Overview of Label Printing

Introduction

You can print various types of labels from Provet Cloud, including medicine, food and supply labels, client and patient labels, and laboratory and laboratory sample labels. Learn more about different types of labels and how to print them.

PDF label printing is the recommended label printing method. In addition, you can use one-click printing (direct printing) to make printing quicker and easier. Provet Cloud provides some presets and recommended configurations for PDF label printing and one-click printing.

PDF Label Printing

PDF label printing does not require any special integration software or devices. You only need a compatible label printing device that can connect to your computer. The printer can also be connected as a network printer.

The PDF file format is reproducible by a large variety of physical printers in various operating system environments. All modern printers and specific label printers that can print PDF files are compatible with Provet Cloud PDF label printing. Google Chrome is the recommended browser for PDF label printing.

One-Click Printing

Optionally, you can also set up one-click printing for PDF labels. One-click printing speeds up printing by allowing users to skip the browser and operating system printing dialogues so that the label can be printed with fewer steps.

One-click printing requires an additional Provet Cloud ProPrint helper application which must be installed on every workstation you want to use one-click printing on. If one-click printing fails, or is not installed on the workstation, Provet Cloud uses browser-based PDF printing instead.
