Code Corporation Barcode Readers added to the BlueStar Manufacturer Lineup

Salt Lake City, UT - February 9, 2009 - Code Corporation an industry leader in the design and manufacturing of image-based barcode readers, portable data terminals, and software tools for data collection applications are pleased to announce the signing of a distribution agreement with BlueStar, a premier level distributor.

Code's sophisticated barcode readers help companies improve internal data collection and data exchange with trading partners. Coupling high-definition and multi-resolution optics with flawless Bluetooth® communications systems, Code builds ergonomic, portable units for mobile workers in health care, public safety, technology manufacturing, transportation and many other fields.

"We are excited to add Code to our manufacturer lineup," says Rob Dorsey, BlueStar Vice President of U.S. Sales. "In particular, the addition of Code will further enhance our healthcare offering. Manufacturers like Code, with their proven solutions, are a perfect fit for BlueStar's independent software vendors and value-added resellers."

"To come to this agreement with BlueStar, a premier level distributor, speaks to the potential market opportunity for our product offerings," said George E. Powell, president and CEO of Code Corporation, "Most important to Code is providing outstanding service and support to our partners and end-users. This relationship will allow us to focus on our customers while expanding beyond our already established customer base in existing and new markets."

Code Corporation is known for producing best-in-class applications for reading both linear (1D) and data matrix (2D) barcodes. Products such as the new CR2500 and CR3500 barcode readers use cutting-edge technology to outperform the competition when reading data from curved or shiny surfaces.

"Code offers two barcode scanning products with glare reduction features that are extremely popular in the healthcare industry due to their ability to scan through hard-to-read surfaces such as solution bags and IV medical bags," says Bethany Stanton, BlueStar Business Account Manager. "There are no other scanners in the industry with this feature. These products will be very attractive to BlueStar resellers who are looking for more effective solutions to offer their customers."
