TZA, a technology-enabled company specializing in the optimization of enterprise labor performance and operational effectiveness, announced today that it has been selected by Intermec to join its Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partner program.

TZA will provide integrated solutions for both new and existing customers by combining its ProTrack Enterprise Labor Management Solution with Intermec’s mobile workflow computing solutions. The combination is designed to accelerate workforce productivity improvements and reduce costs across the supply chain, including distribution, manufacturing, point of delivery and more.

“Many ProTrack customers are expanding the use of innovative, mobile technologies to optimize labor productivity across their supply chain,” said Steve Simmerman, senior vice president, business development at TZA. “Integrating ProTrack’s advanced labor management capabilities and Intermec’s leading mobile computing, imaging, printing, software and services solutions is a powerful combination for our customers looking to improve workforce performance, lower cost and streamline work processes.”

”Intermec has a long history of leadership in supply chain mobile computing solutions”, said Andy Stento, Intermec’s senior director of global alliances. “We are excited to add the capability of TZA’s ProTrack to complement our Vocollect voice, imaging applications, and best-in-class rugged mobile computing and printing solutions. The combination of our respective solutions and our mutually consultative approach will significantly improve our customers’ bottom line workforce performance and cost control.”
