Entermo has designed and marketed a rugged case (EnterMoCase®) for BlackBerry® Smart Phones that enables capture of barcode identification and capture of signatures for use in logistics, chain of custody and courier work.
Grabba CEO Frank Downes stated that this acquisition is a good strategic move for Grabba as it adds a new dimension to the product range offered by Grabba to its global customer base. Downes said that the EnterMoCase rugged hand held units will be welcomed by Grabba Customers throughout the world.Since commencing business in August 2003 Grabba has developed a global market with over 85% of sales being made outside of Australia. All Grabba product is developed and manufactured in Australia and Downes said that in future the EnterMoCase will also be produced in Australia.
EnterMo Ltd Chairman, Richard Revelins said that although the EnterMoCase development has created great interest in markets in Europe and in North America, the costs and challenges of taking such a product to a global market have been high.
