Datalogic, a market leader and total solutions provider of bar code readers, mobile computers, RFID and vision systems, primes its global business engine with the integration of Datalogic Scanning, Datalogic Mobile, Enterprise Business Solutions and Evolution Robotics Retail to form the new Datalogic ADC (Automatic Data Capture) division.

This significant business development move capitalizes on major investments made so far by the Datalogic Group in the Automatic Data Capture market and confirms the company’s leadership position for innovation and service. These four entities combine forces to respond to market needs for products and solutions that ensure quality, flexibility, efficiency and the highest possible level of customer satisfaction.

Bill Parnell, formerly CEO of Datalogic Scanning and Datalogic Mobile, now leads the new division as CEO of Datalogic ADC. “This business realignment integrating leading practices across four great businesses gives us ‘one face to the customer’ and makes Datalogic the only industry player with a complete product and solution portfolio that satisfies all the customer’s requirements for ADC applications,” he commented.

Datalogic Group CEO, Mauro Sacchetto said: “This decision plays a major role in the Datalogic Group’s growth strategy. The new Datalogic ADC division maximizes our focus on Automatic Data Capture, allowing the customers to have one reference point for the most complete range of solutions in the market. This significantly boosts our competitiveness and is a winning factor for large homogeneous markets such as retail, manufacturing, and transportation & logistics.”

The demand for a cohesive approach towards ADC application solutions in these markets increases steadily day by day. In emerging countries where the market for automation and intelligent systems expands at a rapid pace, flexibility and mobility are also key driving factors. The integration will allow Datalogic to leverage its knowledge and expertise across industries, creating a highvalue proposition for its customers.

An example is in the retail industry, where all four of the newly integrated Datalogic businesses hold leadership positions. Now, retail customers can rely on one business division to satisfy all their application needs thanks to the comprehensive product portfolio ranging from hand-held and fixed retail scanners to mobile computers and integrated business solutions.
