ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies and products for the consumer and enterprise markets, is pleased to announce that iTiZZiMO has joined the Vuzix Industrial Partner (VIP) program. Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Wurzburg Germany, iTiZZiMO's software, the Simplifier, serves as a universal platform to digitally transform an entire organization's business processes to run on multiple mobile devices, including smart glasses. With the Simplifier, it becomes possible to create integrated business apps without deep knowledge of different programming languages, but rather by simple configuration.
As a Vuzix VIP, iTiZZiMO immediately ported the Simplifier to the new Vuzix M300 smart glasses, and began to benchmark these against the competition in the smart glasses industry, and even demonstrated the M300 to some of their most important clients.
"We have used the Vuzix M100 in numerous projects, as it really was the best device in its day. But with the M300, Vuzix has set a new standard. Our customers are very excited," said Florian Rühl, CSO iTiZZiMO. Read the full iTiZZiMO M300 product review here: https://www.itizzimo.com/en/new-hardware-for-the-simplifier-smartglass-vuzix-m300/
iTiZZiMO recently opened its first US based office in Ann Arbor, Michigan, not only as a strategic location to be closer to many of their large global clients such as Daimler, BOSCH, Konica Minolta, and Continental, but also as a trend barometer. For Chris Bouveret, CIO iTiZZiMO, it's no question that the USA will specify which solutions will make the race in terms of digital transformation.
"In Europe the industrial sector is very advanced within automation, but the structures inhibit real digital transformation. In the US, even companies with well-established structures see the advantages of a holistic solution capable of multiplying the implementation speed of applications. That's why the US offers ideal conditions for us to further develop the Simplifier and make it an international success," says Bouveret.
iTiZZiMO focuses on several of Vuzix' core industrial sectors such as Utilities, Manufacturing, Aerospace, and Life Sciences, all of which will require the advanced industrial design, higher performance, and enterprise level security features that only the Vuzix M300 offers.
"Adding iTiZZiMO as a Vuzix Industrial Partner is exciting in the fact that they will take the new Vuzix M300 into the Life Sciences' Lab of the Future, as well as Manufacturing's Industry 4.0 and the enterprise IoT environments, "said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vuzix. "Now with the features that no other smart glasses offer, the M300 will enable their clients to deploy smart glasses at scale, becoming an integral part of their client's mobile solutions in these pioneering industrial evolutions."
The software company iTiZZiMO was founded in 2012 and since then deals with implementing mobile apps for smart devices, such as the Vuzix M100 an dM300 smart glasses, and their integration into existing IT-structures. With the Simplifier, a web-based environment for configuring integrated business apps, iTiZZiMO created a unified technological basis for digital transformation of enterprises. iTiZZiMO provides companies with the technology to configure applications and save resources. Reusable content and continued existence of IT-systems sustainably secure investments and ensure the needed efficiency for digital transformation of companies and their processes. iTiZZiMO has offices in Wurzburg German, and Ann Arbor, MI USA.
