DXC recently assisted one of the leading companies in water treatment and chemical distribution in New Zealand & Australia. The company, Ixom, enlisted the help of DXC to develop a custom training along with the assessment platform using Microsoft’s HoloLens. In the past, Ixom would conduct learning & training assessments at customer sites. This required travel, scheduling, and using employee resources. By using the custom-built solution, Ixom saves time & money. They can do the learning and training assessments remotely. This results in flexibility and autonomy. Ixom employees can get the work done without being exposed to hazards or risks.
