Software specialist Proximity has announced an exclusive partnership with fellow global software group Zebra Technologies.
Proximity, which provides software solutions within the logistics, manufacturing and retail sectors including clients such as Argos and Debenhams, will see the partnership allow the business to become a Zebra independent software vendor (ISV) and reseller partner.
The partnership benefits both companies as Proximity will introduce its STREAM logistical app within the Zebra group, but will also be eligible to provide its current customer base Zebra’s full range of software developments.
Dave Pickburn, director at Proximity said: “We are delighted to become part of the Zebra Partner programme. As an ISV and reseller partner, we can not only provide our customers with Zebra’s full range of powerful and innovative products, but also develop and integrate a range of applications that run on Zebra devices.
“Initially, we will be adding STREAM, our multi award-winning delivery and transport management application to Zebra’s portfolio of transportation and logistics apps. We will also be harnessing our extensive experience in manufacturing, retail and warehouse management to add further applications in the near future.”
The STREAM application provides best-in-class functionality for furniture retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers, featuring real-time delivery information to consumers and customer service staff, whilst reducing admin work, as well as minimising time on the road by optimising delivery routes.
