Barcodes improve efficiency and are vital to supply chains, inventory management, transportation, asset management, and more. Barcodes provide a means of knowing what a product is, where it originated, and where it goes. That is why when a barcode is unreadable for any reason, it decreases your efficiency, can cause chargebacks and lost shipments, and creates legal exposures that could have been avoided.

From labels, barcodes, RFID tags, and more, BarTender® 2021 has an integrated system that allows you, and anyone you want, to review and approve workflows from any web browser, on any device. Anytime, anywhere. All without risking the security of your systems.

BarTender® 2021 can create and print more commercial-quality label designs with increased quality assurance measures. These measures can accelerate label design and production. 

With ecommerce only expected to rise to about $6.54 trillion in 2022, why wouldn’t you want a trusted barcode labeling software system?

Improved Label Designs

Create simple and straightforward label designs with a WYSIWYG editor without having to mess with complicated coding or X/Y coordinate adjustments. By using templates, you can save on the time it takes to manually enter all the information and replace thousands of printer code files with just one file.

BarTender® 2021 expanded its already wide range of data sources to add more content to your template objects. Data-sourced colors are supported for all template objects and images are supported in dynamic embedded tables. The Color Picker makes it easy to design and reuse colors throughout documents.

Printing Options

Printing can be done from any operating system, device, or browser to any network connected printer. There is no need to install BarTender® or be trained on the software just to print released labels.

This secure central manageability system also has a licensing server redundancy solution that provides automatic failover to maintain a seamless print production even when one of the servers goes down.

BarTender® 2021 can be easily integrated into any current labeling system or upgraded from any previous version of BarTender®. This smooth integration improves productivity and minimizes downtime.

Meeting Compliance for Any Industry

Scanning a label in the healthcare industry

 You and your customers may have specific barcode label standards that must be adhered to for multiple reasons. From manufacturing, through supply chains, to business and/or consumer, BarTender® 2021 barcode labeling software can meet virtually any compliance labeling requirement:

    • Medical devices meet UDI compliance labeling
    • Pharmaceutical and Healthcare meet global serialization regulations
    • Automotive meets AIAG requirements for traceability
    • ANSI and ISO requirements are met for grading

Whether it is a simple traceability requirement or a complex regulatory compliance code, this labeling software has flexible serialization to create the unique serial identifiers your organization needs to keep track of everything. And the information is saved directly into a BarTender® document, BarTender® Global Data Field, or into your own SQL-based database.

Unique Device Identifier (UDI)

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires using a unique device identifier (UDI) on barcode labels in food, beverage, and medical fields.  These labels must be readable by man and machine (scanners).  If the labels are not done to specific standards, your company is liable for more than just fines and chargebacks.  Private label distributors are susceptible to the possibility of legal exposure. 

 All labels must be readable in plain text, as well as machine-readable with scanning using AIDC (automatic identification and data capture) technology. With barcode labels having to comply with ISO/IEC 15415 or ISO/IEC 15416, it is important to get a barcode labeling software system that can meet these requirements from the start.

Global Serialization for Pharmaceuticals 

 The United States, European Union, China, and Brazil have specific serialization requirements, with more countries joining to include this requirement. Examples of the requirements include DSCSAFMD, and 21 CFT Part 11. BarTender® supports pharmaceutical companies with built-in compliance standards. 

 The easy-to-learn platform can add accurate data with a simple drag and drop method. The standards are built into BarTender®, including GS1’s linear and Data Matrix pharma barcodes and traditional linear, two-track, 2D, and color Pharmacodes.

Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG)

The AIAG created standard industries to improve efficiency and accuracy. A single alphanumeric symbology, called Code 39, was established in 1984. This symbology included information like part numbers, purchase order numbers, quantity, and other data identifiers.

Proper barcode labeling tracks automotive parts from manufacturing, through distribution, to the end user. This can impact automotive safety and tracking for accountability during recalls. One wrong digit misprint can have a huge financial impact on everyone involved in the chain.

BarTender® eases that by having the compliance requirements built into the software.

Letter and Numerical Graded Barcodes 

ANSI and ISO are barcode label grading systems based on a letter or a numerical score. These standards play a key role in identifying, tracking, and tracing products as they move through supply chains across the world. With more than 6 million barcode labels being scanned every day, why not have a software system that has this compliance requirement already build into the system?
