Over the last years, the technological advancement of Augmented Reality (AR) has made great progress and AR is increasingly used in various settings. Yet, AR is still often considered experimental - partly due to the missing awareness of use cases and the benefits of using AR. Although the AR systems have become more mature over the years, researchers suggest that the value gained from them has become progressively difficult to isolate, difficult to measure, and challenging to realize. It was therefore in the interest of the authors to investigate the domain of value realization in AR systems. Management, evaluation of benefits and values from AR systems is a recurrent and growing concern in competitive companies, although it is still a poorly explored subject. Despite their benefits, AR systems have not been fully embraced by organizations, and those that have implemented the ARs are not able to justify the benefits of the investment. Therefore, the main purpose of this study is to establish the value realizations for organizations after the implementation of AR. This study addresses the problem at two levels. First, it presents and explores various benefits addressed in previous literature. It systematically reviews research on the impacts of using Augmented Reality in different settings. Second, the study explores how the concept of AR value is viewed among AR experts.
