Quebec City, Quebec Canada (PRUnderground) November 30th, 2018
These two North American powerhouses have teamed up to design and build world-class training solutions using virtual reality and augmented reality for businesses around the globe. Having worked with various Fortune 500 companies, ellicom is Canada’s leader in instructional design and training strategy, while OVA, an immersive and spatial computing startup with funding from virtual and augmented reality tech giants, is democratizing virtual and augmented reality with its creative StellarX platform. Together, these industry leaders are transforming businesses, reshaping cultures, and entire industry workflows altogether.
“We’re thrilled to partner with ellicom to integrate our virtual and augmented reality expertise to immersive learning contexts. Together, I strongly believe that we can help businesses tackle this emerging paradigm shift.” — Harold Dumur, CEO at OVA
“We believe partnering with OVA will definitely take immersive learning to the next level. Already we’ve witnessed an increase in information retention and employee engagement. Combining our instructional design expertise to OVA’s immersive technologies, will truly be a game-changer.” — Soula Chronopoulos, President at ellicom
Amongst the successful collaborative projects carried out, OVA and ellicom have designed a safe training simulation environment for Hydro-Québec, which replicates the real-world dangers faced by employees in the field dealing with high-voltage repairs. Not only has this platform improved the training process as a whole, but the energy giant has witnessed how genuinely engaged employees are throughout the immersive learning experience. Up to date, Hydro-Québec has noted a significant increase in training efficiency and employee productivity, as well as reduced training fees and costs.
Today, the dynamic duo is working with Northwell Health, New York’s largest hospital network, to provide doctors with a virtually optimized and immersive stress-reducing program to help prevent burnout, an increasing challenge in this highly stressful environment. This research study is currently underway.
However, in a recent case study published by Intel about their VR collaboration, it is noted that “VR has the potential to not only revolutionize the field of e-learning, but to redesign the global transfer of knowledge as well as how we engage with our audience.”
With a promising partnership in place, both OVA and ellicom look forward to sharing their e-learning knowledge, as well as their virtual and augmented reality expertise to help businesses transform as they adjust to this revolutionary paradigm shift.
At OVA, we’re committed to empowering businesses with immersive experiences that combine the power of spatial computing and artificial intelligence. Our immersive technology expertise paired with our instructional design experience allows businesses to transform as they tackle the immersive shift. Using virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, businesses can take training to the next, build brand awareness, and even optimize operations. As a team, we strive to create the most ethical and personalized experiences, and we always design with privacy in mind and accessibility in mind. For more information, visit www.ova.ai.Press Contact
