Azalea Software Review

Author by

Azalea Software allows you to create numerous barcodes from your own computer and with your own data. This software provides easy-to-use wizards so creating the barcodes is fast and easy. However, each of the applications from this company are much more limited in the number of barcode symbologies, or types of barcodes, they can each create.

There are several software applications available from Azalea Software and they each specialize in creating certain types of barcodes. UPCTools, one of the applications from this company, is simple barcode label software. This barcode generator creates six types of barcode symbologies, which are UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, Bookland and ISSN. While the large number of products is excellent from this software company, you will be very limited in the types of barcodes you can create with each individual product as comparable applications allow you to create dozens of different symbologies without the need for multiple applications.

In addition, many of the applications from Azalea Software allow you to include a variety of characters and punctuation marks. However, many of these products lack design tools such as the ability to add text, color and shapes. You may miss features such as a background grid option and an image library. This software lets you generate barcodes only in U.S. standard measurements, not metric.

Barcode wizards make creating barcodes fast and simple. The wizards can walk you through the creation process so you don't miss a step and to ensure you have the data and information you need. The utility acts like a wizard to help you print barcodes from within other applications. You select the type of barcode you want to create, input your data, preview it in the utility and then copy and paste it into the software you are using, such as Microsoft Excel or Access. It prints to Windows-compliant printers. This software supports only English.

These barcode generator applications work within Windows applications, including databases, spreadsheets, word processors and desktop publishing applications. However, this software is not compatible with Microsoft Office programs that are downloaded on Apple devices.

Azalea Software has several customer support options. If you have any questions or concerns, you can access the FAQs and How-To pages on the company website. There is also email, telephone and a Facebook page available, should you need personalized help from a representative of this software company.
