Phoenix, Arizona, August 5, 2015 – Vertical Systems Reseller (VSR) Magazine awards AB&R® with 2015 Innovative Solution of the Year.

The Innovative Solution Awards were established by VSR and RSPA to honor solution providers that have blended multiple technologies to create an outstanding and future-forward solution. Winners for this award must have effectively solved the end-user’s problem by implementing a solution that was of their own technical research and development. The solution must have met or exceeded the end-user’s ROI and provided significant impact on the end-user’s strategic, customer, financial, operational, or security goals.

AB&R’s® award winning solution, LabelSmart, allows a company to create labels on-demand, as needed with variable data. Users can scan and print using wireless or Bluetooth and consumer-grade tablets and small printers. A hosted web interface is used to manage the data for the labels and monitor any necessary updates. LabelSmart is currently in use for a large food organization with franchises in approximately 3,000 grocery locations throughout North America. This turnkey solution is a fully managed service developed, delivered, and supported by AB&R®.

“The LabelSmart Solution involves different technology components”, says Mike Stryzcek, CEO. “Our Team was up for the challenge and with the help of strategic partners we were able to implement a complex, managed service solution that not only exceeded our clients’ expectations, but is forward-thinking for similar applications across all industries looking for this on-demand mobile printing solution.”

The Innovative Solution Award recipients were honored on stage at the RSPA’s Award Banquet during the RetailNOW 2015, in Orlando, FL. Editorial coverage can be found in the VSR Magazine September Issue and RSPA’s Connect Magazine and online at
