BarTender Software Automation Version - Key Features

BarTender Automation Edition offers a step up from the Professional Edition with advanced features that take labelling operations to a new level. Here are some of the key features of BarTender software Automation Edition.

Unlimited Printer Licenses

The Automation Edition of the BarTender software allows organizations to deploy an infinite number of printers for labelling jobs at the same time.

Please note that the Automation Edition, by default, comes with only two printer licenses. Therefore, if you wish to deploy more than two printers, you must purchase additional printer licenses as add-ons.

Supported Companion Application

BarTender Automation Edition comes with a set of companion applications that help organizations to streamline their complex label designing and printing operations. These companion applications include.

Administration Console

Helps with the management and configuration of BarTender administration and system settings.


Helps to create labels and document templates.

History Explorer

Provides a central location for data logging and audit trails that include information such as print history, user access, and more.

Please note that the Automation Edition only logs data for up to seven days and stores it in a local database.

Data Builder

Allows users to create and manage their own database without needing third-party applications such as Access, Excel, or CSV files.

Print Station

A simple interface for accessing and printing BarTender documents.

Print Portal

Enables dynamic web-based printing.

Integration Builder

Helps in connecting BarTender software with different business systems in order to enable automatic printing directly from those systems.

Process Builder

A simple, graphical user interface for creating and supporting custom label and document printing solutions without the need for computer programing languages (like C# or VB.NET).

Reprint Console

Logs print jobs and help reprint identical duplicates of previously printed labels and documents that may have gone missing or been damaged.

Optional Premium Maintenance and Support

By default, BarTender Automation Edition offers one year of standard support and maintenance. The standard maintenance and support plan provides users with live technical help through phone and chat during business hours, with a guaranteed 24-hour response time.

However, customers who want a more comprehensive support package can upgrade to the premium maintenance and support option. The premium plan offers 24/7 live support access with a guaranteed two-hour response time.

Intelligent Forms

BarTender Automation Edition helps organizations reduce manual work and save time with its Intelligent Forms feature. 

With this feature, users can create custom forms with built-in logic and conditions that trigger automated actions such as label printing when certain pre-defined conditions are met. The feature also allows users to create process files for automating repetitive print-related workflows and tasks.

Furthermore, this incredible Intelligent Forms feature also allows users to create custom templates for printers and terminals that automatically merge user input information into the final printed output. With this technology, users can quickly create tailored printouts based on their requirements without manually entering data or adjusting parameters each time they want to run print operations.

Printer Code Templates

BarTender Automation Edition comes with the capability to export label design templates as printer code templates.

Printer code templates are files that contain delimited fields that a print system can recognize and utilize to merge user input data. By exporting templates as printer code, users can ensure that their label templates will work with other print systems without requiring a manual printing setup.

Integration With Virtually Any Business System

Seagull Scientific’s BarTender Automation Edition is fully compatible with almost any business system (ERP, WMS, or MES), allowing customers to connect BarTender’s software to existing systems and processes and enable automated document printing directly from those systems.

IBM Websphere, Infor, Körber, Microsoft Dynamics, Epicor, Sage, SAP HANA, and Oracle are just some of the many business systems that can be integrated with BarTender Automation Edition 2022.

BarTender REST API

BarTender 2022 takes automation to a whole new level with its innovative REST API. With the power of this modern method, users can now build custom web application integrations to exchange data with others over a network or the Internet and enable automated label printing.

BarTender REST API uses Custom, Swagger, Insomnia and Postman as sending applications and uses only three REST commands: POST, GET, and PATCH. The REST API supports.

  • Basic Authentication, Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) and Windows Challenge/Response (NTLM).
  • Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)
  • Curl, C#, and .NET languages for custom applications
