With an ever expanding interest in Virtual Reality and an extremely large demand on VR headsets it’s undeniable VR has come to stay. It’s your chance as a business to take advantage of this new opportunity to favour your company.
If you are wondering whether VR is the right fit for your company doubt no more. The advantage of Virtual Reality and VR headsets is their ability to adapt to every different industry. You can think of this as a white canvas, which you can paint with your business’s brand, mission, work or anything related to your product or service.
Just to name a few, here’s a list of the uses different industries are giving to VR:
- Virtual tours
- Training of new employees
- Product testing and showcasing
- Data analysis
Virtual tours are an amazing asset for a wide range of industries. Both architectural firms and real estate companies are able to give house or construction tours without having to be on site, simplifying encounters and meetings for you and your clients. Even if you are a decorator or wedding planner, you’d be able to benefit from showing your client the venue or mock up the decoration of a house for them to experience in VR without leaving your office.
If you think VR is complicated or not relevant to your business imagine being able to give a PowerPoint presentation in 3D, this way you’d get the undivided attention of your audience. Is your company hiring and you’d like to see how candidates would react to different scenarios? Even when training employees VR comes as a great help, allowing you to present modules and activities. Based on the mock situations performed through VR, you can test your employees on what they learned and evaluate their performances.
Virtual Reality is a cost effective way of developing a product or service, giving the opportunity to detect design problems at an early stage or testing prototypes without having to develop many versions, which can often be very expensive and time-consuming.
If data analysis is required VR should definitely be considered. It prevents distractions, as it focuses you field of vision within certain parameters. Being able to use a 360 degree space there is a much more real estate to display your data. Being able to interact with the environment can allow a bigger connection with the data displayed and what is means.
Virtual Reality and VR viewers are stablishing their place in the market, it’s now your turn to do the same.
