HARDI International A/S is an international group whose basic idea is to meet the user’s requirements for quality products which ensure efficient, punctual and accurate use of crop protection products.
The company has its own training center (HARDI Academy) which hosts an International Service Seminar in Denmark every year for its subsidiaries, dealers, importers and customers. In 2020, this was a challenge due to travel restrictions associated with the COVID-19 virus, and HARDI had to look for alternative ways of making the annual event happen. A cancellation of the event would mean a suboptimal opportunity to improve the distribution of the product portfolio, lost revenue, earnings and goodwill as well as a wasted opportunity for close communication.
A new real-time learning platform
When Peter Ersted Frederiksen, Technical Service & Documentation Manager, from HARDI at a meeting with Innomize was presented with the Remote Eye solution from Wideum as a real-time learning platform, things started to brighten up: Peter quickly saw the possibilities to make the annual event happen through new technology.
The first service seminar in the new format was held in November 2020. The high-tech products from HARDI were displayed in the company’s large presentation room, and at the service seminar, two HARDI experts reviewed the news on the products. The experts used RealWear smart glasses, powered by Remote Eye software and thanks to the virtual meeting functionality, they could communicate with participants from all over the world (Australia, USA, China, Russia, Germany) while showing the various features live on the products.
The new solution for the annual service seminar was a success, and HARDI has
subsequently held several more seminars with the same outcome. The new solution has enabled HARDI to host new service seminars with shorter intervals while using the Remote Eye app as a tool to provide ongoing training and support to their network, ultimately taking their service to the next level.
