Connected Reality: How an agency makes VR accessible for everyone with easy-to-understand standard products
Connected Reality specialized in consulting business in all aspects regarding trailblazing future technologies and delivering captivating Extended Reality experiences. Extended Reality is used as an umbrella term for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). As an agency, they develop and integrate huge and highly individualized solutions on a daily basis. However, these specialized and advanced solutions are often made for high-end devices and limited to specific use cases. For Connected Reality, showing their clients opportunities for quick yet impactful ways to access the medium is essential. Thus, they are also looking continuously for fast and efficient ways to let their clients utilize Extended Reality in the most effective manner possible.
With this goal in mind, Connected Reality created a multitude of service packages named “xr easy” that are easily and directly applicable for their intended use cases. Whether it is product presentations in Virtual Reality, virtual tours, safety trainings or onboarding experiences – with these prefabricated solution packages, clients are able to easily grasp the specifics of a product and make fast decisions.
Virtual Reality has grown up
Virtual Reality is no longer just the nice gimmick it was a couple of years ago. Companies worldwide rely on the immersive and interactive technology to engage their audiences. Not only large companies, but also small and medium-sized enterprises know exactly what they want and need to integrate VR into their business processes. They expect flexible and reliable solutions that seamlessly fit into their business and add value to their portfolio. There is no room for experimentation – companies need concise solutions for clearly defined use cases, and they need them fast. Agencies and service providers need to find a way to cater to those needs. Industry experts Connected Reality did exactly that.
Standardized products help clients make decisions
VR has become an integral part of everyday business life. This results in higher client expectations even for faster and less elaborate VR experiences: clients do not want to implement VR just for the sake of it, they expect a valuable addition to their portfolio, clearly apparent added value and versatile applicability.
Furthermore, for agencies like Connected Reality, complex development processes and prolonged client acquisition can make scaling their business a difficult task. The decision making process for clients is usually rather long, since often the development of VR experiences is quite costly and the finished product clients can expect is frequently not quite clear to them. That is why there is a clear need for standardized and concise service packages to allow for easier decision making, reducing the complexity and the financial effort on both sides. To summarize, even technically less demanding VR experiences need to meet the clients expectations regarding quality, characteristics and business value. All of these requirements make the use of a flexible, fast and stable solution absolutely paramount for Connected Reality to be able to meet this demand.
