Our Alliances: APX Labs
The Deloitte and APX Labs Alliance
Deloitte and APX Labs, a leader in enterprise software for Smart Glasses, announced an alliance to enable enterprise adoption of wearable technologies. This alliance will combine APX Labs' Skylight™ software products with Deloitte's leading consulting capability to provide a platform for experimentation and solution development powered by smart glasses.
As a part of this alliance, Deloitte will create immersive client demonstration centers to help clients better understand wearable technologies and apply the technology to business challenges. The Deloitte Rosslyn, VA office will launch the first demonstration center in March 2014 with four additional centers to debut over the next year in New York, Chicago, San Jose and Atlanta. Clients from a range of industry sectors will get hands-on exposure to integrated smart glasses solutions for manufacturing, warehousing, field service, supply chain and other crucial business functions. The immersive environments will incorporate technology, process reengineering and change management methodologies into solution sessions for executive leadership teams to formulate and execute new initiatives related to wearables.

"Smart glasses will be a catalyst for improving how work gets done for millions of people. Ranging from nurses to field installation techs to assembly line workers to warehousing and logistics, these types of jobs can be done better with real-time, hands-free access to information. The technology is now at a state where it is available, affordable and practical for business use,"
