The growth and impact of wearable technology in today’s workplace has been broadly recognized by industry analysts. Gartner Research expects smart glasses to realize $1 billion annual cost savings in the field services industry alone, and IMS Research conservatively estimates the wearable technology market to grow to $6 billion by 2016.
There is a behind-the-scenes movement to put wearables to work. And not by just a few early-adopter companies, but by 93% of the respondents of a recent market research study commissioned by Upskill, formerly APX Labs.
Download “The State of Enterprise Wearables,” where you’ll learn about report findings that suggest:
- The breadth and range of use cases is truly impressive, and it is strongest in more ‘blue-collar’ segments.
- Companies are aggressive adopters – half of them have pilots or production deployments now – because it opens up new ways to solve old problems.
- The underlying driver of this activity are big ROI expectations. There is an across-the-board strong belief that wearables can reduce errors, improve safety, and lower costs.
- On average companies say that almost half their employees can benefit from using these devices for their job. There are very few other technologies that have that kind of reach.
