Emerging technologies make bold promises. Whether they ultimately go mainstream or crash strongly depends on delivering the goods, but also on the buzz surrounding them. And when it comes to determining a technology’s potential, it’s essential to separate fact from fiction. Remote visual support is no different.
Remote Visual Support Myths
The hype around remote visual support, accelerated by the extreme restrictions and limitations brought about by the COVID-19 crisis, is an excellent example of how misconceptions can take root and obfuscate the business benefits of innovative and practical technologies.

And that’s especially true today when in-person shopping is limited, and people mostly interact with service providers on digital platforms.
