JLG Industries has announced updates to its JLG Augmented Reality (AR) app, giving the innovative digital tool a facelift and expanding its capabilities to be even more useful to users on a day-to-day basis.
The next-generation upgrades include an all-new interface and experience, new content, cloud-based and offline use, expanded machine inspections functionality and a new “Fleet” feature.
“This new, expanded version of the JLG AR app not only has a more modern look and feel, but it also operates more effectively and efficiently,” says Ara Eckel, director of product management for connected solutions, JLG. “Taking a machine-first approach, we have evolved this tool with very targeted enhancements and additional features that will improve users’ productivity. Its customer-centric design makes the app easier to navigate and more quickly connects our customers to the information they are looking for.”
The new “Fleet” feature helps JLG customers optimize their fleet management right from the app. Users can now add and store multiple assets for easy tracking by serial number/asset ID. Also, users can save data on machines and access it instantly, regardless of connectivity.
“Using the JLG AR app, users can get on-demand, digital access to information specific to a machine without ever leaving the job site,” says Eckel. “There are a lot of added benefits and value for users in the updated JLG AR app and the best part is that it is 100-percent free to download and does not require a login to use.”
