There are also industry standard products built in to get you started.

4. Place it into iCloud, Dropbox or E-mail it.

Change once, update everywhere
Need to update a product? Is a shelf life entered incorrectly? Was a product recorded as waste? Any changes to your stores labels are updated on every device automatically. You'll always have up to date knowledge of the status of your product. Tap the diagram to the right to see an example.
Each employee is assigned a PIN. This is used to log who last handled your product. Employees have a limited set of abilities. They can for instance print new product labels, re-print damaged product labels, print pre-defined static text labels and review, search and reprint existing labels. Each action is logged and visible by the owner.
Owners have a password to a store that allows for customization, product and employee maintenance, export of label logs and detailed auditing of activity. The password prevents employees from changing store settings or updating products. Below is a complete list of abilities.
