Wasp Barcode Technologies Named a Tech Innovator by UBM Channel's CRN for 2012

(Plano, Texas, October 31, 2012) – Wasp Barcode Technologies, manufacturer of barcode software and solutions, announced today that it was named a winner in the handheld category at CRN's 9th annual Tech Innovator awards ceremony. The Tech Innovator Awards recognizes technology companies that have used original methods or technologies to deliver new, innovative products and partner support.

CRN Test Center Editors reviewed hundreds of technology products deployed over the past year to determine which vendors broke away from traditional thinking to create completely new and unique channel opportunities. Companies on this year's list recently implemented innovative methods to bridge the gap between current problems and solutions facing channel executives today.

Wasp Barcode Technologies was named winner in the categories of handhelds for its WWSS100i wireless pocket barcode scanner. The WWS100i easily fits into a shirt pocket and offers users cordless operability to a PC or via an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or similar mobile device. A smartphone or tablet PC can be used to remotely and securely update or monitor inventory and asset items almost anywhere.

"We're very excited to have Wasp's WWSS100i wireless pocket barcode scanner recognized as an innovative technology that assists in enhanced user productivity and improved profitability. Our mission is to help small businesses refine their processes, and we believe the WWSS100i is only one of the many technologies we create that will help an array of industry professionals," Said Brian Sutter, Director of Marketing.
