Quantity and then click Print Labels.

*This will not alter Stock levels. You can use a Stock Adjustment if you want to increase stock.

Alternatively, you can print from an in-progress Packaging which will allow you to alter stock levels when you output from the Packaging. You will still be able to print Labels when the assembly is Complete.

Within a Packaging Assembly, click Print Labels. Then select the type of Label you wish to print, enter the Quantity, confirm the Best before Date and click Print Labels. You will be shown a PDF preview of your Labels, which you can then print. 

Premier Systems supports and recommends using the Godex RT700 thermo-transfer printer. However, you can use any printer that supports printing 100x100mm labels.
