The Brother Pro Label Tool app helps speed and facilitate the labeling process by seamlessly connecting Wi-Fi enabled Brother P-touch industrial handheld and desktop printers with select smartphones and tablets.

Brother Mobile Solutions, Inc. (BMS), a provider of mobile, desktop and industrial printing, labeling and safety signage solutions, this week launched the new Brother Pro Label Tool, a mobile app that enables on-demand creation, editing and printing of labels for industrial applications, including datacom and IT infrastructure, electrical, facilities and more.

The app is being featured at the 2022 BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition (Jan. 31 - Feb. 3) this week in Orlando, Florida.

As noted by a BMS statement:

As datacom and communications technology professionals design, install and manage increasingly complex projects across sites, the need for faster, more efficient cable and electrical infrastructure identification becomes urgent. The Brother Pro Label Tool app helps speed and facilitate the labeling process by seamlessly connecting Wi-Fi enabled Brother P-touch industrial handheld and desktop printers with select smartphones and tablets empowering users to easily create, edit and print professional labels at any location.

The new app automatically connects to Brother’s cloud server, keeping the system up-to-date with the latest designs and templates. Users can also create new, custom label designs from their phone, adding elements like a company logo, QR codes, bar codes and more.

“Information IT and datacom professionals know that adaptability is key when it comes to keeping operations running smoothly,” said Craig Robinson, Director of Industrial Solutions at Brother. “The new Pro Label Tool app is designed to fit the dynamic, on-the-go needs of these professionals to make their jobs that much easier. No more lugging laptops to a job site or waiting on an updated label from the main office. The new app puts the power into your hands, allowing you to update existing or create new labels wherever you are, with only a few taps of your fingers.”

The free app is now available for Android tablets and smartphones and iOS smartphones, with features and functionality such as:

  • An easy-to-use interface, allowing professionals to choose, edit and print professional quality labels with just a few taps.
  • An easily accessible interface, which doesn’t require a computer or printer drivers.
  • A powerful Print Preview capability which helps ensure that users print the right label, even in a rush.
  • Connectivity with CSV databases.
  • A serialize function which reduces the need for duplicate typing when printing sequential labels.

The Brother Pro Label Tool app is compatible with a number of Wi-Fi enabled Brother printers, including the Brother PT series models PT-E550W, PT-E800W, PT-P750W, PT-P900W and PT-P950NW.
