3D AR and digital work instructions! Discover the 6.3 release
Release 6.3 of Acty is finally here! In this latest update, we have focused on improving functionality during assistance, enhancing our Augmented Reality with 3D indications, creating Acty’s new Digital Work instructions that will allow you to guide your technicians step-by-step in the field and record the tasks completed and improving call management by including Call Routing and Missed Call list.
3D Augmented Reality
Guiding a technician or customer remotely is the primary goal of Acty. This is precisely why we have improved Augmented Reality directions, transforming the objects placed in the customer’s field of view from 2D to 3D, making it even more accurate to use the AR drawing function. Available for iOS and Android.
The 3D objects that can be inserted are:
- arrows for directions
- danger and warning symbols
- geometric shapes
- textual indications
- freehand drawing
Video recording of AR directions in 3D
The video feed with the 3D Augmented Reality indications can now be recorded, documenting the procedures on-field or creating precise video instructions pinpointing exactly what it is the field operator has to do and sharing them with anyone facing the same issue.
Digital Work Instructions
Digital Work Instructions are the evolution of quality procedures and manuals that provide field technicians with the information to complete complex tasks in real-time. Acty extends the ability to share knowledge and solve problems even when an expert is unavailable. Every operation is performed, recorded, and tracked so everything is always controlled.
How is this possible? A simple content authoring system has been integrated within Acty to create step-by-step indications for the end customer to perform procedures or solve problems on machinery.
These procedures can contain photos, videos, or PDF documents so that documentation already in the company can be reused. The client or field technician will be able to search for the work instructions directly within the app, scan the QR Code of the machinery created with Acty, or receive them via chat from an expert for self-execution.
Reports of all executed Work Instructions will be archived so that the experts can see the work done by their customers or colleagues.

Custom call routing by customer (or by QR code)
For companies that want to start offering customized levels of support to their customers, we have included custom call routing based on customer calls.
This feature allows the user to decide whether to activate the call button and who the audio-video call should go to (groups or experts) or whether to allow the user to choose directly who to call (again for experts and groups). These call classes can also be applied to an Acty QR Code, which is applied to a piece of machinery and allows calls to be made following the rules established for that machinery.
All the rules are centralized and can be changed instantly from the Acty configuration console or, for more nuanced needs, through calls from your systems using the Acty API.
Lost calls list
To avoid missing any service requests and make your customers’ call management more effective, we have created a list of lost calls. You can find them on one screen and it includes all calls that were not answered because, either there was no expert connected, or those experts were busy and could not answer the call. Experts can then view this list, keep track of missed calls, and call back customers via chat.
Last, a number of minor improvements:
- Compatibility with the Wide Angle Camera of Iristick smart glasses
- Call timeout
