Colorado Credit Union Embraces VR for Employee Training with Aequilibrium and Motive.io

Innovative partnership leverages virtual reality to transform professional development in the financial sector, promising enhanced engagement, reduced costs, and advanced analytics.

VANCOUVER, B.C., Dec. 4. - Aequilibrium, a digital consulting and implementation services company, and Motive.io, an industry-leading virtual reality (VR) training platform, partnered with one of the largest credit unions in the state of Colorado, and one of the 25 largest credit unions in the United States, to implement VR employee training. The VR training project will help the credit union address several key objectives: to elevate employee engagement, reduce travel time and costs associated with traditional training, and enhance learning through immersive analytics, a feature unique to VR.

Aequilibrium and Motive.io are at the forefront of a revolution that promises to redefine professional development in financial services.

By incorporating cutting-edge VR training, we are not just modernizing learning modalities—we are pioneering a transformation in how credit union teams are equipped with the skills they need to thrive in customer interactions. This is more than an advancement in technology, it's a commitment to crafting remarkable experiences through skilled, engaged, and knowledgeable employees.”

As the project unfolds, Aequilibrium and Motive.io anticipate expanding their reach, engaging with more credit unions, banks, and financial associations across Canada and the U.S., setting a new standard for training in financial services.
