SynergyXR: Virtual onboarding delivers accelerated learning

Grundfos uses the SynergyXR platform to onboard and teach employees from around the world about the magical journey of how water flows from the ground to the house

Virtual onboarding delivers accelerated learning

In light of continued travel advisories and social distancing, Grundfos – the world’s largest pump manufacturer – recognized the benefits of bringing employees together remotely without the need to gather at a physical location. In the first iteration of their XR classroom program, they quickly realized that their new approach to training offers a lot of other stellar advantages – just as in many of their other XR projects. Since 2010, they’ve been partnering with SynergyXR to become a frontrunner in using a wide range of XR technologies.

In 2022, we expect to use VR on a larger scale for new hires. It typically takes six months to get a new employee up to 80% efficiency. If you can do it faster and better by taking them through a virtual experience, it really makes a lot of sense. It is enormously valuable.

About SynergyXR

SynergyXR is a powerful B2B, SaaS platform that lets companies build their own Corporate Metaverse to communicate, collaborate, and learn with extended reality without having to be a tech wiz. SynergyXR is designed to work across the entire production value chain. Whether it is planning a new production facility, training workers on how to operate the production line, or servicing machines in remote locations, every company and employee feel like SynergyXR was designed just for them.

You can only fly so many people to Bjerringbro, Denmark. We are 19,000 employees, so it makes a lot of sense to do more projects virtually.
