History, Vision & Mission



Bar Code Systems Limited was founded in 1982 by Brian Marcel, a pioneer of bar code technology applications back when bar code technology was emerging as a new and revolutionary way of making retail commerce faster and more accurate. BCS became an early leader in the deployment of bar code systems to retailers and their suppliers and was instrumental in extending the use of automatic identification systems into many other vertical industries such as blood-banking, pharmaceuticals, transportation and logistics, automotive and manufacturing.

Over the years BCS has built upon, but retained, its core principles of making bar code technology easy for newcomers to understand; of educating customers in the best practices of applying bar coding to their business and ensuring that the quality of bar codes is paramount to ensure that the investment in the technology is maximised.

In 1990, Brian founded the International Bar Code Systems Group, to extend the spread of bar code technology and the core approach of BCS UK to the emerging markets in Eastern and Central Europe.  

IBCS Group is now the premier Applications Solutions Integrator in the Enterprise Mobility market in Middle Europe. Throughout Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia the IBCS Group is providing end-to-end solutions to increase performance, efficiency and productivity within the enterprise, reduce costs and realize competitive advantages for its customers.
