Lenovo and many AR/VR vendors see a way to fill the need for remote collaboration during the COVID-19 crisis that has triggered month-long statewide lockdowns. While many states and countries are slowly reopening, the fear of a second or third wave of infection, along with travel restrictions, make remote working protocols necessary for the foreseeable future.

In his talk titled “Scalable Enterprise AR Solutions that are Easy to Deploy—More Important Now than Ever Before,” Michael Leon, Director of Commercial AR/VR, Lenovo, said, “Some companies view this crisis as an opportunity to accelerate projects. For others, unfortunately things have slowed down, or some funding has been put on hold .. What we're hearing from our customers is, it's changing their priorities on AR/VR, and what they are able to do with certain tools, like remote expert, remote assistance, and virtual training. For us, we believe AR help companies operate smarter in this environment.”

In a recent survey by Fortune magazine, 63% of the Fortune 500 CEOs said the current COVID-19 crisis would accelerate their technological transformation. Only 6% replied it would slow it down.
