Index AR Solutions CEO Dan Arczynski presented at the Northeast Public Power Association (NEPPA) Engineering & Operations Conference and Expo recently, showcasing how augmented reality (AR) is increasingly becoming a best practice enabler for electric and gas utilities.
Arczynski discussed how Index has assembled a portfolio of solutions that leverage AR, eBooks and other highly visual and engaging technologies to help workers become safer, more knowledgeable and more efficient than ever before.
A range of applications created by Index were highlighted during Arczynski’s presentation, from one that delivers substation situational awareness to another that gives workers step-by-step troubleshooting direction on complex equipment.
Arczynski also touted the SuperApp® for Gas Apprenticeships, a complete training and worker reference platform that Index has built in partnership with MidAmerican Energy Company. Available now, the SuperApp® for Gas Apprenticeships pairs the power of AR with next-generation eBooks to modernize an apprenticeship program and shorten the time needed to train a qualified, safety conscious and customer service-savvy gas technician.
By replacing paper text books and other static material with dynamic content, imagery and video delivered on a tablet, the SuperApp® for Gas Apprenticeships eliminates learning friction that often frustrates today’s digital natives – a younger generation of worker that has grown up with the power of smartphones and YouTube at their fingertips.
Arczynski noted that the SuperApp® for Gas Apprenticeships is priced with customization included, and clients can purchase complete apprenticeship phases or buy “a la carte” from a menu of individual eBooks and AR experiences.
The Index AR Solutions SuperApp® portfolio is a growing suite of pre-packaged AR applications, each tailored to address common workforce challenges across industry.
