Jan. 10, 2023– Strivr, the leading platform provider for enterprise VR at scale, today announces that the company has been recognized in Brandon Hall Group’s Excellence in Technology Awards in the Best Advance in Augmented and Virtual Reality category.

Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts, and executives based upon these criteria: product, unique differentiators value proposition, and measurable results. The 2022 Excellence in Technology Awards were split across six program areas: Learning and Development, Talent Management, Talent Acquisition, Workforce Management, Sales Enablement, and Future of Work. Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards were bestowed based on numeric scores. 

“We are honored to celebrate the foresight and ingenuity of our Technology award winners!” said Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke. “More than 80% of employers are optimistic about advancing digital transformation in 2023, our research shows, and that is because these organizations and individuals are laser-focused on technology innovation.”

Strivr’s platform provides an end-to-end solution to help companies overcome some of the biggest obstacles they encounter when they adopt and implement VR training. Brandon Hall Group recognized that dozens of enterprises, including Walmart, Sprouts, and MGM have successfully deployed Strivr’s technology at scale and measured the impact of VR training on their workforce and businesses. To date, Strivr has deployed nearly 30,000 headsets and conducted 1.6M+ sessions in VR, and has taken significant steps in expanding the ecosystem in this industry through launching an SDK offering and the Strivr Partnership Program in 2022.
