How Augmented Reality can help maintain Business Continuity affected by COVID-19 pandemic

In the recent weeks many organisations faced an unprecedented challenge in keeping employees from the spread of coronavirus while adapting their operations to continue their business.

Adapting to a new way of working remotely can be challenging for employees – especially those who work for industrial companies, many of which have globally-distributed employee populations, supply chains, and customer bases.

There are many ways technology can help in ensuring the safety of employees. We can work remotely, conducting meetings and delivering services virtually.

Augmented Reality for enterprise

Today’s industrial enterprises operate in highly competitive, complex, heavily regulated and global environments. Enterprise customers are driven by costs and therefore look for technology that saves or produces more than it costs to develop, implement and maintain. Industrial organisations are looking to increase revenue and optimise and enhance their operations with a view to minimising errors, downtime, training time and all other forms of cost and waste.

Augmented reality (AR) is one of the fastest growing segments of the technology market. To date, the most significant ROI in AR technologies has been in the enterprise landscape, where applications of AR are driving entirely new levels of workforce productivity

AR technology is transforming service and driving unprecedented value. From improving efficiency and knowledge transfer to hitting revenue targets and increasing profit margins.

Most importantly, AR enables workers to work and collaborate remotely, while adhering to social distancing rules.

Boundless Collaboration

AR collaborations combines video chat with annotation-sharing tools. This means that you and a partner can virtually mark-up objects and environments in 3D and real time. AR is reinventing remote service and eliminating costly communication gaps.

When pairs of partners accurately annotate a shared virtual environment, it’s easier to highlight details and guide multi-step solutions. AR application erases the margin of error—and potentially costly mistakes

More importantly AR applications reduce the travel burden on your in-house experts. When you need troubleshooting or expert guidance for situations not covered in training or service manuals, AR applications enable you to literally draw on a chalkboard.

Get it done right. Now.
