Mobile Live Video: Revolutionizing the Field Service Industry

Changing Tides Within the Field Service Industry:

Mobile live video is one of the most revolutionary innovations to come to the Field Service industry in recent years. This technology, which can be utilized via a standard mobile device, has the potential to significantly reduce delays in solving complex problems, and even eliminate the need for repeat call-outs. Using a technology like Iris, technicians can acquire remote expert advice and management sign-off, in real-time, from just about anywhere in the world — recording the whole interaction in the process, for documentation purposes.

What Can the Iris Platform Bring to the Field Service Industry?:

Mobile live video can be used in many capacities by employees out in the field.
