GS1-Compliant Product Recommendations for Code 128, QR Code, and DataMatrix

We feel that your products suit our requirement. We are using Visual Studio 2010 with Crystal Reports (version 13, for designing reports in .Net applications).

We specifically are using GS1-128, GS1-QR Code, and GS1-DataMatrix symbologies for our barcode solutions.

We are interested in purchasing your products, after evaluating them with respect to our requirements.

Please suggest which products will be best suited for the above development environment and the above GS1-compliant barcode symbologies.

Operating System: Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows 2008 server

Application: Visual Studio 2010 with Dot net framework 2.0 to 4.0 reporting using SAP Crystal Reports v13.x for Visual Studio

Best Answer

The products that match the requirements (in order by recommended technology, with individual notes and hyperlinks):

1. Streaming Services (GS1-128, GS1-QR Code, and GS1-Datamatrix):

Streaming Services stream barcode images directly into applications, no fonts or other components need to be installed.

· Dynamic Barcode Generator Subscription (hosted by IDAutomation)
· Java Barcode Servlet (hosted by your company)
· Streaming Barcode Server for IIS (hosted by your company)

Live demo available to be tested. Choose the barcode type wanted, press the Update Barcode button. The URL to copy/paste in the field is in the bottom Barcode Generator URL box.

2. Barcode Fonts (GS1-128, GS1-QR Code*, and GS1-Datamatrix*):

Barcode fonts require an additional component to encode the data before the font is applied. When using Crystal Reports, there are various font-encoder options:

· Crystal Reports UFL (for each individual barcode-type, included in the respective font package download)
*2D UFLs (QR-Code and DataMatrix) are not available in 64bit modes (x64 or AnyPC on a 64bit machine) and will only function in x86 (32bit) compilations.

· Font Formulas (for each individual barcode-type, included in the respective font package download) - not available for QR-Code

3. Crystal Reports Native Generators (GS1-128 and GS1-Datamatrix) - not available for QR-Code

The Native generators for Crystal Reports are fully embedded barcode components that do not use fonts or have any external dependencies.
