We’re a barcoding pioneer — we’ve been generating the accurate, verified and validated barcodes that run the world’s businesses since the 1980s.
You can't afford barcoding errors.
Barcoding errors are expensive. Packages don’t get where they’re supposed to go. Supply chains aren’t traceable. Medical device labeling is out of compliance. Assets can’t be tracked. Bad barcodes can put your entire business at risk.
Long learning curve? You don't have time for that.
BarTender’s Windows interface means that the software is familiar from the first time you open it. It’s intuitive — easy to learn, and easy to train your expanding workforce.
We know the standards so you don't have to.
The barcode you need depends on industry sector, standards and symbologies. BarTender gives you the right barcode, every time. Simply enter your data into the BarTender label file via data integration or manual entry, and BarTender automatically calculates and generates accurate, readable, compliant barcodes, with more than 400 preformatted, ready-to-use barcodes components based on 95 different symbologies and more than a dozen barcode standards.
