HOD HASHARON, Israel, June 13, 2017

Fieldbit, a leader in real-time augmented reality and knowledge capture solutions for field services, today announced it has been named to the list of “cool vendors” in “Gartner Cool Vendors in Enterprise Wearable and Immersive Technologies, 2017”. This report showcases the tools to manage wearable endpoints in enterprise use-cases.

Fieldbit was recognized for its recently launched Fieldbit Hero augmented reality platform for field services. “Augmented reality and wearables are disruptive technologies that are radically changing the way organizations perform field service maintenance,” said Evyatar Meiron, CEO of Fieldbit. “Our next generation platform harnesses augmented reality, together with recent advances in smart glasses, to help enterprises drastically boost the productivity and efficiency of their field service operations.”

Using augmented reality, Fieldbit Hero enables remote experts to superimpose precise instructions on top of the physical machine, guiding the technician step-by-step through complex machinery fixes. The software platform supports commercially available smart glasses, such as ODG and Epson, for hands-free collaboration, as well as running on smartphones and tablets. Fieldbit Hero also organically captures the knowledge created during the service process, which is then stored in a knowledge base for future sharing and reuse across the organization.

“As the pioneer in augmented reality technologies for field services, we’re honored to be selected as a Gartner Cool Vendor for 2017,” concluded Meiron. “As the wearables market continues to mature, we plan to enhance our platform to operate with the next generation of smart glasses, including support for mixed reality.”
