Azalea adds barcoding capabilities to Crystal Reports

Seattle-based Azalea Software Inc. is putting its barcode printing tools into Business Objects SA’s Crystal Reports 2008.

Azalea said it partnered with the Paris-based business intelligence (BI) software maker to allow its customers the benefits of seamless barcode printing within Crystal Reports. The company said its barcode software will now let Crystal Reports users create popular barcode types such as UPC, Code 128, Code 39, and POSTNET barcodes with one click.

While Azalea has put its barcode software into previous incarnations of Crystal Reports, this latest partnership has expanded the barcode types available to users.
