Crimson Press - BarTender Integration
January 22, 2004

Crimson Software is pleased to announce the integration of BarTender*, a leading label design and printing solution.

This new feature allows you, us, or anyone else to design your labels using BarTender.  Their easy-to-use design tools are a great improvement over the previous method of label development, which had to be done by a Crimson Software programmer.

Making the labels part of the Crimson WMS is quite easy... just place the label file into the appropriate folder on your system.  By following some naming conventions, you can create labels that will be automatically populated with information from database fields, including user-defined Custom Fields.

As an option, the Receipt function has been enhanced to load the proper label printing options after each receipt.  This eliminates the need for a separate label printing system and keeps the process running smoothly.

Please see this screen shot for an example of this feature at work.

In keeping with our 'cost-effective' mindset, these features have been included to place more power and flexibility into the hands of the end-user, thereby reducing your reliance on Crimson Software to perform certain tasks.

Those who are currently enrolled in the Software Maintenance Program will receive these enhancements at no additional charge; however, the BarTender software itself must be purchased separately.  For more information about BarTender, see
