Glasses for augmented reality are the latest tool introduced by SMI to make customer assistance easier, faster and smarter. Unlike the already existing services for remote technical support (Smycall, Smychat and Smypass Priority), the new glasses for augmented reality allow SMI help desk to give audiovisual assistance. This means that what the operator is seeing is displayed in real time on the computer screen of SMI help desk technician. This results in several advantages for the customer:
Cost and time saving on on-site interventions Glasses for augmented reality enable to provide customers with immediate support, no matter where the production plant is located. By this way, physical distance is removed by a system that virtually brings the operator and SMI help desk closer. This allows the customer to save on the costs of technical interventions, as well as on the time that SMI technician would take to reach the production plant.
Efficient troubleshooting Audiovisual assistance allows SMI help desk technician to guide the machine operator step by step. This leads to a quick problem identification and resolution. As a consequence, the machine downtime is considerably reduced and the productivity level remains high.
Easy-to-use tool Augmented reality glasses are extremely simple to use; once you have a Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac network connection and a valid license, you wear glasses and frame the QR code. At this stage you are put in contact with SMI help desk technician, who sees on his computer screen the same images that the machine operator is viewing. With this system the technician is able to provide the operator with an optimal support.
Immediate communication With this tool the operator doesn’t need to send heavy attachments or write long messages by email to receive assistance. Electrical diagrams and other documents that may be useful for the problem resolution are sent by SMI technician directly to the operator's glasses. Lastly, an audiovisual support allows to overcome any linguistic barriers.
