Virtual reality is some of the most interesting technology of the decade, with the potential to transform a lot of industries. It offers many opportunities for businesses. And today we will cover 2 benefits you can get employing VR – saving time and money. Here’s how.
1. Solve problems
Where a printed rendering will reveal only so much, virtual reality is the closest thing we have to being actually inside a space. Before virtual reality, there were some things – like sightlines or other obscurities – that were barely noticeable until a space had been constructed.
Viewing spaces in virtual reality has all the magic of constructing a space, without any construction required. What you see in virtual reality is what you get – and it’s a whole lot cheaper to predict these issues before the hammer and nails come out.
2. Travel less
While travel is only one aspect of the collaboration process, anyone who deals with high-touch clients knows that getting on the road is more than an inconvenience: it’s also a huge time-waster.
While we’ll never claim that virtual reality should (or will) replace real face-to-face human contact, it can certainly reduce the need for unnecessary touchpoints. Got a quick revision you want a client to take a look at? Send them a link and it’ll be loaded in their VR headset in an instant.
Our clients report cutting down on client visits by about 50% – and the best part is that virtual reality communicates your vision so clearly that clients aren’t left feeling neglected or confused!
3. Shorten the collaboration process
Virtual reality’s star quality is its ability to communicate your vision in all its glory – which has impacts on the collaboration process. Visualization is particularly important for your clients, who are unlikely to be as skilled as you at picturing themselves in a space from a simple picture.
Our clients have told us that where clients used to take hours or even days to make decisions about certain elements of a design, virtual reality reduces this to seconds. The more they can see and experience your design, the less talking you have to do.
