Zipit Wireless showcases growth and innovation

Zipit Wireless, a Greenville-based provider of software and infrastructure for wireless devices, will showcase their most recent technology application developed in cooperation with Verizon Wireless today at an invitation only event in Greenville, highlighting their progress, evolution, and success. The event also recognizes the addition of former Verizon Wireless COO, Jack Plating, to the Zipit Wireless board of directors.

The recent launch and celebration today is the product of a two-year partnership, fostered when Verizon Wireless approached Zipit to deliver a comprehensive solution that addressed the needs of industries that rely on critical communications. The Zipit® Enterprise Critical Messaging Solution™ harnesses a combination of intellectual property, infrastructure, pioneering vision, and support made available by Zipit.

“We are pleased to have chosen Zipit Wireless to work with us on this pager replacement solution” said Roger Tang, President - South Area Region, Verizon Wireless. “The combination of their innovative connected platform and the nationwide reach of the Verizon Wireless 3G network create the potential to revolutionize the current pager industry.”

The newest Zipit offering also showcases cooperative efforts between public and private sectors within Greenville, the Upstate, and South Carolina to support entrepreneurial companies. SC Launch, SCRA, the SC Venture Authority, the Greenville Chamber of Commerce, Greenville Local Development Corporation, NEXT, Innoventure, UCAN, CHAP, and Nexus Medical have all played a significant role in the company’s continued growth.

“We are extremely appreciative of the support provided by so many organizations as we work to evolve our company into the premier connected technologies provider,” said Frank Greer, President and CEO of Zipit Wireless. “The infrastructure, individuals, and legislative support provided have enabled us to realize our current level of success, and have positioned us for real growth. Each of these organizations are actively working for the betterment of our state – growing and attracting promising new knowledge-based companies.”

Zipit also announced that Jack D. Plating, former COO and senior executive of Verizon Wireless, has joined the Zipit board of directors. According to Greer, “Jack’s Upstate roots, experience, and vision bring extraordinary value to our organization. His wealth of knowledge and contacts make Jack an invaluable addition to our board as we position ourselves for growth.”

“Due to the forward thinking and practical innovation of Zipit Wireless,” said Plating, “I am excited for the opportunity to serve as a member of the Zipit Board of Directors and to work with an innovative team of entrepreneurs, investors, and developers to pioneer future avenues of growth.”
