Retail Technologies, Inc. - Software
DESIGN-R-LABELS is software that allows you to design and print a wide variety of signs and labels from small HBA shelf tags to window banners. You have the ability to print and reprint your data as many times as necessary. You can import data from your scanning system or use DESIGN-R-LABEL's database capabilities to store a custom database of sign data with extra-long descriptions, image paths and flag fields. In the template designing module, you can design your sign and labels with logic to reduce the overall amount of designs needed.
DESIGN-R-LABELS is typically used in two ways. An independent grocery store would use DESIGN-R-LABELS to create and print all of their signs and labels. Whereas, in a corporate chain-store environment, the head office creates the sign and shelf tags and the stores print them using only the print engine module (PrintLab).
Printlab Suite is typically used to print signs and shelf tags at the store level. Just like PrintLab, it allows you to use desktop short cuts or bat files for one-click printing of any shelf tags and sale signs that you designed in DESIGN-R-LABELS. You have the ability to sort sign data, designate sign stock to print from any tray of any printer that you have installed on that computer or on the network, and set up print notifications for your batch.
Printlab Suite, however, has the ability to store data to complement printing of sign and label batches. PrintLab Suite includes Flashprint, which allows you to print quick sale signs or shelf tags on an ad-hoc basis using stored descriptive data.

DESIGN-R-LABELS store edition
Independent stores and dealers are the typical users of DESIGN-R-LABELS store edition. Like Printlab Suite, you can import and store data to complement while printing your sign and label batches. You can use desktop shortcuts or bat files to print out item batches automatically. You have the ability to print ad hoc signs and labels using Flashprint. However, you can also design and modify any sign or label from small HBA tags to window banners. DESIGN-R-LABELS store edition has the added functionality of being able to design or modify existing signs and labels.
FlashPrint is used almost exclusively at the store level in conjunction with DESIGN-R-LABELS and Printlab Suite. FlashPrint gives you the convenience of being able to print any sign or label that exists in DESIGN-R-LABELS without having to load an entire label batch for printing. The software has the ability to access the DESIGN-R-LABELS stored item database. This gives you the added convenience of being able to modify and improve existing descriptions or add missing information so you can print out more professional looking signs and labels.
N-Aisle is typically used at the store level. The N-Aisle Printing module allows you to print out permanent shelf tags as you walk along the aisle. N-Aisle takes advantage of your existing in-store wireless network. As you walk along the aisle, and scan products with a handheld device, the wireless signal sends the UPC information back to the computer where the N-Aisle software is located. The N-Aisle software complements the information sent from the handheld with all pertinent data from the N-Aisle database (such as description, size, and price), which allows you to print a complete and permanent shelf tag.
Large Format Sign and Banner Printing Option
Communicate with customers on a grand scale with Large Format Signs created and printed with the Large Format Printing option of RTI softare products. Large-Format, high-impact color signs can focus the attention of the customer on the specific products before they even set foot in the store. Window signs promote your store’s message from the parking lot to the street. Large Format signs are not limited to windows signs, but include end-cap, over-the-aisle, and departmental signs.
RTI AutoStart is a utility that runs in the system tray and monitors a folder for a file or monitors a single file to be updated or created. Upon either of these two events, RTI AutoStart will launch a given piece of software with any supplied command line parameters. After processing the command, RTI AutoStart will delete the new/updated file that triggered the event. RTI AutoStart has the ability to run pre-process and post-process utilities (scripts, batch files, executibles, etc.).
RTI created this utility initially to allow users of PrintLab 32 to use PrintLab for printing in the aisle.
