Whether you’ve developed your own training software, want to license existing content, or need a custom solution, distributing that content can be a significant challenge. Trying to get the right content loaded on the right device in the right location for the right learner is not simple for a large or global organization. And managing this as part of a training program where you can track use and performance? Not possible. At least it didn’t used to be.
For those companies that have experimented with VR and found it too difficult to implement, this article details the new tools available to streamline access and distribute VR content to employees anywhere in the world, anytime.
The ideal way to manage and distribute VR content
The PIXO platform makes VR training distribution simple. With one system, enterprises can provision VR content directly to devices and users for immediate download, enabling the technology to scale.
Our all-in-one, cloud-based platform allows organizations to access, distribute, and manage all of their VR training (and other XR content) across numerous global endpoints and thousands of devices and users, all from one easy-to-use, web-based portal. For businesses looking to distribute VR Training content and use it simply and easily across an organization, it represents the perfect solution.
How does it work?
The PIXO platform gives administrators an easy way to create, edit, and manage users within their organization. Administrators can extend and revoke permissions, collect and analyze session data on dashboards, and distribute training content directly to XR devices. Once provisioned, content can be downloaded on the headset by users and played instantly. PIXO has a user app that is downloaded onto the VR headset itself. When users login via the headset, they can pull any content they’ve been given permission to use.
Why existing tools (like MDM) aren’t enough
MDM solutions have a device-centric approach to content distribution. This means the exact headset a learner will use needs to be pre-loaded with content. This is a difficult task at the scale of an enterprise training program. An MDM also requires many steps to achieve this (see illustration)—which is cumbersome at scale.
PIXO has taken a different approach that makes XR content distribution simple. PIXO’s approach focuses on the user and the specific content needed by that user. No forethought or planning is required to ensure the right content is delivered to a specific device at the right time.
What content can PIXO distribute?
The PIXO platform has a library of existing standard VR training content available for licensing and use. The library contains training courses for everything from soft skills to hard skills that apply across industries. There is also industry-specific content and training to meet OSHA requirements. Any of this content can be distributed using the PIXO platform. PIXO can also distribute custom VR training content, regardless of who created it.
But PIXO doesn’t stop at VR training. The PIXO platform is extremely flexible in its design as it can manage and distribute any VR, MR, or AR content (as a group this is referred to as XR, or extended reality, content). And PIXO can deliver that content to any device. That means that PIXO can work as a company-wide XR orchestration platform. And that means it can grow alongside the increasing use cases for XR technology in the workplace.
Clear benefits to using PIXO for XR content
VR training experiences allow employees to learn and test themselves in a 3D immersive environment without negative repercussions. And not only does VR increase the learning and retention rate for employees, but it’s also a major draw for recruiting new employees who see working with VR as a perk of the job.
As the need for VR training increases, even the largest enterprises can use PIXO to access a complete end-to-end solution to distribute and manage content across several continents and end users efficiently. Fundamentally, the PIXO platform was designed to address the challenges of these new technologies so that corporations can take advantage of them.
The key benefits of using PIXO for XR content management are:
- Reduces the complexity of bringing VR content into your training program
- Provides access to the world’s largest library of VR training content
- Makes it easy to manage, distribute, and track use of VR content
- Scales at an enterprise level and can grow with your use of XR
