This whole operational process often faces many challenges, leading the board to seek more efficient solutions. The use of smart glasses enables real-time access to various information and data, this makes it possible to maximize engagement and increase workforce efficiency. The hands-free feature also provides greater flexibility for workers while they are performing their tasks. Moreover, increasing the productivity of the workforce affects the minimization of risks and errors that can cause disruption of the entire operating process. 

Knowledge Sharing

One of the many challenges that businesses of various fields are facing today is the shortage of a skilled workforce due to various factors. Technical positions are an important chain for the performance of any business. At the same time, these are also positions that require numerous investments mainly in the training of the workforce. Remote Assistance integrated on smart glasses helps businesses to have a skilled workforce and reduce the cost of expensive and inefficient training. In addition, Remote Assistance through smart glasses provides the right information to an unskilled on-site operator through step by step guidance. Through this guidance on-site operators are able to accomplish tasks such as assembling, repair, or maintenance procedures in a correct way. 

Training and Safety

Another effective use case of smart glasses is the training of the current workforce or new employees. While training a large group of employees located all around the world, AR smart glasses eases the adoption process of new employees to the new work environment and tasks.

This is what makes smart glasses with remote assistance the safest way to collaborate in real-time with a distant expert.
