The Bidvest Group has merged two of its entities – MakeMeMobile and Bartrans – to form Bidvest Mobility.
The new company will retain the same management and staff of the two merged companies. MakeMeMobile’s Andrew Fosbrook and Bartrans’ Simon Grisdale will assume the roles of spearheading this new entity and ensuring a smooth transition.
“Our collective offering comprises a broad range of mobile computers, voice technology as well as barcoding hardware, solutions and services. These will combine with our years of intellectual capital and knowledge of mobile applications and barcoding across the retail, fast-moving consumer goods, transport and logistics, industrial and manufacturing sectors,” Fosbrook, executive of Bidvest Mobility, comments.
Grisdale, Bidvest Mobility’s managing executive, adds: “We enjoy strong direct relationships with leading global hardware providers. This enables us to leverage the best technologies and pricing, as well as combine value-added services with vendor contracts.”
Colin Adendorff, CEO of Bidvest Data, Print and Packaging (part of The Bidvest Group), concludes: “We recognise the importance of barcode and mobile computing solutions across the supply chain as a key driver to accelerate automation and provide real-time valuable data, which will drive down costs and increase efficiencies.”
