App Enables Increased Efficiency, Improved Worker Safety, and Reduced Truck Rolls for Field Service Agents in Light of COVID-19


SAN FRANCISCO, CA, September 24, 2020
— SightCall, an AR-enabled visual assistance platform, today introduces a new mobile experience designed for field service agents to deliver remote assistance from their mobile devices in response to the pandemic. SightCall provides feature-rich video calls to allow an expert to “see what I see” for remote assistance and support. Building off this industry leading visual assistance platform, the SightCall app now allows for simplified, more effective responses to work orders, leading to improved worker safety and decreased resolution times.


Historically, field service has always been done on-location because there simply wasn’t a way to accurately address an issue without seeing it in person. While that can be time consuming and costly in traditional scenarios, the pandemic has added an additional layer of difficulty. Working in combination with its visual assistance platform, the SightCall app enables field service agents to get the information and vision they need to remotely assess and diagnose issues and work to quickly resolve customer issues.



“While the immediate value of remote field service is worker safety, the long-term benefits, like faster resolution time and ability to handle higher task and call volumes, could alter the field service industry permanently,” said Ben Pinkerton, VP of Product Marketing at SightCall. “As SightCall continues to advance what’s possible with visual imagery, we have the ability to revolutionize established processes in maintenance and customer engagement that were once considered matter of fact.


Notable experiences within the SightCall app include:




When implementing SightCall’s technology, customers have seen an 81% increase in first time fix success rate, eliminating the need to send a technician onsite and reducing unnecessary truck rolls. According to the Technology & Services Industry Association, the cost of a truck roll is around $1,000, so eliminating the risk associated with sending agents into the field can provide significant cost savings over time. The SightCall app is available for iOS and Android. For more information visit https://sightcall.com/.
