Challenges in the field of technical service at Evonik
Evonik Industries AG is a global leader in speciality chemicals and is represented with production facilities in 26 countries. This makes it a challenge to provide the knowledge of experts at locations worldwide and to guarantee fast service. The experts with the required, specific knowledge are often not located directly at the source of error and have to travel to solve the problem. In the meantime, production facilities break down and work is interrupted until the expert has solved the problem on site. This costs time and money.
Solution through the use of Support at Evonik
Video Support based on the innovative Adtance Smart Service platform enables experts to remotely connect in real time. The platform allows simplified communication between an expert in the head office and an employee in the field, so that the expert can participate in the problem solving process by providing assistance. This communication can take place by using data glasses of our partner RealWear as well as tablets, smartphones or other smart devices with access to the Internet.
