Why AEC Teams Are Turning to Virtual Collaboration
It’s no secret that virtual reality can help teams in the building industry collaborate in new, exciting ways, leading to better, faster design decisions, better BIM coordination, and less waste on the job site. The work-from-home era has only increased the need for better collaboration tools when working with 3D models, BIM, CAD, and point clouds.
But the first step – getting set up with a VR headset – can be challenging.
As Vrex CEO, Hans Johansen notes, “At VREX, we’ve seen that a major barrier our customers spent time on was sourcing and configuring the hardware needed to enjoy the full benefits of VR collaboration.”
The team at HP felt similarly: “We believe virtual reality will soon be an essential tool for business to become smarter and more efficient…companies still don’t feel confident enough to innovate themselves and struggle to find the right content development partner to help them” says Cecile Tezenas, VR business development manager at HP.
And so, the teams partnered together on a turnkey solution.
“It’s the ultimate use case”, continues Tezenas, “Making 3D models more accessible and easier to understand with VR in a collaboration cloud service. Bundling award-winning HP Reverb Gen2, powerful workstations, and Vrex software will remove many barriers to VR adoption and pave the way for other VR application areas.”
With the bundle, teams now have one main point of contact for all their VR needs, and can take advantage of HP’s global delivery, service, and support network.
