Christmas specialist, Santa Global, has released a new online slideshow showcasing the technological innovations behind the Christmas build-up, which have been developed in conjunction with Stocker Partnership—the company’s strategic innovation partner.

“With the help of Stocker Partnership we have trialled a number of technological improvements over the last twelve months,” reveals Santa Claus, CEO of Santa Global. “This has helped us streamline our operations and increase efficiency, so we are in great shape going into our busiest period of the year!”

Amongst the innovations taken up at Santa Global’s North Pole headquarters is a company-wide trial of Google Glass. Warehouse elves have been using the head-mounted computers to increase efficiency and Santa will benefit from the system’s voice-activated navigation and delivery data—as well as solar-glare protecting lenses—during his crucial Christmas Eve flight. Another development is the eReindeer programme, which has implanted chips in reindeer antlers to track in-flight performance as well as vital measurements such as body temperature and heart rate. On the ground, LED-embedded workwear for elves has led to greater visibility during the long Arctic nights and fewer accidents.

These are just some of the exciting range of innovations in place at Santa Global HQ. For the full story, please view the SlideShare below:

“Santa Global is a very forward thinking company and it has been a real privilege to work with the team during the past year,” comments Matt Stocker, Director of Stocker Partnership. “From Santa right down to the wrapping elves we have found everyone to be receptive to our ideas and the concept of change. That has made our job a lot easier and we are delighted to have helped with a number of strategic recommendations that have already transformed operations up at the North Pole. Of course, the proof is in the pudding but everyone is confident that Christmas 2013 is set to be the company’s most successful in its 1,700 year history!”
