Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), part of Barry-Wehmiller, has launched Accelerate Live, a mobile app that enables machine inspection and troubleshooting in the field, providing quicker service for customers.
Accelerate Live creates a fully collaborative live environment with an instant audio/video connection between the customer facility and PCMC technicians and engineering experts. By using a tablet, both participants can draw in a relative 3-D space to facilitate the troubleshooting and diagnostic process.
‘When our customers’ equipment is down, we realize they don’t have time to wait for service,’ said Noah Kellermann, field service training leader for PCMC. ‘With Accelerate Live, we can offer a rapid response to equipment issues to get machines back up and running quickly.’
Accelerate Live is a subscription-based service that works through a PCMC-provided tablet and noise canceling Bluetooth headphones. It was developed to connect in industrial facilities that have low-bandwidth Wi-Fi.
‘We’ve done extensive testing to ensure call quality is clear and effective,’ said Kellermann. ‘Feedback from our service technicians and our test group of customers helped us enhance our offering to provide the right technology and tools, and ultimately deliver the exceptional service that customers have come to expect from PCMC.’
