ProBility Media Corp. and GlobalSim Inc. Join Forces to Introduce VR Training to Crane Industry
ProBility Media Corp. (OTCQB: PBYA), an education technology company building the first full service training and career advancement brand for the skilled trades, has teamed up with GlobalSim Inc., a leading provider of simulators and training systems for a variety of industries including ports, construction and military throughout the world, to launch the VR Construction Crane Simulator. GlobalSim has developed a significant software library of virtual heavy equipment models and has installed over 200 simulation systems on 5 continents. GlobalSim has now taken that expertise to deliver high quality training to the mobile crane market through virtual reality.
ProBility and GlobalSim have executed an exclusive agreement in which GlobalSim will provide the portable VR Construction Crane hardware and the eLearning software and ProBility will sell the product through its extensive sales channels in the United States and Canada. The GlobalSim VR simulator comes equipped with a headset that offers an unlimited field-of-view in a mixed reality setting, allowing for a completely immersive experience. The VR platform uses real equipment controls, joysticks and buttons so operators can become familiar with the actual equipment they will be using in the workplace. The simulator can be configured in a variety of different environments for any number of industries. GlobalSim’s cutting edge VR simulation platform offers a training experience with superb realism at an affordable price when compared to traditional simulator systems.
“We are incredibly excited to be partnered with ProBility on the launch of one of the first portable virtual reality training methods for the crane industry,” stated Jonathan McCurdy, Chief Executive Officer of GlobalSim. “What separates the GlobalSim VR platform from others on the market is the seamless integration of real-life controls and technology that allows operators to see their hands in the virtual environment. The result is a VR training product that provides an unparalleled amount of realism and still incorporates the GlobalSim training management system and simulation tools that are among the very best in the industry. Just as a commercial pilot learns to operate a complex aircraft in a simulator before ever flying an airplane, VR Construction Crane simulation technology can train a student to operate a crane, safely, efficiently and proficiently before ever turning on the engine. This dramatically increases the operators market value and offers not only an increased safety profile but a tremendous cost savings as well.”
“Providing high quality training to the $35 billion crane industry is paramount in our strategy of building our training and career advancement brand across multiple skilled trades,” stated Noah Davis, President and Chief Operating Officer of ProBility. “We have recognized early that the crane industry is positioned for global growth and ProBility is positioned to deliver high quality training and eLearning to the hundreds of thousands of operators and potential operators in the industry. Providing virtual reality to the crane industry is just the first step in bringing a similar experience to many of the skilled trades. We look forward to building a long term relationship with GlobalSim and are excited to work together on additional products for different industries.”
Both ProBility and GlobalSim will be attending Con Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center from March 7th through 10th.
