Achieve|DE Announces Value Added Reseller Agreement With iQagent

Achieve|DE is partnering with iQagent to deliver practical augmented reality mobility solutions as a core component of our Digital Enterprise initiatives.

Achieve|DE, an advanced industrial software solution distributor for Siemens, announces agreement with iQagent to promote and sell their award-winning practical augmented reality (AR) mobility platform as a core part of their Digital Enterprise initiative.

iQagent’s solution displays resources relevant to nearby process equipment on mobile and wearable devices; users simply point their device camera at equipment to display related live process data (from PLC, SCADA or ODBC compliant systems) as well as active links to documents, schematics, videos, and forms. QR codes are used to identify equipment or process areas, also known as Points of Interest or POIs. AR capable iOS devices and Microsoft HoloLens view the POI resources in an AR Scene that, once created, is persistent across all similar devices. iQagent also contains a form creator and event notification feature. iQagent is available for use on mobile devices such as Windows tablets, iPad, iPhone, and Android as well as wearables such as Microsoft HoloLens and RealWear HMT-1.

“This new relationship provides our network of trusted experts with iQagent’s innovative solutions to help our extensive industrial customer base increase productivity, improve safety and reliability,” said Steve Garbrecht, Chief Digital Architect for Achieve|DE. “Furthermore, we see this platform providing a critical bridge between automation technologies and the emerging workforce of digital natives.”

“Our practical use of augmented reality technology is a significant improvement over other vendors’ products and we are proud to have Achieve|DE support this new product line as part of their solutions,” said Bob Meads, founder and CEO of iQagent. “We are proud to offer this new capability to customers to aid in their journey to becoming a digital enterprise.”
