Understanding the Name Changes
Previously, we had three editions that began with the word "Enterprise." This
has been replaced with two editions: "Automation" and "Enterprise Automation."
|BarTender's three "Enterprise" editions have been
replaced with two "Automation" editions.
The reasons for the name changes are:
Having three editions containing the word "Enterprise" demanded too much
Introduction of the new name "Automation" significantly clarifies which
editions can be controlled from within other software.
We have reserved the word "Enterprise" for only our most powerful edition.
Our "Automation" edition has NOT had any of its powerful features removed.
However, the Enterprise Automation edition continues to provide the broadest
enterprise management functions, most powerful integration capabilities, most
complete security system, and features for centralized and web-based printing.
For more details on the differences between the editions, please see our
Features and Editions Comparison Chart.
