This month, WorldViz celebrates its 15th year in virtual reality.

When we started, VR was barely an industry. Rather, it was a community of passionate individuals who believed that it could be used for a range of beneficial purposes, such as advancing scientific research, education, training, communication, and collaboration.

WorldViz founders: Matthias Pusch, Peter Schlueer, Andy Beall

Back then, our belief superseded the available technology, so our team of innovators, PhDs, psychologists, computer scientists, and forward-thinking executives developed our own solutions. We took our skills learned in corporations, game companies, and government research agencies to create VR software and hardware that was focused on helping our customers achieve success.

We are extremely grateful to our customers who have accompanied us on our journey of innovation in VR. We’re shouting out a big thanks to Accenture, Boeing, Caterpillar, Lockheed Martin, MIT, NASA, Nokia, Perkins + Will, Suffolk Construction, Stanford University, Turner MRS, and to the countless others with whom we’ve had the pleasure to work.

In the past few years, the world of VR has exploded and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We’re now seeing what we always knew to be possible come to life. But the more things change, the more they remain the same. Our original vision for VR has only proven more true. VR is the ideal solution for scientific research, education, training, communication, and collaboration.

Which is why we’ve boosted development of our virtual reality SaaS platform for enterprise collaboration. Codenamed Skofield, it is designed to help non-technical users meet “face-to-face” in VR and collaborate, problem solve, communicate, sell, and train. Look out for our open beta program invitation soon!

We can’t wait to see where the journey will take us next, and we invite you to join us in discovering that future together.
