Here is what a UK Estate Agency had to say about using 360° virtual tours for their listings:
“We want to reduce the number of unnecessary viewings sellers have to go through before achieving a sale,” says Phil Williams, director of residential sales at Walton & Allen. “It’s all very well securing 27 viewings on a property, but that’s 27 times the seller has had to tidy up and set their time aside for people who, had they seen the artex on the ceiling or tiny third bedroom beforehand wouldn’t have wasted their time.”
The agency says it is making no attempt to replace actual viewings but is trying to knock down scheduling and access obstacles faced by agents and vendors on a regular basis. Source
Achieve more listings - Offering 360° virtual tours to your vendors makes your company stand out, and could win you more listings.
Higher sale prices - Many estate agents have found that by offering a 360 tour, they are able to achieve asking price or higher for their listings

HR & Safety Inductions
The possibilities are limitless
If you can’t bring your employee into the office for onboarding, bring the office to them virtually!
Development and training - The use of VR and AR in training boosts engagement and knowledge retention and enables organisations to enforce consistent, measurable standards at scale. The technology also provides a way to train employees where it is not always practical - or safe - to do so in the real world. For example, to simulate emergency situations or asset maintenance in dangerous environments. When your employees need hands-on training with equipment or processes but can’t be there in person due to office closures, space limitations or other challenges, VR can replicate the experience.
These technologies are no gimmick - Immersive experiences are a fantastic way to learn. It can transport the learner into difficult conversations, appraisals or interviews. It can create press conferences or high-pressure presentations. VR can put you on stage, with all eyes on you. And it can remove the need for role-play, reducing costs and making training experiences more convenient and quicker to access.
