Vuzix® Corporation , (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of video eyewear and smart glasses products in the consumer, enterprise and entertainment markets, is pleased to announce that the company has formed a partnership with Atheer, a pioneer of AiR™ (Augmented interactive Reality) computing. The Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses now supports Atheer’s AiR Suite designed specifically for remote expert collaboration, management and rapid task flow deployment, which can be downloaded from the Vuzix app store.
“The M100 Smart Glasses can enhance workflows for companies in a broad range of sectors,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vuzix. “Atheer’s AiR suite is well aligned with the enterprise class productivity and collaboration capabilities that our customers expect from our devices. We’re looking forward to an ongoing relationship that will benefit both of our companies to provide a world-class enterprise solution.”
“We’re excited to work with Vuzix, as their hardware complements and works seamlessly with our AiR Suite for Enterprise,” saidAlberto Torres, CEO of Atheer. “The deskless workforce in Fortune 1000 entities is growing rapidly and needs hands-free access to task-specific information, as well as real-time guidance for complex tasks. Our AiR Suite software and Vuzix M100 is a fitting combination for companies looking to maximize performance and deploy smart glasses-based productivity, immediately.”
Communication between deskless professionals and subject matter experts is key to enabling quick decision making and a productive workforce. The M100 with the Atheer AiR suite enables deskless professionals to see checklists and step-by-step procedures in their smart glasses and enjoy hands-free interaction with information using simple gestures, voice, or head motion. Further, the suite enables professionals to team up with remote experts via video calls and receive guidance through real-time image annotations to resolve problems quickly. The AiR Suite also includes an intuitive task flow authoring tool that allows enterprises to create smart glasses-optimized procedures and task flows with a simple drag-and-drop interface, saving valuable R&D resources and months of development time.
Vuzix and Atheer will demonstrate the AiR Suite running on M100 Smart Glasses in the Vuzix booth #14048 at the Consumer Electronics Show on January 6-9th in Las Vegas.
