MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) July 17, 2018
Axonom, a global provider of virtual and visual product configurator software, today announces customer Zebra Athletics, the world’s leading outfitter of training facilities, unveiled a virtual reality (VR) exhibit for attendees to explore three premier mixed martial arts training centers used by UFC fighters at the Martial Arts SuperShow in Las Vegas.
Zebra Athletics used virtual reality to showcase its products by virtually transporting attendees to three world-class training centers used by Daniel Cormier (American Kickboxing Academy), Michelle Waterson (JacksonWink), and Cortney Casey and Benson Henderson (The MMA Lab).
Attendees wore the HTC Vive Pro to explore each facility, observe the layout design, see what equipment is used, and grasp how the equipment is effectively placed for optimal training performance. "It was amazing how realistic and detailed the rooms looked," said UFC champion, Daniel Cormier. "Zebra really took gym designs to a new level."
"Virtual Reality is an effective way to engage, educate, and inspire athletes and gym owners on Zebra products," said Kyle Fisher, President at Zebra Athletics. "VR gives our prospective customers an immersive, first-person point of view how Zebra mats, padding, cages, bags, and racks look inside various rooms with unique sizes and dimensions. It’s a great tool for gym owners to validate the design of their ideal facility."
The training centers were designed with Axonom’s visual configure, price, quote (CPQ) solution suite. Powertrak 3D Product Configurator features an interactive floor space planning tool (FSP) to create, customize, and furnish each room in the facility. Its robust toolset includes measurement tools for product spacing, floor and wall pattern automation, and drag-and-drop placement of products, interior walls, windows, and doors.
In addition to sales quoting and ordering features, Powertrak 3D Product Configurator is VR-ready on smartphone-based headsets and tethered devices. Powertrak Virtual Reality Product Configurator provides consumers and key decision-makers an immersive experience to visualize product configurations and room layout designs – all prior to ordering or construction.
"Powertrak 3D Product Configurator and Virtual Reality combine to deliver the most compelling sales tool for exhibitors at trade shows," said Mike Belongie, COO at Axonom. "Zebra Athletics is the posterchild on how to effectively present a variety of products for specific types of environments, all from a 10’x20’ exhibit space."
