Producing barcode and RFID output from SAP® applications is our expertise. Zebra's specialized, rugged printers used for printing barcode and RFID labels on production lines, warehouses, shipping docks, and other industrial environments use different command languages than the office printers supported by legacy SAP software.
IT departments often depend on middleware or printer-specific SAPscript to enable the printer to recognize SAP output. However, innovative solutions from SAP and Zebra now provide a seamless environment for creating complex barcode and RFID labels for a wide range of business applications.
SAP simplified what formerly was a complex task for its customers by including Zebra's native barcode printing capability in its software, and including a true barcode printer driver with Smart Forms. The functionality is available for mySAP™ Business Suite and ECC6 through the Zebra device type for SAP.
Today, Zebra's innovative device types simplify the design process by enabling users to easily create barcodes, text, graphics, and other elements on a label. Zebra device types utilize and compliment the graphical design environment in SAP® Smart Forms.
All Zebra ZPLII based printers are compliant with the SAP® Printer Vendor Program.
