Virtual site visits
For assessing for example, a production site, personal presence has been an indispensable benefit. This was the only way to make a valid assessment of the processes and installations on site. An assessment purely based on key figures and photos was mostly insufficient. For this reason, thousands of people travel to the places to be visited every year. This practice causes high personnel and travel costs, CO2 emissions and ties up many resources.
In addition, the restrictions during the Corona crisis have shown how vulnerable this approach is to restrictions on freedom of travel.
