Warp VR 2021 year in review

Thanks to many of you, 2021 has been a very successful year for Warp VR. As we move closer to our 5th birthday, we're excited to share a recap of our top moments and celebrate our progress as we work to revolutionize the way companies upskill their employees.

Platform

We improved our immersive learning platform Warp Studio with many new features, including:

  • Updated testing controls that make scenario testing easier and quicker.
  • Device sharing improvements with easier sign in and more hygiene.
  • New scenarios, trainees, groups and media layout that make it easier to organize scenarios and media files and manage trainees.
  • A new video editor that helps to accurately position interactive elements in immersive training scenarios (available next January).

The number of training scenarios played doubled compared to 2020, and we introduced workshops to create and implement effective training scenarios.

In September, we launched the Warp Store for off-the-shelf immersive training content like company emergency response training, healthcare professional courses and corporate soft skills scenarios. Since the launch, training scenarios have been played over 6,000 times.

"This helps me to imagine how trainees would respond and what the best questions are to use. Warp VR did a terrific job in explaining this to us. Really appreciate it." - Brunei Shell Petroleum

Company

In 2021 we realized a 140% growth with new customers like CINOP, Salling Group, AIS Thailand, Saasen Groep, Brunei Shell Petroleum and Marsh McLennan. Watch our webinars to learn more how our customers and partners use Warp VR.

To continue our expansion into EMEA and North America, we participated in the Dutch Basecamp Globaliser program, opened a new office in the Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam, added B2B SaaS expert Geert Jan Kraan as our first Marketing Lead and secured a €1M seed investment led by a group of business angels, combined with several senior partners from consultancy firm Roland Berger. These funds will be used to expand sales and marketing capabilities, as well as opening up several IT positions.

Here's to 2022 ... the year to get your employee training in check. We are already looking forward to it!  🚀
