Trimble launches mobile augmented reality tool to optimize  service

Trimble PULSE Remote Expert is an augmented reality (AR) tool that improves the productivity of field service technicians by connecting them with support experts via video, audio and spatial annotations in real-time.

The AR tool provides remotely-located users with a shared, live view using the camera on a smart phone. Both users can add digital annotations, such as text or drawings, directly to the live view by accessing a simple menu displayed on the smartphone screen. Digital annotations can be especially helpful when trying to communicate complex information remotely, or if either user is working in a loud environment. 
 
Trimble PULSE Remote Expert enables businesses across a range of industries, including construction, agriculture, telecommunications and utilities, to rapidly connect remote experts with technicians in the field. It is a simple and powerful application for technicians who require real-time assistance when facing complex or unfamiliar situations, and ultimately helps to improve first-time fix rates, technician productivity and the overall customer service experience. 

"Many organizations are looking for new and improved ways of connecting their field workers," said John Cameron, general manager of Trimble's Field Service Management Division. "An aging workforce and skill shortages are adding complexity to the service workflow and organizations are looking for innovative ways to address the challenges."

Opening New Windows into Remote Asset Management and Worker Safety with Satellite Communications

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
