Enhancing workforce training with AR

Linda Malecaj Article

Nowadays, with the revolution that is happening in the industries of different types, there is also the need for new training programs that can equip the workforce to work in the new environment. Experts from various industries already faced the rapid emergence of new technologies that can increase engagement and effectiveness. One of these technologies is Augmented Reality (AR)  which is quickly becoming an alternative technology for training programs. Augmented Reality is providing highly efficient solutions, from corporate training in areas to hands-on learning in sectors such as manufacturing and healthcare. Day by day there are numerous use cases of implementing this technology. 

Let’s take a step closer to Augmented Reality training and have a detailed look at the many benefits that this technology offers.

Providing Real-Time Information

Augmented Reality by integrating into smart glasses enables employees who are being trained to receive instruction in real-time and at the same time to practice their gained knowledge safely and free hands. Dates and instructions received in real-time make it possible to increase the trained and specialized workforce and eliminate the need to look for a more qualified workforce while saving time and costs.

Remote Support

Complex technical tasks to be performed by field workers can be unusual and incomprehensible,  at this moment connection with a remote support expert is most needed. The Remote Support that has been made possible through Augmented Reality allows the sharing of files such as pdf, images, and 3D objects and making a great contribution in enriching this distant collaboration. Remote support is based on the “See what I see” principle and this is what makes it possible to have a more trained and skilled workforce.

New Employee Onboarding

Augmented Reality is not valid for training only the current workforce. Also, new employees through this technology have the opportunity to receive all the specific information needed to perform new tasks. Everything makes it possible to accelerate as much as possible the adaptation process of these workers to the new work environment and tasks.

In summary, Augmented Reality is an excellent opportunity to improve the training and specialization of the workforce, even in large groups. VSight Remote already is providing the feature for training large groups and offers unique capabilities to engage the workforce with digital information around them. The peculiarity lies in the fact that during this type of training up to 3000 people can participate in the same session led by an expert who is defined as the host of the admin panel. Effective collaboration is also enabled by the so-called raise hand feature, which enables the trained workforce to respond to ambiguities that may be encountered during the training.
