By providing ARuVR’s Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) platform and solutions, Mintra customers will benefit from access to immersive and risk-free training, regardless of where they happen to be in the world. ARuVR’s product seamlessly integrates with TrainingPortal, Mintra’s industry-leading learning and competence management system.
The combined ARuVR and Mintra proposition blends both theory and practice, giving learners knowledge through eLearning and then practical application within an immersive experience. This powerful combination increases learning absorption, engagement and satisfaction as well as improves knowledge retention. The result is a learner better equipped for the realities of working safely in hazardous environments. In addition to the improvements in workforce knowledge and awareness, businesses also benefit from efficiencies in reduced training time, travel costs and carbon footprint.
ARuVR solves many of the previous barriers to the widespread adoption and deployment of AR and VR training, by allowing code-free content generation, live real-time and interactive streaming and is fully cross-compatible across mobile, tablet, desktop and XR devices. ARuVR’s patented platform allows trainers to simultaneously connect with multiple trainees anywhere in the world.
Blended and virtual learning is considered critical to the digital transformation goals of the maritime and energy industries to not only attract and retain talent, increase user satisfaction and improve engagement rates, but to safely and efficiently upskill and re-skill the existing workforce.
