BarTender goes to cloud

Seagull Scientific has released BarTender Cloud, a platform simplifying label printing operations through a centralized, cloud-based system

Seagull Scientific, the developer of BarTender software for labels, barcodes, documents and RFID tags, has released BarTender Cloud, a platform simplifying label printing operations through a centralized, cloud-based system enabling printing from any web browser or mobile device.

By standardizing labeling processes through BarTender Cloud, organizations can gain greater control over the way their documents are printed and managed, leading to significant gains in label accuracy and consistency while optimizing logistics and productivity.

BarTender Cloud is a Software as a Service (SaaS) technology that will free customers from the need to install and maintain their own IT hardware and software infrastructure. It eliminates IT capital expenses and reduces overall IT operating costs while enhancing mobility and communication enterprise-wide, including across multiple business sites, with suppliers and field service teams.

‘Just as Seagull pioneered the labeling software market 30 years ago, we are revolutionizing label printing once again with BarTender Cloud. Given its flexibility and power, BarTender software has always been a composable solution, able to excel within the broad range of our customer’s labeling environments,’ said Harold Boe, president and CEO of Seagull Scientific.

Ian Einman, Seagull Scientific’s CTO, added: ‘By integrating new technologies with our guiding principles of ‘simple and easy’, we’ve designed a true multi-tenant platform that is open and extensible with a service-oriented architecture and a powerful REST API. Label printing, management and other services are now available in our secure, scalable, and high availability next generation cloud platform.’

BarTender Cloud introduces several technical innovations including Intelligent Printing enabling automatic connection and printing to any printer including support for optimized high-performance printing. Nearly 8,000 printer models are supported. It also boasts an integrated label template library that makes connecting to data sources and configuring data entry forms as easy as clicking through three guided steps.

‘While BarTender Cloud is an ideal fit for today’s organizations operating in manufacturing, warehousing, retail, and other industries who are moving to the cloud, BarTender’s SaaS offering will also position these organizations for their ongoing digital transformation, and the evolution of labeling as we enter a new era of personalized labeling and e-labeling,’ said Boe. ‘Whether it’s meeting our customer’s growing preference for easily personalized label printing, or their consumer’s need for more linked online product information, BarTender Cloud is the next milestone in our mission to achieve a truly responsive, flexible and future-proof solution that effectively meets our customers’ wide range of labeling needs— now and into the future—in the simplest way possible.’

BarTender Cloud is available in the US now and will be available globally through existing partner reseller channels in 2023.
