Through a suite of cloud-based services and designated service staff, manufacturers can reach faster diagnosis and receive real-time support with greater cost- and time-savings than a traditional on-site visit.
Built around a PLC interface and high-quality audio, a live video feed and file-serving features, R.A Jones’ remote assistance support allows machine operators to connect with experts and troubleshoot errors and interruptions on-demand. If operators encounter any issues with equipment, they simply engage with skilled technicians via smart phone, tablet or laptop to troubleshoot the source of the problem and work to find a solution.
Utilizing the IT platform and hardware allows manufacturers to benefit from R.A Jones’ technical expertise and find resolution efficiently, reducing downtime and minimizing expenses associated with service calls. The remote option cuts unnecessary travel-related costs and expedites the maintenance process, maximizing uptime and productivity, as well as eliminates any concerns around viral spread following the coronavirus outbreak.
