The technology partnership focuses on the joint development of ‘Internet of Things’ and ‘Augmented Reality’ solutions for industrial use cases. The first jointly developed solution allows the rapid creation of digital twins in industrial environments, reducing the time of creation from weeks to hours.
TeamViewer, a leading global provider of remote connectivity and workplace digitalisation solutions, today announced a new technology partnership with VINCI Energies, a global group focusing on accelerating energy transition and digital transformation. The two companies are joining forces to drive the digital transformation of processes in industrial environments, focusing on the joint creation of innovative solutions using Internet of Things (IoT) and Augmented Reality (AR) technology. Furthermore, the agreement includes that VINCI Energies will act as a system integrator for combined TeamViewer and VINCI Energies customers, supporting them with implementation and consulting services around IoT and AR projects. The implementation is carried out by Actemium and Axians, the industrial and ICT service providers of VINCI Energies.
Dr. Bernhard Kirchmair, Chief Digital Officer at VINCI Energies for D/A/CH and Eastern Europe: “We are very excited about teaming up with leading technology company TeamViewer to jointly support our customers to capture the tremendous business value of IoT and AR for improving industrial process performance. With TeamViewer’s and VINCI Energies’ capabilities combined, we are able to plan, build and run impactful digital solutions – in an easy, efficient and secure way”.
Lukas Baur, Executive Vice President Solution Sales at TeamViewer: “The partnership with VINCI Energies, part of one of Europe’s largest industry groups, is a very important step for us on our way to further extend our footprint in industrial contexts. We both share the goal of enabling digital transformation of business-critical processes along the entire value chain. Through this partnership, we can jointly help customers to drive their digitalisation through the seamless interplay of IoT and AR solutions. “
First joint solution allows rapid creation of digital twins
Prior to the official signing of the partnership agreement, TeamViewer and VINCI Energies started the joint technical development of new products and services. With the first market-ready outcome being a digital twin solution for industrial shop floor equipment. This easy-to-use solution offers customers an inexpensive and fast way to create digital twins in industrial environments, reducing the creation time from weeks to hours. The virtual representations of the machines or robots can then be enriched individually with elements such as live sensor data. Through a secure connection, this data can be accessed, monitored, and managed remotely via a user-friendly interface.
