Mobile productivity solutions company Socket Mobile celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Since 1992, the company has specialized in building an extensive suite of portable computing, data collection, and remote networking hardware that has helped industries across the globe - including healthcare, hospitality, and retail - meet the demands of an ever-growing mobile workforce - at the same time eliminating manual processes and maximizing efficiency in critical business applications.

Known as Socket Communications at its inception, the company began with a vision of a mobile workforce that could collect, access, and communicate data in any mobile work environment. Since those early days, the company has been at the forefront of mobile technology with milestone achievements like offering the world's first PCMCIA network card, co-inventing the CompactFlash I/O standard, and helping define the standards for Bluetooth and SD I/O.

Socket Mobile's current line of products includes the SoMo handheld computer and the Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner (NYSE:CHS) Series 7 - both recently experiencing surges in demand as businesses look at replacing HP's discontinued iPAQ Pocket PC series with the SoMo, and as multiple CHS Bluetooth barcode scanners for use with smartphones and tablets have recently been certified by Apple. Socket Mobile additionally offers a line of OEM products.

Socket Mobile has a 20-year history of expertise and industry leadership in the Automatic Identification and Data Capture market, making mobile computing and productivity work. The company's suite of handheld computers and vast portfolio of AIDC peripherals are designed specifically for business mobility deployments, enabling productivity increases and driving operational efficiencies for various vertical markets.
