Revolutionise your corporate training with Virtual Reality
Imagine the ultimate 3D training tool that brings your team and customers face to face with your brand, wherever they are in the world, that’s what we can create, together.
Create your own fully-bespoke, interactive and engaging 3D virtual environment, where your stakeholders can get ‘hands on’ just as they would in real life. Whether you are launching a new product, teaching a new process, or practising complex and expensive training procedures, utilising virtual reality can reap significant rewards.

Virtual reality offers an interactive 3D space that can be hosted anywhere in the world, in any time zone, with nothing more than a VR headset. Not only is it effective and seamless, but it gets a great user response, positioning you as a user of cutting-edge technology.
Here’s just some of the benefits:
All the benefits of face to face, with less logistical planning
If you’re supporting a dispersed team or client base, face to face training typically requires venues, travel, catering, accommodation, and people management, just to get people in the same place at the same time. Virtual reality delivers your training with the same corporate goals and feel of face to face, but with much greater flexibility and much less logistical planning.
Lower cost per user
Bringing international teams together or taking your training on tour worldwide is a potentially costly exercise. Creating your 3D virtual environment on the other hand is a single investment, which only needs supporting with the distribution of VR headsets. The US Training Industry Report 2019 found that even excluding the “hidden” cost of training such as hours out of the office and ‘lost’ productivity, by combining the cost of travel, accommodation, training provider, and venue hire, the cost of face to face training averages $250 per hour per user. Virtual reality significantly drives down the cost per user, compared with these traditional face to face formats.
In true terms, embracing virtual reality gives you unlimited capacity for your training. There’s no venue or health and safety restrictions, and there’s no limit on the number of delegates per course. This means that in principal, you can train thousands of stakeholders online, at exactly the same time. The only limit is your availability of hardware to support the system.
More engaging than video
While many brands are embracing the world of online training, it primarily remains in a 2D format, delivered by video, or specialist training software. This approach lacks the engaging, tactile and focused feel of meeting in the flesh. Virtual reality changes that, presenting a true-to-life environment for your delegates to get hands-on. This is particularly important as 65% of learners are visual learners, retaining more information from training they can engage with, than they do with solely e-learning.
A consistent, bespoke brand environment
Having a 3D virtual environment helps you to create a consistent brand reality that enables you to replicate the training over and over again in the same look and feel.
A personalised approach to your training
Whether you want to run training days for all your stakeholders, or you want access 365 days a year for your team to access when they need to, once the environment exists, it can be tailored to your annual training requirements. Bitesize training, modular, conference style, new starters / customers, or all stakeholders, the possibilities are endless. What’s more, you can control access to your environment yourself, adding users and changing access however and whenever you need to.
Complex formats as standard
One of the typical limitations of online training is the inflexibility and limitations of a traditional online platform. Virtual reality changes that, replicating everything you can do in person, online. This means that it can meet whatever your brand needs it to, however complex that is.
Here’s some examples of how VR can be used:
- step-by-step procedure practising: Train staff step-by-step, teaching the process required at each stage, and supporting team practice
- product configuration: Train site engineers in product configuration. As well as product training, it supports understanding of how to pick the right product in the right situation, and what the complete installation should look like
- changing environments: one of the limitations of traditional training is that it can focus on the product, but not on the installation environment. Using virtual reality means you can not only train in product installation, but also practise in different environments such as commercial versus domestic, or retrofit versus new build for example
- pending products: if your product development is at prototype stage and available to pre-order, virtual reality can bring your product to life graphically, before it has even entered manufacturing. This helps your team to tell the story, even before they’re hands on with the product.
- dangerous or complex configurations: whether your training is dangerous or particularly complex, anything from explosives to surgery, virtual reality provides a safe space simulation that supports training without the health and safety concerns
