Technology is increasingly being implemented into business strategy as a way to reduce costs, increase efficiency and boost profits. From software and automation tools, to AI, new technologies are helping businesses to reach new height.
One particular technology that has seen in increase in use over the last few years is Virtual Reality, or VR. This immersive technology is being used in a number of industries to boost business growth. The protective VR case experts at the Case Farm have put together a short guide on how industries are making the most of this incredible tech. Take a look below!
Manufacturing is a huge and complicated process, and each individual part that is being made must be inspected and tested. Through the power of VR, manufacturing experts can inspect parts and see how they fit and work together. This means that experts can remotely from their home, reducing travel expenses and other resources.
Estate agents and realtors spend a lot of their time travelling to show potential customers around properties. This is a particularly difficult problem if they are selling property abroad, or have a large client base to manage.
With VR, clients can visit properties remotely at their leisure, and explore the property and grounds from the comfort of their own home. This frees up the realtors time to see more clients, sell more property and therefore boost their business growth.
Training and coaching
One of the largest business expenses comes from training and coaching staff. Paying for time off, travel and accommodation means that costs soon add up to an eye watering amount. With VR, employees can receive personalised training, and put their skills to practise in simulated scenarios. This saves businesses time and money, and helps their employees to gain valuable skills.
Therapists and mental health professionals
Therapists and mental health professionals normally see clients in person, which means hiring out a building or room from where they can run their business. This can be costly, particularly in major towns and cities. With the power of VR technology, therapists and mental health professionals can now give the same personal treatment style, without having to travel or pay fees for treatment rooms.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of industries using VR, so it will be incredibly exciting to see this technology emerge and develop further over the coming years.
