How Ally Helps in Remote Assistance

Slide 2
Remote Assistance

The onsite team and in-house field technician can view the scheduled remote assistance request from the app itself. Upcoming Remote Assistance shows the date and time, host or technician’s name, equipment name, and other related details. Tapping on any of these requests, the user can see the detailed screen of the Remote Assistance request. Users can also view the annotation images and video recording of the session anytime through Ally.

Slide 2
Digital Annotations

Remote assistance combines live video and audio for remote and local participants to annotate their live shared views. Digital annotations stick accurately to real-world objects even when the users move around. The annotation is the best-in-class application of the AR technology. Ally will show the annotation images from the video after completing the call. The host and technician can write the problem resolution statement based on these images and the entire data will be stored in the knowledge center for future reference.

Slide 3
Multiparty Conference

The user has to scan the QR/RFID/Beacon code placed on the equipment to host the call. Ally will show the complete details of the equipment after scanning. The field technician can have an option to “Call In-House Technician”, “Call Vendor”, and “Call Guest”. Users can also view the details like the listing of possible problems for equipment, problem statement search, and past problems with resolution. Guest users can get an email notification with the meeting code.

Slide 2
Host Call Functionality

It enables the app user to select multiple users either from Contact Directory or by inviting the guest user. The host or app user can select the date and time and on scanning the QR code or RFID of the equipment, the app will fetch all the necessary details about the equipment. After selecting these details, Ally will give two options to the user- Show User’s Camera View and Show Technician’s Camera View.

Slide 1
Problems History

Knowledge Center is one of the most important features of Ally. Problems once resolved are stored in the Knowledge Center with necessary details so that the users can see them as and when necessary.

Slide 2
Guest User Functionality

The guest user will get an email notification along with the meeting code to join the call. The guest user has to download Ally and use the “Join Meeting” option. The Ally app will ask for the meeting code and once the correct code is entered, Ally will initiate the video call. Guest users need not login or register for joining the multi-party conference.

Slide 1
Call Log

If the call is related to preventive maintenance and needs a schedule, then the on-site team or technician can fill the checklist of the Preventive Maintenance and submit. Both the call report and checklist will be stored in the ‘Knowledge Center’ and if any technician is on call for the same objective then they can view the Preventive Maintenance checklist as well as call report.

Slide 2
Speech to Text

Ally has integrated the Speech-to-Text feature that enables participants or users to see the text of the conversation happening on a video call. Everyone connected in the call can see it on the screen of the app. Ally will transmit the audio as well during the video call and both the users (Host and technician) can have an audio and video call.
