Bridging the Physical & Digital World with Thomas Cottereau, SightCall


Once considered science fiction, technological innovations like augmented reality and artificial intelligence have exploded in popularity in recent years. The field service industry is no exception as organizations realize these technologies’ value in solving some of service leaders’ most pressing challenges. However, as organizations advance their digital maturity, how can they prevent gaps between these technologies and create a bridge between the digital and the physical environment?

They’ll offer some advice on how organizations can address disconnects in their digitization efforts, the evolution of customer relationships and the findings from Service Council’s recent parts management survey.
