Liebherr has expanded its digital product portfolio for crawler cranes, deep foundation equipment and maritime cranes with the development of a Remote Service tool that improves assistance through visual information. Audio and video calls, a chat function, screen sharing, image and document exchange, as well as whiteboarding functions are some of the features that have been integrated in the tool.
For example, in April this year, Liebherr’s major customer Adani Murmugao Port Terminal Pvt. Ltd. required immediate assistance for one of their Liebherr machines; however attendance on site was not permissible. Using Remote Service the Liebherr engineers instructed the Adani staff how to remove the defect pump, inspected the condition of the gearbox remotely, and then guided the site staff through the installation of the new pump.
Manguesh Sangodkar, Head of Engineering at Adani Murmugao Port Terminal Pvt. Ltd. wrote in appreciation of the new tool, “The way you plan the job through Remote Service, communicate and execute with your highly professional and technically efficient engineering team is great. In light of your impeccable services, we would like to continue our association with you for the years to come.”
Due to the current pandemic situation worldwide, Liebherr has decided to accelerate the market launch of Remote Service in terms of an extended test phase. This means all Liebherr customers now have the opportunity to use the Remote Service App free of charge until the end of 2020.
