AR solution to help manufacturers to continue during pandemic

Librestream, a Canadian provider of remote collaboration and communication solutions, has announced a free program for companies facing business continuity and worker safety challenges related to COVID-19.

The company's Onsight platform, which has been deployed by hundreds of companies in sectors like aviation, defence, manufacturing, energy and inspection companies, enables much greater operational efficiency, reductions in carbon footprint and improved worker safety.

"The sudden onset of this pandemic means managers haven’t had time to prepare for the new reality we are facing with the novel coronavirus,” said John Bishop, president and chief executive officer of Librestream. “Many are scrambling to find safe, cost effective ways to ensure business continuity. Onsight is already helping hundreds of companies overcome distance barriers and keep workers safe. With this free program, we can extend the same opportunity to any organisation.”

Librestream built its Onsight platform to cater for the needs of deskless workers and provides the ability to collaborate securely across and within field environments including those where bandwidth and network connectivity is most challenged - such as a basement over cellular or an offshore oil rig over satellite.

Use cases can range from remote inspections of critical equipment and diagnostic assessments to telemedicine consults. Many organisations have announced travel/visitation bans to protect workers, making it impossible to work the traditional way. Instead, they are using platforms like Onsight to work remotely while still maintaining the benefits of an in-person meeting including content markup, sharing visual and audio assets. Use of the Onsight software by existing Librestream customers has multiplied over seven times in the last month as businesses adjust to travel and other restrictions.

Onsight Connect remote expert software runs on smartphones, tablets, smart glasses, wearables and computers for a consistent, flexible and secure experience in the field.

Librestream will provide its Onsight Connect remote expert package to qualified organisations who are new to this capability. The package includes pre-configured Onsight Connect remote expert software and materials to get up and running within 24 hours.

To initiate the qualification, organisations will need to fill out their information online and agree to provide feedback. There is no commitment to purchase of any kind. In addition, Librestream is offering no charge, virtual training sessions. .
