• Westcon-Comstor enters distribution agreement with RealWear

        • Westcon-Comstor has signed a new contract with RealWear, experts in hands-free wearable computers, purpose-built for connected worker programmes in the industrial enterprise. 

          The agreement marks the first addition of wearable technology to Westcon-Comstor’s focused vendor portfolio. RealWear’s wearables support Microsoft and Cisco platforms, forming a key part of the solutions focused on working in technical, industrial and hazardous environments.     

          Simon Thompson, Senior Vice President Global Accounts, Westcon-Comstor said, “Westcon-Comstor is the trusted supply chain partner for the world’s largest service providers and system integrators. We take pride in overcoming real-world challenges, delivering proven technologies and the latest innovative solutions globally.

          “We’re delighted to welcome RealWear into our portfolio. We understand the importance of supporting businesses that require industry-specific solutions, and RealWear’s technology provides a unique way of overcoming current challenges in a variety of sectors.”

          RealWear’s flagship product, the HMT-1, is a fully ruggedised voice-activated headset with cameras. Optimised for and certified by Cisco Webex Expert on Demand and Microsoft Teams, among others, RealWear’s products designed to be worn by industrial workers in dangerous and challenging environments to facilitate remote support, freeing the worker’s hands for the job. Each HMT-1 can be used for a wide variety of functions, including remote mentor video calling, document navigation, guided workflow, mobile forms and industrial IoT visualisation.

          This purpose-built technology helps safeguard connected workers while increasing productivity, removing the need for specialists or multiple engineers on site. The technology is particularly relevant in light of travel and social distancing restrictions brought about by COVID-19. RealWear also offers the HMT-1Z1, an intrinsically, ATEX approved model for use where explosive gasses may be present.     

          Jon Arnold, Vice President of EMEA at RealWear added, “at RealWear, as a company fully committed to our channel, we understand the importance of working with a distributor that we value and trust, and one that we can build a long-term relationship with. We are confident that this new agreement with Westcon will allow us to grow our international reseller community, introduce our innovative products to new markets, and provide seamless business continuity across the globe.”
