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 of our respective solutions and our mutually consultative approach will significantly improve our customers’ bottom line workforce performance and cost control.”
