Barcoding Inc. Now Offering Two-Way Radios

Two-Way Radios have been around for a long time and are still being put to use today. These devices along with a radio that can both transmit and receive, were widely nicknamed, "Walkie-Talkie.” As early as the 1940s, Motorola (then the Galvin Manufacturing Company) received a contract from the War Department to develop a portable radio set for field use by infantry units. The SCR-300, a backpack-mounted portable unit became the first two-way radio to be nicknamed "Walkie Talkie." Motorola then went on to produce nearly 50,000 of these famed SCR-300 Walkie-Talkie units during the course of the war.

During that same period, Motorola also produced the hand-held AM SCR-536 radio sets; they were used during World War II.

The two mentioned Motorola Radio Sets that provided short-range, two-way radiotelephone voice communication paved the way to the development of longer-range portable units that followed. Additional mobile and base station radios by Motorola have been developed.

Now, new two-way radios are being offered by Barcoding Inc., which is dedicated to delivering the latest in two-way business radios to support clients’ communication needs.

Specifically, the company will serve as a value-added reseller of Motorola Solutions and Vertex Standard two-way radio technology, both global two-way radio manufacturers which supply products that meet the changing demands of the wireless communications market.

Jeff Gillis, CFO at Barcoding said, “As a systems integrator, we saw that many of our customers were already using two-way radios to communicate within the four walls”; therefore, it made sense, he said, to expand their portfolio to include two-way radios.

Customers would purchase one of the latest two-way radio communication devices from the reseller (Barcoding) as an integrated product or complete "turn-key" solution to be used in settings such as a warehouse environment to relay information between personnel on the loading dock to workers in the stockroom, or in retail settings to connect cashiers with salespeople on the store floor.
