Overall Satisfaction with BarTender

BarTender is currently used by one of our Manufacturing sites. It is on the roadmap to roll BarTender out to all 4 of our sites of the next 1-2 years in line with our new ERP system. It currently allows us design our labels for our stock. We use it to create multiple different labels for different medias. It also allows us to print our labels from a cloud based ERP system.
  • Intuitive - Loads of Options
  • Easy to Use - The documentation included is easy to Follow
  • Reliable - Very minimal issues
  • Resource Intensive - Can use a lot of resources
  • Pricey - But you get what you pay for
  • Licensing can be quite difficult to understand
  • Ability to Design and Create Customer Specific Labels
  • Able to link to different file repositories
  • Ability to design labels for different media types
We selected BarTender for the amount of things that it can do. The options that you can configure in the software just make it super flexible. It will easily grow with the business. It also enables you to have built in DR across all the sites when it is up and running properly. It comes with so many different management tools and re-print consoles that it just fits with our business.

The integrations that you can create allow you to pick up multiple different file type and carry out multiple different tasks. We use to to connect to Azure File Shares where our ERP system outputs CSV files. The integration then scans this directory for any new .CSV files and then carries out the steps to print a label that we designed using their design software.
