During the launch Microsoft has cited real world usage of how its augmented-reality goggles made business sense as it reduced travel time and allowed physical inspection across two different geographical location on two different continents.
Two years after its launch, Microsoft Corp capitalized on its HoloLens technology and has introduced its augmented-reality goggles for its Dynamics 365 online business software.
In a blog post, Microsoft said, Dynamics 365 Layout and Dynamics 365 Remote Assistant, help connect live remote colleagues with the use of HoloLens
The software giant has cited Chevron Corp’s usage of the applications, at the time of their launch saying, Dynamics 365 Layout and Dynamics 365 Remote Assistant, has enabled Chevron to remotely connect experts with firstline workers and thus reduce travel time.
“Previously it was required to fly in an inspector from Houston to a facility in Singapore once a month to inspect equipment. Now it has in-time inspection using Dynamics 365 Remote Assist and can identify issues or provide approvals immediately,” said Microsoft.
Microsoft has also announced the launch of Dynamics 365 AI for sales, customer service and market insights.
Dynamics 365, which posted a 61 percent increase when Microsoft reported its quarterly results in July, competes with San Francisco-based Salesforce’s flagship Sales Cloud.
The new AI applications will be released next month, said Microsoft.
