Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAN FRANCISCO - Mar 15, 2018 - Streye, a leading Spanish Industry 4.0 technology solutions provider, has been selected by the Glass team at Google, to be the only company worldwide authorized to sell Glass Enterprise Edition online, the latest Glass model for business use.
As the first Spanish developer on Google Glass Explorer Edition, Streye had been chosen as the only qualified partner in Spain for Google’s Glass Enterprise Edition development project before public launch in July 2017. Since then, Streye has become a leading global reseller of wearable smart glasses to businesses everywhere, and a strategic partner for the Mountain View tech giant.
In addition to offering the Glass Partner Developer Pack, Streye will also partner with the Glass team at Google to support new and future Glass Partners. Streye has invested in building a platform for Glass development, called Streye Platform, and offers it as Platform as a Service (PaaS). Here developers new to Glass will be able to quickly build their solutions using Streye’s turnkey components such as “see what I see” video streaming and procedural checklists.
By entering into an agreement with Streye, one of our current Glass Partners, for selling the Partner Developer Packs via online, we are fulfilling our objectives to bring Glass to every developer worldwide.
To reach this agreement, Streye’s business model has been fundamental. It was designed and adapted so that any small and medium-sized enterprises around the world is enabled to implement the digital transformation trend by making use of this cutting-edge technology.
This democratizing, scalable and versatile business model has been one of the company’s assets with an integrated suite of enterprise solutions that consists of live video and audio streaming, live multimedia support, intelligent protocol management and work processes, and systematization of geolocated alerts in real time.
In addition, Streye Enterprise features a barcode, QR and OCR reading capabilities focused especially on logistic tasks allowing integration with ERPs. They have also designed and created their Internet platform with a high level of security, enabling the creation of a true digital ecosystem for smart glasses worldwide.
Thanks to this agreement, Streye is reaffirming its presence in Hong Kong and the United States. The expansion phase has also begun with another office in Germany.
Streye exceeded its expectations in just a few months by selling hundreds of units of the device by 31st December 2017. Its target now focuses on thousands of more units for the rest of 2018, deployed with the full potential of its platform services plus the Partner Develop Pack, the 8-unit Glass Enterprise hardware and accessories pack from Google for developers.
Due to its success, Streye is positioned to become the preferred online Glass Partner when the next generation of Augmented Reality devices hit the market.
The software developed by Streye has already been used by companies such as Mapfre, where an operator, with a Glass Enterprise Edition and a wireless mini-keyboard, performs the survey of the insured vehicles and proceeds to elaborate, among other things, the photographic report before a vehicle repair. At the end of the process, the information is synchronizes with Mapfre’s corporate system, and the expert opinion data can be accessed immediately from the insured’s file.
Grifols, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, is currently implementing the Streye Enterprise solution so that its system operators can contact a team of engineers located in Barcelona and its IT support centers in the USA at any time for technical support when re-installing or carrying out maintenance on all types of IT equipment. Thanks to the fact that the engineer can see what the operator is viewing remotely, Grifols can obtain a faster solution and save travel costs.
These are just a few examples of the application that Streye software has on the Glass Enterprise Edition, and that is already in use. However, it is also applicable in the fields of logistics or industry.
“At Streye, we believe in the necessity and usefulness of smart glasses, such as Glass Enterprise Edition, as well as excellence in software development that makes them work. This is not a market disruption in a classical sense. Disruption usually means ‘expensive and inefficient’ in the minds of potential clients. We want those clients to think of this as a turnkey transitional technology,” says Frank Escandell, Business Development Director at Streye.
Streye works with big companies in the aeronautics, industrial maintenance (Owens-Illinois) or logistics (Salvesen Logística) industries, developing projects that, in many cases, take place under strict confidentiality standards and trade secrecy.
Streye, known until April of 2015 as “Droiders,” is a company that provides technology solutions that consist of research, development, and commercialization of hardware-software-platform solutions for smart devices, Wearable Technologies (smart glasses) integration and IoT, bringing the real to the market.
