Virtual Reality to enhance employee training through immersive training experiences
Geoffrey Allen, director
Mersus Technologies, based in Athlone, has developed an immersive virtual reality platform that replicates real-world environments and scenarios with astonishing precision. This has been achieved through the combination of traditional animation art with the most advanced computer-generated image technology.
Their team of experienced engineers and designers possesses expertise in software development, cloud computing, data analytics, and digital transformation. Additionally, they specialize in Virtual Reality (VR) training solutions that help businesses improve their employee training programs by creating immersive, interactive, and engaging training experiences.
Mersus Technologies has solidified its position as a prominent player in the immersive technology field. In 2022, the team won the 'Best Training & Development' program award at the National Manufacturing Awards, as well as the New Frontiers category at the Irish Times Innovation Awards. Their focus is on providing superior customer service and delivering measurable results for their clients.
As organizations seek to embrace Virtual Reality (VR), issues arise related to the cost and return on investment (ROI) in delivering engaging learning experiences for today's workforce. The expansion of VR training faces challenges due to the cost of creating content, along with the technical limitations required for user-friendly mobile hardware.
The use of Mersus Technologies' 'Low-Code' Virtual Reality platform to standardize highly specialized training processes will democratize VR and reduce costs by empowering the industry to create VR training in-house.
The evolution in the computer industry has identified Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) as having the potential to become the next major computing platform. These technologies are disruptive to the point of their predecessors, the personal computer and the more prevalent mobile device. New markets will be created, and existing ones need to adapt or face the consequences.
