Buddy Platform Ltd (ASX:BUD) will look to Dicker Data Ltd (ASX:DDR) as its primary distribution channel for Buddy Ohm in Australia.

Buddy Ohm is a system for facility resource monitoring and verification that uses sensors to track temperature, humidity, electricity, gas, water, and steam consumption, and solar power generation.

This allows operators and tenants to monitor critical systems and drive down monthly resource spending.

Negotiations with Telstra end

Yesterday Buddy revealed it had ceased negotiations for Telstra Ltd (ASX:TLS) to become the primary Buddy Ohm reseller in Australia.

Instead, current distributor, Dicker Data will become the primary distribution channel for Buddy Ohm in Australia.

Global distribution growing

Globally, Buddy will distribute through Ingram Micro into the UK, Spain and Germany.

This milestone was a direct result of the investment made by both Buddy and Ingram Micro to exhibit together at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona back in late February 2018.

Furthermore, sales of Buddy Ohm in the UK by way of authorised reseller, Rizon IoT, have commenced.

Leveraged to the Internet of Things (IoT)

Buddy provides scalable Internet of Things (IoT) data aggregation and management infrastructure by way of three unique offerings – Buddy Cloud, Buddy Ohm and Parse on Buddy.

The Buddy Cloud offers smart city providers a globally scalable data management platform.

Governments and organisations around the world already have investments in connected lighting, parking, traffic, building monitoring.

Buddy Cloud can help provide visibility and control system-wide for large-scale projects.

Buddy Ohm is a complete and low-cost solution for facility resource monitoring and verification.

Finally, Parse on Buddy is a free mobile backend as a service (mBaaS).
