VRFocus Diversity Initiative July 2018

VRFocus Diversity Initiative  July 2018 Event

VRFocus Diversity Initiative (VRDI) has the aim to make emerging XR technologies such as AR and VR more inclusive. This is done by offering participants from under-represented groups the opportunity to get hands on with high-end VR headsets, 360 cameras and VR ready laptops to create either a 360 film or VR experience.

The 2018 Events are held every 2 months and I was accepted to attend Event held Tuesday, 31st July 2018. This was hosted by Plexal: Technology Innovation Centre London. It was organised and facilitated by Nina Salomons, VRDI Lead & Media Content Producer.

Overview:
The workshop unleashed my creativity, because Course content and instruction was very well tailored. Most importantly Nina Salomons, the VRDI Lead & Facilitator, ensured good attendee interaction and focus on outcomes. The VR (immersion) demos on the day influenced me as well as my discussion with instructors and attendees to understand the opportunities in emerging XR technologies.  Having taken part in the this Initiative, I am now prepared to take on role of project manager/producer in the Media & Entertainment sector.

We make eCommerce business both practical and profitable

We make eCommerce business both practical and profitable

Setting up and management of an eCommerce platform can be a full time occupation which hinders you from running your core business. Also the attempt to actually outsource and manage this platform can equally be costly.

If you are the sole business owner, without a team, you will incur man-hours, which cannot be billed to the customer and, can also impact the quality time spent running your business. It would be essential to understand the basis on which you work out a budget. What outcomes do you want?

We can provide a the best solution, which would be to take a project-centric approach which should start with a business case, outlined here. We will help you surmount the hurdles and obstacles to business growth.

Customer Focus
If you are running a going concern, you will need to put in place a robust “Customer Development” process to avoid changing direction and endless reiterations to arrive at your end goal. This can result in missing time deadlines, cost overruns and an inferior product.

Project Focus
A lot of emphasis is put on finding the “right” web developer and what is often missed is the step process that takes the user requirements to identify the right eCommerce platform.

We can help on producing the initial draft and iterations for your eCommerce site. This will help establish a realistic deadline and disclose your budget upfront. It’s very important to have a good job specification and follow the recruitment process and communicate diligently to the platform development team.

Main Benefit
Our rigorous approach will ensure you have a solid proposal should you want to engage with a Digital creative agency. Best applicable where the need for branding and strategy with product design, is imperative. Preferable where you are at high-end of the market or with specific niche.

Delivery
As a small business owner, an eCommerce platform can be a cost-effective and efficient channel to deliver your products. Let us help you meet your business objectives!!
