New updates to Edikio Price Tag Software

Improved features include the ability to print more than one image per tag, add additional price fields & use multiple currencies

Evolis edikio software update

The Evolis range of Edikio Price Tag Printers are the modern and professional way to produce price tags for display with your food and drink products.

The latest software updates just released from Edikio now allow you to:

  1. Print more than one image or price on your tags

Until now, it’s only been possible to use one key image on your price tags. Now you can use further images to communicate necessary information to your consumers with the software’s multiple image management.

  1. Print two price fields on each tag

You can now choose two ways to display prices, giving you more flexibility on how you price-up your product. Choose from additional fields such as price per unit, kilogram or sale price.

  1. Manage your price lists across multiple locations

If you have shops in multiple locations, or have teams of people doing your outside catering, you need everyone to have access to the same price list and tag design.

You can now export your price list and layouts for each individual to import into their own systems.

  1. Print dual-sided tags better with the Edikio Access or Flex

Double-sided tags allow you to have one side displaying the necessary consumer information, and the reverse to display the selling information that your staff need.

The software walks you through how to flip cards correctly so that there’s no waste when you print them manually.

  1. Reorganise your categories when your needs change

You can now move items between categories whenever you want, so you can keep your product list organised.

  1. No internet? No problem

You can now activate your Edikio software license when our computer’s offline. Ideal if you’re on an outside catering shoot in the middle of nowhere for example.

  1. More price presets and currencies available in the design view

And for those of you who have suffered the agony of accidentally deleting your desired layout, there’s now the ability to ‘undo/redo’ your latest action.

How to update your software

Your software won’t automatically alert you to download the latest version, so to benefit from the latest features you’ll need to download the updates yourself.

Go to the Help menu and select ‘Check for software updates’.

This will then walk you through the steps to download the latest version.

The professional way to meet your food labelling responsibilities

Price Tags labelling Solution

If you sell or provide food, you’ll know about your responsibilities when it comes to food labelling.

From December 2014, EU FIC regulations stipulate that you must provide allergen ingredients information in a clear and consistent way, so that consumers can make safer food choices.

These regulations now also apply to ‘loose foods’ such as those found in delis, farm shops, buffet tables and restaurant food bars.

So how do you label yours? Edikio Access food label printer

Black marker pen on a white card that’s then wiped off? Pieces of paper? Hidden on list in a book behind the counter?

One of the most professional and easiest way to create price tags for your food is by using a Price Tag Printer like the Evolis Edikio Access (entry-level) or Duplex (for double-sided printing).

A Price Tag Printer prints professional, attractive price tags for display with your food and drink products. The cards are easy to clean, resistant to cold and moisture and meet the requirements of the food processing industry.

Clearly label the allergens Allergen labels

As well as giving a great brand image, they also allow you to clearly label the product, ingredients and any allergen ingredients easily on the front of the card. Simply select the required icons from the software, and print them on the card.

The problems with doing it ‘the old way’

Paper tickets on spikes can look unhygienic next to loose food, even when they’re in a plastic container – not to mention unprofessional.

Using pen on plastic card is not great with respect to food contact regulations, and you’re relying on the person’s handwriting being legible (and there being no spelling mistakes).

If you just have a list for the staff to refer to behind the counter, you’re not giving consumers the ability to safely make the right choice. You’re also relying on them asking for the information, which can result in a lost sale.

None of these convey a good brand image either, or inspire consumer confidence.

Food Price Tags BakeryBut the main issue is that they are all open to human error. If one of your staff gets it wrong for whatever reason, the results could be catastrophic.

By printing your tags through a price tag printer, you remove that risk. You import product information onto your cards straight from your MS Excel file (products, prices etc) giving you control over the process.

A reminder of the 14 allergens

The following should be clearly labelled:

  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Fish
  • Crustaceans (for example crab, lobster, crayfish, shrimp, prawn)
  • Molluscs (for example mussels, oysters, squid)
  • Peanuts
  • Tree Nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, pecans, brazils, pistachios, macadamia or Queensland nuts)
  • Sesame seeds
  • Cereals containing gluten (wheat, rye, barley, oats)
  • Soya
  • Celery and celeriac
  • Mustard
  • Lupins
  • Sulphur dioxide and sulphites (at concentrations of more than ten parts per million).

Printing information-rich price tags doesn’t just make it easier for your customers and convey a more professional image, they also ensure your business is meeting its regulatory requirements.
