Life IT will resell CYBRA's product suite and integrate bar code and RFID technology for supply chain and warehouse management customers across the UK, Finland, Sweden, Holland and Germany. The IT supplier firm recently purchased PSS (Professional Software Solutions), a software distributor for IBM Mid-Range systems, in an effort to grow its customer base and expand its range of services. Life IT specializes in IBM business software for companies with 100 to 10,000 employees, and offers software solutions for all computing environments, with a special emphasis on the IBM System i, iSeries and AS/400 platforms.

Their IBM Premier Business Partner status makes them particularly qualified to distribute MarkMagic and EdgeMagic software.
"We are excited to have Life IT join us as an international MarkMagic distributor," says Harold Brand, CYBRA's President. "We believe their strong presence in Europe, along with their deep understanding of the iSeries platform and their proven integration expertise will open up many new opportunities to expand the use of CYBRA's products in Europe and the UK."
"The acquisition means we will be able to offer everything a customer needs to implement identity technology including bar code scanners, RFID readers, printers, and bar code labels for a wide range of applications such as asset tracking, stock control, compliance, and time and attendance," explains Jill Sherratt, chief executive, Life IT.
