What was the scope of their involvement?
Dan (CEO & Founder, Bit Space Development) and his team took our existing 15-module training course and converted each into a VR setting. They would physically walk through different construction sites to capture the specific environments so that they could recreate the scene in VR.
They also created video tools for flagger training (the people on construction sites who use flags to direct drivers). They’ve developed a few videos to enhance the learning experience—it’s very different from just listening to someone with a PowerPoint, in a classroom.
As for the website, their team spearheaded a complete redesign. We had an initial discussion about the design and features we wanted. We were quite behind the times, so they’ve helped us step into the current state of the art.
They’ve consequently integrated several plug-ins, so we now have functions like online course registration, online payments, and even e-commerce. At the moment, they’re working on a learning management system that enables our clients to easily access online learning aids.
What is the team composition?
I worked directly with Dan. There were several others involved in our meetings and the production processes, but he was my main point of contact.
How did you come to work with Bit Space Development?
He was referred to me by the Manitoba Construction Sector Council, which is a government-funded organization dedicated to promoting and training the emerging workforce.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent somewhere between $40,000–$75,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began working together in May 2016, and the engagement is still ongoing. They’re currently continuing to work on our website.
