Transform enterprise collaboration and productivity with AR tools

 

AR live streaming

Using Zoho Lens, a technician can access and view the live camera stream of a customer in real time. In this way, your customer support teams can view hardware issues faced by a customer, pause the camera stream to analyze critical areas, and diagnose the problem right from their desk. They can go a step further by sharing their camera stream for live demos or walkthroughs of the solution.

 

AR annotations

Team members who are involved in prototyping, assembly, or maintenance need live visuals and spatial aids for accurate conclusions. Zoho Lens allows them to collaborate with precision by placing annotations directly on the camera stream. They can mark the exact points on the screen, draw and highlight with tools like the pencil tool, rectangular tool, and elliptical tool, or erase all markings with the clear screen option.

 

AR comments

While it's easy to add annotations and convey instructions, it takes time for remote users to execute each step, increasing the chances that they can lose track of the progress that’s been made. AR comments allow engineers to add annotation-specific instructions by selecting an individual arrow and adding a note to it, empowering team members to follow instructions at their own pace.

 

Multi-technician support

Shop-floor issues may require multiple skillsets from within or outside the factory for a holistic solution. Zoho Lens provides multi-technician support, where engineers can call upon many colleagues or external experts during a remote assistance session by sending email or SMS invites. All invited participants will have access to AR tools for faster and better collaboration.

 

File transfer via chat

Factory managers involved in remote training or collaboration can support their instructions with images, videos, and presentations by sharing them as attachments in the session chat. Participants can download and view these files on their device and even send back images or documents for feedback purposes. Once the session ends, the chat, along with the files, will be automatically synced to the cloud.

 

Session notes

Technicians working in assembly and maintenance processes can take notes of inconsistencies or equipment improvement needs using session notes. They can also keep a record of the repair work done in a session, or make a list of required parts for the next repair session. Once the session ends, the notes will be available in the file manager section, which the technician can download for future reference.

 

Snapshots

Engineers and trainers can document specific events or issues during their remote AR sessions by using the snapshot tool in the session. They can capture unlimited snapshots at any time during the session and freeze a particular snapshot to be viewed by all participants, which can then be annotated upon for further analysis and discussions

 

Session recording

Issues and fixes are inevitable in the manufacturing process, and learning from past mistakes helps to optimize operations quickly. Engineers and technicians can use the session recording feature to document issues during a session and create a knowledge trail for future references. Super admins can also enable automatic recording of sessions initiated within the organization for audit purposes.

 

Virtual code reader

Logistics and maintenance teams dealing with equipment and machine parts need to spend less time retrieving technical details for better throughput and repairs. Zoho Lens allows them to scan any QR code or barcode without switching apps during the session. The details retrieved from the scan can be sent to the relevant source instantly, or even saved to session notes for future reference.

 

Live text

Frontline technicians can sometimes lack the information they need while solving assembly line issues. They need help accessing information that is mostly found in extensive instruction manuals. Supervisors can scan specific instructions from these manuals using live text and send it to on-site technicians through the session chat for faster problem-solving.

   

Powerful features that every business needs in enterprise AR software

 

Smart glass support

Many manufacturers opt for AR-supported, head-mounted displays (HUDs) to increase enterprise productivity and safety. Zoho Lens has integrated with Epson, Realwear, and Vuzix, allowing the wearer to broadcast the camera stream to the expert and receive guidance while working hands-free.

 

APIs and mobile SDK

With Zoho Lens' APIs and mobile SDK, you can integrate remote assistance capabilities into your native app and unlock augmented reality for your industrial enterprise at a minimal cost and a reduced learning curve. Employees can start a Lens session or join a session right from your native app.

 

Security

For any enterprise, organization security is a high priority among other factors while adapting to innovative technologies. In compliance with GDPR and SEC guidelines, Zoho Lens offers industry-standard SSL and 256-bit AES protocols, ensuring secure connections and guaranteeing data protection.

 

Rebranding

Brand perception is key for enterprises, and any alteration to that image can impact their overall business. Keeping this in mind, Zoho Lens offers a special feature called rebranding, where you can use your company's name, logo, favicon, and a customized portal URL, and even configure the emails that are sent to your customers.

 

Session analytics

With session analytics in Zoho Lens, super admins get a macro dashboard of all activities carried out in the organization. Metrics such as session time, duration, and IP addresses of the devices can give a micro view of the performance of the organization, leading to valuable insights for further improvements.

 

File management

Enterprises handle all sorts of information, ranging from basic organization information to sensitive customer data. Zoho Lens automatically stores and organizes session files such as notes, recordings, snapshots, and chat in the File manager, while other activities are recorded under the Action Log Viewer for better transparency and accountability.

 

User management

Organizations need a reliable system to manage users, control information access, and limit permissions to company-wide actions. Zoho Lens allows you to have as many technicians as you want, whom you can put in specific departments and restrict access to certain options in your organization portal.
