With rapid digital transformation globally, accelerated by the pandemic, there’s a big growth in interest in using VR / AR in organizations in all industries. Many times, the core questions in the minds of would-be professional XR adopters are:
- How can we get started?, and
- Is there an app for that?
We all look for the simplest solutions to solve a given problem with the least amount of hassle – and in a cost-effective way. The good news is that there IS a growing selection of turn-key solutions that leverage virtual and augmented reality for applications such as remote meetings, events, data visualization, 3D design and prototyping, skills training, and much more.
At XR4work, we’re collecting, testing, and organizing the market of professional VR/AR apps in one place – as well as gathering first-hand user reviews from professionals just like you who have already started paving the way.
The first part of our mission is to facilitate the discovery and selection of the right XR solution to your needs.
But XR4work is more than just a software directory. Because of the similarities between regular computer games and immersive technology, the visual presentation of these apps is a huge factor in a purchase decision. That’s why we’re putting videos and other visual media front and center in the navigation on the XR4work platform.
“Just buying an app license” also doesn’t answer the many questions on the deployment of this tech in an organization, and the necessary change management, training, etc. For this, we’re leveraging a passionate and knowledgeable expert network to enrich our platform with helpful articles, guides, white papers, and even aggregated news around the professional use of XR.
Thus, the second part of our mission is to inform, instruct and inspire on all aspects of adopting XR for work.
We welcome your contact and invite you to engage with us in all channels. In addition to the ways listed above, you can always shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
