“CareAR enables you to visually assess a scenario where the equipment alerts you to a potential problem before your customers even notice it. Imagine being able to deliver a tailored solution and relevant technical information, quickly and in a personalized way. This is possible from any device, regardless of the time or location where your customers are.”

How does CareAR work?

OneXillium service support with CareAR“Let’s say a printer fuser unit needs to be replaced. The fuser unit is a crucial part of a laser printer. Its main function is to heat the toner, a fine powder that adheres to the paper, creating the printed image or text.

The customer can point their phone at the printer, allowing the subject matter expert to visualize the situation and guide the customer step-by-step through the fuser replacement process. The SME can draw an arrow, circle a button, or write text and the different indications are instantly displayed on the customer’s screen.

The CareAR tool allows many of the current minor faults to be instantly resolved remotely with the customer who receive immediate support, avoiding hours of waiting time to a field visit.”

What would be the type of circumstances when access to an immediate remote assistance may prove beneficial?

“OneXillium works with an array of customers in different verticals and some machines are installed and maintained by onsite qualified operators. They have a stock of parts allowing them to efficiently resolve the most common breakdowns.

If the onsite operator encounters a problem, they contact our OneXillium’s Customer Delight Center who launches a CareAR session. If the problem is more challenging, then OneXillium engages a Xerox engineer to join the live remote session as well and is able to diagnose the issue in real time.”

What are the benefits of using CareAR?

“Customers receive support immediately resulting in a reduction of machine downtime. Guiding the customer remotely with the AR annotation in order to resolve the issue is definitely a plus.”
