Business Model Flexibility
If your company develops applications that run on Zebra devices and you sell Zebra products, you can participate in PartnerConnect as both an ISV partner and a reseller—and take advantage of the wide-ranging benefits available in both tracks.
Three Tiers Reward Achievement
The ISV Track includes three tiers: Registered ISV, ISV Partner and Premier ISV Partner. As you expand your Zebra relationship, you can move to a higher tier and access benefits such as increased marketing support, closer collaboration with Zebra and access to additional demo/development kits.
Zebra Developer Portal
Available to all developers—participation in PartnerConnect not required—the Zebra Developer Portal features tools, utilities, developer kits, blogs, code samples, community forums and more to support application development on multiple platforms.
