eCOUNT embedded, a German manufacturer of cloud connected embedded computing building blocks, and Diamond Point International (DPI) have signed an official distribution partnership. Under the terms of the new agreement, DPI will sell eCOUNT embedded’s cloud connected flat-panel controllers, ultra low power Computer-on-Modules and RFID reader platforms in the United Kingdom.
The partnership enables DPI to strategically widen its extensive portfolio of embedded computer technologies to include cloud connected embedded computing building blocks, offering application-ready remote monitoring, management and maintenance of systems via clouds – functions that will become increasingly important for distributed IIoT and Industry 4.0 devices. Cloud connectivity of embedded computing building blocks such as cloud connected flat-panel controllers, ultra low power Computer-on-Modules and RFID reader platforms opens up new market segments and project-related synergy effects for both companies. Joint projects, design-in activities and regular training sessions will also intensify cooperation on an ongoing basis.
Dirk Finstel, managing partner and CTO of eCOUNT embedded, is pleased with the new sales partnership: “We need the support of strong local distributors and value adding resellers to expand and strengthen the global sales of our new flat-panel controller and RFID reader solutions with cloud connectivity. We are happy to have found a strong distribution partner for the UK with Diamond Point International.”
“Diamond Point has had a long association with eCOUNT embedded and we are proud to be able to take our relationship a step further by becoming their official distributor for the UK,” explains DPI’s managing director Martin Frederiksen. “Both companies have been prominent players in the embedded market for many years and with this new official partnership we can bring even greater collective knowledge to our UK customers, catering in particular for specialised embedded displays and industrial RFID based projects. I’m confident that our partnership will create long-term mutual benefits for our customers and both our companies.”
