Immersive Technologies, the global leader in mining equipment simulators, has announced they are launching a dedicated Learning Systems business unit to service resource companies globally. This new business unit provides customised learning technologies and solutions to drive improved safety, profitability and efficiency. The solutions blend virtual reality, visualisation, e-learning and desktop simulation.
“We’ve developed a range of advanced learning systems that have emerged from our core simulation business over the last 3 or 4 years. These technologies have often been used independently of our simulators and have driven measurable improvements for our customers. As we developed more and more of these learning solutions for our 300+ global customers it became clear that these capabilities should stand on their own two feet. We therefore launched this business unit to better promote these solutions to the resources industry and solve a broader range of customer problems” says David Anderson, Executive Vice President – Sales and Support at Immersive Technologies.
The new business unit will focus on the development and delivery of:
“We know this suite of solutions is already gaining repeat business from customers and has been growing organically, and this additional investment will help us grow faster as we focus more on R&D and identify new industry challenges. Our Learning Systems business unit is structured to first understand the customer challenges and then tailor a solution. We pride ourselves on being industry innovators and we will find the right solution to drive results for our customers – even when the technology doesn’t yet exist,” Anderson says.
Immersive Technologies brings its broader philosophy to this new business unit; solutions must be designed from the ground up to achieve quantifiable returns on customer investment. This philosophy has enabled Immersive Technologies to achieve a comprehensive track record of facilitating breakthrough performance improvements for major resource companies including:
The new Learning Systems business unit is supported by Immersive Technologies’ broad expertise in Training Consultancy, Analytics, Simulation, Engineering and Technical Support, with experts across 14 global locations.
Immersive Technologies developed a touch screen Pre-Start Inspection tool after customer feedback indicating worn and damaged components were not being reported and they needed something to train operators to recognize problems before they become costly to repair. This tool and a myriad of others will now be part of Immersive Technologies’ new Learning Systems business unit.
New products like Virtual Reality systems will be launched under Immersive Technologies’ new Learning Systems business unit.
