Microsoft Dynamics 365 Guides is a mixed-reality application that displays step-by-step holographic instructions right where the work happens, enabling employees to quickly learn and execute complex tasks.
Dynamics 365 Guides:
Helps reduce errors and increase safety.
Closes knowledge gaps and strengthens skills.
Adapts to your work in real time.
Improves training and processes.
Dynamics 365 Guides addresses the needs of three key personas: content authors, operators, and managers/analysts.
Authors can easily create guides without 3D or programming skills by using a simple PC app and a HoloLens app. Operators use guides on HoloLens in training and on the job to get guidance while they work in a heads-up, hands-free style. Trainers and managers can analyze usage data to optimize their workflows.
