Mintra Inks Strategic Partnership with ARuVR

Kevin Short, CEO, Mintra®London (UK) / Bergen (NO), June 2023 - ARuVR®, a patented multi-award winning end-to-end extended reality (XR) training platform for enterprises, recently announced that it has signed a strategic partnership with Mintra®, a leading provider of digital learning solutions to over 4,000 global enterprises, primarily to the maritime, energy, and safety-critical industries.

By providing ARuVR's augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) platform and solutions, Mintra customers will benefit from access to immersive, risk-free training, regardless of where they happen to be in the world. ARuVR's product seamlessly integrates with TrainingPortal, Mintra's industry-leading learning and competence management system.

The combined ARuVR and Mintra proposition blends both theory and practice, giving learners knowledge through eLearning and then practical application within an immersive experience. This powerful combination increases learning absorption, engagement, and satisfaction, as well as improves knowledge retention. The result is a learner better equipped for the realities of working safely in hazardous environments. In addition to the improvements in workforce knowledge and awareness, businesses also benefit from efficiencies in reduced training time, travel costs, and carbon footprint.

ARuVR breaks down many of the previous barriers to the widespread adoption and deployment of AR and VR training by allowing code-free content generation, live real-time and interactive streaming, and is fully cross compatible across mobile, tablet, desktop, and XR devices. ARuVR's patented platform allows trainers to connect with multiple trainees anywhere in the world simultaneously.

Blended and virtual learning are considered critical to the digital transformation goals of the maritime and energy industries to not only attract and retain talent, increase user satisfaction, and improve engagement rates, but also to safely and efficiently upskill and re-skill the existing workforce.

Kevin Short, CEO, Mintra®, said, "The partnership with ARuVR gives Mintra a strategic advantage to support our growing global customer base with a leading technology solution that will play an integral part in our blended-learning solution going forward. The team at ARuVR has developed a platform that fits perfectly with Mintra's strategic vision."

Frank Furnari, CEO & Founder, ARuVR®, said, "Safety-critical and highly regulated industries are embracing training solutions to reduce training risk, drive efficiency, and raise standards. Mintra has recognised that our AR and VR platform is the obvious next evolution of training, and we look forward to developing this strategic partnership further."

Siren Berge, CTO, Mintra®, said, "At a time when the maritime and energy industries are going through a huge change, it's important that multi-format compliant training solutions keep pace. The partnership with ARuVR enables Mintra to support our customers with a solution that enriches the training experience, while at the same time reduces risk and increases efficiency."
