The International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) and Industrial Training International (ITI) have finalized a purchase agreement that allows all IUOE member training centers and locals in the Union to access ITI’s Virtual Reality (VR) Crane Simulator library of content under one subscription agreement. Under the terms of the deal, IUOE’s per-user subscription price is progressively reduced as each new member organization joins the program.
The current generation of screen-based simulators have two main drawbacks. (1) High cost due to hardware requirements, and (2) Poor user experience, mostly attributed to a lack of realism when compared to operating a real crane.
ITI VR has:
- Low up-front capital costs
- Unmatched user experience/realism
- Subscription pricing based on actual usage
