Training, development and collaboration with XR
XR isn't an abstract concept to look out for in the next 5-10 years. The two main reasons for business travel are collaboration and training, and devices that can help you cut down your travel costs and associated emissions exist today.
At boxxe, we've been experimenting with devices like the RealWear HMT-1 and HoloLens 2 throughout 2021/22 and have seen first-hand how much potential they have to increase profits, provide next-generation service experiences to our customers and support the UK's net zero target.
In fact just last year, we used the RealWear HMT-1 to remotely supervise a build of hybrid teams meeting rooms in offices based in the Scottish Highlands. Traditionally, that support would have required our Specialist to make an on-site trip that would have cost hundreds in travel, hotel and subsistence costs - not to mention the emissions from a return 8+ hour drive.
