With new rules and regulations to learn, new compliance requirements to adhere to, and new customers and business partners to onboard, navigating the complexities of the global market can be difficult for any company. To fully leverage their global supply chains, firms need a robust, global transportation management system that helps them navigate this ever-changing environment.
Barcoding, Inc., a leader in enterprise-wide mobility solutions, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Miles Technologies, in order to increase its presence in the central region of the United States and expand its radio frequency identification (RFID) capabilities.
Based in Lake Zurich, Ill., with two office locations in the greater Chicago market and one in St. Louis, Miles Technologies is a provider of barcode and RFID equipment and a developer of software applications for warehouse management and asset tracking.
As a result of this acquisition, Barcoding will strengthen its portfolio of RFID and auto-identification technologies by offering the full breadth of Miles Technologies’ solutions. By increasing its presence in the Central United States, Barcoding can better service and support enterprise customers from its Chicago office, as well as uncover new business opportunities in the Central and Western United States.
For Miles Technologies, current clients now have access to a larger “Go Live” and “Continuing Care” support network with Barcoding’s Professional Services Group. Additionally, Miles Technologies’ customers can obtain new mobile capabilities, as Barcoding’s solutions extend warehouse technologies beyond the four walls, including fleet and delivery management and custom software solutions.
Shane Snyder, president, Barcoding, Inc., said, “As Barcoding celebrates our 15th anniversary this year, it is clear that we are well on our way to achieving our vision of national expansion and growth. Because of Miles Technologies’ excellent industry reputation and expertise in RFID technology, we decided that working together would better accommodate our enterprise customers while providing us with a stronger presence in the Chicago area and beyond.”
The Miles Technologies’ Addison, Ill., location features a state-of-the-art Technology Integration Center. This 7,500 square-foot facility is designed to give companies the ability to understand and compare RFID, voice picking, wireless, and barcode applications to determine which solution will best solve their business problems. In addition, 15 Miles Technologies employees will become part of the Barcoding team.
Tom Beusch, president, Miles Technologies, Inc., said, “Barcoding, Inc., has long been a reputable solutions provider and integrator with similar technological capabilities as Miles Technologies, making this acquisition a fitting opportunity for both companies. Our current customers will have access to a wider range of warehouse management and supply chain solutions, and will receive the benefit of having a larger team of support personnel behind them to ensure that every implementation is a success.”
