Utopia VR, headquartered in Kelowna, British Columbia, is one of the world’s first “Metaverse-as-a-Service” solutions for business.
Providing a simple, user-based, subscription model, Utopia VR has built several cross-industry and industry-specific business solutions that businesses can easily leverage to increase productivity, collaboration and culture, as well establishing more meaningful customer engagements.
Initial solutions include Hybrid Offices, education, onboarding and training solutions to address Future of Work requirements faced by all organizations today.
Being a web-based service, businesses can deploy and use their private metaverse solutions without any programming, downloading of software or need for special hardware – it all runs in the user’s browser on virtually any device, anywhere, any time.
Utopia VR’s The Metaverse for Business™ is a one-click, web-based, avatar-driven, mobile-friendly Metaverse-as-a-Service solution platform that utilizes innovative 3D web technology. While Utopia VR’s MaaS Business Solutions are designed to be used with just a browser, they can also be enjoyed in an immersive way, using VR headsets such as Google Cardboard, Oculus Quest or HTC Vive. No software needs to be downloaded, and no proprietary hardware is required.
Businesses can select from a wide-range of pre-built metaverse solutions designed to address industry specific and cross-industry requirements. Starting with Future of Work, the Utopia VR Hybrid Office solution addresses an organization’s requirement for hybrid working, including presence, productivity, collaboration and community.
Advanced features of the Utopia VR platform allow it to complement or even replace traditional collaboration tools that organizations adopted during the pandemic. For example, users within a meeting can share presentations, screens, live cameras, 3D objects and more.
Regarded as the next iteration of the web, the metaverse is a virtual space where the physical and digital worlds coexist and interact, encompassing virtual reality, augmented reality, extended reality and mixed reality, as well as making use of artificial intelligence and other technologies.
Analysts such as McKinsey and Bloomberg put the combination of Future of Work and Metaverse markets at a Total Addressable Market of over $800 billion between now and 2030, with a CAGR of more than 39% over that period.
The metaverse overall could create $5 trillion in digital economy opportunities by 2030, according to McKinsey & Company.
