Lulea, Sweden (PRWEB) April 26, 2012
Index Braille – the world's leading Braille printer manufacturer – has established a partnership with Irie-AT to create a hub in the USA for local customer support, sales and repair service.
It’s a partnership for the blind when Swedish Braille embosser manufacturer Index Braille and American Braille specialist Irie-AT establish a new co-operation.
"Index Braille is pleased to announce our partnership with Irie-AT. Our valued customers in the USA will now have local email and phone helpdesk support as well as online and onsite training options to fully harness the power of our new INDEX Version 4 (V4) Braille embosser technology," states Björn Löfstedt, Managing Director of Index Braille.
The partnership’s aim is to combine the world’s best Braille embossers with the best marketing team in the US, creating a win-win situation for the companies as well as for the end users.
International studies like "The Impact of Reading Braille Skills", published by the NFB (National Federation of the Blind), have shown that reading and writing Braille is a door opener to jobs and schools for the otherwise excluded visually impaired.
"Irie's team is thrilled to represent Index Braille and the best, most budget-friendly Braille printers on the world market, and give them a home in the USA," says Jeff Gardner, CEO of Iris-AT.
About Index Braille
Index V4 Braille printers are the easiest to use and most robust Braille embossers available, and boast the most affordable prices. Nearly 30 years developing Braille printers led to Index V4, a complete redesign of the Index Braille printer line, along the introduction of the brand new Braille Box (the first inexpensive, cut-sheet paper, production-speed Braille embosser).
As the first ever a braille printer for the blind has received global design recognition. Two independent juries praise the Index Braille's Braille Box for its innovative design.
All Index Braille printers/embosser share the same cutting edge V4 technology base, which eases maintenance and support and allows offering advanced features even in low-priced Braille printers that would normally only be available in high-end braille embossers.
The Index Braille embosser product offering included braille printers for home, school, office and even industrial 24 hours embossing. The printers are easy to use and easy to like and allow embossing on divers paper formats. All Index Braille embossers come with a 2 years guaranty that can be extended up to 6 years.
