Alphabet commissioned a small group to develop a version for the workplace. The team lives in Alphabet’s X, the moonshot factory division, where Glass was first developed as a passion project of Google cofounder Sergey Brin. Now the focus was on making a practical workplace tool that saves time and money. Announced today, it is called Glass Enterprise Edition.
For about two years, Glass EE has been quietly in use in dozens of workplaces, slipping under the radar of gadget bloggers, analysts, and self-appointed futurists. Meanwhile, Alphabet has been selling hundreds of units of Glass EE, an improved version of the product that originally shipped in a so-called Explorer Edition.
Glass for work is sleeker, tougher and foldable
Companies testing EE—including giants like General Electric, Boeing, DHL, and Volkswagen USA—have measured huge gains in productivity and noticeable improvements in quality. What started as pilot projects are now morphing into plans for widespread adoption in these corporations. Workers who need real-time information—and both hands free—were natural beneficiaries of what Glass had to offer. Other businesses, like medical practices, are introducing Enterprise Edition in their workplaces to transform previously cumbersome tasks.

Google Glass at Work Certified Partners
Google heard from hundreds of enterprise developers who are creating Glassware to help businesses reach their goals and today they announced first round of Glass at Work Certified Partners. If you want to see some of the work these partners are doing, check out:
- Augmedix: Augmedix is trying to ‘rehumanize’ doctor/patient relations using Google Glass. When you put on Google Glass to collect and reference that information, it helps you engage with the patient better.
Augmedix is working with Dignity Health so that doctors can spend less time on their computers and more time with patients. Doctors spend over a third of their day pushing and pulling information to and from the Electronic Health Record. Augmedix provides a service for doctors that allows them to reclaim this time and refocus it on what matters most: patient care.
Using Google Glass and Augmedix allows doctors to spend more time with patients by eliminating the distraction of entering information into a patient’s electronic medical record on the computer. This helps in giving more focused attention to patients and results in a better patient experience.
