Skellefteå, Sweden – 21 March, 2013 – NUITEQ®, the award winning multitouch software developer, announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with local Skellefteå based signage expert Zone Systems.
An interesting collaboration between two successful Skellefteå companies has just started. Two fundamentally very different companies have found each other and see great potential in a partnership. Classic signage supplier Zone Systems, having been active for almost forty years in the industry, starts a cooperation with NUITEQ, which is a young and rapidly developing company and is one of the world leaders in providing interactive multitouch solutions. The first one being a classic engineering company, the other one being a software developer.
But there are similarities and points of synergy. Just over six years ago, Zone started a journey into digital signage, which is an area that only in recent years really started to take off. It is within this area that the synergies are present between both companies. The companies believe that the next big growth area within digital signage will be within interactivity, which is NUITEQ’s home.
“Interactivity becomes increasingly attractive in the market for digital signage. To ensure that Zone Systems continues to be at the forefront of the digital signage industry, we have to be able to offer our customers what they are beginning to ask for. Thats why we have chosen to enter into a partnership with NUITEQ. They are an actor that we believe to be very competent partner and one that is at the forefront of the development in this area.”, says Anders Karlsson, CEO at Zone Systems.
Zone Systems today has its own production in Skellefteå and its offerings include amongst others installation of signage solutions. The company also has its own industrial design department and own construction facilities. This can be complementary to NUITEQ’s business.
“We see many benefits in this cooperation, for both parties. We at NUITEQ offer a future technology that until now, Zone has mainly been prototyping with. Zone brings 40 years of experience in the signage and communication to the table in this collaboration. Plus they have a structure in place for industrial design, engineering, installation and even graphic work, that we do not have at NUITEQ today.”, says Harry van der Veen, CEO of NUITEQ.
Both companies are headquartered in Skellefteå, but have the world as their working grounds. NUITEQ is with its Snowflake platform present in over 60 countries. Zone Systems sign solutions are present in more than 80 countries.
“The company is geographically in close proximity to our facilities, which will obviously streamline our partnership, particularly at the start of the cooperation.” Harry continues.
NUITEQ is an award-winning developer of multitouch software solutions for interactive touch displays. Its product Snowflake Suite, which includes over 35 apps, is globally known for its high level of performance and stability as well as its ease to customize content. NUITEQ customers include Fortune 100 companies, OEMs, system integrators and VARs.
