I understand you can be disappointed but you should keep in mind:
- GdPicture products are edited by a French company: ORPALIS.
- This company have talented employees who must be paid.
- Building a stable barcode reader such as our one required more than 2 year of research & development of 1 specialized engineer.
- The price of the plugin you are talking about is less than 1 day of a 5 year experiences engineer in Europe.
- The plugin is royalty free, you can redistribute it on any server ans on any application for free.
- GdPicture.NET is also fully royalty free, full featured (see our matrix) and updates are free and frequent (see our update history).
- Our activity is 100% research & development to improve performance & features of our software every day.
Basically, our company has charges and we need to sell our services to cover them.
Do not misinterpret my comments. I think your product is excellent and very fairly priced. I purchased it within minutes of checking out that it met my needs. My concern is the trend it begins. Will every new feature now come with a separate additional price? I do not mind paying for new features. I need to eat and I enjoy living indoors as well!!! Why not have a subscription option that gets you everything for an annually renewed fee? Call me crazy but I would rather paid $1300 once then $800 and $500.
Thank you for the feedback.
No, we don't want to come all new features with extra cost or extra licensing. For the barcode reader it was a necessity because we spent of lot of money to get it, and we will spend a lot of money to maintain it.
Today, we have only 2 optional plugins OCR & barcode reader. And always on a 100% royalty free basis. As you can see, we just introduced 2 new major features for free in GdPicture.NET: around 30 RAW format support, & around 30 barcode writing support. All for free for existing customers. Have a look on our releases history, you can see that a lot of new features are added frequently, for free. viewforum.php?f=11
And welcome here, feel free to post any technical issue or feature request (more than 80% of our customer feature requests are considered - for free, within a month).
I needed this feature urgently, so I had to purchase these from another manufacturer. Anyone who has set a longer deal with barcode recognition, knows a good detection appreciated and is willing to pay for it. I think the price is reasonable.
@Loïc: You can send me the promised 50 € to my bank account.
If you have a license of a GdPicture Toolkit (ActiveX or .NET) + a license of a barcode reader from another manufacturer: We offer for free a license of our Barcode Recognition Plugin in exchange of a proof of payment
We are working on an announcement on a new blog we will publish soon...
The email is esales(at)gdpicture(dot)com
We need GdPicture serial + proof of competitor barcode reader.
I suppose you have the mail into your spam box. Else, try to contact us with a different email address.
Does a purchase of the GdPicture.NET Document Imaging SDK Ultimate license include licenses for the Bar Code plugins as well as the OCR plug in? The feature-comparison-matrix http://www.gdpicture.com/comparison/dot ... matrix.php leads me to believe so.
I am only asking because the link in the header of the matrix for the ultimate package lists the OCR feature with this text, "Perform OCR on a full page, or on an area of a page, using the optional GdPicture Tesseract Plugin."
In short, does the ultimate package include the plugins with no extra cost?
