Logiwa manages Scale integration with Print-Node.
Important: You have to buy the "Print Node" API for using this feature.
You need to choose one of the Single Account packages, based on your scale count. You need to have different client accounts for each scale. For example, if you have 3 scales on your packing stations, you may consider using the Essential package that has three clients included already.
