At Steamroller Digital, we have been using VR in training and meetings for over a decade. We aren’t just VR developers, we are also real-world trainers. Our goal is simple - to bring the power of virtual reality to the training and meetings industry, in a form simpler, more effective and easier to use than ever before.
Virtual technologies can simulate real-world situations, safely, while saving time, money and potential mistakes.
Multi-user VR training is more effective than web-based training, restoring a real classroom participation dynamic.
Virtual meetings restore a group dynamic not possible in videoconferencing or web-based meetings.
With the ability of real group participation combined with advanced visualization, VR meetings promote true collaboration and “outside the box” thinking.
VR systems help visualize hard-to-understand situations and systems.
VR meetings and training are as effective as in-person meetings, saving time and money over travel.
