Panasonic has appointed two new distributors for its rugged handheld devices covering mainland Europe and the UK and Ireland. Jarltech, a specialist distributor of rugged mobile computing devices, will now supply Panasonic’s range of Windows and Android Toughbook handheld devices, as well as its rugged tablets and notebooks, to resellers and system integrators in more than 30 countries across Europe.
Panasonic has also expanded its relationship with rugged device specialists CI Distribution. CI Distribution will now support more than 600 resellers with Panasonic Toughbook handheld devices as well as its rugged tablets and notebooks.
Axel Schmidt, Sales Director, at Jarltech said, “Panasonic has an unrivalled reputation for providing the most ergonomically designed and resilient mobile computing devices. The valuable addition of its growing range of Windows and Android rugged handheld devices to our portfolio will enable our resellers and system integrators to offer the complete range of rugged solutions to their customers.”
Jon Atherton, Sales and Marketing Director, at CI Distribution added, “Panasonic has long been a market leader in the rugged notebook and tablet market, and we are looking forward to helping grow its rugged handheld market share. Our specialist knowledge of the Rugged market and its complete range of rugged solutions and accessories will make a potent partnership.”
Panasonic’s rugged handhelds reduce the need for multiple devices in the workplace by combining the capabilities of a handheld tablet, smartphone and barcode reader in fully-rugged, pocket-sized packages. The devices are suitable computing companions for mobile workers in logistics, manufacturing, retail and emergency services.
