Crank | AMETEK extends embedded GUI development services & support in Japan with new authorized distributor OsakaNDS

Online PR News – 09-September-2022 – OTTAWA – We are excited to announce that Crank |AMETEK has partnered with OsakaNDS to extend graphical UI development services and support in Japan. This partnership will help streamline high-performance GUI development for embedded system developers in the region.

With a focus on advancing embedded system development with automotive devices (MaaS, connected car, ADS), smart appliances, and industrial equipment (including AI & IoT), OsakaNDS has been helping embedded system clients for over 40 years.

To further expand its services, OsakaNDS created the Advanced Technology Center to provide customers with professional services as a solution aimed at helping differentiate their products with cutting-edge hardware & software technology. This new partnership will make it easier for developers of embedded devices to design GUI experiences without limits.

"We are really excited to help clients in creating new value with the technology of Crank, which has more than 500 million units worldwide," said Yutaka Toida, Director, Advanced Technology Center at OsakaNDS. "As an easy-to-use UI development tool, Storyboard can not only help our customers in their development but with improving the CX - customer experience of their products." We (OsakaNDS) look to provide customers with high quality and cutting-edge technology and offering Storyboard helps us with creating more value for manufacturers in Japan."

Storyboard was built to help embedded development teams create modern and intuitive touch screen experiences. Through it, designers and developers can work together collaboratively in an efficient development workflow to ensure UI/UX design elements are preserved while optimizing the application for performance on the target hardware. With Storyboard, teams can accelerate UI development, iterate on design changes more quickly and have maximum UI flexibility across hardware and OS platforms, resulting in unmatched performance and experiences on touch devices.

"Today's customers expect an intuitive touch screen experience; however, delays in development can often compound to a point where the UX gets compromised in their rush to get to market on time," said Martin Jomphe, General Manager at Crank. "Together, we're providing the necessary resources for companies, developers, and UI designers to create touch screen experiences for their embedded products that exceed consumer expectations."
