STRANDWARE BRINGS ITS MOST POWERFUL BAR CODE LABEL PUBLISHER TO WINDOWS WITH NEW POWER LABEL VERSION 3.0 FOR WINDOWS, ITS FIRST WINDOWS EDITION

    EAU CLAIRE, Wis., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- StrandWare Inc. is bringing out a Windows edition of its most powerful bar code label software ever.  It incorporates a WYSIWYG label designer, a powerful built-in label database, a label and forms inventory tracker, a simultasking print engine and an arsenal of advanced label design and deployment features.  New Power Label(R) version 3.0 for Windows will be available (1Q94) for $995 (all prices suggested U.S. resale at participating resellers; inquiries invited).
    Power Label supports more than 200 matrix, laser and thermal printers.  It supports many label-specific thermal printers directly, since there are no Windows drivers for these.  It can open several label databases at once and simultaneously print from each to a separate printer.  It can print in changeable colors, print to the front or back of a page and support internal printer fonts (though it requires no cartridges nor soft fonts).  And it can print with an accuracy to 1/1000th of an inch.
    Its advanced WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get") label publisher can automatically wrap text around image objects.  It can rotate and shade most images.  It makes especially good use of Windows drag & drop facilities; with easy mouse movements, a user can maneuver images around any label design.  Its label image elements can include PCX or BMP images, bar codes in virtually any standard format, lines, rectangles, shaded background areas and formatted variable-length text data.  Power Label can pull its data from its own built-in databases or from spreadsheet, dBase III-compatible external database files, DIF files or CSV (comma-separated variable) ASCII files, as well as from keyboard or wand input at printing time.
    StrandWare's experience in the commercial bar code industry shows in its advanced feature set.  It can automatically increment or decrement the serial or ID number on a label.  Labels can include the date and time of their printing, text or images from files and more.  They can also include bar codes in virtually every format in common use, without requiring special printer cartridges or fonts.
    Bar code labels have many applications, from speeding mails to identifying products or processing coupons.  They're useful for shipping, tracking and sorting goods, numbering tickets, taking inventory or attendance and tracking documents.
    StrandWare has become a leading manufacturer of bar code design and printing software since its founding in 1985 (as "The Computer Connection").  It offers a full line of bar code design and printing software solutions for end users and developers on DOS and Windows PC platforms and on the AS/400.
