Vuzix Receives and Delivers Significant Follow-on Smart Glasses Order to Fortune 50 Global Retailer to Support Warehousing and Logistics Operations
A press release dated December 28, 2021 shows that AREA member Vuzix has announced that the Company has received and delivered a follow-on smart glasses order valued at over $400,000 to a large global retailer to support the solution’s full deployment at its first facility to support the warehousing and logistics needs of this customer.
COVID-19 has continued to create global supply uncertainties, disruptions, and inflationary forces which are forcing companies of all sizes to better manage their supply chains. Combined with the ongoing growth of online shopping, attaining new productivity levels for product transportation, inventory management and order fulfillment will become a distinct competitive advantage.
Smart glasses are becoming a cost-effective tool to facilitate these objectives and an increasing number of the world’s largest firms are starting to move from trialing them to deploying them.
“Vuzix has spent a fair amount of time and resources honing this technology and we are now seeing growing market adoption of our products that are allowing companies to operate with greater productivity. We are pleased to be working with this client, which represents just one of multiple major retailers either implementing or testing our technology for logistics and warehouse usage,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.
