Developing Enterprise Augmented Reality Proof of Concepts

Posted by Mark Hemmer on 2/20/17 10:30 AM

Before the enterprise can start utilizing augmented reality to its full potential, it's going to need a proof of concept. Developing enterprise augmented reality is a process that involves discovering a viable use case, building a proof of concept, and then delivering on it. That's no small task and the enterprise often has to look outside its walls for help. When reaching out for help, it is important that the enterprise find a research and development company with experience in augmented reality. AR is still considered an emerging technology and learning how to successfully develop enterprise-grade applications doesn't happen quickly. It takes a focused team and a diverse background in leveraging technology to solve real-world business challenges.

Augmented Reality Ideas That Can Improve the Patient Experience

Posted by Mark Hemmer on 2/1/17 10:00 AM

When it comes to health care, there are many things to consider: treatment types, cost, insurance plans, and more. But, one of the most important things for a health care provider is the patient experience. For those providing health care and those receiving it, the patient experience goes a long way towards defining 'success' in the field. The positive result of treatment is obviously at the top of the priority list. However, everything around that result makes up the patient experience. From hospital wayfinding, to waiting room comfort, to keeping children entertained, the patient experience determines how people feel about their health care provider. One relatively untapped technology that can assist with the patient experience is augmented reality.

Augmented reality enhances the physical world with digital information and imagery. It has uses in almost every industry, but there are few augmented reality ideas in the works that will definitely improve the patient experience

Augmented Reality in the Enterprise Can Cut Training Costs

Posted by Mark Hemmer on 12/21/16 10:00 AM

For the enterprise, training will always be an important topic of conversation. Because employee turnover is uncertain, training costs are uncertain and training costs can be huge. That's an unknown variable in the budget (the type of thing that keeps upper management drenched in cold sweat). The need to cut costs in training is ever-present and there are still options out there that are largely ignored by the enterprise. One such option: Augmented Reality.

How To Use Augmented Reality For Training

Posted by Mark Hemmer on 10/3/16 10:00 AM

You've likely heard this before: 'It costs more to hire a new employee than it does to retain current employees.' In addition to being a compelling case for upping your employee retention rate, it raises some interesting questions. Namely, why? While there are a handful of reasons for the higher cost (advertising for the open position, for example), the most interesting among them could be this: "Training cost. For example, over 2-3 years a business likely invests 10-20% of an employee's salary or more in training." That investment in training is necessary, but can press uncomfortably against budgetary limits. Training is typically expensive due to training materials (printed guide books, instruction manuals, etc.), training personnel, and the use of machinery and equipment (that could otherwise be put to work).

4 Business Cases for Augmented Reality in the Enterprise

Posted by Jason Parkinson on 7/12/16 11:30 AM
Pokemon Go has exploded onto the national scene in the past week. The game uses Augmented Reality to put the power of being a Pokemaster into the hands of users. Utilizing GPS, your smartphone tells you where you can find Pokemon in the 'wild' and you set out to catch them in real life environments (whether that's the bathroom, your office, or a local coffeeshop). 
 
While AR clearly has enormous potential for games that people can't bring themselves to put down ( even if it's dangerous!), Augmented Reality also has real business cases - applications that could transform how industries function. While gamers are busy trying to 'Catch 'Em All,' business owners are starting to catch on...
