Virtual reality (VR) company Virtalis has announced a new strategic partnership with EAMS Group, a firm specialising in asset and safety management, to incorporate VR into its business.
Using Virtalis’ expertise in both hardware and software, EAMS Group will use the Virtalis Visionary Render software as a means to visualise and improve performance. The software is used by engineers all over the world to transform CAD data into a virtual environment, as such it’ll help EAMS Group enable the Digital Enterprise – the real-time updating of asset performance and condition all visualised in VR.
Andrew Evans, EAMS Group CEO, explained: “With two thirds of CEOs putting digital transformation at the centre of their corporate strategy, the partnering of EAMS Group and Virtalis enables the Digital Enterprise to become a reality. The real time updating of the assets performance and condition being visualised in a virtual environment for the entire enterprise will provide massive benefits for the organisation and its customers. This will further enable a journey to world class performance and digital asset management across the entire asset lifecycle”.
“The Digital Enterprise has been the holy grail for some time and now, thanks to advances in both Asset Management and VR, we can create a seamless, real world composite that allows visualisation to be used in a different way. Our virtual models can be so accurate in reflecting the real world that change can be continually assimilated and even inspections can become virtual. We are confident that by joining these technologies together we will radically drive down costs, increase reliability and improve training,” added Dave Francis, Virtalis’ head of client delivery.
