Virtual Reality (VR) is not just for individual users. In recent years, more and more companies have been developing enterprise software that helps businesses to streamline their workflows, increase profits, and cut losses.
This article will examine the best VR enterprise software and the companies behind them.
Pico – All-In-One VR Solutions For Enterprise
Pico is a company offering all-in-one (AIO) solutions for companies that want to implement VR into their business. For starters, Pico has VR headsets that are designed specifically for enterprise clients:
Neo 3 Pro and Neo 3 Pro Eye
This is a top-notch VR headset offering 4K resolution, comfortable weight distribution, and several key features. For example, it has the Kiosk Mode, which allows businesses to stream their desired output straight into the headset.
Let’s say a company is participating in an exhibition and wants to show its newest product in the virtual environment. Instead of playing that video manually for every new person who puts on the headset, the Kiosk Mode starts playing the video automatically from the beginning to every new person putting it on.
In addition to these enterprise-level VR headsets, Pico offers software like Pico VR Streaming Assistant and Pico Developer Platform. All of that allows businesses to easily integrate their vision right into the headsets.
