Remote Assistance

IFS Remote Assistance is a merged reality solution blending a remote expert with another person to instantly diagnose, solve and validate issues. Remote experts can support customers, technicians or engineers in inaccessible locations, even from thousands of miles away. It means your experts can be anywhere, instantly.

The user-friendly interface results in minimal training and fast deployment, meaning it can be up and running in days and delivering almost instant value to your business.

Merged reality for real-time collaboration

IFS Remote Assistance merges two real time video streams, blending a remote expert with someone who needs support in another location. It provides an interactive help session in a collaborative, virtual reality environment to accelerate and simplify problem diagnosis and resolution.

Experts can be hands on and virtually reach out and touch what their customer or field technician sees in their field of view. They can telestrate, freeze images, use hand gestures, share pictures, or even add real objects such as specialist tools into this merged reality environment.
