H-E-B, the Texas-based retailer – and one of the US’ top 15 largest, with a recorded US$24bn revenue – has piloted the Vuzix Basics Video.

Vuzix is a supplier of Smart-Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology to both the consumer and enterprise markets.

The new technology allows so seamless setup, integrating the technology to operations efficiently.

The Vuzix Basic Video application provides noise-cancelling and high-quality audio, enhancing the smart glasses’ Augmented Reality, and making the technology suitable for noisy environments and operations.

“Daniel Estrada, Associate Team Leader at H-E-B, pulled the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses out of the box and had them in productive use in a matter of minutes,” said Greg Flickinger, Group VP of Manufacturing Operations at H-E-B.

“The ability to leverage augmented reality on the plant floor will open the door to a game changing approach to technical education and knowledge transfer.”

“We’ve really just started to scratch the surface of all the ways we can drive value with the Vuzix M300 in our operations.”

The technology works towards providing operators with the correct data on demand, as well as allowing its users to work hands free.

“Vuzix Basics Video is built to work right out of the box: click, connect, collaborate,” stated Paul Boris, COO of Vuzix.

“The feedback we’ve received from H-E-B and other pilot customers validates the value proposition and that the ability to put the Vuzix M300 into productive use, quite literally in minutes, is transformational.”

More importantly, the immediate ROI and simplicity of deployment unlocks a flood of additional, high value use cases for our customers. We are excited to hear of H-E-B’s success, and are looking forward to expanding our relationship in the weeks and months ahead.”
