OneVision Resources Introduces AR-Powered Video Support
OneVision Resources has launched a live-streaming video tech support service enhanced by augmented reality. Taking the delivery of remote tech support to the next level, OneVision has integrated this powerful new capability into its service platform, improving the service experience for the 35,000+ homes it currently supports.
“Smart home technologies have evolved rapidly over a relatively short amount of time. Most consumers are not prepared to properly troubleshoot issues and end up frustrated or worse, giving up on the technology altogether," says OneVision’s founder and CEO Joseph Kolchinsky. "All too often, they can’t tell service specialists exactly what they are experiencing which leads to frustration and wasted time. With the introduction of this video-support tool, our offering has evolved to not just keep pace but lead the pack when it comes to providing world-class technology management in the home."
This enhancement to the OneVision offering gives its technology specialists several advantages. For instance, OneVision specialists will no longer have to rely on a homeowner’s perception or ability to accurately describe a technology issue. Instead, OneVision Specialists will now be able to see actual system status, including status lights and error messages, and can directly experience the issues consumers are facing, which enables faster resolution.
Acknowledging that home security, network security, and personal privacy are all critical issues, OneVision’s video-support tool uses a single-use access code that ensures the homeowner maintains control of the call, including when and if to enable a video session with the specialist. The homeowner determines what the specialist can see and has the option to turn off the remote support session at any time. As always, the networking monitoring software and appliances used by OneVision are protected with industry-leading security and encryption protocols.
The addition of AR-powered video support to the OneVision Platform is yet another illustration of the company’s market-leading position when it comes to delivering white-glove, emotionally intelligent, and technically knowledgeable service in a highly-efficient manner. OneVision specialists can now utilize this new tool during service and support events to collaboratively identify, analyze, and resolve issues with smart-home owners using the built-in camera on their iOS or Android mobile devices.
AR-powered video support supplements the industry-best remote monitoring, management, and troubleshooting practices already employed as part of their 24/7 white-label help-desk. This enables OneVision to provide a level of remote support and service unmatched in the industry, ensuring a positive a technology experience for consumers and a competitive edge for all integrators within the OneVision network.
Adding augmented reality capabilities to the concept of video support is not just about leveraging the latest tools to drive efficiency. For OneVision, this powerful technology is being harnessed to deliver an exceptional support experience for consumers. “OneVision’s new AR-powered video support offering makes the service experience more efficient, more effective, and more personalized. This represents the next phase in a rapidly evolving segment of the smart home service industry, where integrators must keep pace with technology to continue exceeding client expectations,” concludes Kolchinsky.
