ISDM and Touchstar form partnership to deliver real time benefits for rugged mobile computer users

09 March 2021

TouchStar Rugged Mobile Computers, a market leader and UK designer and manufacturer of rugged mobile computers and ISDM, a wireless network specialist, have today announced a new strategic partnership. The partnership, which is set to deliver “best fit” real time mobile computing solutions to users in the supply chain, will see the two companies combine their global expertise with over 30 year’s technological experience to deliver a high-quality IT solution.  

Using the latest Cisco Wi-Fi wireless solutions to deliver secure, high-performance wireless coverage, the joint solution will ensure end users will benefit from futureproof “always-on” wireless connectivity that will enable real-time performance, efficiency and accuracy for users of TouchStar’s rugged mobile computers. The joint solution will ensure network coverage is maximised at the same time providing mobile users with flexible wireless networking that is both future-proof and scalable.

Peter Marsh, Sales Director of TouchStar comments, “Now more than ever before, the supply chain is having to adapt at a blistering pace to keep touch with high customer expectations, staff shortages and the impact of both COVID-19 and Brexit. The real drive behind most new implementations of technology is the need for real-time data. For many operations the speed at which data can be collected and the ability for that data to be analysed and acted on is vital. Technology that helps to bridge that gap is in demand which is why we are delighted to be partnering with ISDM. Our devices rely on reliable infrastructure which is now more critical than ever before. Together we can guarantee reduced downtime and an operation that is more productive, accurate and cost efficient.  

Richard Shelley, Head of Enterprise Networks at ISDM stated, “At ISDM, we strive to deliver solutions that support the requirements of small businesses and multinational enterprise clients alike. We understand that no matter how good the business application, it will only work as intended if the underlying network is designed to support it. A robust network infrastructure is the backbone of that communication as it allows people to stay connected and information to be available, securely, at all times.  The pandemic has seen businesses adjust to home working in 2020 and we’re seeing the rise of the hybrid model of working in 2021. Businesses will once again have to adapt accordingly to ensure they have a network that supports reduced downtime and the secure flow of information. The strategic partnership with TouchStar will ensure organisations have that confidence and peace of mind in their IT capabilities.”
