Virtual Reality Training to Improve Employee Efficiency
By Utilities Tech Outlook | Tuesday, March 05, 2019
The engineering and construction industry is at the juncture of a new era due to the advent of innovative and far-sighted technological tools and applications from start-ups. According to a report by McKinsey Global Institute, the construction industry spends almost $10 trillion every year on construction-related goods, but a major problem related to productivity still prevails which demands an extra investment of nearly $1.6 trillion. In this changing scenario, construction companies need to adopt cutting-edge technologies to facilitate the process of automation in order to enjoy improved productivity.
Pike Corporation provides customized plans for engineering and construction companies to transform workflow and enhance productivity leveraging advanced technology. The company has recently announced the inclusion of Paul Ramsay in its leadership team as a chief information officer.
Previously, Ramsay, an experienced player of the industry, worked as a CIO in Lowe’s Home Improvement where he played an essential role in leading IT operations and developing the distribution network, stores, and e-commerce platforms leveraging technology to ensure the smooth running of the future business. SGA Talent marked him as the Top 40 Best and Brightest Technology Leaders in 2017. In his new role, Ramsay is expected to restructure the information technology operations with his in-depth knowledge and experience. Besides serving his everyday role, Ramsay will help to implement Oracle Cloud technology and virtual reality training.
Pike Corporation, headquartered in North Carolina, is aimed at providing advanced turnkey solutions to its customer through the incorporation of technology to achieve higher operational excellence. The company is counted as one of the largest providers of energy infrastructure and has exhibited exponential growth in the development and installation of battery storage systems.
Pike thrives relentlessly to become a leader in the market. The RPA or BOT initiatives and the investment in virtual reality training for employees to enhance their efficiency have offered the company a massive leap from its competitors, and Pike’s several projects like emergency storm response, capital infrastructure, natural gas distribution installation, and program management have led the company to heights.
Often, in a B2B environment, new technologies cannot achieve the desired success because of major problems related to implementation processes, but Pike searches for technologically advanced procedures to solve such challenges.
