Are there specific barcode scanners that Blackbaud supports/recommends?
We do not recommend a specific vendor. The laser printer and bar code reader must be capable of reading a 12 point 3 of 9 bar code font.
There are three types of bar code scanners: Wand, Charged Coupled Device (CCD), and Laser Scanner, which generally has more functionality because of the bar code length and size it can read. Consider your organization's needs and test the different scanners on our printed bar codes to determine which is best for you.
Our system requirements are the primary information source for compatibility information with Blackbaud software. We do not test all third-party products with our software. We consider our access to each product, its usage by our clients, and the most current release when we plan our testing. Information updated after each product's release date is available in Knowledgebase.
