On-site service assignments have become more difficult due to the pandemic; machines have to be set up or serviced. With the "Remote Assist" software solution, Optima has found the right solution for the current situation. The Annual Multimedia Award's expert jury also thinks so. The support software received the Silver Award in the category "Best Use of Creative Technology/Digital Services".
The software simply, quickly and securely establishes an audio and video link between the customer and Optima Support. It also features a chat function, a practical drawing function and the ability to send data. The intuitive application is complemented by encrypted communication and external hosting. Optima uses Remote Assist on laptops, tablets and smartphones as well as with augmented reality glasses. The digital service is part of the OPTIMA Total Care life cycle management program.
