Xerox’s acquisition of this technology can help drive further opportunities to modernize field service, customer support and IT services leveraging the power of the Now Platform and CareAR.”

          ServiceNow is collaborating with Deloitte to integrate the CareAR platform for ServiceNow into the operations service systems and support workflows for joint clients.
