BarTender by Seagull Scientific is the world leading label design and print software.
KTEC GROUP is a long established distributor of BarTender
BarTender is upgradable from the lowest to highest versions in order......
Some of our printers like Primera models have a free BarTender called BarTender Lite.
This is because Primera and Seagull Scientific partner each other.
The BarTender Lite is actually quite powerful but is limited to running with that one printer.
If you only intend to use with say the Primera printer that’s fine.
So BarTender Lite has all the functions of adding pictures, text and barcodes as well as variable data like…
It can print an expiry date based on today’s date + n days forward.
It can be set to ‘prompt; the user using a form with a box to fill say for a batch number that will be printed on each label of that batch.
It can be set to add a unique count / serial number to each label.
You can upgrade now or later to BarTender Basic if you wanted to print to 2 or more printers and different type printers.
You can upgrade now or later to BarTender Professional if you wanted to have a common label template or two linked to a product list held in a spreadsheet or database. This has advantages when there are many product since copying a line down on the spreadsheet filled with text, ingredients, instructions, barcode number and more and editing for a new product is a lot faster that designing a new label each time.
Also it automates printing since you at print time you can search as well as can multiple select by product name and then enter a quantity of each to print and all the labels are sequenced off in moments. The professional version can be used to program RFID tags whilst printing when using RFID enabled label printers for example like our Primera RX500e for colour and Toshiba Tec EX4 for mono.
You can upgrade now or later to BarTender Automation. This is the networked multiuser version any number of PC users can design labels and send to the printer(s). It is licenced as 3, 5, 10, 20 and more printers that can be used simultaneously. Automation has a useful facility to allow simple connection to your own business system by watching a shared folder. When you send a simple instruction file (label name, quantity, any variable data to pass to the label) to the folder BarTender Automation can automatically wake up and print the labels commanded and adding the transferred variable information.
You can upgrade now or later to BarTender Enterprise. This is also a networked multiuser version any number of PC users can design labels and send to the printer(s). It is licenced as 3, 5, 10, 20 and more printers that can be used simultaneously. Enterprise has all the facilities before mentioned to allow simple connection to your own business systems. Enterprise has additional recording and logging of label print events needed for high level traceability say for food and pharmaceutical applications. Integration for SAP and ORACLE
