By: ForeFront
FAIR HAVEN, N.J. - May 5, 2016 - PRLog -- ForeFront, a cloud business management consulting firm, announced last week at the Field Service USA event, a partnership with Help Lightning, a mobile Merged Reality pioneer in the emerging virtual presence service market.

ForeFront is integrating Help Lightning patented technologies into its cloud-based field support solutions portfolio to deliver a game changing innovation: How to give and receive help in the field through virtual presence. For instance, service metrics such as First Time Fix (FTF), Mean Time to Repair (MTTR), and Net Promoter Score (NPS) will be significantly improved by the availability of on-demand service expertise in the field with two digitally merged real-time views (local and remote) delivered via a mobile app. In other words, no more need to travel - give or receive help anywhere, any time.

ForeFront and Help Lightning collaborated in the development of an API and a set of protocols to interact with the Salesforce PaaS (Platform as a Service) ecosystem. ForeFront then integrated Help Lightning mobile Merged Reality video capabilities into field service business workflow processes and knowledge-base management. At Field Service USA, ForeFront, a Gold ServiceMax partner, demonstrated these new game changing capabilities as a differentiating add-on to ServiceMax, a 100% native platform.

"Support will be forever transformed with the ease to virtually deliver expertise to the field," stated Michel Berger, President of ForeFront. "Help Lightning innovative mobile merged reality video capabilities will improve any industry field service organization's KPI metrics."

"With over 15,000 users in 50 countries, our Merged Reality expertise and market leadership are proven," stated Drew Deaton, President of Help Lightning. "ForeFront understands today's field service challenges and is uniquely qualified to deliver KPI insights to boost service revenue and profitability."

ForeFront is bundling its field service best practices, systems integration know-how and Help Lightning technology as part of its cloud-based portfolio of Forefront Service Accelerators (FSA). The new FSA offering is marketed as a client engagement add-on differentiator to ServiceMax, Salesforce Service Cloud and SAP Cloud. ForeFront clients include global market leaders such as GE, Ricoh, and Walmart.
