July 17, 2017 - IFS, a global enterprise applications company, announced the launch of a new proof of concept, developed by the company’s innovation think tank IFS Labs, to reinvent field service management.
IFS Labs has developed an integration between the enterprise applications suite IFS Applications and Microsoft HoloLens that enables service engineers to visualize holographic IFS software data on the HoloLens screen, which is plotted directly on the asset they are to service.
The data is displayed directly in front of the engineer’s eyes, enabling technicians to use both hands when servicing the asset. By displaying information as a real-time overlay, engineers get immediate access to relevant asset-specific data such as service history, performance analysis, and temperature levels. HoloLens will also make it possible to action the data in real time by clicking a “work guidelines” button to access service instructions stored in IFS Applications.
By leveraging the integrated HoloLens camera, the solution is designed to make it easy to document the asset and the service performed and store the information in IFS Applications for future reference.
