About Zetes

Zetes South Africa is part of the leading pan-European company that provides value added solutions and services based on the automatic identification of Goods and People (Goods ID and People ID).

By utilising automatic identification technologies in an intelligent way, Zetes links goods and people to new and existing IT systems. The result for its customers is seamless information exchange, with data captured at every stage of the process and made available in real time. Zetes' solutions provide companies, public institutions and governments with the desired control over their floor and field operations, which allow them to optimise overall performance, improve their bottom line and face the most demanding traceability challenges.

Zetes uses both emerging and mature technologies (barcode, voice recognition, RFID, smartcards, biometrics), and develops focussed solutions to optimise the business performance of many customers through the supply chain across many market segments: manufacturing, transportation, logistics, retail, healthcare, finance, telecommunication, government and public services.

In September 2012, Zetes SA consolidated its three operations, namely Zetes, Zetes Media and iData Distribution, into one strong entity, enabling customers to have access to industry-leading supply chain solutions from a single source. At this time, Zetes' distribution business was also integrated into the business.

The Zetes Group has its headquarters in Belgium and employs more than 1000 people across 16 countries in EMEA. Zetes aspires to achieve sustainable profits and growth; its consolidated revenues for 2011 amounted to €220.6 million.

Zetes' head office in South Africa is situated in Bedfordview, Johannesburg, with regional offices in Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.
