Companies worldwide are deploying the Iristick.Z1 smart glasses to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, keep production facilities up and running and remotely inspect suppliers and partners. All of them ask us the same questions: Which software platform is best positioned to enable “See-What-I-See” and remote assistance? How does it integrate with our existing collaboration tools?

2 categories of remote assistance tools

At Iristick, we differentiate two categories of tools to support field technicians to collaborate handsfree using real-time audio, video and content with a distant expert.
