Exertis teams up with Bullitt Group to sell CAT-brand mobiles

Exertis has announced a new distribution agreement with Bullitt Group for the Cat range of mobile phones. CAT’s brand is known for creating touch, rugged, reliable equipment for use in harsh environments, and the phones are no exception.

Exertis mobile commercial and services director, Rik Hubbard, said: “By their very nature, certain vertical markets such as the military, blue light services, manufacturing, and construction require more durability and reliability for their mobile devices. Phones, with their smaller-form factor, are more suitable for some workers operating in hazardous areas. The CAT brand is strongly associated with resilience and robustness, and these devices offer a great solution at affordable prices for our resellers that sell into industrial and public-sector markets.”

As part of the deal, Exertise will supply the Cat S31, Cat S41, Cat S30, and Cat S60 smartphones, plus the Cat B25 and Cat B30 mobiles. These devices are drop-tested onto concrete from up to 6ft and can function in extreme temperatures, with reliable battery power and waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof credentials.

Ross Jeffries, sales director at Bullitt Group, global mobile device licensee for Caterpillar, said: “Exertis has been educating resellers in the opportunities in the rugged market, which continues to grow. Their pedigree in providing mobile solutions in the B2B sector makes them an ideal choice to distribute our range of devices and broaden our breadth of customers. We look forward to working together and meeting with customers at their Plug in to Exertis event in April.”
