"In today's economy, our customers are demanding that we implement advanced and long-lasting technology solutions.

Additionally, Psion Teklogix's online open innovation community, Ingenuity Working, brings together customers, partners and developers to co-create mobile hardware, software and services. Fostering its dedication to openness, Psion Teklogix's online community offers a network environment for partners who wish to make their specific expertise (hardware modules, software applications, technology, etc.) available to the wider community on a global basis providing an opportunity to expand their reach, offer services and seek out solutions.
