NSF International, which partnered with Google to pilot its EyeSucceed Smart Glasses, has been recognized as a ‘Glass Partner’ for food industry applications.

Glass is an enterprise where Glass devices and software are sold and supported exclusively through Glass Partners.

Evolving at a rapid pace

The accolade means the company can expand the application of Glass technology, addressing food safety and quality issues around the globe.

Working directly with the Google Glass team and foodservice operations on the Google campus, EyeSucceed has been piloting food industry applications of Glass, including remote food safety and quality audits, since February 2015.  

While we started developing these applications to support remote food safety and quality audits, we quickly realized assisted reality and wearable technology could address many other business challenges in the food industry,” said Tom Chestnut, co-founder, EyeSucceed.

Assisted reality and wearables will be disruptive technologies in the food industry, specifically in the realms of employee training, food safety and consistent execution at the operational level.

It is evolving at a rapid pace and will change forever how the food industry does business. We are thrilled to be a Glass Partner to continue to evolve applications across the food industry,” he said.

Google Cloud

EyeSucceed is currently testing additional food industry applications with NSF International clients in the US, Asia and Latin America, and EyeSucceed training applications and the initial mapping of data into the Google Cloud platform will start in Q4 2017.

GE was one of the first businesses to experience the benefits of Glass in the workplace. Now, there are more than 50 businesses, including AGCO, DHL, Dignity Health, NSF International, Sutter Health,The Boeing Company and Volkswagen, who have been using Glass to complete their work faster and more easily than before,” said Jay Kothari, project lead, Glass.

Based on feedback we’ve received from these customers in a special program we’ve been running for the past two years, we’re now making Glass Enterprise Edition available to more businesses through our network of partners.

Through its work with NSF International, EyeSucceed has expanded the application of Glass technology, addressing food safety and quality issues around the globe.”

Glass is a small, lightweight wearable computer with a transparent display that brings information into a person’s line of sight. In a work setting, it can be clipped onto glasses or industry frames like safety goggles so users don’t have to switch focus between what they are doing with their hands and the content they need to do their job.

Jennifer Tong, co-founder, EyeSucceed said: “The two primary gains of smart training and learning with wearable technology are the ability to train employees directly and unassisted at the workstation and to do it in a simple, hands-free manner.

Wearable devices like Glass are the trainers of the future, eliminating the high labor costs associated with peer-to-peer training, bringing greater efficiency and consistency to the workplace.”
