October 28, 2022 – ArborXR, a provider of an augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) device management platform, has recently announced a new partnership with Bodyswaps, a provider of immersive learning software that allows learners to practice soft skills in VR with AI-enabled analytical feedback.
Bodyswaps joins ArborXR as a partner alongside other independent software vendors (ISVs), which include Moth+Flame, EngageVR, Futurus, Miller Creative, and 3DOrganon. Currently, 400+ ISVs use ArborXR as their MDM, according to the company.
Bodyswaps designs and specializes in VR soft skills training apps for corporate and education use cases, including anti-racism, leadership training, impactful communication, conflict management, public speaking or mastering job interviews. The company’s training platform places learners in VR environments where they face life-like situations. Trainees can then practice soft skills and learn through behavioral analysis about their body language, actions, and words from an alternative perspective in VR. Through the partnership, the company will now share its content directly with its clients through the ArborXR platform’s remote app distribution functionality.
Commenting on the partnership, Christophe Mallet, Co-Founder and CEO of Bodyswaps, said: “We are seeing a growing need from education and enterprise clients for managing VR headsets at scale. Working with ArborXR removes friction from our product because our clients can now easily manage their devices, remotely install our apps, track analytics and know where devices are. This is essential for the next stage of the industry.”
With ArborXR organizations can remotely manage XR headsets, install apps and control what users see and do in VR. ISVs like Bodyswaps are able to upload apps to ArborXR and grant (or revoke) access to their content. All apps and files can be immediately available within a client’s dashboard, and all future app updates can be installed automatically.
As a result, ArborXR helps to eliminate friction from the VR device management process. The company’s solution can also simplify VR pilot programs by providing free support for up to 50 devices, making it easier for companies to get started with a pilot project that involves the use of virtual reality.
“We are excited to partner with Bodyswaps to help them scale their product and make VR experiences even more accessible. Bodyswaps is a leader in the space and are creating innovative content that will immensely impact education and enterprise organizations,” said Brad Scoggin, Co-Founder and CEO of ArborXR.
