Wax Digital in Manchester has created what it says is the world’s first smart watch-based procurement app.

SMARTWATCHThe Android-based software will be available this summer and should enable staff within an organisation to order goods, replenish stock, sign off purchase orders and approve invoices direct from their watches.

“What’s great about the smart watch solution is that it is has the ‘always on’ edge to it. Employees can wear the watch throughout their working day and quickly request new items whenever they’re needed,” explained Peter Kinder, CTO of Wax Digital.

“We’re always looking for innovative ways for our web3 software to be used and we’re keen to appeal to the growing interest in wearables which offer businesses multiple functional benefits and are likely to become a major corporate investment.”

The app will be enable users to make voice commands, scroll through products and purchase them.
