With its “VRdirect Studio” platform, Munich-based software company VRdirect enables companies to create and publish their own Virtual Reality content with absolutely no programming effort. Typical use cases of these VR apps range from corporate training and development processes to recruiting and onboarding of personnel to deployment scenarios in sales, customer support or in the context of trade fairs. Once created, the content can be accessed on all common end devices. Users are thus brought particularly close to the action and have the feeling of really engaging with the simulated environment.
