CBT Delivers Connected Worker Training to Milwaukee Tool Using Augmented Reality (AR)

Orange, Oct. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CBT, a domain expert integrator focused on IT/OT convergence, was selected by Milwaukee Tool, a subsidiary of Techtronic Industries, along with Ryobi, Empire, Imperial Blades, RIDGID, HART, Hoover, Oreck, and Dirt Devil to expand its sales training to incorporate augmented reality (AR) visualization into their existing training application. The project covered two critical training scenarios. 

Milwaukee Tool’s goal was to transform its training procedures from in-person expert instruction to interactive and self-guided using AR. CBT worked with Milwaukee Tool to build interactive AR visualizations of plumbing and HVAC systems. CBT’s engineering experts integrated the training onto Milwaukee Tool’s digital learning platform, SparkLearn. This eliminated the need to fly experts to a specific training location, resulting in cost savings for the company and better, more timely access to training for employees and the ability to learn at their own pace. 

“We could not have developed anything close to this experience without the guidance, support, and collaboration with CBT. From solutions to brainstorms, working through the nightmare that was developing around a physical space during covid. The collaboration between SparkLearn and CBT was instrumental and both of these organizations, as partners, have enabled us to create a dream situation for our end-user experience and a foundation from which we can continue to expand in this space.” said Kevin Oreshack, Manager of Program Content, Assets and Virtual Infrastructure, Milwaukee Tool. 

“At CBT, we love solving complex problems for our customers and allowing them to focus on their core business,” said Kelly Ireland Founder, CEO & CTO. “It’s a pleasure to work with companies like Milwaukee Tool as they understand CBT is a trusted advisor and delivers on the promise of XR technology and that CBT builds nonproprietary solutions avoiding vendor lock-in. Our goal is to foster a partnership with our customers that enables us to grow together.” For CBT's full case study with Milwaukee Tool, click here http://www.cbtechinc.com/milwaukee-tool-case-study/
