The latest release of SATO Label Gallery™, LG3.2.2, successfully met the rigorous certification requirements, thus demonstrating compatibility with Microsoft’s latest operating systems standards.

SATO’s dedication to meeting the latest IT trends as they appear is also aligned with its commitment to constantly empower its partners with the tools to engage with their own customers. The Windows 7 compatibility will offer SATO business partners an extended platform to support advanced development for Windows-based applications and thus increase sales opportunities.
