Boston Scientific, a leading medical device company with a focus on innovative solutions in healthcare needed to provide high-value training for a complex chemical process without disrupting the company’s production lines. Traditional training methods were time-consuming, costly, and could only be done in a lab setting, which presented several logistical challenges as well as the high cost and potential risks involved in conducting hands-on training in a lab environment.
Mersus Technologies, a company specialising in virtual reality solutions, in collaboration with Boston Scientific Cork, designed a digital replica of its lab on Avatar Academy Learning Experience Platform, which enables trainees to experience the chemical process in a realistic, safe environment without the need to be physically present in the lab. The resulting training program is broken down into easily digestible modules, which trainees can run through in sequence or jump to any module as desired and can move between them, following voice and written instructions
Boston Scientific are now able to provide high-value training for their complex chemical process quickly and efficiently, without disrupting their production lines or requiring trainees to be physically present in the lab. This provides a hands-on learning experience that helps users better understand the process and gain confidence in their abilities.
Using the TIBA Avatar Academy, in the space of a day you can run six or seven times the same training process that previously would take four or five weeks! Mersus Technologies’ virtual reality solution has revolutionised the way we train our staff, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
