New York, NY and Toronto, ON , June 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (NEXCF) (NTAR.CN) (N29.F), a technology and emerging commercial growth company focused on bringing augmented reality (“AR”) to the masses through its web-enabled AR platform for eCommerce, today announced it has launched its ARitize™ University platform to provide on-demand immersive workplace training and educational experiences.
The app-based solution allows companies and educational establishments to leverage all of their existing 2D assets - YouTube videos, PDF documents, PowerPoint decks, images, etc. - and then overlay immersive 3D-AR experiences on top of that content for an interactive training experience that drives productivity. It also utilizes complex algorithms to recognize and relate content to each other, allowing it to create micro-learning courses and recommend relevant training content to each individual user.
“We launched our WebAR for e-Commerce platform in early 2019 and now we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new ARitize™ University platform which will bring our industry-leading AR technology to market within two key industries ripe for innovation - workplace training and education,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO, NexTech. “We already have a ton of interest from existing and new customers for our ARitize™ University and expect to be announcing customers signups shortly. Half of the U.S. workforce will soon be remote, meaning businesses need solutions that can effectively train employees without seeing them in person. Education is also becoming more remote and mobile, with more than six million students taking online classes. There has never been more demand for AR in education and training than there is now, and NexTech has the most advanced solution on the market to meet those needs.”
ARitize™ University is essentially a plug-and-play application that can be up and running in as little as one day. It takes just seconds to upload smaller assets, and the pre-built backend system enables administrators to set user access guidelines quickly. Monthly bulk licensing plans are available to provide a cost-efficient and scalable solution for organizations of any size.
The global workplace training market was worth $362 billion in 2017, according to Statista. Statista also reported that in 2017, 85 percent of businesses use some sort of in-house instructor to manage employee training. This represents a significant opportunity for NexTech’s ARitize™ University to penetrate the market by providing an AR foundation for organizations to build training programs upon.
ARitize™ University is live and will be available for all to download in the Google Play (for Android) and App Store (for iOS) by the end of June.
