SAP to Launch 3rd Application Supporting Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses

New AR Operator Rounds Application Unveiled This Week at TechEd & d-code Conference in Las Vegas

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 21, 2014 -- Vuzix Corporation (OTCQB: VUZI), a leading supplier of Video Eyewear and Smart Glasses products in the consumer, commercial and entertainment markets, today announced that SAP will be unveiling its third state-of-the-art application supporting Vuzix' M100 Smart Glasses for the enterprise markets at the TechEd & d-code Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, held on October 20 - 24, 2014.


SAP's AR Operator Rounds application enables a workforce to conduct operator rounds and perform inspections of their equipment and facilities hands-free when using the Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses. Increased resulting efficiencies include reduced maintenance, as well as improvements in compliance and environmental, health and safety (EH&S) concerns. AR Operator Rounds support advanced features like communications with beacons allowing equipment ID and improved indoor navigation, equipment readings and measurements directly in the Smart Glasses, and over the shoulder remote support, full voice control; all with hands-frees operation, a compelling feature offered by Vuzix' wearable M100 Smart Glasses.

SAP also recently showcased, and has started selling, two other augmented reality apps that support Vuzix Smart Glasses - SAP AR Warehouse Picker mobile app and SAP AR Service Technician mobile app.

"We have been working closely with SAP to develop applications for the industrial user to increase productivity and efficiency for the enterprise market and we are pleased that SAP continues to roll out new applications that support our smart glasses. Our products are aimed at helping our customers simplify their work flow, and drive growth and ROI for their business." commented Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix.
