EAN compliant Barcodes containing any of the EAN item properties (Item Code, Due Date, Production Date or Batch Number) defined in Mobileezy can be printed using a compatible barcode printer.  Printing is completed using a small Mobileezy application called Item Label Printer Application.  This application must be installed on the computer connected to the label printer to print barcode labels with item property information.

Barcodes containing item properties can be printed using the Mobileezy Item Label Printer Application.
