It’s a common situation in many industries: Experienced technicians are retiring without capable replacements ready to step in.
The shortage of qualified technicians is a real concern for many companies who rely upon their expertise to keep their operations running smoothly.
Tethr It addresses this problem by allowing older technicians to work remotely from the comfort of their own home, even after the typical retirement years. We make it possible for them to continue working without the daily rigors and physical requirements of the traditional technicians’ job – no more traveling to job sites and climbing onto machinery to diagnose problems.
With Tethr It, aging technicians can earn skills-based income that wouldn’t be possible without augmented reality (AR) technology. AR allows an experienced technician to efficiently pass along first-hand knowledge that isn’t easily explained in manuals such as troubleshooting options, equipment tests and running diagnostics.
Tethr It’s video-calling platform puts experienced technicians on the job site virtually, allowing them to clearly see areas of interest, allowing them to get the machine up and running more quickly. This not only helps the technicians continue their career – it puts them in an educator’s role for younger technicians who will serve as relied-upon experts in the future. To further aid in this process, Tethr It enables companies to record and access historical call data to be used for training and best-practice sharing.
