rf IDEAS Wins the 2021 HP Partner Award for Partner Agility

SCHAUMBURG, Ill.--()--rf IDEAS, a leading manufacturer of credential readers for authentication and logical access, is proud to announce that it is the recipient of the 2021 HP Partner Award for Partner Agility.

Presented at the virtually held HP Developer Partner Conference 2021, this award recognizes rf IDEAS for its role in helping HP land a successful worldwide deployment deal, featuring readers with Bluetooth® Low Energy technology, for its development agility, and for managing the changes and challenges over the past year. “This award represents the great relationship we have built with HP,” said David Cottingham, president of rf IDEAS. “We were able to take secure authentication to the next level by deploying a solution that combines mobile credentials and secure physical employee badges. Through a difficult year, we have been able to execute on tough delivery timelines and offer continued support to HP and their customers long after the product leaves our warehouse.”

For the last 13 years, rf IDEAS and HP partnered together to provide leading authentication technology for HP’s Secure Print solutions for many top enterprise companies in multiple verticals around the world. During this time, rf IDEAS has built a robust supply chain to support HP in multiple routes to market such as direct MPS or indirect channel through worldwide distributors.

“The pandemic caused many new technical and logistical hurdles to overcome to deliver a highly complex and customized solution. Being able to adapt to an ever-changing environment in a positive, productive way requires real partnership, flexibility and a commitment to win,” said Paul Birkett, leader of HP’s Commercial Software Solutions for its print business. “rf IDEAS responsiveness to HP’s rapidly evolving customer needs is what made them stand out. rf IDEAS was instrumental in our work with this critical customer, and without the work of this partner, we would not have won a global multimillion-dollar Managed Print Services Deal.”

This is the fifth time HP has awarded to rf IDEAS for various achievements including Customer Focus in 2020, Partner Sales Excellence in 2017, Partner Collaboration in Excellence in 2016 and Partner in Excellence in 2014.
