Global Reach. COLLABORATION Opportunities.

We understand that Independent Software Vendors have specific needs and requirements. Our program is designed to provide you with access to the sales, marketing and technical support that you will need to develop, integrate and promote your solutions in new markets around the globe.

Through Zebra® PartnerConnect, our new integrated partner program, we promote our market-leading products together with innovative software from ISVs to offer customers end-to-end enterprise solutions. There are powerful benefits for you to leverage as an ISV program member that will help you:

Collaborate: We want to stay connected with you through every step of the application development and sales process. Our relationship benefits help you work with us more effectively.

Develop: The program’s technical benefits deliver the technical insight you need to streamline the application development process and build successful applications that meet customers’ needs. 

Some of our Independent Software Vendors develop applications that run on Zebra's devices. We encourage ISVs to take advantage of the opportunity to undergo our Zebra Validated and our Zebra Compatible application testing programs.

ISV Partners: this is our partner program’s mid-level tier for ISVs

Premier ISV Partner: this is our partner program’s highest tier, indicative of an ISV’s progressive commitment to and engagement with us in the marketplace
