With traditional project management approaches stressed by COVID-19, changing workforce dynamics and the increasing use of remote meetings, Avatour and Black & Veatch announce a strategic partnership that leverages digital collaboration to break down traditional meeting barriers, reduce risk and improve project execution.

With the COVID-19 pandemic now entering its third year, Avatour, a leading provider of immersive remote collaboration services, and Black & Veatch, a global leader in engineering, construction and procurement, saw an opportunity to leverage technology to address challenges in physically locating professionals on-site for inspections, tours, trainings and other critical services.

Black & Veatch needed a digital solution, so the company turned to Avatour’s remote collaboration platform

With its extensive global workforce and thousands of large-scale projects in development, Black & Veatch needed a digital solution, so the company turned to Avatour’s remote collaboration platform, which leverages a 360° live video feed, multi-user collaboration and record capabilities allowing on-site professionals and remote collaborators to come together – remotely – in a physical space. In addition, the services can be paired with virtual reality to provide an even more immersive experience for remote participants.

“Avatour increases the engagement between on-site and remote professionals, providing simple, seamless and immersive communication capabilities,” said Brian Melton, Innovation Lead, Operations with Black & Veatch. “The Avatour service enhances flexibility for remote participants by allowing each remote viewer to control their own perspective, whereas traditional collaboration technology has a fixed point-of-view controlled only by the on-site professional. Avatour provides our teams with new opportunities to connect; transporting them to a real place, in real time.”
