The interaction, though extendable via voice commands, is limited to tapping and scrolling

Big Data at a glance
We define the power of an app by the impact it has on our customers’ business. This is where our intelligent sales algorithms come into play.
Big Data algorithms work seamlessly in the background and discover new products the customer is most likely to purchase. They also find out which products have reached re-order point and how many of each item the customer should purchase.
Huge quantities of data are filtered by algorithms, so that only the most promising opportunities make their way to the Glass App. This enables quick decisions and effective actions.
Salespeople get new and relevant sales opportunities when they are most needed.
