Anglo American chooses Immerse Platform to consolidate its VR learning content

In Virtual Reality News

June 20, 2023 – Enterprise extended reality (XR) software provider Immerse has recently announced that Anglo American, a global mining company, is leveraging the Immerse Platform to bring all of its virtual reality (VR) content into one place. According to Immerse, the partnership will enable Anglo American to more easily and securely host, manage, measure, and distribute learning content to its globally dispersed staff.

Immerse provides an open and scalable immersive ecosystem for enterprise XR training technology and solutions. The company’s Immerse Platform is a content aggregation, distribution, and reporting platform that enables companies to create, distribute, easily implement, and measure performance for custom and off-the-shelf XR training content.

Immerse noted that today, enterprises are adopting immersive learning and developing content for a wide range of use cases. However, one of the challenges for multinational organizations can be ensuring that the content being created and used has been standardized across a global workforce to ensure consistency. By housing everything under one platform, Anglo American is ensuring that there is a central dashboard where teams can access their learning management system (LMS) to distribute programs globally, as well as view and leverage data measurement.

The integration is focused on 49 extended reality (XR) modules from 7 vendors, mainly around health and safety and technical training. The project also includes integrations into Anglo American’s LMS (Success Factors) with single sign-on, as well as standardizing many of the data and metrics that come out of their current XR modules, according to Immerse.

“Navigating the XR environment can be extremely tricky for enterprises, and with so many companies offering VR content, consolidation and measurement is often an after-thought,” said Immerse CEO, Tom Symonds. “We’re honored to have been selected by Anglo American as the platform to help bring their catalog of immersive content into one place and help revolutionize their immersive learning experience moving forward.” 

In addition to the Immerse Platform, Immerse also provides an industry marketplace for third-party content that provides companies with access to a wide range of immersive content in one place. The storefront also provides new and recurring revenue for content developers and acts as a tool to broaden their customer base on a global scale, according to the company.
