Fieldbit Selected from Hundreds of Startups for Its Augmented Reality Field Service Collaboration Platform
Hod Hasharon, Israel, June 22, 2017 – Fieldbit, a leader in real-time augmented reality and knowledge capture solutions for field services, today announced it has been named as a “winning startup” in ENGIE’s international Innovation Week. This is the third consecutive year that ENGIE, Europe’s leading energy company, has organized a week-long event dedicated to highlighting innovative projects in the energy sector.
Among hundreds of applicants and dozens of finalists worldwide, Fieldbit was recognized as a winner for its Fieldbit Hero augmented reality platform for field services.
Using augmented reality, Fieldbit Hero enables remote experts to superimpose precise instructions on top of the physical machine, guiding the technician step-by-step through complex machinery fixes. Particularly relevant for energy and other utility companies, Fieldbit Hero helps preserve the practical field services knowledge of aging workforces by organically capturing the knowledge created during the service process. This information is then stored in a knowledge base for search, sharing and reuse across the organization.
“It is an honor to be selected as a winning startup by ENGIE, one of the world’s largest energy providers,” said Evyatar Meiron, CEO of Fieldbit. “Fieldbit Hero harnesses innovative technologies to solve pressing problems facing today’s utility companies, such as boosting field service productivity and replacing their aging workforces. We look forward to strengthening our cooperation with ENGIE as their field engineers proceed with the evaluation of our augmented reality platform.”
