Ford offers the best-in-class customer experience with AR remote support

“Ford has led innovations in the past and within its brand purpose, placing costumers at the center of everything we do. We keep in the forefront of innovation, aiming for continuous improvements that exceed the needs and desires of our customers. As a result, we were able to understand what the market already offered, its trends related to cutting-edge technology, being a pioneer in the auto industry by implementing the pilot project using AR technology for remote diagnostic to support our dealerships. During our benchmarking, we found an excellent solution based on the use of POINTR. It’s a disruptive technology that brings a great benefit to our customers and substantially reduce the time of diagnosis while vehicles are getting repaired at the dealers. It can also increase the productivity and service capacity of the dealers, offering a better experience during our customers’ journey. This project is part of a broader strategy and it´s totally in line with the digital transformation promoted across Ford’s South America operations.” – Elton Miraveti, Ford South America Service Engineering Operations Manager

Industrial Remote Collaboration takes more than an Office Communication Tool

POINTR was developed from the very beginning for industrial use and that is showing in every feature. It is not an office communication tool that was later adapted for industrial use, as is the case with many competitors. We offer a different experience. One that is designed for industrial settings.

With customers like Ford, Mercedes Benz, Valmet, the Italian-American automotive giant CNH Industrial (CASE) and demo in another car and utility vehicle manufacturers such as Toyota, Volvo Cars, Audi, Troller, Volkswagen and Stellantis, POINTR dominates the Brazilian automotive industry as a provider of remote field service and remote collaboration.

POINTR is easy to deploy and it works in any environment and on any network connection, from 5G to satellite. In a country so large that it alone covers 47.3 per cent of the area of the South American continent, POINTR guarantees smooth communication in the national language Portuguese (as well as in 12 other Languages) and helps experts to share their knowledge immediately anywhere.
