“We use bartender for all of our label printing needs. We use drop files to trigger.”

OverallThey play really well with the zebra printers, which a lot of other software doesn't (like SSRS reports). Also the integration builder is a really powerful way to automate a lot of things. It's a life saver. And the ease of creating labels is really nice. Don't forget you can print to a regular printer too. You can make some very good paper reports that are much easier to maintain than SSRS reports.
ProsThe user interface is really well defined for people that don't code. Designing label templates is as easy as power point. Setting up the fields that need to read the data is easy to set up to. There is a very short learning curve with the product.
ConsWe have it set up to run waiting for drop files (with the integration builder). Because we aren't using the front end for normal use, end users can't get error messages. If would be nice if it had a better monitoring system to know when something goes wrong. It's not that often that it does, but when it does it can cause some problems for our business.

“Used for printing serialization labels by integration functionality with SQL Database ”

OverallFast and easy creation of labels. Ability to track rev changes on labels.
ProsThe diverse functionality of creating and printing labels. Creating labels is fast and easy. Integrations is a great tool and are very powerful when wanting an action repeated easily. Librarian is a great feature to ensure label revs are tracked and managed properly.
ConsThe cost is based per printer. We have multiple printers for the sake of not having to travel to retrieve your label, however, for the price tag it's not worth activating a printer that only gets used once a week. The integrations is very finicky and occasionally needs to be restarted for no reason at all. The printer default settings do not save and revert back to original so I manually have to change the print speed and darkness on each label.

“BarTender 2016 is Great for Any Business Big or Small”

OverallBarTender 2016 by Seagull Scientific is really a great label or barcode software for any business no matter the size! It is sophisticated and professional yet very easy to use, especially for someone like me who was trying to get their small business off the ground. The software itself is a little pricey for small businesses, but you are definitely paying for the quality of the product. The process of creating labels and barcodes is very smooth and easy to customize. You can add symbols, images, text, and even your logo which was fantastic. Seagull doesn't have a chat program, but their website has many great resources including training videos, webinars, and other guides to ensure that you use their product to its full potential. Here is a link to those resources: http://www.seagullscientific.com/support/bartender-training-videos/ They also make it really easy to download and update your printer drivers which tends to be a pain with other products. I highly recommend Seagull Scientific's BarTender 2016. You can try a 30 day free trial here: http://www.seagullscientific.com/label-software/barcode-label-design-and-printing/
ProsSophisticated, professional, yet easy to use Great resources for software training as well as information for updating your drivers Good for any size business
ConsA little bit on the pricey side No access to live chat support

“Bad”

OverallI get a paycheck for working with it twice a month
ProsI didn't pay for the software or the license. The software download is free, and has a 30 day free trial.
ConsVery disappointed in the new 2016 version. The new 2016 version crashes anytime I attempt to update a database connection from one of our old XML source that worked seamlessly in 10.4. (They will still work so long as you don't touch them). Bartender then restarts and attempts to recover the bad information (which will in turn crash bartender.) Was this product actually run by QA before release? I suspect there was nothing but plug and play sceanrios tested. Very little insight into customer service. Have a lot of difficulty getting answers from the tech team. This is what happens when a company cuts back on 'costs' by elimiating quality assurance and customer support. SOme of the new 'features' have absolutely destroyed Database/setup connections. After upgrading from 10.4, all tables from our XML payloads now crash bartender when you try to do ANYTHING with them (Great coding guys). As a result, the text file source has become quite useless unless you are using a csv. Field Alias for Named database connections don't store with the named connection which makes it pointless as you will need to re-alias these things every time you change datasource. This defeats the purpose of naming/reusing a datasource if you have to re-alias all fields everytime you use it. Again, I am not convinced that this was even tested before release. Perhaps I missed something about Alpha in the whitepapers...

Hi Jonathan, I apologize for the issues you're experiencing. They are as unacceptable to all of us as here they are to you. We've brought this to the attention of BarTender's VP of Technical Services, and he's reviewing your support tickets to see how we can help. I'd also like to offer reassurance that we haven't had any reductions to our QA or technical support teams. We recognize how important these functions are, and are, in fact, investing in their growth. I understand Capterra is providing my contact information to you. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. I'd like to know how this turns out.

“Easy-to-learn and offers diverse options for barcoding including serialization. ”

Pros It's so easy to get around the user interface, even for people who have no experience working with code. There's not much of a learning curve to this application. Anyone can create labels with great ease and diversity. The integration builder provides an avenue for automation and makes it easy to select an action we want duplicated. The program also works very well with zebra printers. It also has a the serialization feature which is pretty cool. Their website's got a ton information that help you maximize the program like webinars,training videos, and other guides
ConsThe only downside I can think of is that they don't have a live chat feature on their website, which would really help if you're already on there and looking for specific information.

ProsGreat and easy way to design an print barcodes, whether that be on a label or a hangtag, BarTender does the job! Easy step by step process, literally walks you through printing the type of Barcode you need.

OverallOne solution for all site printers and standardization of labels across the company.
ProsVery easy to use, wizard setups and menu-driven changes, very little coding but it is available, integration with other systems
ConsStill trying to figure out how to use a label with multiple printers and not have to save the label twice, but otherwise great software.

“A good well rounded software for our label printing needs here”

Overallmuch better system for designing and printing labels than we previously had! Faster and easier to train persons in....
ProsVery easy to use, simple drag and drop and very easy to modify text boxes, etc. Love how they offer the free trial to test before buying. Also, it is compatible with just about every printer on the planet!
ConsKinda hard to come up with Cons for this software apart from the fact that they don't offer live chat, as well as pricing, hard to determine what the cost is - the website doesn't have prices on it, and when it comes down to it this is a fairly pricey software, then again - you get what you pay for, go figure :)

“Used for all kinds of labels within our organisation”

Prosease of use. Particularly like the serialisation feature for barcoding labels. It has the options to use many different types of barcode
ConsAlthough it still works without, it has to link up to the internet for licence checking. This can slow down the opening of the application.

“It's Just OK”

ProsCan create a full product label complete with UPC code Has the option of only being able to change the lot code and best before date (for product labels)
ConsHard to edit texts as it often takes you to a separate window Text formatting is strange, size of text increases as you change the text box so it's difficult to control the text size Not easy to make a label from scratch Hard to make a table format ex. for nutritional facts table - must insert all the lines by yourself

Vendor Response

Good news! We have simple solutions to your issues. BarTender's auto size feature has been turned on in your system. To return to the default setting of static text size: - Right click on the text object - Choose "Properties" - In the new window, choose "Text format" - Uncheck the Auto Size box Text will now remain a consistent size. BarTender offers pre-formatted new FDA nutrition labels for both the one- and two-column format, and the present FDA nutrition label is included in the BarTender documents folder of your software. These templates include business rules to meet FDA's font size and spacing requirements, and you'll be able to use the labels' variable data fields to autopopulate the nutrition info directly from your database. I'd like to send the new label file to you. Contact me via the email address Capterra provides. You should never have to insert all those lines by yourself!!

“Best barcode creation software I've found.”

OverallI absolutly love this program. If anybody ever asked me for a few suggestions about how to make barcodes, I would only point them in the direction of this program. Its all you need.
ProsThis program is a one stop shop for creating whatever barcode you need. I haven't been able to push it anywhere close to its limits because its always been simple to create the correct style barcode I needed for my various customers projects. I would research what kind of barcode I needed to make and when I go into the program all the settings or barcode types have always been there.
ConsIts not really a con but a warning. Make sure you know the specifications of the barcode type you need to create and plug the correct information into the proper space because the program really is as good as the knowledge of the user.

“BarTender makes business more comfortable.”

OverallGood solution for our business. This is very Fast and easier for train person in barTender. I have got high-quality custom labels.
ProsI have been using BarTender since 2017.It is really good and easy to use. I really like to work with it. Creating labels is easy and fast and I had design more than 1k labels. Setting up the fields that I need to delivered the data is easy to settings up. BitTender web site helps a lot to get the information such as video tutorials and other guides. First time I got the trial version. It is really good 30 days trail version. If I purchase for first time, I don't know software is good or bad. Trail version save the money.
ConsFirst time I started with BarTender version 9.0, I guess which is oldest version. I was good for me until I start to work on version 10.1. That is much better update. When I want to figure out some problems there is no online QA or technical support team. There are no more cons I found.

“Easy Program to use”

ProsBartender makes my life easy making customer labels. I use Bartender to make scan labels and it seems to be the easiest to use. I've used 2 others and they become more of a challenge. They seem to have it figured out. It's easy to select and print.
ConsThere's a lot to know, to make it work. I've learned to use the instructions with Bartender. I wish it was easier to make changes without having to go to my original file to fix issues or add items.

OverallEnables two of our high volume distribution centers to print high quality labels as needed, without concern of quality control issues
ProsI really like the Online Activation and network label printer license server, this helps tremendously managing the Active users / printers on the network.

“Clunky UI and Confusing Form Setup”

ProsA customer of ours requires that we generate bar codes for each of their shipments. They directed us to BarTender. I consider myself fairly fluent in computers, but BarTender's clunky UI and complicated form creation causes me headaches. The software is not user friendly nor is it intuitive. At the end of the day, I am able to create the required bar codes and Packing Lists our customer requires. But the hoops I have to jump to get there discourage me from recommending this software.
ConsOnce a form is created, you cannot input the data directly onto the form. You have to use a data input screen that you reach through Print Preview. It always takes me two passes to get this to work. I input the data once knowing the form will not print it for some unknown reason. I then have to re-input the data a second time and will finally be able to print. All of this could be avoided if I could input data directly onto the form.

“Using Bartender Pro for label printers”

ProsThis software is so easy to set up and configure with external data sources, I was really amazed by this. The latest implementation of Bartender was a central printing solution for label printers. The data for the labels originated from a Filemaker database and a Dynamics solution. For this purpose we've used some of Bartenders automation features.
ConsThe only con I've experienced so far for Bartender Professional is the lack of (written) documentation (or I just couldn't find it online besides some videos on the support sub domain). On the other hand, I didn't really need the documentation as it was so easy to configure.

ConsSometimes it will be very time consuming to drag for the layout(alignment) I still remember how painful and stressful when we tried to come up something that has very strick requirements.

“Bartender software is very easy for the user. The GUI is very intuitive and easy to train new users”

ProsI like that it is intuitive and easy to use. I like that changes can be easily made to the program.
ConsThere isn't really anything that I don't like about the software, but it would be nice if there was a way to incorporate special characters into the labels.

“Used for all our product and misc inhouse labeling.”

ProsOne of the major pluses is that you can design labels off line away from production. Multiple labeling share labeling formats from a server.
ConsIt is more expensive than some of the other cheapo labeling software but is worth the money if you are using constantly.

“BarTender 2019 is perfect for any size company”

OverallThe overall experience was great. We downloaded the 2019 free trial version and worked fantastically. You can find the free trial version here - https://www.logiscenter.co.uk/bartender-free-download You can find the software on special offer at the moment at https://www.logiscenter.co.uk/pos-printers-star-sm-t300dw Definitely, recommend trying it out and download the free version first.
ProsThere is a sense of familiarity even if you haven't used it before. You have the option to create designs of your own! It's very efficient
ConsNot as much support as we'd have liked...

“Barcode Printer”

OverallIn general this software gets the job done. It could be a bit more user friendly so people that have not used it could figure it out easily
ProsI like how this software connects to our sales/inventory software. It makes it easy to print out barcode stickers when needed.
ConsI wish it were easier to edit the design of the barcode stickers

“Lots of features and great support”

ProsSoftware is very flexible, can be configured for variety of setups. Support for various licensing scenarios, support for lots of various printers and formats. Technical support team is very knowledgeable and easy to contact if needed.
ConsThe licensing for a single computer is a little confusing when it comes to how it actually works, and troubleshooting, it relies on a windows service that looks like it should be running on a server, but nonetheless it works and works well.

“Not first-time-user friendly, but very feature-rich”

OverallI was asked to use this software to create various barcodes for a new product range my organisation was releasing. As a first-time user, I did find the software to be very difficult to navigate. After some trial and error though, it became obvious to me that the software was very diverse. For someone who knows what they're doing, the barcoding options are very diverse.
ProsBarcode output options are very diverse.
ConsReally not helpful for first-time users.

“This is a very useful software and functional”

OverallI was able to comply with our customers request to have shipments barcoded instead of just packing slips. it became a requirement for most of our customers
ProsI like the way I can easily change all my fields information instead of having to recreate every label from scratch
ConsThere were some issues with navigation and finding the right options i wanted. i found them eventually but a editable favorits commands list would be helpful

“Very easy to use which is great for someone like me who has little patience.”

OverallBenefits were being able to make my own label on how I wanted it to look and not having to order from someone else and settling for their design.
ProsI am a Safety Lead and I am in charge of labeling all in house chemicals. This program helped greatly in that it had everything I needed.
Conssometimes it prints outside the label. Takes a bit of fidangling but once you figure it out your good to go.

“The best system we evaluated”

OverallThe way the system works, easy to understand and the fact that they charge licenses only for the number of printers, not the number of computers you have the software installed on make the system worth way more than you pay for it.
