To continue its growth in the business-to-business application space, Salesforce added Epson Moverio, Jawbone UP, Meta Glasses, Oculus Rift and Vizix M100 Smart Glasses to its Salesforce Wear device ecosystem this month.
Launched in June, Salesforce Wear is a developer platform for wearable devices in the enterprise. It features the “Salesforce Wear Developer Pack,” which contains reference apps, demonstrations, open-source code and other documentation that allow wearable devices to connect to the company’s Salesforce1 platform, said Information Week news writer Shane O’Neil.
“Wearables are the next phase of the mobile revolution,” said Daniel Debow, SVP, emerging technologies, salesforce.com, in a statement from the company. “With Salesforce Wear, companies can now capture the massive opportunity these devices offer to connect with customers in new ways.”
The Salesforce Wear platform already supports Android Wear, ARM, Fitbit, Google Glass, Myo from Thalmic, Nymi from Bionym, OMSignal, Pebble, Philips and Samsung Gear 2, as well as several apps that focus on senior care patients, utility workers, customer service representatives and more, according to PCMag.com.
