What’s the business benefit of wearable technology? Inspired by the consumer market, we have evolved our mobile offering with solutions designed for wearable technology. Imagine project managers receiving notifications on changes in important purchase orders on their smart watches. At IFS, this scenario is a reality. Users are able to receive instant notifications on devices such as smart watches when an item in IFS Applications has changed.
IFS Labs is also working on solutions for smart glasses that will let users superimpose business data retrieved from IFS Applications on the real world. Imagine field service technicians using smart glasses to view pertinent onsite assignment data as a virtual overlay. Collaborating with leading tech providers like Microsoft, Sony and XMReality, IFS is exploring how to maximize the business value of smart glasses. Empowering our customers to stay close to, and in control of, their businesses is one of our most central drivers.
