Vienna-based smart glass manufacturer Viewpointsystem is the only European company named in the prestigious Gartner ‘Cool Vendors in Frontline Worker Technologies, 2021’ report.
Vienna, June 7, 2021 – Viewpointsystem is one amongst the four companies in the frontline worker technologies space, provided with the “Cool Vendor” tag, famously known for recognizing firms treading a uniquely innovative path.
The “VPS 19” smart glasses, also certified as safety glasses, connect the frontline worker with a remote expert via video and audio stream, allowing the frontline worker to perform a remote inspection or maintenance in a cost-saving, time-efficient and furthermore very pandemic-safe way. Integrated eye tracking enables the remote expert to see exactly what the wearer in the field sees and shows what they are focusing on.
“Being a Gartner Cool Vendor strongly supports our strategy and makes us extremely proud,” said the CEO and owner of Viewpointsystem, Nils Berger. He further added: “It is our declared mission to develop technologies that truly support people in interacting with their environment. We want to meet the increasing demand for remote collaboration tools in the best and, above all, most user-friendly way.”
According to the Gartner research, “The trend over the past couple of years of investments in frontline worker technologies yielding a very high return on investment has been “turbo charged” by the pandemic”. Further, the report recommends that Infrastructure and operations leaders should “Augment the capabilities of remotely supporting frontline workers by leveraging technologies that are packaged “in a box” and do not require expert assistance to set up and use”.
