A buyer would see a 160% return on investment in the first year at this national barcode systems company!  Their services include system solutions & integration, equipment maintenance, and fulfillment services.  Offering consultation and system/product integration, clients are a mix of resellers (55%) and end-users (45%). The bulk of their sales (60-65%) consists of Media/Consumables (labels, thermal transfer ribbons, thermal tags, warehouse signs); they also sell Software (asset tracking, barcode label printing, inventory control/WMS software), and Hardware (barcode scanners, label printers, receipt printers, etc.). Employees include one owner, who assists with order processing, accounting, and general oversight, one Office/Marketing Manager who handles sales, places orders, and manages the website & online marketing development, along with 1 East Coast Sales Manager based out of a home office in Georgia, one PT office assistant, and one subcontractor as needed based in Chicago.

Small businesses all the way up to large retail chains need these services to keep up with ever-evolving technology while maintaining profitability and keeping costs low.
