Remote expert guidance with industrial head wearables
Frontline workers can easily connect with remote experts in real-time, from anywhere, using optimized video collaboration applications
Organizations are facing evolving challenges when connecting remote teams with the critical information whenever they need it. The peer-to-peer information must be accurate, shared with a distributed workforce, secure and often delivered in real-time. Meanwhile, travel restrictions, globally dispersed stakeholders and different company regulations augment the growing logistical obstacles for remote expert guidance for businesses with frontline workers.
These challenges impact many of today’s remote teams. Frontline workers who are often in the most hazardous environments need to safely and efficiently connect with remote experts, other team members as well as partners and clients — sometimes in different cities, time-zones and countries. Whether it’s training, equipment repair, data analysis or other mission-critical tasks, these remote teams require a truly innovative remote collaboration and expert guidance solution that’s built for modern businesses.
Unplanned downtime is expensive, incurring huge losses while waiting for an expert to arrive and fix the issue.
Remote experts can seamlessly connect with field technicians to help get machines back online faster.
Flying an expert to a job site is costly and in some cases impossible due to COVID-19 restrictions.
With RealWear assisted reality solutions, improve service levels and reduce travel costs.
Face-to-face assistance cannot scale across the enterprise. Skills gap in industries is widening with ineffective and slow knowledge transfer from the retiring workforce.
One remote mentor can help many onsite workers. RealWear devices can help the workforce with hands-on experience that is proven to be more effective than traditional methods of training.
Remote expert guidance industrial use cases
- Auto servicing & repair
- Test & inspection
- Maintenance & repair
- Manufacturing & assembly
Live video collaboration
Hands-free, real-time access
Some organizations will attempt to assemble various solutions such as mobile tablets, hand-held cameras and smartphones. Unfortunately, this is not always the ideal approach. Many frontline technicians are often in loud, hazardous, industrial environments — some in outdoor locations where rain, dust, snow and heat are frequent factors. It’s not safe for these front-line technicians to use these devices, which are not designed for these environments and situations. Many technicians also need their hands to work, so operating and carrying these additional devices can be dangerous and inefficient.
