BarTender Editions Summary

BarTender is available in three editions that address a wide range of features and user requirements: Enterprise, Professional and Basic.

Enterprise Edition

Provides the full range of BarTender's most powerful features. Especially designed to allow automation control by other programs. Contains our complete set of external data access capabilities.

Delivers Includes our most powerful software integration tools, such as ActiveX Automation, Enterprise messaging and Seagull's own Commander utility for cross-platform integration. Advanced data sourcing, including the industry's only SAP-certified direct IDoc interface. Intelligent network Install can set up a single copy of BarTender to run on unlimited workstations.

Licensing Allows unlimited number of local area network users, with licensing based on the maximum number of printers. (Multiple corporate sites require individual licenses.)

Professional Edition

All of the label design and most of the data access of the Enterprise Edition. Network compatible, but not optimized for control by other software.

Delivers All of the label design and printing features of the Enterprise Edition and most of the advanced data access capabilities, including ODBC. Fully network compatible. Control by other programs limited to a simple "command line" interface.

Leaves Out No ActiveX Automation or Commander integration. No SAP IDoc interface. No automatic e-mailing of logged events and errors. Although otherwise network-compatible, Install program will not setup a single BarTender as shareable from multiple workstations.

Licensing Licensing is based on the number of workstations running BarTender, regardless of whether or not they are on a common network. Supports an unlimited number of networked printers.

Basic Edition

For users who just need BarTender's essential label design and printing features.

Delivers The most important "core" label design features. Includes all text, graphics and linear bar code support. Supports simple, numeric serialization. Useful for keyboard-supplied label data only.

Leaves Out Does not offer integration, enterprise message handling, or external data access of any kind. No password protection, VB Script customization, text filtering, job logging, or 2D barcodes. No advanced or custom serialization.

Licensing Same as Professional.
