You have not only purchased BarTender, the world’s leading software for label, barcode, RFID and card
printing, but you have also committed to maintaining the value of your investment. As a paid subscriber to
Standard Maintenance and Support for BarTender, you are entitled to:
• updates to new versions of BarTender as they become available
• updates to interim releases
• live support from our legendary support team
• paid printer add-ons and / or edition upgrades
Updates to any supported version of BarTender are available to you when you’re ready to implement them into your production systems. If you are using a supported version of BarTender and don’t feel like updating when a new version comes out, you don’t have to. Anytime you want access to new features, support for latest compliance standards, and compatibility with future versions of Windows, it’s all there – ready for you
to download. When you are ready, simply download the latest version from the customer portal (https://portal.seagullscientific.com), install it and activate it using your existing PKC. If you are not using a supported version of BarTender, you should upgrade to a version that is supported so that you have access to live support and the latest security updates and other fixes.
If you are using a supported version of BarTender, your paid Standard Maintenance and Support Agreement entitles you to Standard Support from Seagull Scientific. Standard Support includes live technical support via chat or phone with a first-time guaranteed response time of 24 business hours (excluding weekends and holidays).
If you are not using a supported version of BarTender, you may not be entitled to Standard Support from Seagull Scientific. Contact your Reseller or Seagull Scientific for information about Maintenance and Support options available to you.
Premium Support entitles you to all the benefits of Standard Support from Seagull Scientific but expands the coverage hours to 24 x 7; 365 days a year. Premium Support is only available for Automation and Enterprise editions of BarTender and offers a guaranteed first-time response time of 2 hours.
If you are not using a supported version of BarTender, you may not be entitled to Premium Support from Seagull Scientific. Contact your Reseller or Seagull Scientific for information about Maintenance and Support options available to you.
An active Maintenance and Support Agreement is required for Printer Add-ons and edition upgrades. The Maintenance and Support Agreement end date will remain the same for all software and printers associated with the PKC.
If you upgrade your software license to a higher edition or increase the number of licensed printers, then the maintenance fee will be adjusted based on the list price of the upgraded licensed software. The difference between the previous and new maintenance fees is due at the time of upgrade. This fee difference is handled by purchasing a “maintenance upgrade” for the number of months remaining in the current maintenance term.
