Augmented Reality for Customer Support

Augmented Reality (AR) is the latest innovation by Xerox to transform their client’s user experience. Now, instead of waiting on your IT team to replace a toner cartridge or waste collector, or to resolve a paper jam, with Xerox CareAR, any user can be supported online through their phone or tablet

Act fast, Act now!

It’s all about delivering better results, faster. Augmented reality (AR) is making help desks more effective because customer service agents can leverage the efficiency of this cutting-edge technology.

It’s so easy with a remote engineer! They can guide you just as if they were at your office and help to fix the issues faster. Now you can be up and running with the minimum of delay.

What is Augmented Reality?

A camera is at the heart of an augmented reality experience. The technology creates an interactive user experience in which digital images of the real world are continuously overlaid with computer-generated images, sometimes in 3D.

AR technology has become the latest example of how the most innovative companies can provide remote support to their customers. Indeed, augmented reality (AR) is making help desks more effective because customer service agents can leverage the efficiency of this cutting-edge technology. It’s all about delivering better results, faster.

How does CareAR® work?

CareAR® Assist enables the Xerox support team to provide annotated guidance using interactive graphics which are displayed in the user’s video feed. Being able to point to a paper drawer, or highlight which part of the machine to open to change a toner cassette is so much faster than trying to explain ‘’blind”.

A circle, arrow, or text note overlaid onto the live video feed makes everything come to life. Not only that, but the system recognises the device in 3D, so even as the user moves their phone or tablet, the annotation remain positioned appropriately. The result is faster diagnosis and problem resolution.

CareAR Augmented Reality user experience

  • Your Xerox customer service agent can see what you see! It’s an immersive experience via the feed of your phone or tablet’s rear video camera, enabling the engineer to see exactly what you’re seeing.
  • With guidance in real-time, the customer is navigated to solve problems through annotations such as arrows, pulsating circles, live chat text boxes, and numerous other features overlaid onto the live video.
  • Because it’s augment reality, the annotations become fixed to the appropriate place on the machine, even as you move your camera around. Even if you move away entirely, when you point your phone at the printer again, all of the notes are perfectly positioned.
  • Data protection and privacy are of huge importance, and that’s why only the rear-facing camera is used, leaving the user invisible.
