Physical Layer fiber Software Tools?

I am hoping someone could help me out with some suggestions for any
software that is available, for individuals that are doing physical layer
wiring in a data center?

The idea is the technician is performing the fiber runs from say RACK 111
router AAA port 1/1/1 to RACK 222 router BBB port 1/1/1

The fiber is connected to a LIU in the TOP of the rack, and then will
require various cross connects to get to the other rack. If the various
racks and LIU's are pre-populated into the software, and then a standard
for the fiber labels is also installed ahead of time into the software

The technician has a tablet or laptop to enter the data, and then it will
print out a cable label based on the info entered into the tool. The
back-end data base is updated for each fiber so the complete path is known.
This way its a one step process.

Maybe my description of this is readily available or have other companies
developed a custom software tool to achieve this?

Appreciate any feedback.
