Getting More Impact  

Creative Settings
Contextually accurate or just plain beautiful settings within which to work can bring deeper, active learning, “in-situation experiences,” cozy  or highly functional settings that drive increased sharing, creativity, delivery, team building…   

 • Infinite Wall/Space
Virtual real estate is infinitely expandable.  We can help you create what you need to display your project, team work, ideas, phases…Your teams can pin up their napkin sketch next to their draft design, next to their team brainstorm, next to their detailed designs, ….Agile teams can have their swim lanes, innovation efforts can have their break outs, training efforts can create walk the wall training that can bump stadium seating and breakout rooms.  And all this can be in a contextually accurate setting such as a pharmacy or a computer room or a tree house perhaps…   

 • Micro Gaming
Often nothing is more effective than applied game tactics.   The most mundane of topics can become more remember-able and fun with the right amount of game dynamic applied.  Our Python API and our out of the box features and services make the creation of the right game dynamic really deliver.
 

 • Content Creation & Movie Making
Content can be extremely expensive to create when your
need to impress or train.   3D ICC and Terf® give you a cost effective creative way to create and share content and videos.  It will save you a ton of $ and your users will like it more.
