2017 flew by, didn’t it?!

So did 27 years in business for Vantage ID Applications.

We are grateful to our longstanding clients, and welcome our new customers. Thank you for trusting Vantage ID Applications for consultative sales, service, and support on all types of labeling technologies and consumables. We are passionate about integrating every component to maximize performance at your unique organization.

Here’s a few 2017 highlights:



Beta! Vantage ID was one of the first testers of Zebra’s new industrial printers. We were psyched to get our hands on these long-awaited babies, especially since we don’t sell ANY new printer without testing it in our own Print Bureau.

Outdated Gone! We helped many of our customers refresh their printers, mobile computers, and scanners with the latest models. Act now while you can still take advantage of many trade-in’s and rebate offers.

Lithium Power! Vantage ID implemented Newcastle Mobile Wireless Carts in warehouses across the county – 236,000 footsteps and oodles of errors saved + no more walking back and forth across the floor.



We did it again! Top 10 TEKLYNX Partner 4 years running. TEKLYNX provides solutions that have helped customers increase printing speed by 15%, reduce label maintenance by 80%, and improve total production efficiency by 50%. TEKLYNX is a barcode and RFID software expert with 650,000 worldwide installations.

The only constant is change! We saw that again in 2017. Changes continued within barcode industry players like: Honeywell-Intermec, Zebra, TSC-Printronix, SATO, Epson, Citizen, Bartender-Seagull Scientific, and Nicelabel.

The End of Windows! Microsoft announced the End of Life for their legacy Windows Mobile OS products including Windows Embedded 6.5 and Windows CE in 2020. These are the most prominent and widely adopted operating systems running on Rugged Enterprise devices today. This is the biggest impact to our industry in the next 18 months.

*Vantage ID Applications is on top of industry and technology changes. Let’s have a conversation to share our insight and what it means to you.



We introduced Brews & Barcodes. 85 attendees from 30 companies got to know barcode experts better, played with new devices, and won prizes.

In a Jam? Vantage ID is an Authorized Service Provider. Three of our technicians got recertified to ensure that we stay up-to-date on the inner workings of the latest barcode products. We are on-hand to deliver fast, local, and authorized service and parts.


Our goal in 2018 is to have a deeper conversation with you about your organization’s unique challenges, goals, and needs. It is our priority to become an integral, trusted, extension of your team. Let’s get to know each other better.
