Leading Solutions NZ Ltd partners with TouchBoard Australia to bring one of Australia’s most popular multi-touch panels to the NZ marketplace
AV Hardware supplier, Leading Solutions NZ Ltd, has today announced an exciting distribution partnership in New Zealand with Australian multi-touch panel and AV cart manufacturer, TouchBoard.
TouchBoard’s range of large multi-touch panels offer a practical, easy-to-use interactive screen with the latest whiteboarding wireless features. With over 10 years of experience in the Australian marketplace, TouchBoard has become widely popular and a known and trusted brand across Australia by providing customers with quality products with exceptional value for money. Having been available across Australia through an impressive reseller partner network that includes some of Australia’s leading AV Integration companies, TouchBoard has finally landed in New Zealand through its new partnership with rising AV star, Leading Solutions NZ Ltd.
TouchBoard’s range of interactive screens come in 65, 75, 86 and 98” versions with native Android OS version 8 included as standard, with the option of installing an Intel OPS, Google Chrome Box or MAC Mini to create a seamless tablet like experience on the Operating System of your choice. Offering 4K UHD resolution, the TouchBoard range makes collaboration a breeze with the ability to wirelessly share and connect with up to 4 devices simultaneously.
With a powerful whiteboard feature, allowing for annotation even over video which can then be saved and shared easily, schools and companies will finally have a cost-effective solution which doesn’t take days to learn how to use. In fact, Leading Solutions states that the learning curve is only around 1 hour as the interface is so familiar. “If you use a smart phone, tablet or computer then you can already pretty much use a TouchBoard screen, as the interface is the same, the only thing to learn is the whiteboard feature and how to save and share content.” stated Lee Taylor of Leading Solutions. This last aspect is why TouchBoard should prove to be popular in the Education market when compared to other options currently available. Some of the incumbent brands are reputed to require over 15 hours of training, which considering all the training the teachers are required to do around their role especially with the new digital tech curriculum coming in 2020, the teachers will struggle to add any extra training to their already heavy schedule.
TouchBoard also offers a practical and cost-effective range of mounting solutions for large screens, whether they be a TouchBoard panel or even a Cisco Webex board. Built of high-grade materials, they can hold up to 136kgs and most offer electric lift with all being priced competitively. One option offers a school the chance to turn a mobile cart into an interactive table, called the “Table-Easel Cart” which during the recent uLearn education conference proved to be a massive point of interest for the school principals who were present.
Lee Taylor, of Leading Solutions NZ Ltd, explains;
“Our partnership with TouchBoard offers schools and businesses another option for interactive panels and carts, one that is more practical and cost-effective than similar products currently in the marketplace. With local support combined with the success of the many user schools in Australia providing proof of concept to its high performance. Our goal now, is working with current and potential resellers to support them in getting this great brand out into the NZ market.”
Matt Gibbon, founder & CEO of TouchBoard, says;
“We are proud of the growth of the TouchBoard brand across Australia in the past 5 years and believe this has been achieved by bringing to market a quality product that is easy to use and exceptional value for money. Customer focus, service and support has been our primary emphasis and differentiating key to success. The plan of expanding TouchBoard into the New Zealand market has always been considered, the mission was to find a company which shared the same passion for the product and a great focus to customer satisfaction, service and support. After meeting the team at Leading solutions, I was totally impressed by their staff, company ethos, strong customer focus and proven success across the New Zealand marketspace. The synergies between the both Companies are strong and thus, made it an ideal decision to partner with Leading Solutions as our TouchBoard distributor across New Zealand.”
Leading Solutions NZ Ltd, based in Auckland, is fast becoming an important player in the local AV marketplace, having just recently announced another new partnership with world-renowned Salamander Designs of the USA. Lee Taylor was quoted saying “... and we have another important partnership coming up in the PoE field, so watch this space!”.
