Mobile data solutions specialist Codegate has acquired i2 Mobile Solutions Ltd (i2MS).
The move increases Codegates turnover to over 5million, making it one of the largest mobile solution providers in the UK. i2MS will be rebranded as Codegate and integrated into its Steventon, Oxfordshire premises with immediate effect.
Commenting on the announcement, Terran Churcher, Codegates Managing Director said We are delighted with the acquisition of i2MS. The move will enable Codegate to extend its mobile solution offering into the warehouse and retail space, leveraging i2MSs existing mobile and data capture successes with companies like River Island, Wyevale Garden Centres, Majestic Wine Warehouse, Halfords and Cannon Group.
