  • Unitech Showcases Barcode Scanners at BlueStar's VARTECH '13

    ‧EN - North America


    Earlier this month, Unitech was proud to showcase its value line of barcode scanners at VARTECH, BlueStar’s popular trade show for vendors and resellers of POS, AIDC, mobility, and RFID technologies. This time Unitech traveled to San Antonio, Texas September 9-11 for another round of exciting exhibitions, networking opportunities, and workshop sessions with industry experts.

    VARTECH ‘13 expanded its focus to include Latin American technology solutions. Unitech America enjoyed working with the Latin America team—taking this opportunity to learn more about the region’s unique business culture and perspectives.

    Another highlight was the Q & A session with BlueStar executives, a forum where Unitech was able to join a larger discussion on the future of the market.

    Unitech’s line of small barcode scanners was particularly popular this year, especially the new MS920 2D Pocket Scanner, a compact barcode scanner perfectly suited for those on the go.  A compact handheld scanner such as Unitech’s MS920 is easily integrated into field service, supply chains, and retail applications. Unitech’s line of RF barcode scanners was also well received at the show. Unitech’s MS840 is an RF scanner, a low-cost alternative to Bluetooth. The MS840 RF Cordless (1D and 2D) facilitates a variety of tasks, from speeding up checkout to maintaining accurate inventory.

    Outside of the venue itself, Unitech history buffs gained the opportunity to learn more about the Mexican-American War of 1846, the Texas revolution, and Spanish missions during a visit to The Alamo. Did you know five countries have occupied The Alamo since its origin as the San Antonio de Valero Mission? San Antonio proved to be an engaging location, with the bustling River Walk public park and delicious Tex-Mex dining as memorable highlights.

    BlueStar-produced VARTECH’s have been operating for over a decade in various locations including Miami, Florida; Toronto, Canada; and aboard a Bahamas cruise ship. VARTECH presents a unique opportunity to foster healthy relationships throughout the channel, and Unitech was excited to exhibit alongside other vendors at this event.
