Anders+Kern, a distributor of AV and workspace technology solutions, has announced a new distribution agreement with PointGrab, a pioneer in AI based smart sensor technology. 

Through this partnership, Anders+Kern will offer PointGrab’s Sensor Data System, including the CogniPoint sensor, to AV and IT resellers across the UK. 

“We’re excited to take our longstanding relationship with PointGrab to the next level,” says Barrie Meehan, Managing Director at Anders+Kern. “As official distributors, we can bring their industry-leading sensor technology to a wider audience. PointGrab’s CogniPoint sensor, for example, offers a unique combination of high-resolution imaging, sensing, and artificial intelligence, making it ideal for enhancing collaboration and productivity in modern workspaces. This innovative sensor goes beyond simple people counting to provide valuable data on movement patterns, usage ratios, and even object detection.” 

PointGrab’s smart sensors provide real-time, high-fidelity data that can be used to optimise workspace layouts, improve room utilisation and reduce operational costs. 

Unlike traditional sensors, PointGrab’s CogniPoint sensor leverages a powerful combination of technologies, including high-resolution imaging (creating a detailed image of the workspace, providing insights beyond simple presence detection), object tracking, which analyses object dimensions and movement patterns, enabling advanced space utilisation analysis, and artificial intelligence, which uses machine learning algorithms to extract valuable insights from the sensor image, such as occupancy trends and potential security risks. 

This data empowers businesses to make data-driven decisions about their workspaces. Imagine optimising layouts to promote collaboration, identifying underutilised areas for cost savings, or even enhancing security measures with real-time object detection. 

Anders+Kern’s expertise in workspace technology solutions, combined with PointGrab’s cutting-edge sensor technology, will provide customers with a solution for creating smarter and more efficient workspaces. 

“We are excited to partner with Anders+Kern to expand the reach of our Sensor Data System in the UK workspace technology market,” says Larry Levy, VP Customer Success & Partnerships at PointGrab. “Anders+Kern’s strong reputation and deep understanding of customer needs make them an ideal partner to help us deliver the benefits of our technology to businesses across the UK.”
