Mobile user

Mobile users have access to the mobile app on the floor as a vital source of information about equipment. As a mobile user, you can:

  • Log in to the app using your name and password, or by scanning a QR code.
  • Locate the right piece of equipment in the app, either by selecting it from the full list of equipment, using a quick search to narrow down the list, or scanning a QR code from the equipment.
  • Acces the equipment detail page that displays all important information about the equipment, along with a list of guides and a list of experts.
  • Read guides to learn how to install, operate, maintain, or repair the equipment.
  • If the guides are not sufficient to solve a problem, use an augmented-reality video call to connect with a remote expert.


Experts provide assistance to junior colleagues remotely using AR video calls. As an expert, you can:

  • Start a web browser, log in to using your credentials.
  • Have read-only access to company data from the web application.
  • As long as you have notifications enabled, you can be reached by video calls, accept them on your PC.
  • During the call, you have access to several visual tools. You can draw freely into the AR scene or use 3D arrows to draw attention to important parts.

  • Using a web browser, log in to using your credentials.
