Why It’s Time to Partner with a Virtual Reality Company and Stand Out from Your Competition
One of the most frequently asked questions we get as a Virtual Reality company based in Pittsburgh is, “Isn’t Virtual Reality costly?” This may have been a barrier for companies in the past when basic environments would cost more than a typical mid-managers annual salary. With the tech advancements, the release of advanced software development kits (SDK’s) and now seasoned engineers at Virtual Reality companies, the starting cost is likely closer to a month’s salary.
What is driving the demand from clients searching for a Virtual Reality company is they want to write the rules of Virtual Reality based on their individual business needs. They are thinking outside of what’s possible in “actual reality” and leveraging custom VR experiences that Virtual Reality companies can provide to better connect with their clients.
Gone are the days when you can expect to go to a trade show and show attendees a fancy brochure of your product and expect them to buy it. Even the most sophisticated product demos, can’t compete with the memorable, and immersive experience that Virtual Reality companies are providing in custom developed environments.
Have you considered what business challenges you could solve by investing in Virtual Reality? Clients who have engaged with our company to develop a Virtual Reality solution are now able to demo large equipment at tradeshows, host virtual tours, and place employees in positions of high-consequence for safety-related training. Reputable Virtual Reality companies can begin developing your Virtual Reality environment right from the CAD files your company likely already has on-hand. Couple these files with excellent photography and a Virtual Reality company can deliver true-to-life simulations for any industry or vertical.
When working with a vetted Virtual Reality company, they will stress to you the importance of the user experience, in particular, “onboarding” users or acclimating them to the VR experience. While most people will catch on rather quickly, not everyone will understand their limits and will need cues as to how they are able to affect their environment.
While there are several more considerations and lessons learned to be shared, the bottom line here is to show you the value of VR and encourage you to explore how your company could benefit from engaging with a Virtual Reality company. A valuable first step may be to schedule a workshop with a strategist.
