Some innovations find their way into business applications after starting out as fun leisure activities. Drones and virtual reality (VR) are two good examples of this. Evidence of their gradual spread from their geek-enclave roots is clear to see in the status they both command at CeBIT 2017 as the star attractions in the "Unmanned Systems & Solutions" and "Virtual & Augmented Reality" exhibition zones. One of the companies keenly exploring business uses for these new technologies is eachTick GmbH, based in Cologne. The company is demonstrating its “Virtofy” interactive virtual reality presentation system live at CeBIT, which is aimed at enabling companies to reap the benefits of VR for practical professional uses.
On the brink of its market launch, in essence Virtofy offers virtual tours using VR goggles. VR tours make a convincing and appealing showcase for projects and can also demonstrate products far more realistically than by conventional means, in a way that is bound to boost sales. They can take the form of guided tours or allow customers to explore for themselves, which is easily accomplished even by first-time users. What's more, Virtofy can run wireless group VR presentations and its editor enables users to create their own VR tours - plus much more besides. Virtofy is billed as the perfect system for boosting sales, improving project management or simply transferring knowledge that sticks!
