London (UK), July 2020 - Enterprise virtual reality (VR) software company Immerse has announced a partnership with multinational energy business BP. bp will integrate their own VR content into the Immerse Virtual Enterprise Platform (VEP). The training will be deployed internationally, and the platform will generate detailed data and reports on learner progress.
Tom Symonds, CEO of Immerse, said, "The team at Immerse are excited to work with bp to support the global rollout of their VR learning initiatives. Virtual reality is in increasingly high demand as a learning and assessment tool, especially in an industry in which reporting on compliance remains key. With Immerse's platform, the impact of VR is no longer anecdotal, but clear and evidenced: organisations like bp can truly measure the success of the initiative and the upskilling of learners."
Anthony Del Barto, Learning Technology Manager at bp, said, "VR and simulation are key enablers to bp’s digital agenda and initiatives to provide our workforce global accessibility to best-in-class training. The value of data in the workforce is critical, and the Immerse platform allows us to gather the vital information that we need in order to upskill our employees efficiently in an innovative and engaging way. This is both beneficial to us as a company, but also to our staff to ensure they're getting the best learning and development possible."
Immerse is uniquely positioned in that they have invested time in understanding the needs of large enterprises. As a result, they have developed a true open platform, a platform that answers the nuances and challenges of deploying and scaling VR training, and which helps maximise employee performance.
