As of mid-2019, DAQRI’s customers had purchased and were integrating over 700 units of this state-of-the-art technology in their warehouses, manufacturing facilities and in the field. Numerous customers conducted initial field testing resulting in 30-50% increases in workforce efficiency and accuracy when completing critical tasks. This uptick in performance saves critical resources and prevents costly downtime and user error that often occur when completing tasks without the DAQRI technology.
