Hello readers, it has been far too long. No, we did not forget about you…we would never do that. We have simply been hard at work making…get ready for this…a new product catalog! Settle down, I know you are excited, and don’t worry your copy should be coming soon; they mailed out on May 7th. So, now that you know the reason for our absence, we can really get started, and I can assure you that a hiatus of that magnitude won’t be taken again.
Yesterday, we had the pleasure of hosting Honeywell for training for our sales team. They brought in lunch from Panera (it was exquisite, and the cookie was amazing), but I am getting off topic. Honeywell went over their new product “road map” for the next six months; it was very cool. There is a lot of new and exciting stuff, from scanners to mobile computers, and even some items that are new to not only the Honeywell portfolio, but fairly new to the industry as a whole. So, be on the lookout! 2012 is going to be a big year for Honeywell.
Next, we went over some trends in the scanning industry, which we were excited about. Our industry is growing across the board, but especially scanning. Being pushed by the adoption of 2D and cordless scanners, barcode scanners are believed to be a strong area of growth in the AIDC (Automatic Identification and Data Capture) arena over the next couple of years with 2D scanners showing the strongest growth rate as 2D barcodes are becoming the “new normal.”
All things said, it was a very good training. We learned a lot, and had the privilege of seeing what is coming out in the future. We also confirmed that our industry is expecting big things from barcode scanners over the next couple of years, especially in 2D.
Well, there you have it folks – the first blog in a long while. As I said earlier, we apologize, and it won’t happen again. In fact, I would expect even more activity than usual. Let me know what you think or if you have any questions. Until next time…
