The solution makes it easier for companies to secure these devices and deploy them across the enterprise. IT staff can easily configure RealWear devices for shared use or use by a single user and ensure that they are security compliant.

Partnership to improve frontline workforce collaboration with Microsoft Teams on RealWear

The new device management solution announced today further supports RealWear’s collaboration with Microsoft, which was announced last year when RealWear first announced that it would integrate Microsoft Teams with its Assisted Reality wearables.

Since then, industry leaders like Goodyear and Mars have quickly adopted RealWear Assisted Reality wearables and Microsoft Teams, so their frontline workers can collaborate hands-free with others, even in safety-critical industrial work environments. Year-over-year, from October 2020 to today, Teams adoption on RealWear has increased 251%, more than tripling the number of Teams users on the device.

“Before the pandemic, companies saw the value in providing their frontline workers with secure, fully hands-free, expert guidance from a distance while maintaining situational awareness. Lockdowns and travel restrictions then accelerated this trend as companies saw the tremendous benefits of collaboration in terms of safety and productivity, ”said Sanjay Jhawar, Co-Founder and President of RealWear. “With the new support for RealWear devices from Microsoft Endpoint Manager, organizations can now securely provision thousands of employees using a modern device owner management model with their smartphones and tablets.”

“Microsoft Endpoint Manager’s support for RealWear devices enables organizations to configure, provision, and secure RealWear devices with the same cloud-based platform that they use to manage devices that access corporate data,” said Steve Dispensa , Vice President of Enterprise Management at Microsoft.
