Immersive Technologies and Tecwise Sistemas De Automaçao Enters Into Partnership for The Brazilian Market

18 September, 2017

Immersive Technologies has chosen to increase their long-term commitment to the Brazilian market by partnering with TecWise Sistemas de Automaçao, a subsidiary of Comms International, for the creation of a locally based Simulator and VR sales, service and support organization.

This new partnership will accelerate customer results in Brazil and offer unparalleled business improvement, technical and training services delivered by Brazilian staff on the ground across all key mining regions.

During the last three years Immersive has focused additional resources on supporting Brazilian customers to achieve measurable return on investment. This investment led to Vale Ferrosos (Carajás) receiving the Global Business Improvement Award from Immersive Technologies for verified business improvement results. Carajás improved cycle times by 6% and spotting time improved by 14% for CAT 793 trucks.

"The new venture with TecWise Sistemas de Automaçao is designed to build on these recent results, accelerate customer ROI and drive new business growth in a region that offers great opportunities."

David Anderson, Executive Vice President, Sales and Support for Immersive Technologies.

Immersive today has 10 Advanced Simulator platforms and 20 simulator modules deployed in Brazil, which will serve as the foundation for this new commitment to Brazil and the potential it holds.

"We have been working at the very core of our mining clients operations for the past 20 years. We have gained the privilege of being their partner in realising the value that technology can bring when Designed, Deployed and Supported correctly, both by TecWise personnel but most critically, adopted, continuously improved and safeguarded by the clients own personnel. Our understanding of the importance for Technology to seamlessly merge with the individual at a mine site level, and how those individuals all contribute towards the overall client goals, makes the partnership with Immersive People centric solutions an exciting and most relevant part in TecWise mission of being our clients most trusted advisor for Mission critical technology answers at site level today and in the future" commented Omar Garzedin, CEO and LATAM Director of TecWise Sistemas de Automaçao.
