Baxi partners with RNF to drive business innovation through apps

baxiRNF Digital Innovation has been chosen by Baxi to help realise its ambition to lead the boiler market in terms of innovation.

The partnership is a direct result of the newly founded Tech Central initiative that brings local government, education, and businesses together to expand the digital economy in Warwickshire.  It showcases the county as a hub of innovation, capable of rivalling London’s Tech City.

Baxi’s Genuine Parts General Manager, David Willetts, heads up the Baxi Heating innovation programme.  He has been exploring how the Company can continually innovate to help set it apart from the competition, and specifically how working with local partners to help support the local economy.  A Tech Central networking event bought the two companies together.

Rob Mannion, RNF Digital Innovation Managing Director, said: “We have been working for some time with local blue-chip companies such as Calor Gas and Bridgestone Tyres on their mobile business strategies. We are leading the way with mobile innovation through the use of new location technologies such as iBeacons and Geofences navigation technology and by adopting new development frameworks like React Native that allow us to develop enterprise-grade apps in record time. Baxi wanted a local partner that could help it on its journey and we’re delighted that it has chosen RNF due to our first-class credentials.”

Dave Willetts said “It’s great to discover a mobile tech company right on our doorstep that not only has the experience to deliver a mobile strategy into our business, but also shares our vision of continuously innovating.  We believe the partnership will be beneficial to both parties for many years to come.”
