The new customer intends to use two of the company's platforms for marketing and education purposes.

NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (NTAR:CSE; NEXCF:OTCQB) announced in a news release it signed a deal with new customer Sterilis Solutions for both NexTech's WebAR and AR University offerings.

U.S.-based Sterilis Solutions manufactures a 1,100 pound machine that turns regulated medical waste into confetti that is safe for throwing away in the trash.

For NexTech, this contract represents its entrance into the medical devices market, valued at an estimated $150 billion by Fortune Business Insights.

Sterilis Solutions will use NexTech's e-commerce augmented reality platform in marketing its product, specifically to highlight its primary functions both online and when the company's sales team members demonstrate the machine to dealers in Sterilis Solutions' global network.

To educate those dealers and their salespeople, this new NexTech customer will use AR University.

"AR is more powerful than a brochure, especially with the interaction," Sterilis Solutions CEO Andy Marshall said in the release.

"We are excited that Sterilis has adopted NexTech's powerful and industry-leading augmented reality offering to drive both its product marketing and client education activities," Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech stated. "Because our proprietary 3D augmented reality (3D/AR) solution and our AR learning tools work on any AR enabled mobile phone it will help Sterilis to vastly improve its product demonstration capabilities while significantly enhancing its ability to communicate key competitive features of its products at trade shows and really everywhere."

Gappelberg continued, "Sterilis has chosen NexTech as a key business growth partner. Unlike other AR/VR companies which charge a fortune and which often require special software and training, NexTech"s easy to use and monthly revenue-focused product suite allows its clients to do more and to sell more. All of this results in a stronger bottom line for our customers and recurring revenues for us."
