Time for something new! End of support for BarTender 10.1

Today, 31st of October 2019 we relaunch our Logiscenter blog, aiming to keep our clients up to date on the main topics of the sector. New products, legislation, best practices and case studies… We hope you find it useful!

The first piece of news we want to focus on is that TODAY, October 31st will be the last day of support for BarTender 10.1, the leading software for label creation that was launched in 2013.
