Adrian Thomas — President and CEO

As the President of Datascan, Adrian believes the vision for the Company is, “To provide retailers with the greatest value from their inventory process. This means transforming raw inventory data into meaningful, manageable inventory information that can be used to improve how a retailer conducts its business.” The collection of data that traditionally has a very short shelf-life, he says, needs now to be leveraged much more effectively to add value to a retailers investment in the process. “Datascan is on a quest”, Adrian says, “to take the value of the inventory process to a whole new level through utilizing the latest in Self-Scanning.”

Adrian has a long history of helping build successful businesses into leaders within their industries. With over 20 years of experience in the application of wireless and barcode data-collection technologies he is no stranger to the challenges of the retail inventory market.

Prior to Datascan, Adrian was SVP of Fujitsu Frontech Retail Solutions responsible for Point of Sale and Self Check-out solutions. With previous experiences as CEO of ICS Inc., a specialist in Mobile supply chain solutions and of PEAK Technologies, the leading bar-code systems integrator, he has a deep appreciation of the impact of mobile technology in an enterprise environment.

Using mobile technology to improve the flow of business has been an important part of Adrian’s focus and he and the Datascan team are enthusiastic about the mobile revolution that is taking place in retail.

Adrian and his wife have happily relocated to the Dallas area, and when not at work enjoys listening to his eclectic collection of music, adding to his wine cellar and keeping in touch with his family in the UK.
