Norwegian company VREX is entering into a partnership with HP to bundle its collaboration SaaS application with the HP Reverb G2 VR headset.
This integration means that architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) teams around the world will now have a single point of contact for HP VR equipment when signing up for VREX, according to a press release.
VREX believes that the travel restrictions and home working bought about by the pandemic necessitates better tools for working with 3D models, BIM, CAD, and point clouds.
Cecile Tezenas, VR business development manager at HP, said: “At HP we believe VR will soon be an essential tool for business to become smarter and more efficient.
“Adoption hurdles are in the process of being solved: to scale VR into valuable and engaging tools companies still don’t feel confident to innovate themselves and struggle to find the right content development partner to help them. This is why we partner with VREX to bring a turn-key solution.”
Hans Johansen, CEO at VREX, added: “At VREX we saw that a major barrier our customers had was sourcing and configuring the hardware needed to enjoy the full benefits of our VR collaboration platform.
“Our customers deserve the same global delivery, service and support on their hardware as they get from VREX on our SaaS.
“As we love the HP Reverb Gen2 headset, the best VR headset for business in my opinion, partnering with HP with its global capabilities is the perfect fit.”
