Leveraging Meta’s Oculus Quest 2 Headset and CGS’s TeamworkAR™ Platform, Attendees to Experience Virtual Factory Floor Monitoring and Metaverse Training
New York, NY – May 17, 2022 – CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, today announced it will showcase a virtual reality (VR) experience for modernizing manufacturing operations at Texprocess on May 17-19, 2022, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The immersive experience will be powered by CGS’s TeamworkAR™ platform and Meta’s 2022 Oculus 2 headset. Attendees, media and fellow exhibitors are invited to participate in the demos, live at the top of every hour at the CGS booth #947 in the main hall.
“Manufacturing of the future is here – now a new generation of managers, mechanics, trainers and line workers can benefit from and see immediate, measurable business impact from AR/VR solutions,” said Doug Stephen, president, Enterprise Learning and TeamworkAR divisions for CGS. “By leveraging the power of our TeamworkAR platform, users can explore the features and benefits of our new BlueCherry® Shop Floor Control Essential – product deployment, employee onboarding and training, in-depth product usage and support – all before ever physically deploying the product and without disrupting existing operations.”
Visitors to the CGS booth can simply put on the Oculus 2 device and begin experiencing our Essential product in the Metaverse for a range of activities, including:
- Product demo and deployment. Evaluate and virtually experience the setup, deployment and use of the new BlueCherry Shop Floor Control Essential – virtually performing key line worker activities such as clocking in and out, scanning bundles, selecting off-standard sizes and bundles, tracking individual and group productivity measures and more.
- Metaverse training. Virtually onboard, train and support workers in the Metaverse, eliminating the cost and disruption of in-person training on the factory floor. TeamworkAR accelerates the onboarding and training process by 45–50 percent over traditional methods.
- Ongoing maintenance, repairs and support. Once deployed, users will be able to use TeamworkAR for remote assistance and streamlined collaboration with resident experts, where machine breakdowns and maintenance activities can be conducted in real time without the need to dispatch field service workers.
- Safety measures. Operators can view equipment and monitor safety measures – such as machine temperature, service alerts, and more – from anywhere, anytime.
The industry’s first VR-driven shop floor product experience and metaverse-led training demo is powered by the patented TeamworkAR platform – an augmented reality solution designed for out-of-the box use by enterprise organizations. This easy-to-use platform – already employed by more than 10,000 technicians, field service workers and other employees – can be leveraged on any mobile device and wearable for step-by-step guides, real-time coaching, experiential learning, custom onboarding and training, among other business needs.
TeamworkAR and Meta’s Oculus
In February 2022, CGS announced TeamworkAR was selected to join Meta’s exclusive Quest for Business ISV Program – providing for groundbreaking digital transformation for education and on-the-job training. The Quest for Business Program (formerly Oculus ISV Program) works with enterprise developers and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to engage with Oculus. The goal of the ISV program is to build awareness of Oculus as a true business productivity tool and accelerate commercialization and customer adoption of VR solutions built for Oculus enterprise products.
