VR learning platform Strivr launched a partner program designed to enhance the capabilities of virtual reality for organizations trying to improve workforce performance.
As the use of VR increases — steadily, if not like wildfire — more employers have tried to leverage the technology as they work to attract, retain and engage talent. Though not its original purpose, Strivr, which was built for athletics training, turned toward immersive learning for organizations in 2016..@Strivrlabs' partner program is meant to enhance VR as employers try to improve workforce performance. #HRTech #HR Click To Tweet
In an interview with the HCM Technology Report, CEO Derek Belch said the company “has built an enterprise grade software platform that allows organizations to create virtual reality content and manage that content remotely through the cloud.”
VR Learning to Aid Performance
According to Strivr, the goal of its partner program is to bring companies together in order to help improve workforce performance and optimize the value of VR for enterprises. So far, partners in the program include Accenture, DDI, Insight, PICO, Qualcomm, Start Beyond, Strategos and VMware.
The platform and partner program support increased adoption of VR at the enterprise level, while meeting the growing demand for enterprise-grade solutions that can address specific organizational requirements.
Three categories of partners exist within the Strivr Partner Program: content, services and technology. Content partners create VR experiences using Strivr’s platform to improve employee performance through learning. Services partners optimize the value of enterprise VR through strategy, curriculum design, deployment and change management services. Technology partners comprise a network of application, software and hardware development companies that design VR solutions. All work together in Strivr’s ecosystem to deliver immersive experiences, the company said.
Belch said his company has always wanted to help customers find ways to better engage their teams and enhance performance through VR. “With this new partner program, we are excited to welcome an ecosystem of like-minded partners,” he said.
