BALTIMORE – Barcoding, Inc. named Mirabito its 2017 Innovator of the Year. Presented annually by Barcoding at its Executive Forum, this award recognizes a team within a company who has implemented a mobile or automated data capture solution that has greatly impacted the business’s efficiency, accuracy, and connectivity.

Mirabito is a full-service energy provider that has been serving families and businesses throughout upstate New York, Western Massachusetts and Connecticut since its founding in 1927. In addition, Mirabito operates 108 retail convenience store locations and a fleet of 95 retail fuel delivery vehicles.

Eric Bunts, Mirabito’s chief information officer said, “We are honoured to be named Barcoding’s 2017 Innovator of the Year. More importantly, we are happy to have Barcoding as a partner as we move forward and develop innovative solutions to tackle the future’s next challenge.”

Working with Verizon Wireless and Barcoding, the company was able to reduce connection loss by equipping its stores with a new secondary network. Installing the Cradlepoint AER1600 series Routers and NetCloud Enterprise Cloud Manager has allowed its stores to remain connected to their entire supply chain at all times and to offer their customers a superior level of customer service.

Mirabito took a similar approach in bringing connectivity to their delivery fleet. The company installed an in-vehicle solution that enables drivers to capture and transmit data to the main office in real time—streamlining delivery and billing processes.

Jay Steinmetz, CEO, Barcoding, says, “We are pleased to honour Mirabito as our 2017 Innovator of the Year. By recognizing and addressing the connectivity needs of their convenience stores and delivery fleet with innovative solutions and devices, Mirabito has effectively heightened productivity, increased overall revenue, and enhanced the experience of their employees and customers – a truly remarkable feat. We are excited to see what new ideas and innovations they have in store in future.”
