We do not make our content available in 2-D for use on laptops, PCs, tablets, or smartphones. This approach takes into account i) the interactive nature of our content modules; ii) the role gaze-tracking plays in our ability to deliver insights to customers; and iii) the inherent benefits and advantages of immersive technologies that are entirely lost in flat content.
Our platform will not replace your computer-based training programs; rather, it will actually enhance its performance when the two are used together. The two methods are fundamentally different yet complementary offerings in the training space.
