We are delighted to be able to tell you about a very exciting project which has been keeping us busy for the last six months or so.
In the summer of 2012 we were approached by a start-up business with a vision for a new way of delivering business coaching and consultancy. Using a technique called 'sociodrama', their idea involved the use of gaming technology to create metaphorical representations of real-world scenarios in a virtual landscape – a radically different approach to any other coaching product in the marketplace. They were looking for a company to help them build the software platform that would make this vision a reality and our long-standing track record in developing 3D virtual environments and managing virtual events naturally brought them to our door.
But it wasn't just our specialist knowledge in this area that we were able to bring to the project. They also needed a name and an identity so our branding team set to work on this whilst our web team began building the business a website.
Meanwhile our technical development team were busy building and testing the commercial software platform, a process which took nearly half a year before the product was ready for it's first commercial release in February 2013.
With the application quickly gaining recognition in the coaching and consultancy arena we are continuing development and every release sees the addition of new features. As ProReal grows as a business we are there to support them. And, as testament to their faith in us, Dom Raban, our MD, now sits on their Board of Advisors.
