Vuzix unveils M300 Smart Glasses VIP programme
Initiative to enhance support for key software application partners
Vuzix Corporation, a supplier of video eyewear and smart glasses products in the consumer, enterprise and entertainment markets, has announced that it is introducing the M300 Smart Glasses 'Vuzix Industrial Partner (VIP) programme to provide enhanced support for key software application partners.
The launch of the VIP programme is in preparation of Vuzix's M300 smart glasses shipments to key accounts.
According to the vendor, the M300 Smart Glasses VIP programme is an invitation only opportunity for a limited number of Vuzix' most successful M100 software application developers.
Vuzix said these accounts have been hand selected and invited to participate because they have demonstrated excellence in developing and deploying applications that have been tested in the field and proven to provide value and workflow efficiency in the enterprise space.
"Those joining our VIP programme have consistently demonstrated commitment to improved performance through wearable display technology. These are the companies that will help us drive large increases in industrial deployments in 2016, 2017, and beyond. Through the VIP programme, we are delighted to provide best-in-class support to these great partners and to play a vital role in the solutions they bring to their customers," said Paul Travers, president and chief executive officer at Vuzix.
The company said enrolled M300 Smart Glasses VIP developers will receive early access to the new Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses, a variety of co-marketing and media opportunities and much more. In addition, partners will receive dedicated engineering and customer service support from Vuzix as they deploy current projects and develop and rollout new applications.
"By increasing Vuzix' support of our VIP partners we significantly improve the application software ecosystem across a wide range of industrial use cases for Vuzix smart glasses. End users benefit from mature applications available the same day the M300 products are released, and beyond that, our users can rely on the VIP partners for experienced change management and project implementation, feature rich applications bespoke to their industry, and the stability of a long term software partner capable of concurrently supporting multiple Vuzix products on a single platform," Travers said.
The M300 Smart Glasses VIP partner programme is the latest addition to a series of channel support initiatives Vuzix offers, including its VAR programme, Wholesale Reseller programme and Academic programme.
