ICS Partners with BlackBerry QNX to Deliver Safety-Critical Products to Medical Device and Industrial IoT Markets with Accelerated Speed to Market

ICS Provides End-to-End Solution with Complete Platform-Level Support
and UX/UI Design and Implementation Services

WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Integrated
Computer Solutions, Inc.
(ICS), creators of embedded and
touch-enabled devices, today announced that it will offer BlackBerry’s
QNX® software and services to its broad embedded customer base in the
Americas. ICS joins the BlackBerry QNX Distributor & Value-Added
Integrator (VAI) Program, a worldwide network of value-added integrators
and distributors, and reseller experts trained on QNX technologies.

Under the agreement, ICS will resell BlackBerry QNX products and
services, including the popular QNX Neutrino RTOS, QNX OS for Safety and
QNX OS for Medical. This, combined with its unparalleled Qt expertise,
will enable ICS to build upon BlackBerry QNX’s embedded technologies,
provide integration services and design, and develop safety critical
solutions for ICS’ customers in the highly regulated medical device and
Industrial IoT markets.

As the largest Qt service and training partner in North America, ICS’
team of engineers and software developers has developed countless modern
user interfaces, connected products and touchscreen-enabled applications
for global companies like Ford, Panasonic, Thermo Fisher Scientific,
ZOLL Medical and Boeing – everything from agriculture equipment,
defibrillators and commercial kitchen appliances to air traffic control
and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. In 2018, ICS launched its
user experience design division, Boston
UX
, which specializes in intuitive interface design for touch- and
voice-powered smart devices. This combination of QNX, Qt and UX design
expertise allows ICS to offer full product development solutions from UX
design and platform selection to software development and delivery.

“Committed to developing high-quality software devices, ICS is pleased
to expand our ability to deliver comprehensive solutions by joining the
BlackBerry QNX Channel Partner Program,” said ICS CEO Peter Winston.
“Our long history of developing software for embedded devices coupled
with our user experience expertise, which we offer through our Boston UX
division, are the perfect complements to BlackBerry QNX’s
high-performance, high-quality operating system technology.” He
concluded, “This partnership will allow us to deliver best-in-class
devices and all the support and services our customers require with ease
and cost-efficiency.”

The Channel Partner Program allows partners to deliver integration
services and build upon BlackBerry QNX’s embedded technologies to design
and develop secure, mission-critical solutions – ultimately accelerating
product time to market.

“ICS is a unique partner as they bring both user experience design
expertise and expansive embedded development experience,” said Kaivan
Karimi, Senior Vice President and Co-Head, BlackBerry Technology
Solutions, BlackBerry. “Because we have partnered successfully for
