An expanding Hampshire tech firm whose solutions already underpin billions of pounds’ worth of global trade has teamed up with a retail Paper to Digital specialist to bring the benefits of barcode technology to more business clients. 

Managers at Portsmouth-based Transalis say their partnership with i-Stocktake will offer fresh solutions for processing stock, product, order, delivery, sales and other essential transactions.

As well as retailers, the move is expected to benefit manufacturers, distributors and logistics firms across a range of sectors here and overseas. 

Headquartered in Reigate, Surrey, i-Stocktake specialises in smart mobile scanning devices and software.

Roy Garlick, Transalis Global Channel Manager, said:

“We work closely with our partners to transform the ways organisations large and small communicate and transact business with their suppliers and customers.

“Thanks to our new partnership with i-Stocktake, we can offer clients in all sectors the added benefits of barcode technology and smart devices. These include major efficiencies in, and simplification of, many business management processes.”

i-Stocktake’s Managing Director Mike McNiven said:

“By having ready access to our capabilities in retail Paper to Digital, Transalis clients will enjoy an all-in-one, streamlined solution to support their growth and development.”     

Transalis employs 27 staff at the innovation hub Portsmouth Technopole and provides cloud-based applications in electronic data interchange, or EDI, to more than 10,000 business users across 32 countries.
