ViiBE’s integration with RealWear creates a seamless support experience with video assistance. In the technically-complex use cases where RealWear is used, on-site technicians may experience issues that can only be resolved by specialised experts. In these instances, companies can troubleshoot problems remotely with ViiBE to avoid machine downtime and expert displacements. This integration is a game-changer for HSE requirements. Combining ViiBE’s platform with RealWear’s hardware empowers workforces by allowing them to collaborate at a distance while having both hands free.
