Description: ZebraDesigner is a label design software that offers a barcode printing solution for users of Zebra branded label printers. This product includes a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) label designer interface for creating and printing barcode labels and specific printer configuration and diagnostic utilities.

ZebraDesigner is offered in Essentials and Pro editions. The Essentials edition does not have a licensing fee associated with it and includes all the base functionality of the software. The Pro edition has a licensing fee associated with it and includes additional database connectivity and Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) capabilities. The scope of this entry is for both editions.

The Essentials edition of this technology does not utilize a database, as labels created by this technology are saved to the user`s local drive. The Pro edition of this technology can connect to any Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) complaint database including My Structured Query Language (MySQL), Microsoft Access, Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server, and Oracle Database to store and retrieve labels.
