Wasp combines barcode and label creation software for Office

The software is targeted at small businesses that need to get a better handle on inventory tracking and related data updates.

Wasp Barcode Technologies has combined two separate software applications aimed at helping small businesses that need to print barcode labels for inventory or tracking purposes.

As its name implies, the application, called WaspLabeler & Barcode Maker for Office, integrates into Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word to allow for the creation of labels, product scan sheets and so on directly from within these widely used productivity tools. The intent is to help cut back on data entry errors.

The two applications included in the new integrated solution are WaspLabeler +2D, which allows for the organization of barcode labels and other inventory labelers; and Wasp Barcode Maker, for actually creating the barcode and association them with specific data sets.

Aside from Microsoft Office integration, WaspLabeler +2D is compatible with Intuit QuickBOoks 2008 or later, as well as Microsoft SQL, ODBC and other external databases.

The combined applications carry a list price of $199; the applications can also be purchased separately for $149 each.
