Google Glass returns with Enterprise Edition

Google Glass has returned with a special Enterprise Edition.

The wearable computer, which has a transparent display, is being used by a number of workers to display information and resources without the need to be flicking through a book.

Jay Kothari, project lead, shared: "Glass is a very small, lightweight wearable computer with a transparent display that brings information into your line of sight. In a work setting, you can clip it onto glasses or industry frames like safety goggles so you don't have to switch focus between what you're doing with your hands and the content you need to see to do your job.

"Workers in many fields, like manufacturing, logistics, field services, and healthcare find it useful to consult a wearable device for information and other resources while their hands are busy.

"That's why we've spent the last two years working closely with a network of more than 30 expert partners to build customized software and business solutions for Glass for people in these fields. We've also made improvements to the design and hardware so that it's lightweight and comfortable for long term wear. We've increased the power and battery life too."

The new Enterprise Edition is being used by AGCO, an agricultural machinery manufacturer in Jackson, Minnesota and it has improved productivity on the factory line.

Kothari explained: "Workers at AGCO, an agricultural machinery manufacturer in Jackson, Minnesota, are using Glass Enterprise Edition. By reducing the amount of back and forth workers have to do accessing checklists, viewing instruction manuals or sending photos from tablets or laptops as they assemble machines, Glass has reduced machinery production time by 25 percent and inspection times by 30 percent."

Whilst Peggy Gulick, Director of Business Process Improvement at AGCO, added: "Employees are now working smarter, faster and safer because they have the information they need right in their line of sight."
