Independent Service Provider for a major ground logistics company relies on Peak Technologies’ turnkey mobile workforce solution to improve operational efficiencies
Columbia, MD – February 11, 2021 – Peak-Ryzex inc. (now Peak Technologies), a provider of digital supply chain and mobile workforce solutions, announced today that RB Express has selected Peak Technologies’ mobile workforce solutions offering to help them deploy Zebra Workforce Connect Push-to-Talk (PTT) Pro Powered by Savanna™ on their newly-upgraded fleet of Zebra TC77 mobile computers.
With daily delivery numbers increasing, Daniel Blatt, owner of RB Express needed a better way to supervise shifts, monitor mid-route changes, and address delivery concerns and accident reports. He was also looking to upgrade software to take advantage of additional features, such as picture sharing to confirm package delivery. To address these needs, Peak Technologies recommended RB Express run a pilot program to run Workforce Connect PTT Pro, a Zebra software application that optimizes voice and messaging communications and collaboration between drivers and central operations in real-time.
“Work Force Connect PPT provides RB Express a way to marry all voice and data communications with one multi-functional, hand-held mobile computer.” Said Pat Bogan, Director of Zebra Global Strategic Accounts. “With PPT, employees can now talk live to any user or group of users with the press of a button, whether they are in the office or on their route. This instant ability to communicate seamlessly over wifi, or cellular is a game changer.”
Implementing Workforce Connect PTT Pro allowed Blatt to customize existing mobile device settings to be in constant (and secure) contact with his entire fleet without requiring drivers to utilize their personal mobile devices. The ability to modify picture sharing, and manage tasks independently from the wireless carrier, including name changes, text messaging and GPS tracking, while also restricting parameters on each mobile device was vital in improving operational efficiencies.
Peak Technologies also provided the consulting, implementation and help desk services to allow RB Express to upgrade its drivers to the Zebra TC77 mobile devices. All in all, the mobile device upgrade and addition of Workforce Connect PTT Pro with Peak Technologies’ guidance allowed RB Express to realize better and faster communication, and more than 50% savings versus traditional wireless plans.
“Scanners are vital to our operation,” said Daniel Blatt, Owner of RB Express “There are companies that provide lower-cost solutions, but the initial cost outweighs the expertise and ongoing, reliable customer service that Peak Technologies delivers.”
“Our mobility offering team is always looking for ways to help our customers deliver a better customer experience to their end customers, by being faster, more reliable or being agile to quickly adjust to today’s changing business environment,” said Jennifer Ward, Peak Technologies Mobility Solutions Offering Manager. “Developing the solution with the right managed mobility services, mobile device and voice communication application gives RB Express the efficiency gains they were looking for in the ever-changing, fast-paced world of last-mile package delivery.”

Peak Technologies, Inc.
The last few months have been incredibly exciting for our organization. In early April, we changed ownership to Sole Source Capital, an experienced private equity company focused on the industrial services market and committed to our growth. With Sole Source’s support, we have added tremendous capabilities, resources, and industry expertise to the Peak portfolio through the acquisition of three companies in the last 60 days.
Along with these exciting developments comes a renewed sense of commitment and purpose. To celebrate this exciting new chapter, we wanted to use this opportunity to reflect on our past, while looking forward to the future. We are extremely pleased to announce that we have changed our company name to Peak Technologies, Inc.
For many of our long-time customers, this is a return to the company name that had been in place since our founding in 1981. When we merged with Ryzex in 2011, we combined our names to symbolize the union of two industry leaders. But over the last few years, we have become ONE Peak, added additional capabilities, battled through a pandemic together, and feel that the time is now to re-brand the company as we look forward to the future.
