SINGAPORE – 10 March 2021 – Exclusive Networks, the global “value creating” specialist distributor for cybersecurity, cloud solutions and Unified Communications, today announces its distribution partnership with RealWear, Inc (“RealWear”), the global leader of hands-free head-mounted computers for digital transformation in industry.
Exclusive Networks is now an official distributor for RealWear’s HMT-1 and HMT-1Z1 voice-enabled headsets across South East Asia, Australia-New Zealand, and India. The state-of-the-art headsets improve communication amongst a distributed workforce, as well as safety compliance.
“RealWear is pleased to be partnering with Exclusive Networks at a time when our customers are actively looking to empower and connect their remote and field services workforce. Exclusive Networks’ wide regional reach in the Unified Communications space and excellent pre-sales and post-sales support makes them a perfect partner for RealWear in the Southeast Asian, ANZ and India markets,” says John Higgs, Vice President, Asia Pacific at RealWear. “RealWear’s fully ruggedised Android wearable computers are specifically designed to safely support industrial and field service workers in high-risk environments. Through the RealWear HMT-1 and HMT-1Z1 devices, frontline workers across a range of industries can collaborate remotely, and access data files and documentation workflow on a real-time basis, resulting in higher compliance rates, improved safety and productivity, and better customer service.”
RealWear’s HMT-1 and HMT-1Z1 wearable computers incorporate a high-resolution camera, noise-cancelling digital microphones that allows the user to control the device or communicate even in high-noise environments. Users can safely take photographs, pull up additional multimedia or open up a variety of third-party productivity apps that are optimised for voice controls.
“RealWear’s headsets are the future of the connected worker, especially for industrial and remote workers who are required to perform complex tasks in a very hands-on environment ” says Mike Beesley, Vice President, Unified Communications, Asia Pacific at Exclusive Networks. Beesley added: “Complex equipment and systems often take a team of experts to maintain and fix, which can be hard to organise and find logistically challenging. RealWear’s head-mounted wearable computers connect on-site workers with experts dotted around the world. Its integration with collaboration software such as Microsoft Teams allows for collaboration and remote communication between subject matter experts who can work together to address difficult challenges despite not being on-premises. This is a great addition to Exclusive Networks’ Unified Communications offering and we look forward to providing this solution to our customers.”
RealWear’s wearable computers connect frontline workers across almost all industries, from oil and gas, mining and construction, to food and beverage. RealWear allows organisations to connect their distributed workforce to a central network, making communication easier, reducing errors, improving compliance and ensuring workflows can be access and followed easier and quicker.
Exclusive Networks will make RealWear’s HMT-1 and HMT-1Z1 headsets available to partners and end customers in Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India. By leveraging its local network of over 20 offices in the APAC region, Exclusive Networks will work with resellers and systems integrators to ensure companies in Southeast Asia, from start-ups and SMEs to multinationals, will be able to connect their distributed, frontline workforce.
