IDBLUE And Zebra Enterprise Solutions Partnership Provides Tailored Solutions To Customers

Zebra Enterprise Solutions (ZES), a division of Zebra Technologies, recently announced the addition of technology solutions provider IDBLUE to the company's partner program. The new partnership allows IDBLUE to leverage technology from ZES to expand its offering of customized solutions in the oil and gas industry.

IDBLUE, a leader in mobile RFID solutions, joined the ZES partner program to increase its internal capabilities. The company has been able to integrate new active Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technologies into its solutions, expanding its ability to develop tailored solutions for IDBLUE's customers in-house.

"By partnering with ZES, we can expand our reach into more industries by utilizing the broader range of identification technologies now available to us," said Steve Taylor, CEO of IDBLUE. "We are excited to be able to engage Zebra on new projects in the future and leverage our partnership to provide new solutions to our clients."

IDBLUE is currently working in partnership with ZES on a project with a local logistics firm in Canada and has been engaging them to provide solutions to a variety of customers in the oil and gas industry.

"As we expand our consulting services, we wanted to partner with an established solution provider that we knew we could count on," said Jeff Brown, vice president of services at IDBLUE. "After considering several solution providers, IDBLUE determined that the ZES' suite of technology provided the best options for our customers."

"The selection of technology that IDBLUE now has at its fingertips will support the company's endeavors to expand its offerings into other sectors as well as help to grow its consulting practice into other verticals," said Bill Bulzoni, Director of Business Development for Zebra Enterprise Solutions. "IDBLUE will be a great addition to the ZES partner program."
