Yonkers, NY  September 1, 2015CYBRA Corporation, the industry leader in server printing software and the developer of award-winning MarkMagic™ Bar Code Labels, RFID Tags, and Electronic Forms Software and  Edgefinity IoT® Integrated RFID Platform Software, has announced the availability of MarkMagic 9, and MarkMagic 9.1 PI, brand new Platform Independent versions of the popular IBM Power System i software that extends MarkMagic to Microsoft  Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and AIX users.

Since the debut of MarkMagic V1.0 in 1990, CYBRA has steadily updated and upgraded the product based on customer requests and feedback.

“Overall, it’s been a successful strategy for CYBRA,” says CYBRA’s VP of Operations, Chuck Roskow, who has managed many of the recent MarkMagic version updates. “The strategy has always been about improving the product with features and capabilities that customers are looking for. Instead of following trends, we try to go the extra mile for our customers. They’re always pleasantly surprised when we tell them that they can now do that task they’ve asked us about in the past.”

MarkMagic 9 builds on the success of previous versions, and adds impressive new features that let users gain even more control of their labels, forms, RFID tags, and ad hoc reports.

“This is the best version of MarkMagic we’ve ever made”, said CYBRA CEO, Harold Brand. “We’re always excited when we release new enhancements. MarkMagic 9 has an array of new features we’re confident that customers will want to try out.”

MarkMagic 9 features new capabilities that enhance the ability to design complex bar code labels, RFID tags, forms and reports while virtually reducing the programming burden to zero. Enhanced printer control, more powerful edit codes, new utilities, and even a new rules engine for the popular PrintTransformer Add On Option add up to empower users to produce super-complex labels, RFID tags, forms and reports.

MarkMagic separates itself from other printing software by offering users a simple unified interface that allows even non-programmers to learn and use just one product to create complex documents on more than 450 printer device types.

MarkMagic is currently used by over 2,600 customers worldwide, including major apparel brands, consumer goods manufacturers, pharmaceutical suppliers, and a number of retail chains and e-commerce websites.

MarkMagic 9 is available for a 30-day free trial on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, AIX, Linux, and IBM Power Systems i platforms.
