Socket Mobile, Inc., provider of mobile productivity solutions, has announced a realignment of its US sales force to better service the emerging but rapidly changing mobile phone markets with its cordless barcode scanning products. The company is increasing the number of inside sales personnel available at its Newark, Calif. headquarters to improve response time to customer and developer inquiries with closer ties between sales and the Newark-based engineering and technical support teams. As part of this realignment, the company has downsized its remote sales team and terminated the employment of Chuck Furedy, its vice president of sales.
Kevin Mills, president and CEO, stated: "We've made these changes for two reasons, the primary one is to better service our mobile phone based customers and the changing mobile phone landscape with our cordless barcode scanning products. We believe having our sales team based in Newark adjacent to our strong technical teams is the best way to do this. The change will also result in additional cost savings and efficiencies. On behalf of the Board of Directors and management team, I want to thank Chuck Furedy for his contributions to the company."
