Using technology like Vuforia Expert Capture can greatly improve productivity, decrease wasted time, and much more. However, for those workers who will create and use AR work instructions, the changes may feel daunting and adversely affect their jobs. Take proactive steps to engage contributors and ease the transition.
While it’s important to communicate, it’s also imperative to listen. If stakeholder communication is only coming from one direction, you risk overlooking valuable feedback, inventive ideas, or important concerns from people in your organization.
To help facilitate and elicit feedback, try one or more of the following methods:
Whichever method you choose, be sure frontline workers, managers, new trainees, project participants, and other stakeholders know how to express concerns, share ideas, and ask questions.
Advocate for Vuforia Expert Capture across your organization. If possible, get support from leadership and ask them to help you spread the news. Consider sharing updates with executive leaders, managers, trainees, and other employees as appropriate.
Whenever you communicate about Vuforia Expert Capture, clearly articulate why you are implementing it. Know how to explain:
Prevent inaccurate assumptions by clearly communicating the value this new technology will bring to your organization.
Document how, when, and to whom you will communicate throughout your project. Keeping employees informed can help ease concerns about big changes.
Guidelines for creating a communication plan:
Change can be uncomfortable—but it's inevitable for businesses to stay competitive. Implementing new technology like augmented reality is no different. But there are ways to smooth the transition and build excitement about the new initiative.
One way to introduce Vuforia Expert Capture to employees is to show them its amazing possibilities. Help audiences understand the technology by demonstrating how others use it. See examples of use cases here. Explain how this will connect to what employees are doing today and why it should matter to them.
Giving employees an opportunity to interact with Vuforia Expert Capture firsthand is another way to create excitement. For example, you’ll test your Vuforia Expert Capture procedures throughout the project to make sure they’re functional and usable. Early in the project, recruit employees to help test it. By involving end users early and listening to their ideas, you encourage them to advocate for the project on your behalf.
