Packing the power of custom-built Index AR applications, SuperApp™ product development is performed in the field using real-world client scenarios and hardware. Index AR is building a library of SuperApp™ products over time, giving clients a selection of robust AR solutions that can be rapidly procured and deployed to meet specific business needs.
Each Index SuperApp™ AR product is tailored to address common workforce challenges associated with an industry. Pole-mounted voltage regulators and their controllers present a maintenance challenge for major electrical utility companies. Troubleshooting and servicing this type of device configuration typically requires multiple truck rolls. Crews are being asked to do their normal line work, but also take on the challenges of less familiar technical work as well. The LineAssist SuperApp™ by Index AR captures a set of best practices for three different pole mounted voltage regulators and five different control panels, giving linemen the safest and best practice process to follow.
The LineAssist SuperApp™ provides detailed, step-by-step instructions through AR, with imagery that is overlaid on the pole-mounted voltage regulator and control panel itself – enabling linemen to visualize and more safely and easily perform key tasks in the process.
The LineAssist SuperApp™ is a unique story in product development and the power of a business model that works for clients and Index AR alike. It began with Westar Energy, a Midwestern electric utility, signing an agreement to co-market an Index AR app that assists utility linemen. What started as a successful custom app deployment for Westar Energy become even more compelling when it was clear it had broad application across all electrical utilities.
Through this agreement, Westar Energy shares in the LineAssist SuperApp™ success. Index AR looks to sign similar agreements with other clients and bring additional offerings to market under the SuperApp™ development model.
Pricing and terms to purchase an Index SuperApp™ are currently based on co-marketing agreements with Index AR clients. As more SuperApp™ products become available, Index AR plans to offer the library of SuperApp™ products on a convenient subscription basis.
