Librestream Identified as Top Augmented Reality Service Provider by Independent Research Firm
Verdantix, an independent research and consulting firm that focuses on innovative technologies for optimized business operations, conducted a study that assessed the offerings of 27 augmented reality remote assistance solution providers. The assessment was based on the four main use cases and eight primary capabilities that are critical success within industrial environments.
Librestream was one of only four providers that met all four use cases identified by Verdantix as below:
- Commissioning and installation
- Inspections and field surveying
- Just in time learning / training
- Troubleshooting for maintenance, servicing and repair
Furthermore, Librestream was ranked #1 in the study’s primary capability comparison, scoring a near-perfect score of 29/32. The eight capabilities that Verdantix recommends enterprises consider as part of their vendor selection include:
- Low bandwidth functionality in areas with poor communications infrastructure.
- Secure connection between user and remote expert
- Device agnostic software which offers a similar experience across all platforms
- Conference calling with three or more participants
- Integration with existing systems
- Work instruction creator for step-by-step guidance
- Offline features for areas with no internet connectivity
- Analytics which incorporate usage statistics, AI, and machine learning algorithms
