Brisbane, QLD Australia – 22 December 2016-SmartCap Technologies, the thought leaders in driver fatigue, are pleased to announce our new partnership with India’s leading IT solution provider Vareli Tecnac as our distributor to the Indian mining market. With our shared focus on providing innovative technologies to this growing region, SmartCap & Vareli hope to have a strong influence on the mining industry.

In recent times, India’s mining industry has progressed with investment in technologies that prioritize worker’s safety and wellness, reduce risk, and improve operating performance. Both Vareli and SmartCap recognize a need in the market for accurate wearable technology that eliminates microsleeps and ultimately reduces the number of fatigue-related incidents and fatalities in the workplace.

VP of SmartCap’s Global Sales Mr. Darryn Fisher, shared his thoughts on the new alliance “On the back of a very strong year across many global mining regions this partnership between Vareli Tecnac and SmartCap offers a wonderful opportunity to further our mission of getting everyone home safe every day.” 

One of those opportunities included SmartCap being invited to showcase their new product Life by SmartCap at Vareli’s booth at the International Mining and Machinery Exhibition in Kolkata, India. The four-day exhibition which took place in early November of this year featured 400+ exhibitors, 10,000+ business visitors and an exhibition display area that covered 100,000 square meters.

The peaked interest in workplace safety technologies was evident during the event, with many people stopping in their tracks to learn more about the new SmartCap product. “I was very pleased to see the amount of interest by the industry and investment by Australian companies at IMME with the Austrade area being a hive of activity throughout the event.” Mr. Fisher said.

This new partnership provides SmartCap with the opportunity to collaborate and develop new long-term business relationships with some of Vareli’s partners. This includes companies like Wenco International Mining Systems, that specialize in providing leading solutions for fleet management, production optimization and high-precision machine guidance, real time asset health monitoring and dispatch operations. Another notable partner of Vareli’s is Australian manufacturing company Motium, that design high quality components for computing solutions in transportation, automotive and rugged environments.
