Founded in 201X (what date do we want to use? RAM date or 2020 for VisiTouch?), VisiTouch is the vision and product of five industry experts led by three founding members. Our goal when we started and one that remains the same is to simplify the flow of non barcoded materials from manufacturer to point of consumption. We have challenged the status quo at every point of our development and have diligently worked to remove and automate steps in the process. Our Team now has over 125 years of experience and we are ready to put it to use for you and your team.
