Peak Scientific Partners with SightCall to Digitally Transform Service Experience with Augmented Reality Technical Support
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#augmentedreality—SightCall, a global leader of augmented reality (AR)-powered visual assistance, today announced it has partnered with Peak Scientific, a leading innovator and global expert in high-performance nitrogen and hydrogen gas generator solutions for use in laboratories around the world. SightCall enables Peak Scientific to deliver its industry-leading Visual Support offering remote technical assistance to customers using their generators, as well as technicians servicing generators in the field.
“We’re excited to partner with Peak Scientific to support their digital transformation,” said Jason Chapman, Sales Director, UK at SightCall. “By helping their experts accurately diagnose and troubleshoot problems in real time, they can minimize service interruptions, resolve issues quickly and efficiently for their customers, and super-charge their already stellar service experience.”
Customers who contact the technical support desk for service questions can now be seamlessly routed to a SightCall video session that is integrated into Peak Scientific’s Zendesk customer service platform. Service agents leverage this remote support capability to triage, diagnose and troubleshoot issues with reliable HD video and a robust AR and AI feature set.
For Peak Scientific, remote diagnosis is a key element of introducing Visual Support using SightCall. If a service issue requires in-person service from a Field Service Engineer (FSE), the insights and documentation from the visual support session ensures correct diagnoses of the problem, as well as ensuring any specialized parts or tools needed to ensure a first-time fix can be ordered and shipped in advance. If the problem is unusual or highly technical, the FSE can use SightCall to connect with a technical specialist while onsite for better support and guidance.
By partnering with SightCall to deliver Visual Support, Peak Scientific has been able to maintain business continuity, improve customer service, and deliver the technology and resources their engineers need to complete their tasks effectively. Adoption and feedback from FSEs and customers have been incredibly positive, with more than 97% of customers that used SightCall saying it was helpful and easy to use, and they would use it again.
Led by these early successes, Peak Scientific is rolling out Visual Support to its global engineer network, working in over 25 countries to deliver direct service to customers all over the world.
“Service is a top priority for Peak Scientific,” said Mike Hughes, Global Service Delivery Manager at Peak Scientific. “Offering Visual Support via the SightCall application will close the distance between us and our global customer base, allowing us to accurately diagnose problems remotely and support on-site technicians. During the test period alone, we’ve achieved a 97% first-time fix rate.”
