A highly respected electronics manufacturer providing products for measurement, calibration, monitoring, and its related software was utilizing a legacy version of BarTender Enterprise. This outdated solution lacked enhanced features, notably causing challenges in deploying and managing the BarTender client software. This limitation also hindered print operators on the production floor from efficiently initiating printing.

One major issue was the lack of control over end users making label design changes, directly impacting quality control. Recognizing the need for enhanced flexibility and security, right down to the user level, the goal was to boost output efficiency while implementing more robust control and security measures.



Whenever the customer presented an issue, the Pragmatyxs team seized the opportunity to explore various solutions and incorporate Pragmatyxs and industry best practices. Pragmatyxs’ aim is to identify the option that not only resolves the problem but also ensures the customer maximizes the value of their investment.

In their recent investigation, during the discovery phase it became apparent that the latest release of BarTender Enterprise boasted a significantly improved Print Portal. This web-based feature provided manufacturing floor operators with a more user-friendly and secure method for printing finished goods labels. It streamlined the process, reducing the number of steps required while upholding rigorous quality assurance and security standards.

The team of Pragmatyxs' consultants took charge of installing and configuring the latest Enterprise edition of BarTender, complete with the enhanced Print Portal, in both test and production environments. Additionally, they provided documentation and training during the migration of artifacts from the legacy environment and post-go-live support to ensure a smooth transition.



By implementing the most recent version of BarTender Enterprise alongside the Print Portal collaboratively with Pragmatyxs, the manufacturer successfully established a streamlined process for finished goods labeling. Notably, they achieved a substantial reduction in template rework and trouble tickets by eliminating dependencies at the label operator end. Additionally, the footprint of BarTender software installations was significantly reduced from 60 to 1, diminishing IT infrastructure management requirements and freeing up IT resources.
