Remote headsets for Shell31 March 2021

Workflow automation firm Intoware has secured a contract with Shell Information Technology International BV to deploy its digital platform WorkfloPlus to help improve Shell’s operational efficiencies through industrial connected working.

This contract follows the successful trial of WorkfloPlus at Shell’s upstream, downstream, manufacturing, integrated gas and marine & shipping operations across numerous countries over the last 12 months. It was evaluated by Shell’s eXtended Reality (XR) Team.

Designed for use with augmented reality (AR) headsets from Realwear, WorkfloPlus generates digital workflows required for health and safety audits, regulatory compliance and on-boarding tasks eliminating the need for time-consuming manual processes.

WorkfloPlus helps connected workers to undertake activities such as daily inspection audits and maintenance tasks, creating live in-work views, progress updates and immediate results analysis, further encouraging collaborative working and improved problem solving.

Michael Kaldenbach, digital realities lead, Shell, comments: “We see benefits from the detail and simplicity of Intoware’s digital workflows for onboarding, inspections or repairs, and the ease of integrations will help us access key, often unique data insights.

“This, together with a fast and easy deployment, live job updates and alerts, integrated remote expert providers and great support from their technical development team are really going to enable further efficiencies and safer working practices.”

WorkfloPlus is designed for Realwear’s headsets with integrations to remote expert solutions such as HPE MyRoom VRG (visual remote guidance).

According to the company, that will bring huge efficiencies as workers can troubleshoot issues in real time, preventing the need for technical experts to be physically on-site.
