Samsung Electronics and SAP agreed this week to jointly develop mobile applications for B2B companies in retail, petrochemical, finance and health care.
The agreement will “integrate payments to be made on-to-go, along with helping to shed light on innovative shopping experiences for consumers and retailers alike,” a joint statement said.
“While weaving wearables into the SAP ecosystem may yield more efficient business operations, the companies are hailing the program’s safety benefits,” said a story in Datamation. “For oil and gas customers, the companies said they plan to ‘extend SAP software integration to Samsung wearables to create a hands-free user experience that allows field workers in heavy industries to receive information and respond more quickly and safely to urgent issues with minimal disruption to their work.'”
