Contact with objects and equipment is one of the major contributors to accidents in the workplace, accounting for over 26% of non-fatal work-related injuries (NSC, 2018).
VR training allows participants to experience potentially dangerous environments and practice safe operations and procedures. Thanks to our VirtualGrasp technology, workplace equipment is accurately represented in virtual environments to support complex interactions that reflect real-life operational scenarios.
VR training can complement traditional learning, e-learning and blended learning by being able to use the immersive nature of VR to heighten senses and re-create the urgency of emergency situations, giving participants the confidence to apply training in real-life.
VR training radically reduces training time through a more efficient and natural learning process to address skill shortages and employee churn.
Shifting skill sets due to the introduction of advanced technologies in manufacturing require more advanced and in-depth training. The retirement of baby boomers combined with the slower training process offered by traditional training is leading to a severe skill deficit with estimated 2.4M unfilled jobs by 2028 in the US alone.
New employees are onboarded more efficiently and become more productive faster, with hands-on confidence built through learn-by-doing.
Existing employees have access to more engaging learning, facilitating personal development and competence.
Access to detailed reporting, together with existing e-learning or traditional learning, can be used to help guide and support employee development and validate VR training.
Virtual training is delivered through low-cost and readily available VR headsets, either self-sourced or available through the Gleechi procurement programme.
As part of the procurement process, VR headsets are provided with support for MDM that can secure content and provide remote management features. Depending on the VR headset manufacturer, extended enterprise programmes are also available to provide additional coverage and piece-of-mind.
The Gleechi platform is run as a fully managed service, offering on-premises, hybrid and public cloud possibilities. SSO can be used to centrally manage user credentials towards an existing IdP (SAML), supporting federated access to specific content by user types.
