RAVE Computer Honored as Varjo ‘Reseller of the Year’ Second Year In A Row

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., January 31, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RAVE Computer today announced it has once again received the Reseller of the Year – North America award from Varjo Technologies. Varjo, the industry leader in virtual and mixed reality hardware, awarded formal recognition to their top 2022 Value Added Resellers (VAR) at the 2023 Varjo VAR Global Summit in Helsinki, Finland last Thursday. Varjo’s global network of 55 commercial partners spans North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific with RAVE winning the top honor in the North American region.

"RAVE Computer had a record breaking 2022," said Tristan Cotter, GM, North America, Varjo Technology. "For the second year in a row, we proudly awarded RAVE as Varjo's North American Reseller of the Year. RAVE is the definition of a partner, with aggressive growth goals; not only did they open their RenderBEAST Immersive Lab, but also tapped into their local community to broaden their relationships in manufacturing. We can't wait to see what new milestones and heights we are able to achieve in 2023 as we continue to grow ‘Better Together’."

The Reseller of the Year recognition is given annually to Varjo partners who have demonstrated the best possible results in providing support and advice to customers in acquiring, setting up, and implementing Varjo’s portfolio of highest-resolution VR/XR products.

"RAVE is humbled to once again earn Varjo’s Reseller of the Year for North America," said Stacey Ferguson, President, RAVE Computer. "We’re grateful to Varjo for this incredible honor and collaborative partnership, and proud to be an extension of the Varjo team and brand. RAVE’s mission to empower people to overcome challenges through innovation perfectly aligns with Varjo’s best-in-class HMD offerings and overall philosophy of excellence. Better together, we offer a complete turnkey immersive package that goes beyond reselling and truly creates an innovative solution that’s been proven to maximize valuable resources in multiple industries."

Together, RAVE and Varjo have seen the power of immersive technology transform how automotive and manufacturing industries train workers and design and produce goods. On an even larger scale, immersive training and simulation has transformed the defense industry, resulting in saved time, money, and lives.

In response to the increased demand of Varjo’s XR-3 in the defense industry, Varjo has introduced a TAA-line of XR-3s that are produced in Finland, and more recently, the XR-3 Focal Edition, which is also TAA compliant, and offers superior visual quality for advanced XR training use cases where seeing small text and illustrations on physical instruments close-up is mission-critical. RAVE and Varjo will be hosting an XR-3 Focal Edition roadshow event in RAVE Computer’s Metro-Detroit RenderBEAST Zone the week of March 6th, focusing on defense, automotive, manufacturing, and health care use cases. Appointments are required. Contact RAVE for additional information.
