Europe’s biggest car distributor society implements Glartek’s solution to increase the productivity of its main operations

Glartek has been selected to deploy a Hands-Free solution that combines Augmented Reality (AR) and a Digital environment to connect teams in its automotive workshops.

Lisbon, Portugal – October 11th, 2022. Glartek, a leading Augmented Reality (AR) solution provider for field services, the asset-intensive, and the manufacturing industries, has partnered with one of the largest Automotive importers in the world.

The automotive distributor leader has chosen Glartek visual remote assistance solution to reduce time spent with maintenance and unexpected problems in several Mechanical workshops. The solution will also allow the new starters to be able to perform better during their first standalone maintenance and repair procedures.

The company represents some of the major European and international car brands in the world. As a subsidiary of the top car brand in Europe, the company operates in 29 countries in the world, sells around 800 000 cars a year, and is responsible for 250.000 cars maintained in their workshops each year.

Glartek’s Augmented Reality solution has been selected to improve the efficiency of repairing services in their workshops. With Visual Remote Assistance capabilities, the company avoids having to bring cars with complex issues to headquarters for repair.

Today, experts that are centralized in the headquarters can remotely help operators spread in workshops all over the world and avoid long resolutions for maintenance problems of the vehicles. Hence, the company can reduce the response time to help customers, avoid transportation and travel costs, and ensure that their team is better qualified for any issue, at any moment.

“The Augmented & Connected Worker is bringing true value to the automotive sector and enabling a more prepared workforce that can perform better autonomously. We are very glad to bring this technology to worldwide leaders and help them achieve operational excellence with our technology.” said Bruno Duarte, CEO at Glartek.
