    Victoria, B.C., January 14, 2020: Locelle, Canada’s leading platform to connect women for networking, support and mentorship is hosting Discover Tectoria‘s first ever ‘Women in Tech Lounge’ on Feb 27th, 2020 at Crystal Gardens.

    “I have been to many tech conferences and the traditional vibe is very “bro culture” and not as welcoming for women. I wanted to have a safe space for women where they could gather, connect, share and learn; and VIATEC whole heartedly supported the vision”, said Locelle CEO, Humaira Ahmed.

    This first of its kind lounge will be focused on networking opportunities and inspiring panel talks throughout the day. While the content is still shaping up, the focus will be on helping women navigate issues such as leadership, stereotypes, confidence, growth and more importantly, how to advance in the industry.

    The lounge will also offer complimentary coffee. For interested companies looking to support and participate as sponsors or partners, please reach out to Humaira Ahmed at partners@locelle.com

    Hardhat Wearables launches Localized Collaboration for Safer Remote Worksites at Enterprise Connect see more

    March 23, 2017

    Victoria, BC, Canada - Hardhat Wearables (https://hardhatwearables.com) a division of Priologic Software Inc. (https://priologic.com) is launching a localized collaboration platform for teams working on remote logging, oil and gas, construction and utilities worksites often with little or no Internet connectivity.

    The Hardhat Connect system consists of a local ruggedized collaboration server that is mounted in the crew truck or portable trailer or forests. Hardhat Connect delivers audio, video, screen sharing and telestration between team members wearing Head Mounted devices like Realwear's HMT-1 (Head Mounted Tablet), Fujitsu's Head Mounted Display, or carrying most recent Android devices, PC or Mac computers. Ruggedized Android-based phones and tablets are becoming widely available. The CAT S60 ruggedized phone and Sonim intrinsically safe phone are both widely used in the industry now.

    Priologic teamed with Iotatel Inc. who produce a wifi system that delivers high speed connectivity in the dense coastal rainforests of British Columbia. Doug Pelton, CEO of Priologic says, "The Iotatel team was referred to us by FPInnovations.ca to deliver localized internet in the forests of British Columbia. By leveraging Iotatel's system and our Hardhat Connect product, teams can stay connected while working in rugged and dangerous conditions. Getting a system to penetrate dense foliage is challenging, so we don't have too many competitors in this space." "With Hardhat Connect we hope to make safer working conditions by providing better communications between workers in these remote and dangerous sites. By far the largest number of accidents happen during the first year of work, so excellent communication between a new worker and a  supervisor or safety officer is critical," says Pelton.
