This new technology will be introduced in Riyadh, Jeddah, and Dammam to bolster the technology already available in the servicing centres. This will help Juffali Commercial Vehicles set the standards of servicing across the region and deliver the best possible experiences for the customer and utilise unique problem-solving methods that can only be found in Juffali Commercial Vehicles.
WHAT IS XASSIST?
Adding XAssist into the daily routines of engineers would help provide them with on-the-go assistance wherever they need it. For example, the XAssist can assist in using AR, where the user wears Smart Glass technology to show what they are working on to another person on the other side while still being able to use both hands to work.
The device is fitted with two cameras: one focused on the face and the other being a first-person view of the user. XAssist would then be able to connect to an expert who could see and assist the user with what they would need help with. Moreover, XAssist also comes with many advantages that could be useful in many situations.
With XAssist, employees would be able to connect and show the problem to
Using XAssist, production downtime can be significantly reduced should a problem occur. Employees would be able to connect and show the problem to an expert who could assist from a distance. This would help save time by eliminating the time it would take to have an expert see the situation physically. Additionally, AR markers can be placed in specific places to help clarify the expert’s instructions. Furthermore, multiple people could join the call, providing a way for external support should it be needed.
HOW CAN XASSIST BE USED?
Depending on the situation, XAssist can be used to connect to experts to help find a solution to the problem. This would create faster response times and reduce the time needed to come to a solution. The end-user would be able to connect to the engineer immediately, who could see the problem first hand, and explain the solution to the user without having to leave their office.
Should the problem be more advanced, third-party experts could also join and analyse the situation with all parties involved.
Through the use of XAssist, productivity levels can be kept high by reducing the amount of time that is needed for an expert to see the situation. In addition, the analysis of the problem can be further sped up by using AR, where markers can be placed to ease the process of providing instructions to the user. The advantages of XAssist can also be extended to the customers, where they can be provided a smoother experience in servicing that is unmatched in the region.
