Toronto, Canada – September 15, 2015 – Maintenance Assistant is pleased to announce the beta release of Maintenance Assistant for Google Glass™. Maintenance Assistant for Glass is the latest release in a series of disruptive technologies that have been built to showcase the many integration points with its industry-leading cloud platform for maintenance and asset management.
“In an industry that’s typically a late adopter of technology and plagued by bloated, outdated software, we believe in the importance of challenging the status quo and building software that’s more forward thinking. We wanted to demonstrate the power of our modern cloud platform by allowing Glass to access our maintenance software, and decided to make it a reality this summer”, said Marc Castel, CEO.
Using Google Glass™, a wifi enabled pair of glasses with a heads-up display, users of Maintenance Assistant’s maintenance software can walk through their factory, scan equipment and instantly check on the status of equipment – including current meter readings, outstanding work orders and scheduled maintenance items – or easily add a new piece of equipment to the maintenance system through voice commands to Google Glass™. The practical benefit of Maintenance Assistant for Glass is that it is portable, and wearable, allowing hands-free access to equipment information while technicians perform their maintenance in the field.
“The integration of Glass with Maintenance Assistant is just one of many progressive beta projects we’ve been working on at MA Labs using our API,” said Daryl Sedgman, CTO. “From the beginning, Maintenance Assistant has aimed to disrupt the maintenance industry by providing it with the cutting-edge technology it deserves. Integrating with Google Glass™ demonstrates another step in that direction alongside our other recent integrations with Arduino and Raspberry Pi mini-computers.”
