Dynamics 365 Guides empowers employees with the critical information and on-the-job guidance that they need to achieve greater operational efficiency. Easy-to-author guides provide step-by-step holographic instructions for employees to standardize processes, reduce errors to increase yield, upgrade skills, and ensure compliance while keeping employees safe. Remotely connect with experts and bring critical information into view to help troubleshoot, audit, or support dangerous and delicate procedures.

  • Improve employee productivity with advanced guidance: Accelerate learning, standardize processes, and reduce errors to increase yield with step-by-step holographic instructions and hands-on training that show employees how to use tools and stay safe on the job.

  • Solve problems in real time with expertise and ease: Seamlessly collaborate, share knowledge, and problem solve with a remote expert and bring critical data into view while in the flow of work.

  • Adapt at the speed of change: Author guides for training or day-to-day processes and quickly disseminate information across your organization, with no programming or 3D skills necessary.

  • Maximize operational efficiency with data-driven insights: Incorporate guides into workflows to gain visibility and insight into performance data to maximize operational efficiency over time across your organization.

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.
