October 1, 2022

Recognized for Year-over-Year Business Growth

LIBERTYVILLE, IL (October 1, 2022) – MBX Systems, a manufacturer of purpose-built and deployment-ready hardware platforms for OEMs and ISVs requiring turnkey hardware/software solutions, has been awarded the 2022 Americas Rising Star Partner by Dell Technologies OEM Solutions. The award was based on MBX’s ability to successfully consult with new customers to design and integrate their products enabling them to get to market faster. The adoptions spanned edge, embedded and data center solutions for vertical applications leveraging the strengths of both MBX and Dell Technologies OEM Solutions’ offerings.

Key factors helping MBX grow its Dell Technologies OEM Solutions based business included MBX’s development of dozens of vertical-specific Dell Technologies OEM Solutions reference platforms that dramatically shorten time to market, along with fast-track customization options for new products through the MBX Rapid Integration Center. MBX also offers services and components not available directly from Dell Technologies OEM Solutions to address the unique product development and integration needs of OEM customers.

Also contributing to MBX’s Dell Technologies OEM Solutions-based growth were the industry-first MBX Hatch™ toolset enabling customers to track all aspects of their hardware programs without multiple phone calls and spreadsheets, and high-touch MBX program services including inventory management, global logistics, component lifecycle management, and custom branding from bezel to box.

Dell Technologies OEM Solutions’ benefits to MBX customers include global certifications, global warranties that travel with the finished systems, and a team of OEM experts in both the U.S. and European Union. MBX customers using Dell Technologies OEM platforms also have the option to have their applications imaged, tested and verified at Dell manufacturing facilities around the globe.

“Many of our customers want to build their platforms on Tier 1 hardware, in part to facilitate their expansion into global markets.” said MBX CEO Chris Tucker.

“Dell PowerEdge servers are ideal in these scenarios because they are certified for use worldwide and backed by strong global support programs.”

“This Dell Technologies OEM Solutions Rising Star Partner award recognition reflects both the benefits of the Dell Technologies’ OEM portfolio and our own value-add in helping OEMs and ISVs requiring hardware deployments get to market quickly, seamlessly and with the #1 OEM solutions provider in the world*.”
