About the Technology

For manufacturers of high-value equipment for transportation, aerospace, agriculture, mining and other  industries, the quality of after-sale support is a key differentiator and critical to a company’s competitiveness.
Customers’ demand for increased asset uptime and for rapid response times to service mission-critical equipment are fundamental challenges faced by teams providing in-field service.
This is made all-the-more challenging with increasing product complexity, an aging workforce and a requirement to manage or reduce costs.
Best-in-class companies are facing these challenges with technologies that leverage the “Internet of Things” to offer efficient tools for mobile video collaboration, bringing experts into the field virtually to rapidly and efficiently respond to customers’ service needs.
