Exporting Printer Code: In addition to printing directly, the BarTender Enterprise Automation edition can also export specially formatted Printer Code Templates for modification and output by other programs. This code can also be downloaded to various hardware devices.

Uses include:

  • XML Enabled Printer configuration and template download.
  • Key Pad Devices that attach directly to printers.
  • SAP Integrations that use SAPscript-ITF.
  • Custom Programs for any OS (both mobile and desktop)

Simplify integration with .NET SDKs: Instead of writing custom integrations from scratch, you can use the prewritten VB and C# code in our ".NET" software development kits to finish the job much faster.

  • Print SDK: Controls one BarTender at a time.
  • Print Server SDK: Can control multiple BarTenders at once.
  • Sample Web Application: A sample ASP.NET application for web browser printing.

Additional Functionality in BarTender Enterprise Automation

Print Station

Print Station gives non-technical users easy “point and click" selection and printing of templates without ever having to see the inside of a design program.

Because it is a stand-alone application, the use of Print Station eliminates the need to open and print documents through BarTender or through external application integration.

Batch Maker

Batch Maker makes it easy to specify a list of multiple templates to print as a single “batch." Batches can be printed from Batch Maker, BarTender, Print Station, or Windows Explorer.

The Batch Maker application window has an intuitive and familiar interface that makes it easy to create and add documents to a batch file, and subsequently, to specify a printer, the number of copies you wish to print, and/or the specific records to print from a database. Once the batch file is created, multiple documents can be printed over and over again with a single command, eliminating the need to open and print each document separately.

BarTender Integration Builder

The term Integration, as used in BarTender, simply refers to the process of integrating BarTender with other software or other sources of data, which in turn can be used to automate processes in BarTender. The most commonly automated process is printing; however, there are a number of other processes you can automate with integrations. Using the new Integration Builder application, you can create highly customizable integrations to seamlessly connect BarTender's printing capabilities with virtually any enterprise business operation. This powerful service lets you perform enterprise-level tasks, including:

  • Initiate printing automatically at "trigger" events, such as the arrival of an e-mail, a saved file or a modified database.
  • Connect to and communicate with clients via TCP/IP, UDP or HTTP.
  • Perform basic file operations, such as move, rename, delete or copy.
  • Integrate directly with ERP systems with direct support for SAP, Oracle or IBM WebSphere connectivity.

All print jobs resulting from an integration are sent to the printers via a new Print Scheduler Service. This Windows service intelligently assigns jobs to print engines to maximize performance while maintaining print order. Each integration file created with Integration Builder is stored as an XML file on your computer. This application can also be used to test your integrations prior to deployment. You can simulate file, socket and serial port trigger events with sample data, or debug transforms and other actions.

Printer Maestro

Printer Maestro provides a convenient way to monitor the printers and print jobs on your network. Printer Maestro can be configured to send you notifications via e-mail, instant message or text message for a variety of events, including printer errors or warnings. Printer Maestro can use an existing Microsoft SQL Server to store its data, or it can be configured to use a distributed database requiring no additional software.

History Explorer

History Explorer lets you view logged information about past print jobs, including print job messages and simulated snapshots. An essential tool for audit preparation

Reprint Console

Reprint Console allows you to quickly navigate logs of previous print jobs and reprint all or just some items. It works even if the database from which the original template data was read has changed.


  • Librarian lets large groups of designers, administrators and other users cooperatively and securely manage the storage and revision of label formats and other files. Librarian can help you to better manage any label printing system, but it is particularly valuable in highly regulated environments, such medical and pharmaceutical, and highly secure environments, such as military and chemical.

  • File Storage – Allows you to store files in a database rather than "loose" on various hard drives.

  • Security – Provides control over which users can access files within Librarian and what they can do with them.

  • Collaboration Support – Supports the "Check In" and "Check Out" of files to prevent users from overwriting each other's changes.

Administration Console

Administration Console allows system administrators to provide different users with different levels of access to just about every module and function in the entire BarTender Suite. This function can also be used to handle other important aspects of BarTender such as the BarTender System Database, integrations and Windows services.

BarTender Print Portal

BarTender Print Portal is an ASP.Net application that provides a browser-based interface for label selection and printing. Users of browsers on regular PCs, non-Windows computers, and even handheld PDAs can easily browse and select label formats and submit them for printing by the BarTender Web Print Server application running on a Windows server. The Print Portal now offers support for all modern browsers, support for tablets and smart phones, the ability to print using the cloud, and more.
