Connecting our field operators to Total’s experts and vendors, down the street or on the other side of the world, is particularly topical at a time when travelling is restricted. But above all, the launch of Microsoft Teams on RealWear at Total’s La Porte site in Texas is another step in our industrial digital transformation. It makes Total’s operations safer and more efficient by executing better decisions faster. It also allows us to improve our operational excellence over the long run and create the petrochemicals plant of tomorrow.

There is no substitute for in-person collaboration to support business critical activities but assisted reality technology helps us collaborate with our teams at the workplace in situations when meeting in person isn’t possible or the best answer. These technologies will help us innovate and collaborate and transform the way we work on the front line.
