With Ubimax Frontline software suite fully supported on the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses, Ubimax will now be able to offer its customers even more possibilities to use its platform for augmented and assisted reality solutions to increase the productivity of their employees and make their daily work more appealing. For existing Ubimax customers, the porting of software to the Vuzix Blade was very simple and required a minor server update to enable all of Ubimax Frontline functionalities on the Vuzix Blade without losing any customer specific configurations.

Ubimax Frontline consists of the four core solutions, xPick for manual order picking, incoming/outgoing goods, sorting of goods and inventory and deficiencies; xMake for assembly, quality assurance, inspection and training; xInspect for service and maintenance, inspection, training and remote assistance; and xAssist for remote support, 2-way video and audio, document exchange and remote augmented reality. Fully optimized for Wearable Computing and Augmented Reality, Ubimax Frontline offers a hands-free work experience along the entire application value chain.

"With the Blade's unique and stylish design, we expect the combination of Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses and Ubimax Frontline to open up a whole new market of consumer facing business applications in retail stores or healthcare, which has largely remained an untapped market opportunity today," commented Jan Junker, Ubimax' Chief Commercial Officer.

"Ubimax continues to be at the head of class when it comes to innovative enterprise solutions and Vuzix is delighted that Ubimax Frontline software suite is fully supporting Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses to deliver new hands-free content and productivity tools for consumer facing business applications," said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer. 

Ubimax will be showcasing Ubimax Frontline running on the Vuzix Blade at the Augmented World Expo Europe (AWE EU 2018) taking place October 18-19 in Munich, Germany.
