Vuzix Sees Order Numbers for Smart Glasses Rise
A pilot scheme from AMA XpertEye is converted into a full rollout, seeing a surge in order numbers for Vuzix.
Vuzix have emerged as a leader in the field of enterprise-focussed augmented reality (AR), offering its services to various industries, seeing particular success with its M300 Smart Glasses system. The company reports that it has recently received on of its largest orders for M300 Smart Glasses, which came from AMA XpertEye Inc.
AMA XpertEye are specialists in videoconferencing, and its video conferencing systems are used in over 60 countries for purposes such as remote maintenance, remote support, knowledge-sharing and in-field assistance.
Previously, AMA XpertEye was using the M300 smart glasses as part of a pilot scheme, this has now been transformed into a full order, with Vuzix receiving orders from AMA XpertEye to date totalling $900,000 (USD).
“AMA has hundreds of active pilot programs and this follow-on order for Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses will help satisfy the growing demand and number of conversions to commercial rollouts we are seeing across our customer base,” said Christian Guillemot, AMA CEO and Founder.
“Our M300 Smart Glasses enterprise business continues to expand in 2018 and we are delighted to see an existing customer place a single follow-on M300 order that far exceeds their 2017 total order volume. Vuzix is making a concerted effort to work closer with our extensive M300 enterprise customer base to successfully migrate hundreds of active pilot programs into productive larger rollouts. AMA is a leader in the remote field service market and their new business represents a great example of the successful conversions we are starting to see from pilot programs to productive rollouts for Vuzix,” said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer.
Vuzix recently addressed shareholders with a letter where the company predicted that revenue would continue to rise as pilot schemes and trial runs were converted into full rollouts. This new order appears to lend credence to this prediction.
