What is Augmented Reality?
Augmented reality (AR) is a type of interactive, reality-based display environment that takes the capabilities of computer generated display, sound, text and effects to enhance the user's real-world experience.
Augmented reality combines real and computer-based scenes and images to deliver a unified but enhanced view of the world.
Need of Augmented Reality…
Augmented reality (AR) technology is here now, and companies of all shapes and sizes are utilizing it to change the way work gets done and to drive better outcomes for themselves and their clients
Any service-based organizations should be among the first to embrace this new technology or they could face near-term disruption of their business. Beyond the service elements within a wide range of enterprises, we also see strong interest in AR inside of companies that have specific needs around knowledge transfer and training, sales and marketing, and manufacturing. When you sum these major groups together, the result is that a huge number of companies are already using AR.
AR technology is exciting because it brings real-world benefits to organizations left out of the digital transformation wave. Why? Because in many cases, the job to be done, the process to be revised, or the knowledge to be transferred requires at least one foot in the physical world and one foot in the digital world. AR helps bridge this gap by bringing digital assets into the real world — content viewable on mobile devices such as smartphones as well as using headsets that let workers engage with the content hands free. The result is that in the space of a few years, companies stuck with using paper-based processes, that are dealing with aging expert populations, or that have been looking for ways to iterate more rapidly in manufacturing have found the tools they need to move into the 21st century.
Benefits of Companies using AR:
Increased efficiency, including improved first-time fix rates
Training and improved knowledge transfer between employees
Enable hands-free work
Enable collaboration among teams/team members
Improve client-facing interactions
Drive better remote access processes
Lower travel costs
Offer design-focused employees more tools
For Manufacturing Companies:
To improve knowledge transfer between seasoned and new employees
To provide interactive, 3D digital service instructions
To display information, including service details, associated with a machine
"I see what you see" live videoconferencing
To display interface options not accessible on the physical machine
Savings Derived from AR Training:
Faster learning curve for trainees
Cost Savings Using AR for Sales and Marketing:
Higher win rates as customers can better visualize products
Reduced travel costs through shareable AR experiences
Reduced cost for building prototypes
Reduced sales motion complexity
Shorter sales cycles with access to product everywhere at any time
