Barcodes as a Service (Software as a Service, SaaS)

ActiveBarcode Enterprise World Edition
In addition to the software editions that allow you to create barcodes in unlimited numbers and for unlimited time on your own computers, we also offer our software as a service in the form of an API, which provides you with the functions of ActiveBarcode without having to install and maintain software on your computers.

REST API While you pay a one-time license fee for our software editions, you purchase an API key for our software as a service solution which entitles you to use it and for which you pay only as long as you want to use it.

With the ActiveBarcode REST API barcodes can be generated without installing any software. Barcodes were created by a https request and can be integrated universally into any workflow, html page, web- and desktop application. Regardless of the platform and development environment used, you can create all barcode that you need with ease. The REST API allows to automate tasks that need to generate barcodes.

The barcodes are generated on our servers. No plugins or extensions required on the client side. The software installation and maintenance is completely eliminated. Your access-key is not bound to a specifc device or user. So you can use it from as many users or devices as you like. You simply use the API but don't have to setup or maintain anything.
  • Extensive documentation and examples for a versatile range of usage.
  • Monthly subscription that can be canceled any day.
  • The prices for your country and currency will be shown at the order form.
    The valid VAT for your country and the resulting price will be displayed in the order process.
  • 10.000 requests each month.
