Tailwinds’ Take: sounds positive, but I’m not sure what it means for Vuzix. Who selects these partners? How many are there? Is this a big deal? VUZI continues to position themselves well, but we are looking to see translation into real revenue growth to get super excited again.
ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies and products for the consumer and enterprise markets, is pleased to announce the Company has been selected as an Amazon Web Services (AWS) hardware launch company for the general availability release of AWS Internet of Things (IoT) Analytics.
AWS IoT Analytics is a fully-managed service that makes it easy to run sophisticated analytics on massive volumes of IoT data without having to worry about all the cost and complexity typically required to build an IoT analytics solution. It is an easy way to run analytics on IoT data and get insights to make better and more accurate decisions for IoT applications and machine learning (ML) use cases.
“Productivity is driven by having the right data at the right time, in a consumable way for the operator. AWS IoT Analytics allows you to filter, analyze, and derive insights from massive amounts of IoT data. Combined with the Vuzix M300, a leading industrial hands free wearable solution, operators can visualize the data and act in real time on the insights from AWS, which will drive large ROI and productivity improvements,” said Paul Boris, COO of Vuzix.
The Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses deliver a “hands free” digital world, providing unprecedented access to information, data collection and more. Enterprises can improve existing workflows and open new opportunities to improve industrial productivity through applications such as work instructions, warehouse picking, augmented reality, and remote service. Since the M300 is designed for Enterprise applications, it has a series of well thought out accessories enabling operations on the plant floor, a construction site or the warehouse.
“Vuzix continues to lead the way in wearable innovation and is excited to grow the relationship with Amazon through this partnership. The scale and capabilities of AWS has led to Amazon being recognized as an IoT platform leader and this partnership will unlock tremendous value across the industrial supply chain for a large number of new and existing customers,” said Alex Kelly, Director of Innovation & Strategic Partnerships, Vuzix.
