GIENGEN-SACHSENHAUSEN and SAN FRANCISCO – June 2, 2022 – EXTRA Computer, innovative IT manufacturer from Germany, and IGEL, provider of the managed endpoint operating system for secure access to any digital workspace, today announced that EXTRA Computer has joined the IGEL Ready program as a technology partner. IGEL Ready opens up the company’s core enterprise software for tech companies like EXTRA Computer to integrate and validate their products, driving business growth and flexible access to enterprise applications for mutual customers of EXTRA Computer and IGEL.
“Through our collaboration with IGEL, we can offer our customers optimally coordinated hardware and software solutions,” said Armin Stutzmiller, sales director EXTRA Computer GmbH. “Thanks to the combination of security, flexibility and first-class service, our offering provides customers with the best possible protection as well as the highest performance when it comes to Endpoints. These possibilities are a great addition to our industrial PCs and rugged tablets of the brands Calmo and Pokini.”
IGEL software and EXTRA Computer hardware components both are designed for longevity and safety in business and industrial environments.
