RSS .NET Control

RSS (Reduced Space Symbology) and Composite Symbology are the latest barcode types for space-constrained identification from EAN International and the Uniform Code Council, Inc. RSS barcodes have been identified to solve problems in the grocery industry and in healthcare where items are too small to allow for older barcode symbologies. For more information about the RSS and Composite Symbology, please visit:

File Replicator Backup Utility

IDAutomation File Replicator is a directory mirroring, file synchronization and backup utility that synchronizes data files in different directories (replicas) on Windows PCs and servers. This allows multiple files to be accessed and modified on any system with a replica. The modified files are then transferred to the other PCs bi-directionally when they are replicated. This utility also keeps a complete history of all updated files and creates backup copies of any files that are deleted or moved.

Sunrise 2005 Compliance

Since the introduction of the 12-digit Universal Product Code (U.P.C.) more than 30 years ago, the use of the EAN.UCC System has expanded rapidly to facilitate global commerce. To meet the need for improving commerce efficiency, the Uniform Code Council, Inc. (UCC) has announced that by January 1, 2005 all U.S. and Canadian companies must be capable of scanning and processing EAN-8 and EAN-13 symbols, in addition to 12-digit U.P.C. symbols, at point-of-sale. The UCC announced this initiative, named 2005 Sunrise, in 1997 to allow U.S. and Canadian companies ample time to address all conversion issues.  For the complete Executive Summary from the Uniform Code Council, Inc., please visit here.
