PRESS RELEASE: The Barcode Warehouse Bucks Recession By Expanding Operations to Republic of Ireland

Newark, Notts, UK: 1st February, 2010: The Barcode Warehouse, one of the UK’s leading enterprise mobility solutions providers, today announced that it has opened a new office in Limerick, Ireland

“Despite the tough global economic climate, The Barcode Warehouse’s auto ID and enterprise mobility solution revenue has grown by 25% in 2009.  A proportion of this revenue came from the Irish marketplace and we are looking forward to the opportunity of increasing this,” explained Clive Fearn, The Barcode Warehouse’s Sales & Marketing Director.  “This year promises to be a very exciting time for The Barcode Warehouse.  The expansion of our business operations outside of the UK is key to helping us to achieve our goal of becoming the largest enterprise mobility solutions provider in Europe by 2013.”

The Barcode Warehouse has appointed Barry Long as Irish Sales Manager - Having worked in the auto-ID and enterprise mobility market for the last six years, Long has extensive experience of the requirements of Irish users. 

“The Irish marketplace is crying out for an enterprise mobility solution provider that can deliver all of the complex hardware and software elements as a simple integrated solution,” said Long.  “The Barcode Warehouse’s considerable expertise makes it the perfect partner for organisations putting a toe in the auto ID and mobility space, or those who need to upgrade their existing solutions.”

The Barcode Warehouse has a significant existing Irish customer base across a range of sectors including: pharmaceutical, retail supply chain, and food manufacturing and is looking to extend this to other business sectors.  Its focus on offering price competitive, fully featured solutions regardless of the number of users makes it ideal for Irish organisations with typically smaller deployments. 

“As the requirement for auto ID and enterprise mobility solutions grows, there is no doubt that end users are increasingly looking for a single provider that can not only supply the hardware and software but can also deliver managed services to support their deployments after roll out.  It is crucial that once implementations go live the risk of downtime is minimised,” added Fearn. 

The Barcode Warehouse is able to meet this increasing end user requirement through the provision of hardware, software and a comprehensive managed service which includes: device staging and configuration, deployment, remote device management, hot swapping, repair and helpdesk support.

“We are looking forward to raising the bar for the supply of enterprise mobility solutions and managed services within Ireland,” concluded Fearn.
