Westbase.io announces RealWear distribution partnership

The deal will help meet the growing demand for AR and wearable solutions

Westbase.io has announced a new distribution agreement with RealWear, a provider of hands-free head-mounted tablets for digital transformation in industry. 

The distributor, which specialises in 4G, 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), said the deal will help meet the growing demand for augmented reality (AR) and wearable solutions for businesses - enabling the firm and its channel partners to expand their connected worker offering across the UK, Benelux, Nordics and wider Europe.

The addition of RealWear to the portfolio builds upon Westbase.io’s commitment to embracing the latest tech for industry, it added.

"We've been looking at AR tech and its applications in business for a while now; the potential it has for enabling first line workers to be more productive, while maintaining safety at all times, is huge,” explained  Sacha Kakad, Managing Director for Westbase.io. 

"But there’s no doubt that the events of 2020, and their repercussions which will carry through to 2021 and beyond, have considerably accelerated the adoption of this technology across many industries.”

RealWear’s head-mounted tablets are designed to help reduce the number of people in close contact with each other, as well as providing workers with in-situ information and in-the-field training. The tech has found particular cause across the healthcare, oil and gas and manufacturing sectors.

That’s because, with hands-free remote collaboration and communication, first-line and field workers can benefit from senior or specialist support with the need for physical presence – erasing travel complications and aiding social distancing. It can also increase business’ first-time fix rate, Westbase.io says – ultimately helping to boost productivity, improve safety and drive cost savings.

With deployments of the tablets having increased dramatically in recent times, the distributor said it is excited to help expand this presence further. 

“It’s a significant opportunity for Westbase.io and our channel partners to deliver remote solutions which address real-world problems and business advancements,” Kakad continued.

“While it allows us to answer direct market demands today, driven by the pandemic, we’re even more excited for the wider possibilities and look forward to working with RealWear and our partners to bring their leading range of solutions to businesses across Europe.”
