SATO Announces New All-In-One Tool


New management utility for seamless configuration of SATO printers system-wide

March 23, 2010 - SATO, a pioneer in the Automatic Identification and Data Collection (AIDC) industry and a leader in barcode printing, labeling, and EPC/RFID solutions, announced today its new SATO All-In-One printer management utility that enables users to seamlessly configure all of their SATO products across their system-wide infrastructure.

The SATO All-In-One tool is designed to provide a truly easy way to configure SATO printers based on the user’s requirements, and access local or networked SATO printers regardless of how the SATO printers are connected (parallel, serial, USB, Ethernet, or wireless). This one-stop configuration tool simply requires that any Windows PC be connected to the user’s network or any standalone Windows PC environment. It’s that simple.

Features of the SATO All-In-One include:

  • Management of SATO printers across networks regardless of location via Auto-Discover (or manual entry)
  • Access to downloads for printer-specific settings and firmware to a single SATO printer or system-wide broadcast to similar printer types
  • Ability to download custom fonts and graphics to printer memory which enhances throughput and optimizes print strings while reducing network traffic
  • Capability to diagnose and download custom commands and view printer responses to help debug and speed up custom software development for easier integration
  • Option to use the multi-lingual display to configure the SATO printers if English is not the user’s first language
  • Connection via standard interface types such as LAN, WLAN, USB, Serial, or Parallel
  • Visibility of all SATO printers from one central site regardless of the SATO printer model or location

“The benefits of the SATO All-In-One tool are obvious,” said Gary Krause, director of marketing at SATO America. “SATO developed the All-In-One utility to simplify printer configuration and deployment for our users and Valued Partners. We consolidated as many of the various software printer utilities as possible into one, integrated application tool that enables users to easily configure, including remote configuration, and control our printers from one location.”

Currently, the SATO All-In-One utility supports the following SATO printers:

  • CG2/CG4
