TIme and skills are both valuable. Maximise the efficiency of your field engineers and support staff with AR.
Support white gloves remotely with much greater effectiveness, giving them the ability to produce an image or draw the solution in the field of view, set against the real objects.
Education & Training
Immersive learning experiences at all levels from primary school to highly skilled surgeries offer amazing advantages in how we learn.
This can take the form of the learner wearing a VR headset and being immersed in a "world" in which they are learning or it can be a technician being trained by seeing in his AR specs an overlay of the real world data and/or receiving guidance from a remote trainer.
From online retail improvements which create better customer choices (virtual try-on) to deep experiential enablement with 360° viewing (with AR overlays for extra info) - mixed reality experiences offer major selling tool innovations.
Design & Plan
Walk THROUGH your design instead of viewing it in 2 dimensions and needing to guess how it will feel, and then take your client through your vision for their space.
Then choose finishes with overlay imagery from online catalogues.
Don't be sidetracked by the use of avatars. The driver for this is the power of remotely collaborating together IN an environment rather than ON a whiteboard, and avatars are just a necessary part of establishing this (as the tech cannot deliver a real-time 360° view of you). We may even come to like them!
Invite people INTO your website or contact center and not TO it.
Sit anywhere but be surrounded by websites, Microsoft Teams, and your spreadsheets and dashboards - you now have 360° degrees to work with - not a desk with a display.
