April 23, 2020 – Varjo, a provider of industrial-grade virtual and extended reality (VR/XR) headsets, has today announced the launch of sales and direct shipping to key markets in the Asia Pacific region including Singapore, Israel, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. In order to better meet industry demand and the needs of current customers, Varjo states that its portfolio of VR/XR headsets is available immediately in these new countries for enterprise users.
“Moving industrial workflows into immersive environments is becoming the norm, a development accelerated by current extraordinary global circumstances,” said Timo Toikkanen, president and COO of Varjo. “We’re seeing tremendous interest from leading enterprises who are looking to leverage VR/XR technologies for applications such as aviation training, design reviews and research, to name a few. Our continued expansion into new territories allows us to accelerate adoption and deliver an exceptional, localized experience to customers around the world.”
With its entrance into new markets, Varjo is also continuing to expand its reseller program, which now provides local, on-the-ground support in 40 countries. As a result, the company has announced that three new resellers – INNOSIMULATION (South Korea), StormFX (Australia and New Zealand), and Synergy (Israel) – have joined its network.
Varjo states that its resellers are handpicked and certified with the goal of providing companies with the best possible local assistance in acquiring, setting up and implementing Varjo’s portfolio of VR/XR headsets including the XR-1 Developer Edition, VR-2 and VR-2 Pro.
Enterprise customers around the globe such as Volvo, FlightSafety and Siemens are already using Varjo’s devices to conduct virtual workforce training, collaborate remotely on the design and prototyping processes, and run academic, clinical and commercial research in order to save time, money and effort, according to the company. With today’s announcement of its latest expansion, Varjo anticipates that the increased availability of its VR/XR headsets will help accelerate enterprise adoption of virtual and extended realities.
