A pair of CE industry veterans have announced the formation of a new consultancy aimed at helping companies deal with the uncertain markets of today and tomorrow. The new company, BlueSalve, has been founded by Lew Brown and Robert Heiblim.
The Digital Delivery Group (DDG), a consortium of 14 regional CE specialty distributors, and the Z-Wave Alliance announced a “strategic alliance” to provide sales, training, support and increased awareness of the Z-Wave wireless home control technology to custom integrators via DDG’s members. “Z-Wave’s mesh network opens up exciting new possibilities for wireless integration, now and in the future,” said DDG President Mark Friedman. “There is synergy with Z-Wave and our vendors that ultimately will increase sales for our manufacturers, our members and our customers.” “It is a pleasure to welcome Digital Delivery Group to the Z-Wave Alliance,” said Z-Wave Alliance Vice President Mark Walters.
