UMPC distributor, Tegatech Australia, has inked an agreement with Taiwanese vendor, TwinHead.
The vendor offers a range of semi-rugged ultramobile PCs (UMPCs) built to resist drops, without the same level of safety against water and dust that a properly rugged notebook would have. Tegatech principal, Hugo Ortega, said the technology would appeal to a number of verticals looking for rugged technology outside of extreme environments, as the price point was much lower than on fully-rugged products.
“We see the TwinHead line as appealing to mining, engineering, logistics and military verticals,” Ortega said. “The other good thing about TwinHead products is that they are well-supported by accessories, which is not always the case with UMPCs.”
Tegatech is getting good business at present, Ortega claimed, with mobility and productivity becoming important to organisations with the tough economic climate. It is also planning to introduce another vendor to Australia in April.
“We’re finding an increase in communication from our key customers, and an increase in quality of lead and speed in which customers are looking to get projects completed,” Ortega said.
