Leeds IT provider launches VR support service


IT solutions provider pure technology group has announced new tech service pureVR.

The company hopes pureVR will support turnover growth of 30 per cent in 2019-2020.

pureVR uses multiple augmented, assisted, mixed and virtual reality technologies, including Toshiba dynaEdge, which is a wearable device that acts as an remote assistance tool.

It is linked to a Windows 10 wearable computer, integrating with Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams to aid collaboration between in-house and remote workers.

Wearers can send real-time updates to staff based at the office and call for remote support via the glass as required.

“We recently installed the dynaEdge solution for a national engineering and services firm – it blends on-the-job training with classroom learning and can transform the way the business develops apprentices,” said PTG’s Group technology solutions manager, Simeon Banks.

Explaining the rationale behind the launch, PTG’s group COO Cliff Fox added: “We believe that VR has a huge potential to enhance all organisations.

“It’s far bigger than just a gaming concept. This disruptive tech has the power to remould and improve the world of work as we know it – offering a revolutionary advantage for the education, training, maintenance, field service and retail sectors particularly.”
