Specialist Status

Label Software Designed for Fresh Produce
A Full Label System, Not Just Software
DataGuard 3 is a comprehensive label system for managing product data, designing labels and printing labels. Useful features include database driven variable data, print time prompts, automated shelf life dates.

Manage Products and Labels
DataGuard 3 is database driven and our structure has been honed over the years to allow you to easily manage your product data. Multiple growers, pack houses, product varieties, sizes, and label designs can all be managed from the database allowing you to control what can be printed and when. Individual products lines can be turned on or off so if certain products are seasonal you cannot accidentally print them at the wrong time of year.

Publish Securely to Multiple Sites
If you use other pack houses that need to print your labels we have tools that can co-ordinate labelling with secure file publishing. Data can be easily distributed to any number of external sites who can download and print your labels but crucially cannot make any alterations.

Consultation and Installation
Each system we build is designed specifically around your business needs so it works the way you want it to. Each system is initially built as a framework which is then installed and populated with your data.

Training and Support
Progressive ID provides full onsite training when installing the label system enabling you and your team to quickly and effectively manage the system. Telephone support, remote desktop support and numerous user guides are also available to help you troubleshoot any issues.
