Here are some key features of "ConnectCode Barcode Font Pack":
Industry Specifications Adherence - One of the most important factor for choosing a barcode font is that it adheres to industry specifications. For example, the following properties will need to be considered carefully:
· Thick bar width
· Thin bar width
· Barcode ratio
· Barcode density
· This is to ensure that the barcode created is highly scannable. Ever wondered why the scanning of barcode in some supermarkets looks so difficult and takes so long? The main reason is the barcode has not been created properly and cause the barcode scanners to take a longer time to process.
· ConnectCode Barcode Font has been created and tested vigourously by a team with many years of experience in the Auto-ID and IT industry. It takes into consideration all the above mentioned properties and is definitely one of the best barcode font around.
· Ease of use has always been an important consideration in ConnetCode. Similar products in the industry requires a complicated encoder application that generates mystic numbers and alphabets for the specification of the barcode.
· ConnectCode does make use of an encoder as well. However, the fonts have been designed in such a way that a user can even specify a barcode by keying in the characters directly as much as possible.
