Porsche (China) establishes new remote technical support using FacePro Xpert System, bringing significant cost reduction and efficiency improvement.

The Remote Technical Support (RTS) Porsche remote technical support system established by Porsche China is based on Softfoundry's FacePro Xpert System solution.

Travel expenses of the Porsche China after-sales department have decreased by nearly 80%. At the same time, the Porsche China Network Development Department also planned to use the RTS system to invest in the remote inspection of new stores and the remote audit of Porsche Centers.
