Varlink Managing Director Mike Pullon said, "We have worked hard to find an established manufacturer capable of providing us with reliable and well specified products backed by the commercial understanding and flexibility required to enable us to establish their brand in the United Kingdom. After long and detailed discussions I am delighted that we have entered into an agreement with DataVan that will see us distribute their EPoS terminals to retail solution providers in the UK and Ireland." Head of DataVan Jarry Ku said, "As the demand for our state-of-the-art products increases it is vital we partner with an experienced local distributor in Varlink. After thorough discussions with Varlink we are sure they will be the perfect distribution partner in UK and Ireland. We look forward to working with Varlink and our goal is to bring a great product selection with future-proof technologies that exceed customers' expectations." The DataVan EPoS terminals will be available with 38cm resistive touch or true-flat glass projective capacitive touch screens and with a range of Intel processors to suit an array of technical and budget requirements.

United Kingdom: mobile computing and data capture specialist Varlink has created a useful resource for resellers interested in the manufacturing industry. From the warehouse to the production line, mobile computing and data capture devices play an important role in collecting the vital data needed to ensure the efficiency of a manufacturing plant. By ensuring data is collected accurately, errors are minimised and unnecessary costs are avoided. The twelve-page brochure aims to be an educational tool, providing resellers with information about the key features and benefits of the hardware Varlink has to offer, applied in the main manufacturing areas, warehousing, production line and logistics. Varlink's range of industrial products are suitable for the constant demands of a factory floor or busy warehouse, devices include IP rated handhelds, vehicle mounted computers, printers and scanners. As well as hardware, this brochure offers application software and mobile device management that can easily be integrated on to a handheld device or printer. As a value add, Varlink's customers can get a rebrand of this brochure electronically free of charge, to use as their own sales and educational tool to send to their customers.
United Kingdom: POS specialist Varlink has completed the integration of its EPoS sales division, EPoS Distributor. This process has resulted in significant benefits for retail system supplying resellers who can now access the full product portfolio including EPOS terminals, receipt printers, touchscreens, cash drawers and other EPOS peripherals online alongside Varlink's comprehensive mobile computing and data capture product set which also encompasses brands Honeywell, Casio, Datalogic and Zebra Technologies. Mike Pullon, Varlink CEO, commented "When the EPoS Distribution division was established there was a clear separation between the products purchased by EPoS specialists and those taken by our established Varlink customer base. Over time, whilst there remains some fundamental differences, there are many product sets that are of interest to both segments of our customer base. We have therefore moved from two websites to a single Varlink branded site which carries all mobile computing, label printing, data capture, networking and EPoS brands. Whilst we are retiring the EPoS Distributor brand, our three EPoS sales team members will continue to work, exclusively, with our retail focussed customers." Since the establishment of EPoS Distributor in 2009, it operated as a separate brand entity focusing on the trade supply of EPoS hardware to the hospitality and retail sector, internally however, it has always shared technical, despatch, finance and marketing resources with Varlink. All customers, regardless of their size, will continue to have the same dedicated sales contact ensuring a seamless integration with no detrimental effects to pre or post sales customer support. For the first time, the full EPoS Distributor range of products will be available to order online allowing resellers to view real-time stock levels and individual buy prices. Not only this, but Varlink's feature rich e-commerce website enables customers to manage their entire account online 24/7, with the ability to view quotes raised by their dedicated sales contact, raise quotes, place orders, check proof of delivery and order status, view invoices, and raise RMAs fuss free. While the brand integration strengthens Varlink's company image and provides the best use of company resources, it also provides resellers with the choice needed as technology trends around tablets and mobility within the workplace continue to grow. Resellers can source everything from semi-rugged to ultra-rugged tablets, handheld terminals, Smartphones, barcode label printers, card printers, associated printer consumables, barcode scanners, EPOS terminals and peripherals from one local distributor. In addition to UK warehousing facilities, which enable next business day delivery as standard on in stock items, Varlink work closely with their customers providing pipeline management, credit facilities, technical services including configuration support, and free of charge marketing services fulfilled by an in house marketing team.
