We're proud to be an Authorised Australian distributor for BarTender labelling software since 2002. We carry stock, provide telephone support and training for customers if required. We know the advanced features of BarTender very well and can provide system integration and automation to streamline your label printing.
The World's Most Labelling Software has added Powerful Scale Support. BarTender can now directly accept data from weighing scales. Simply drag the scale control from the on-screen toolbox into a data entry form, specify the desired model, and start weighing and printing!
BarTender 2016 is one of the most significant releases in the product’s history, delivering new and improved capabilities that enhance your design and printing experience and make it easier than ever to manage and administer your operations. Here are just a few of the important features in BarTender 2016.
What’s new in BarTender 2016
New BarTender Integration Builder The new BarTender Integration Builder replaces the Commander companion application, enabling you to seamlessly integrate BarTender’s printing capabilities with virtually any enterprise business operation: Initiate printing automatically at trigger events, such as a web request or when an email arrives, a file is saved or a database record is added or modified. Connect to and communicate with clients via TCP/IP, UDP or HTTP. Perform basic file operations, such as move, rename, delete or copy. Integrate directly with ERP systems with built-in support for SAP, Oracle or IBM WebSphere (All Integration Builder features are available in the Enterprise Automation Edition. Integration Builder is also available in the Automation Edition without TCP, web services, XML/XSL transforms, and SAP/Oracle integration.)
Improved Data Entry Forms BarTender 2016 brings significant and powerful improvements to the creation and use of data entry forms. Now you can include data entry prompts, query prompts and record selectors on the same form, allowing a user to enter information, query the database and filter database records from the same location. Design multiple forms for a single template, place multiple prompts on the same form, use multiple forms in the same document, and leverage new data entry controls. In addition, new Record Picker controls allow you to display and choose which records to print directly from your form.
Easy Design: Simply "drag and drop" into forms. (Choose from 8 different scale displays)
Compatible: Predefined support for a variety of industry-standard scale models.
Tare Support: Use the value built into the scale or source it from a field in your database.
Versatile: Have either your scale or your PC determine when you have a "stable weight."
Print-time data entry forms now accept and display scale data.
Choose from a variety of scale displays (selected samples shown at right).
More Powerful Print-Time Data Entry Forms
It's now easier than ever to design powerful, user-friendly data entry forms when it is desirable to prompt users for certain data at print-time.
New Controls: Many more data entry objects, including radio buttons, check boxes, weighing scales, and pictures.
Drag and Drop: Create controls and link them to label data sources with simple mouse motions.
More Versatile: Now, optionally design forms without designing your labels first.
Automatic Text: Most form controls are now automatically created with text objects right next to them, which saves you that extra step.
Pop-Up Tips: Optionally pop up helpful hints when your users hover their cursor over selected form controls.
A new toolbox (similar to that from the label designer) makes it much easier to design
data entry forms.
"On-the-Fly" Object Automation
Programmatically change the position, size, color, and visibility of label objects right in the middle of a print job. For example, a text object for "Shipping Method" can automatically print in red when the value read from your database is "Over Night."
Human Readable Support for 2D Bar Codes
Automatic display of the human readable version of 2D bar code data is now supported.
More Powerful Integration
Expands upon BarTender's industry-leading features for connecting to peripherals and integrating with other software.
Serial Port Triggers: The Commander middleware application now adds integration support for a wide variety of serial devices, including weighing scales.
Bidirectional WebSphere Printing: Commander's IBM WebSphere support has been improved. It now supports HTTP posting, which allows for bidirectional print communications.
Commander Variables: Now store values into a single location and reference them from multiple Commander commands.
Font Toolbar Now Displays
What you see on the screen is what will be printed out - this ensures your labels will be accurate every time.
