SightCall, the world’s leading augmented reality (AR)-powered visual assistance platform, integrated with LanguageLine Solutions(R), a Monterey, California-based provider of on-demand language services, to provide live speech interpretation during video calls. The addition of LanguageLine was enabled by SightCall’s open platform architecture that allows technology providers to build secure integrations that meet the varying needs of enterprise business processes across a wide variety of industries.

“SightCall was purpose-built to improve field-service and customer-service communications by enabling experts to see and guide remotely with AR-powered video,” said Thomas Cottereau, founder and CEO of SightCall. “The LanguageLine integration fits naturally into our platform ecosystem, further improving communications for customers that can benefit from on-demand interpreters to improve accuracy and understanding in fieldservice and customer-service interactions. We are thrilled to move forward together, offering this industry-first solution to drive more global and inclusive operations for enterprise service.”
