Virtus Tech is a startup that's bridging Web 2.0 with Web 3.0 in VR training by creating a no-code VR platform for businesses to build training content across all sectors.

virtus tech logo.We wrote previously about virtual reality being used to help people to see situations from the point of view of those involved in order to develop empathy. This works because of the immersive nature of VR, which is also part of what makes it a good tool for training in any number of disciplines. Feeling more like you are in a certain situation has a way of helping us to react to things in ways we might in reality, which better highlights gaps in our knowledge, as well as aiding information absorption in a way that sitting in front of a text book or lecturer doesn’t.

Digi-creator.67325d1fCardiff-based VR startup Virtus Tech creates ‘no code’ software, which means that clients can easily build their own customised, unlimited library of training materials, accessible on any VR device. One example of the range of sectors already adopting the technology is NHS Wales, which has used the platform to create the ‘Wales Virtual Hospital’, a centralised platform to build and distribute VR-based learning materials. 

This is exactly where Virtus Tech is most valuable - allowing clients, who obviously know best what they need, to build their own library of materials with the DIGI CREATOR creators platform, with their own customised scenarios and questions specific to their own needs. The DIGI DATA dashboard shows a deep breakdown of each learner’s performance in the VR simulations, allowing an insight into where scenarios might need to be tweaked, as well as giving a better idea of how to improve individual learners’ training.

In September, Virtus Tech announced that they had raised £300,000 in a pre-seed round led by SFC Capital, with participation from angel investors. This comes a year after the startup secured investment from Google for Startups, as part of Tramshed Tech's Startup Academy, which also provided mentorship. This funding will go towards growing the team, expanding into wider international markets, and continuing R&D to improve the experience, as well as to introduce new elements to make it even more immersive.
