“We are very excited to be offering Motorola Solutions’ IMC products to our reseller partners, as it allows them to provide solutions into vertical markets that were previously not always addressable by their existing mobile computing offering,” said Paul Constantine, president, ScanSource POS and Barcode.  “Our reseller partners can now obtain the complete Motorola Solutions’ enterprise portfolio through one source, while also having access to the value-added services and support they have come to rely on from ScanSource.  Our high level of support and knowledge of Motorola’s solutions, focused Business Development experts, centralized logistics, industry-leading technical support, highly trained sales reps, and partner enablement programs will prove extremely beneficial to resellers looking to be successful with mobility.”

“Motorola Solutions’ Industrial Mobile Computing portfolio bolsters our strategic position in industrial segments such as manufacturing, transportation and logistics,” said Michael Mughetto, MSSSI vice president, North America Distribution for Motorola Solutions. “Expanding the portfolio’s distribution through ScanSource will create new opportunities for partners to enhance their solution offerings and drive business growth.  ScanSource’s value-added service model enables partners to deliver end-to-end mobility solutions to customers in these markets.”
