Which Version of Bartender needed for our SIMPLE requirement

Hi,

We are looking at Bartender for our label design solution. Currently we are not sure which license/version we should get: Basic or Professional. We are thinking about using the bartender *ONLY* to design label for ZEBRA printers, load the design file to SAP smartform and/or SapScript and print it using SAP print engine.

With those requirements in mind, which version would do the job you recommend? We are thinking about Basic. Let me know if it is true or otherwise.

Thanks

John

    Hi

    If you want only to create initail label design files, then integrate the design files in to SAP I would suggest basic edition. Simply create the designs the use the print-to-file through the Zebra driver. This will creat ZPL text files which you can then integrate (with a bit of tweaking) directly in to SAP. You can download fully functional highest level on free 30-day trail from Seagull Website, try it and if it works simply buy a licence after 30-days if you want to do additional designs.

    If you may want to take SAP data and route it through bartender then I would sugget skipping Basic/Pro version and go for Automation or Enterprise Automation editions. (these versions come with Commander which can be used to elegantly interface directly with SAP_.

    Regards

    Hi,

    If you're going to use Zebra printers you don't need any additional software to design your labels.

    Not only that SAP provides the Printer Device Types (LZEB2) to print on Zebra printers , for some time now, Zebra CO provides a list of device types that allow you to print Zebra Barcodes.

    You only need to design your label in Smartforms and then print it on a Device with a Zebra-Compatible device type.
