Pyreos announces the 2nd stage of its global expansion has been completed, with the appointment of ten sales and distribution channel partners to support customers in Asia-Pac, to help deal with the exceptional interest levels in the Pyreos gesture sensor product from mobile phone and tablet computer manufacturers in China, Taiwan, Hong-Kong and Japan.
- Scottish company, a pioneer of next generation infrared sensor products and touchless gesture control for mobile phones & tablets
- Adds ten South-East sales channel partners to cope with unprecedented demand for gesture sensor product
- Interest accelerated after recent launch of gesture enabled Samsung Galaxy 4
Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jeff Gray says: “There is phenomenal interest in our low power gesture sensor in that region, which has intensified since the introduction of the Galaxy 4 by Samsung which has gesture functionality. Many customers have told us that they see our gesture sensing as the lowest power and more long term solution for mobile and tablet devices that can work from close-up to a few meters of distance. It is great to add so many well established distribution partners to support our customers in their respective regions in Asia-Pac.”
Jeff Wright, CEO & Co-Founder of Pyreos comments: “These developments will ensure customers in Asia-Pac can rapidly access our gesture sensor products as well as our industrial sensor products and receive world class sales and customer support from our partners.”
