The VR2020™ Advantage

The unique advantage of the VR2020™ is that it can be updated/amended as and when the client requires at three different levels, either by the licensee, the client or by us. Our licensees and clients have overall control of their tour with no programming skills required or added expenses to make fast and frequent changes. So, for example, when adding a new facility, destination or if there is some refurbishment there is no need to build a new tour, just upload another hotspot or replace the old image with the new image.

The uniqueness and the benefit of the VR2020™ is that it works on all operating systems and is viewed exceptionally quickly over the Internet. It can also be sent out on CD’s as a virtual tour or made available for presentation or offline viewing on PC’s, Mac’s, Kiosks etc.

Additionally the interactive harmonisation of the map and hotspots with the associated text, email and URL links, audio files, video banners and print files is unique to the VR2020™ and is both © Copyright protected and Patent Pending.
