Challenge n°2 :

The overwhelming amount of accidents in this sector is often a KPI for logistics firms, especially since reducing them has a beneficial impact on insurance premiums. The challenge however is how to minimise the number of accidents that happen.

How Immersive Factory’s solution helps overcome this challenge:

Over 30 immersive workshops that can be done repeatedly to allow faster and more efficient training to accelerate skills development. Thanks to the VR aspect of the exercises, the impressions of potential dangers are so realistic that the consequences are engraved in the learner’s mind which will aid in reducing the number of work accidents.

Challenge n°3 :

Communication in logistics management during the Covid-19 Crisis has been difficult. This includes the issues of disrupted supply chains, difficulty sourcing raw materials, higher border security and lack of available transport.

How Immersive Factory’s solution helps overcome this challenge:

The solution to this challenge could be 15-minute safety meetings with the goal to convey an essential message and to involve associates in a participative approach. Associates are keen to participate in engrossing activities and gladly take part in an experience when it is presented as a game! This is exactly what immersive learning, such as Immersive Factory offers it, allows organizers to do. Thanks to a fully digital collaborative platform, associates find themselves inside a customized hub where they can discuss the theme selected for the 15-minute safety meeting. They can also access immersive modules as a team or participate in workshops available to them on a variety of media platforms. VR (using an HTC or Vive FOCUS-type headset, for instance), PC, mobile devices (tablet or smartphone), Mac… Whatever the category of equipment they have at their disposal, they will be able to enjoy the activities.
