Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI) announced Friday that its M-Series smart glasses now support Oculogx, a provider of omnichannel order fulfillment software designed for increased productivity.
Oculogx recently launched its suite of out-of-the-box products that make order fulfillment faster and more accurate. The Oculogx solution is suitable for storefronts, warehouses and retail stores and includes support for wearables to enable hands-free order picking, real-time order management, analytics, and a mobile fulfillment application.
The Oculogx suite consists of Ocx One, Outline and Portal, New York-based Vuzix noted.

Ocx One is a hands-free order fulfillment software built on an ecosystem of wearable devices and is designed to increase the efficiency of the workforce powered by smart glasses hardware.
Vuzix said its smart glasses with Ocx One empower employees with a customized AR-driven interface and inventory management insights to pick orders more quickly. Associates can communicate with Ocx One through voice and gesture, which shaves time off every order and enables a hands-free experience. In addition, the system offers step-by-step tutorials that guide employees for a rapid and seamless onboarding process.
Using the Oculogx technology suite, a large international grocer's order fulfillment process became 18% more efficient, 17% more accurate and offered a 2,600% internal rate of return over two years compared to its previous handheld technology strategy.
Ocx Outline, a simple order fulfillment mobile application, helps organize operations for lean, fast-growing enterprises.
Unlike Ocx One, Outline's zero-infrastructure is implemented on mobile devices, even allowing employees to bring their own devices to fulfill orders instantly. The modularized plug-and-play application is built for a retailer's individual process to ensure customized, simple and effective tracking and fulfillment.
Ocx Portal, an order management platform, offers real-time fulfillment status and high-level analytics.
Portal's data acts as the mothership for Ocx One and Outline, improving legacy systems for retailers of any size. The system receives orders and maps the retailer's facility to create an efficient picking plan that increases employee pick rates. With Portal, retailers can manage employees at any given time through a cloud-based infrastructure and run reports and visualizations offline to always monitor workforce success.
"Vuzix is excited to support the launch of Oculogx's disruptive order fulfillment software platform that has already been proven to deliver measurable benefits related to order fulfillment, accuracy and internal rate of return over a two-year span at a large international grocer,” said Vuzix CEO Paul Travers in a statement.
“We look forward to further collaboration with Oculogx to support the growing trend of e-commerce curbside delivery across big-box stores and other retailers.”
