In recent years, many manufacturers have turned to emerging technologies like Augmented Reality (AR) or Artificial Intelligence (AI) to solve challenges such as the imminent skills gap or the need to improve productivity and quality. What’s mostly overlooked though are the opportunities these technologies provide to connect and augment manufacturing workers to create sustainable value throughout the organization using a connected worker platform.

Leveraging AR and AI in a holistic manner allows manufacturing organizations to augment their frontline workforce with interactive and personalized instructions while also capturing human-centric activities that provide new insights into improving productivity, quality, and training.

Building these solutions on a dependable cloud infrastructure like Microsoft Azure means building on a foundation that provides a rich set of built-in connectivity and security features, which enable reliable and secure bidirectional communication.

In this on-demand webinar, you’ll learn how you can leverage the synergies between Augmentir and Microsoft to successfully move your manufacturing business to the digital world and:

  • Empower workers with personalized and dynamic work instructions to perform at their peak productivity
  • Close the skills gap by capturing tribal knowledge from experts and making that knowledge a scalable corporate asset
  • Use AI-based insights to continuously improve the performance of your frontline workforce
  • Get Microsoft’s perspective on emerging technology trends in manufacturing
