Barcode Software and Fonts for Mac
ConnectCode Barcode Software uses Open Type computer fonts to create industrial grade barcodes for use on a Mac. Using fonts to create barcodes is a well-known practice in the auto-id industry. When a barcode - created using a font - is printed, it rasters to the resolution of the printer and will not be limited to the DPI (Dots per Inch) of an image. This results in barcodes that are of the highest quality and are able to meet the strictest requirements of many organizations and businesses. Moreover, barcode fonts can be easily embedded into a graphics, an office or business document, enabling the barcode generation process to fit into your business workflow seamlessly.
ConnectCode Barcode Software uses the highly acclaimed barcode fonts engine developed by ConnectCode. This engine has over the years helped many companies clear their independent barcode verification tests such as those by GS1/ISO and is widely adopted by many Fortune 500 companies.
I have used several bar code font applications over the past 20 years and found that ConnectCode is the cleanest solution I have found. It works perfectly with Crystal Reports and doesn't have any issues embedding the bar code fonts into a PDF. –T.M. (BrassCraft)
ResMed is a signatory to GS1 so the support of these barcode formats is very important. I showed this to one of our IT staff and he commented that it was better than anything they had. –Dr P.S. (ResMed Ltd)
We chose to use your product because it installed flawlessly into excel and we were able to document the creation process so that staff can produce the barcodes in 4 simple steps. –Edgar (CTO - Record Guardian Inc.)
The font allows for the barcode to be consistantly sized and placed regardless of what data the initial page of the document uses to generate its code. –Glyn Rowling (Amethyst Mailing)
