We develop mobile scanning applications for tracking mail and baggage.
In order to test these applications we need to generate thousands of barcodes quickly
and print them on plain paper. Your MS Excel Add-in solved that problem for us.
We are able to take a snapshot from our production database, import it into excel
and convert the data to barcodes within seconds. This enables us to recreate an entire scanning operation
for a station in our test system without having to travel to the station saving us time and money.
The software is amazingly easy to use, very efficient, and was one of the cheapest options that we looked at.

We needed a quick simple low cost solution to add Barcodes to our MS Access applications.
After evaluation of half a dozen or so applications, we decided to use Barcodewiz, mainly because of its simple integration to MS Office.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this software.

My small business need for a barcode generator was urgent.
I needed just 11 barcodes a year for the front cover of a new magazine I planned to publish in June 2007.
The distributors insisted there had to be a bar code.
I tried professional barcode designers - too expensive!
I tried some freeware - it didn't do what I wanted or meet the distributor's specifications.
With a couple of months to go, I started to experiment with commercial barcode software packages.
Four top brands were tested and the last one I tested was BarCode Wiz.
The others were really hard to figure and did not seem able to meet the technical specifications of the particular barcode I required.
Finally, I tried BarCode Wiz and it proved to be the only one I could figure out.
It gave me the right result after only a little head-scratching.
My magazine was successfully launched and is now the leading magazine in its niche in Australia, with all barcodes professionally created by BarCode Wiz.
It's just a few minutes work to modify the previous barcode for each new issue, save it and place it on the front cover.
The barcodes read perfectly every time. I look forward to launching my next magazine title and will use BarCode Wiz for that as well.
Thanks guys! You were part of making my magazine launch possible and you've saved me heaps of money.

The best product I have found to maintain our database of bar codes -- very
easy to convert numeric values to barcodes and unlike other products,
BarCodeWiz seamlessly converts multiple values with one mouse click.
We had just put in a new warehouse / point of sale system for our wholesale
business and needed to barcode all of our products.
Barcodewiz has been a very simple solution to our needs.
It is easy to use, easy to understand and has worked very well for us.

We used Barcodewiz as an integrated barcoding feature of our retail
software. It is simple, stable and works excellently. Really have no complaints.

BarCodeWiz was recommended to me by my supervisor about 4 years ago.
We needed a way to generate bar-coded labels from Microsoft Access reports.
The product installed effortlessly and the VBA code that came with the
software worked without modification. I haven't researched any
competitive products because yours worked so well. I have recommended it to other programmers as well.
My company uses barcodewiz all the time and we are very happy with it. One time our system crashed and we lost everything.
Barcodewiz kindly replaced the software and helped us get back to normal no charge.
Jeune Metal Products Ltd.
Your barcode system is a great tool that I am using nearly everyday.
What I use it for is simply creating barcodes for the products we sell in our shop when they come without one.
I had tried a similar product before yours but never got it to work. It is very simple to download and to use
(I use the EAN 13 digits). I was also very impressed by your fast answer and support after having lost
all my data when my computer crashed. I would definitely recommend it. Well done, best of luck.

I needed to be able to embed a barcode in several documents - using a card for customer charges in a POS system. [...] Works as advertised... very good product.
The software is easy to use with all Microsoft Office products including Office 2007. After reviewing most of BarCodeWiz's top competitors' offerings, I selected BarCodeWiz due to its advertised functionality, ease of use and cost effective pricing structure (i.e. single user corporate license). The software delivered as advertised exceeding my most ambitious expectations. I currently use it as an active X add-in control for a Microsoft Access 2007 barcode labeling application that I developed. Using BarCodeWiz, labels print fast, accurate and most of all, BarCodeWiz's active X control has performed totally bug-free. BarCodeWiz offers a wide assortment of symbologies, flexibility in the scaling and sizing of barcodes, is printer independent and allows for the fast development of professional looking barcode labels. BarCodeWiz is easy to install and intuitive to use when designing labels, etc. by utilizing the properties tab when designing/defining a label.
Originally, was under the impression that in order to provide barcode functionality to an Access applications, one only needed to copy a .dll file to the application. I later found out that in order to have barcode functionality, one needs to install BarCodeWiz.dll on each machine that the application will be installed on. This was no big deal but caused a little confusion at first.
In closing - this is an EXCELLENT piece of software and is a great value proposition! As barcodes become more important in warehousing and commerce applications, so does the ability to design, develop and print your own barcode labels.
I work for a medium size nonprofit organization as an IT Director and must
wear many hats. Here is one of the ways your software helps me: using mail
Merge with MS Word, I put the members' ID number in a barcode that we scan
for attendance. We also put their barcode on forms that we ask them to fill
out and return to us. I am sorry but nothing comes to mind regarding what
would improve the software. Your software does what I need it to do all the
time and I would be lost without it.
BarCodeWiz was extremely helpful in printing our name badges for required
training. We used the barcodes to track attendees entering and exiting the
class room. This eliminated the need for sign-in sheets. We were also able
to then merge the scan data with our name database and file our attendees
hours electonically instead of mannually. Since we have 350 attendees at
our annual seminar this was extremely useful to use.
The original install and use of the product was a breeze. It was very easy
to merge the barcode with our access data base and then print the barcode on
their name badges. The participants wore the name badges and were easily
scanned in and out. We used opticon opn-2001 hand scanners to scan
I have also used it to merge data in a word document and this worked well.
The only draw back I have found is when I updated to the latest version I
had to complety redo the link in microsoft access to print the barcode.
Access would not automatically read the existing info from the old barcode
that was programed into the field. The field had to be deleted and then
We wanted to set up a simple stock control system for our craft
salesroom, so we needed to create labels which could have data encoded,
and could be read by the barcode reader we used for the Library.
BarCodeWiz was easy for a non technical person, and I was making
barcodes with in a few minutes of first installing the software. It
really is easy to use and intuitive.
I have now demonstrated our system to two other craft groups, and have
recommended your software.
I liked being able to use a demo version first. This assured me that the
software would do what I wanted, and was simple to install and use.
A company we were building products for wanted the packing slip list of products to be barcoded.
We needed a program that would work with Microsoft Access 2003, and yours does.
It only took about 30 minutes to design and have the report done using BarCodeWiz. We are really happy with it.
I had just created a new consumer product and needed to produce bar codes for it.
It was relatively easy to produce the bar code, esp with the immediate help I
received from your help desk. Works great, great price!

BarCodeWiz had a fair price and exactly the tools I needed to
incorporate the fonts into our Access based system. Thanks BarCodeWiz!

It's a good buy, fast and hassle free.
I have bought Your software for a customer, because i needed a 2of5i-font in
a program for this customer. Useful was, that Your font was easy to use with an algorithm to calculate a
I have tried this with software from a competitor. I finished also this, but
it was not so easy as Your font.
If someone asked me, I could say 'Take it!' without any inhibition.
Today, I have actual no tasks with barcode-fonts, but I remember Your
organisation, if I have to do another task like this.
[...] we are only printing one number
on a small 1 inch label. A wand then reads the label and even though
the label is small it still reads it correctly. We are very happy with the support that you have provided.
We will be purchasing the web version from you in the future.
I really like using your software it's very easy to use.
We were originally looking for a barcode generating application that was
directly compatible with MS Office and was easy to use. Further to this,
the application had to be compatible with Crystal Reports. We needed a
reliable and efficient means to track our processes through to fruition.
We were relatively new to barcoding, and the free trial allowed us to
accurately assess your product. It was certainly more easily implemented
and accessible than other products available at the time. The feedback
on what package was appropriate for our needs was also very friendly,
and the support assistance we received in implementing the software was
On a number of occasions, I have recommended your software to other
acquaintances and peers outside of our company when they inquire about
how our processes work.
BarcodeWiz is a great tool and it help us a lot in the performance of our
It is easy to use and handle within the plant.
Ease of use, accuracy and price/performance were reasons for choosing BarCodeWiz.
We purchased the software in order to automate the
identification of our customers via a hand held device. This
identification was key to enforce the visit and therefore the service
provided by our salesmen.
I think the download of this software was very easy and I had no problem
to check the software possibilities and make a few printing tests.
I found your software on the internet, looking for a program that would
insert barcodes into an Excel spreadsheet I keep to create tags for our
I love almost everything about it. It is very user friendly and easy to
learn. If you want to change the barcode format, that is easy too. Any
change is a no-brainer. It makes beautiful clear barcodes--we've never had
any problem with any of them.
Also customer support has always been available, helpful and friendly.
That's saying a lot these days!
Monelle M. Richmond
Our warehouse moved to a barcode only inventory management software
system requiring all our vendors to barcode label product and cartons
before shipping to us. Without barcoding first, the product can't be
received into inventory or shipped out. While most of our suppliers
can easily handle this labeling request, many of the smaller vendors
With Barcode Wiz, I have now been able to easily generate
images of the barcode labels needed, e-mail to them along with my
purchase orders and they are now able to easily print and apply the
required barcodes. Because I generate the UPC barcodes for them I'm
able to add p.o. numbers and descriptions and text onto to the labels
which makes things very easy to receive and identify by our warehouse.
Before Barcode Wiz, I had to go to the time and expense of printing (via
another software package called Bartender) the labels and sending them
to these vendors which was pain in the wazzoo.
Before finding Barcode Wiz, I tried another software package compatible with Excel (can't
remember the name off the top of my head) and it was not usable because
nobody could so see or print the barcode images that I sent to them
(unless that person also had the same software on their computer).
Operations and Purchasing Manager
When a major customer required us to barcode our parts, we did an internet
search and chose barcodewiz based on the following: 1. compatibility with
the customer's request, 2. ease of use with MS Office, and 3. value.
Now we are using barcodewiz for several customers with different barcode
types. Since our products are serialized, we appreciate the way barcodewiz
integrates with MS Office mail-merge.
Barcodewiz is easy to use and it does the job.
Thanks for making a reasonably priced, trouble-free product.
When I found BarCodeWiz online I was looking for a way to reduce the cost of buying barcodes.
We're a small school library with a small budget. Downloading the demo showed me that it was just the program I needed.
BarCodeWiz has been great for creating my own barcodes and the support has been excellent.
I needed to be able to create bar codes in Excel and generate check
digits, etc.[...] I've always been very happy with your software - no need to look any further.
One time my program got corrupted somehow and it was out of warranty - and you
helped me download a fresh copy... [...]
The software does everything it is supposed to do....
Mad by Design
BarCodeWiz is a product I would continue to recommend to any of my customers.
I could not find a product on the market that was as comprehensive in the types of barcode labels it can produce
with the ability to fine tune the output to meet my customers' needs.
(I was up and running producing barcode labels within minutes!)
The support from BarCodeWiz has always been nothing short of exceptional...

I currently use BarCodeWiz in an MS-Access database application I created for the purpose of generating barcode labels for subsequent application onto our medication canisters (Talyst provides value-added solutions to the pharmacy sector).
I'm extremely happy with BarCodeWiz. I'm most impressed with its flexibility and easy to understand interface. It couldn't be easier to use.
I didn't need to compare your product against any others, as it fit perfectly into our application (which is used almost constantly) within minutes of trying it.
I would highly recommend BarCodeWiz to anyone needing a powerful, yet highly and easily configurable barcode utility for both simple and complex applications.

We use your component for 5 main reasons :
- no bugs found
- easy to use
- smaller size
- small memory used
- easy Office integration
I bought the developer licence beacause I needed to include it in my application package installation.
I hope these few words will help potential customer to choose the best barcode component.

We were looking for an inexpensive, flexible, and easy-to-use barcode system
that would fit into our existing windows-based system. Your software fit
our needs very well.
I use BarCodeWiz to make barcodes for all my bid sheets and bidder
stickers. I have been using BarCodeWiz 2.0 for several years now and have
had no problems with it. I have BarCodeWiz loaded as a .DLL on my base
computer at the events so I can make new bid sheets and bidder stickers on
the fly. I have never had an instance where BarCodeWiz gave me an incorrect
or unreadable barcode.
Thanks for the great program, it has helped me help charities raise over
$500,000 in the last several years.
Craig van der Smissen
We have been very happy with barcodewiz. We use it to track our certified
mail. We create a barcode (in addition to USPS) when a letter is being sent
out, and can use our barcode scanner when it comes back!
We also create barcodes for our invoices too! Tracking payments is always
- We had a requirement to automatically generate barcode images from a
barcode number. These barcodes were to be placed on our map products. This automated an otherwise manual process.
- Most useful part of the software was the API that allowed us to
integrate BarCodeWiz smarts into our Visual Basic code. BarCode wiz also
had some great GUI examples for creating barcodes based on your own
- BarCodeWiz was one of the first barcode toolsets we found, and it was
reasonably priced. We tested it and it worked for our requirements. We
looked into other products but did not thoroughly test them.
- I would recommend BarCodeWiz if it suits your business needs,. It has
certainly been useful for our organisation.

As a small business owner self-printing product labels, I needed a way to
create barcodes for customers requiring individual barcodes by title.
BarCodeWiz software provided an economical and simple way to produce
readable barcodes right now.
I did not research many options, I knew what I needed and wanted simple,
quick, and cost effective. That is what I got with barcodewiz.

It's a program we use regularly to allow us to scan versus keystroke data.
Don Rogers, Corporate Logistics Manager
I have been using your software for few years and I am very happy it.
The application is quick to install, very reliable with a superb
Microsoft Office integration.
I began using BarCode Wiz back in 2005 when I needed to print warehouse rack labels for our WMS implementation. BarCodeWiz was tremendously flexible in allowing us to print both standard pallet rack labels (3" x 5" with human readable text) and "Man Down" barcode location labels to assist our fork lift operators in scanning the higher level locations from the floor. The flexibility of the various symbologies is also very useful. The scanning of these labels has been flawless since the installation over 4 years ago. We utilize Excel as our main program for using BarCodeWiz.
With every new rack we have installed, we have utilized BarCodeWiz to create the rack labels. It is so easy to increase the height and width of the barcode to customize our labels perfectly. We have also used this software to create employee badges for scanning into our Time & Attendance system. Again, the ease of the software gives us the ability to customize any type of barcode we need to create.
Thanks BarCodeWiz for such useful software!
The Swiss Colony
You have a great product. You helped me quite a bit when I started.
Recently we opened a new woman's fashion store.
The clothes we negotiate have their own labels with a lot of different (for
us, unusable) barcodes. We had to develop our own clothes receiving and labeling system.
(The one we first bought was unusable and returned)
After creating the EAN codes with links to our data system we where out
"shopping" for barcode fonts.
We tested several vendors and found Barcodewiz as the definitive best
solution for our purpose.
Barcodewiz was easy to implement in our application and extremely easy to
use (just as easy as changing fonts)
Thank you GetMySystem.

What more can I say than WOW! The activex BarcodeWiz is so friendly to use
that everybody can use it without any programming experience.
I used it in my Visual Basic program and it work just fine. I print a lot of
barcode everyday and I can say that it save me time and money.
And the service is so extraordinary and very fast. If you have any question,
they will be happy to answer you. The people are great and take time to
listen to you. Customers are not just a number. I won't hesitate to do
business with them in the futur and I recommend this product to everybody.
Two thumbs up!

I needed an easy quick way of adding barcodes to a Microsoft Access

IT Manager and MCP
We found ourselves needing to make barcodes for our invoices but had specific size restrictions
that needed to be considered. After trying several trial versions of other manufacturers software
we were told about your software from one of our other departments who was already using your software.
After running a few tests and contacting Barcodewiz to make some size alterations we were able to
finally decide on your software. We found that the ease of use, helpful staff, and flexibility of your company
made it the best choice for all our needs. Thanks again for all your help.
Whilst researching barcode creation software we could not find any products that allowed
our developers to simply integrate barcode creation into our existing applications in such an easy way.
The product comes with some great examples and it was a very short learning process
to include the active x control into our corporate applications.
I have found bar code wiz incredibly easy to use. I use your barcode
program for sales sheets for my sales reps. Before your program our
customers had to enter the 12 digit UPC number on every order. Now our
customers scan the barcode and their orders are easily uploaded into their
I tested out a few competitors products before I bought the bar code wiz.
Bar code wiz was by far the easiest to use. I am not that computer
proficient so I needed something easy to install and easy to use. Barcodewiz fit the bill perfectly.
I can only flatter the simplicity of this barcode utility and compliment you or the team
who developed this truly wizard software. Its integration with MS Office has simplified my life
and ability to flexibly use this tool in each and every way I desire.
I don't know what you have to add to it but personally it provides me
with all the facilities I need to complete my work.
