ConnectCode barcode label software can create a large number of barcode labels to track, ship and manage your company's packages and products. With this application, you can create dozens of one-dimensional and two-dimensional barcodes, and it provides a small handful of customization features to make the process even easier.

This barcode maker offers dozens of barcode types and hundreds of fonts. It copies the barcodes you create to the clipboard of the software in which you are working, whether that's Microsoft Word, Excel, Access or another application.

ConnectCode creates many of the most common types of barcodes. With this application you can create one-dimensional barcodes, or linear barcodes, as well as two-dimensional barcodes such as QR codes, which can hold more data than linear codes. Some of the supported one-dimensional barcodes include Code 39, Code 39 Extended, Code 93, Code 128 Auto, Code 128A, Code 128B, Code 128C, Interleaved 2 of 5, EAN 13 (European Article Numbering), EAN 8. Some of the two-dimensional barcodes include Data Matrix, PDF417 and QR Codes.

ConnectCode also provides an application called Barcode & Label that can run on Windows machines including PCs, tablets, phones and even Xbox One consoles. This app is available in the Windows store and contains many of the advanced features you need to create your barcodes, such as Excel integration and a WYSIWYG designer.

This barcode label software is easy to use. You pick the barcode you need from a menu then add text and adjust the font size. You can also easily enter the barcode's data without any complex steps. You can change the barcode color and background color. You can also adjust the width of the barcodes and add quiet zones.

Unfortunately, this software does not let you add shapes or alter the orientation of barcodes. It lacks the ability to display barcodes on a grid and doesn't let you import images. Measurements are only in U.S. standard, not metric.

ConnectCode barcode generator has a user's guide embedded in the software and offers online tutorials and video tutorials. If you have any other questions you can also access a small FAQs section on the company website that can provide answers to many basic questions. You can access support and technical help via email. There is no telephone support for individuals calling from the United States.
