As a product specialist and a hygiene expert, I’m often asked to go into food processing facilities to help prepare for an audit, update, or create a color-coding plan, suggest tools for difficult cleaning problems, or set up best storage practices. When Covid-19 hit in 2020, we realized as a company that we needed solutions for when we’re unable to safely visit facilities for public health, weather, or time constraint reasons.
As a solution, we turned to the Microsoft HoloLens, an advanced headset that uses augmented reality. Now, we can offer Virtual Site Surveys, which are free-of-charge, just like their in-person counterparts. Additionally, virtual versions of these meetings can include representatives from other plants that may have similar issues and layouts.
The HoloLens does require a stable WiFi connection, but once they’re connected and customers receive a quick training session, we’ve heard that they’re easy to use.
Virtual Site Surveys work like this:
According to customer feedback and personal experience, Virtual Site Surveys are more convenient, faster, and don’t involve the delays and scheduling headaches that come with traveling. We hope that with the time saved from traveling to every facility, we’ll be able to help more food processors throughout the year.
If you’re interested in a Virtual Site Survey, or you have any questions, please fill out the form here. I or one of my colleagues will get back to you as soon as we can.
