Oculus are expanding the reach and dropping the price for business customers.
It has been amply demonstrated that virtual reality (VR) can have a positive impact on businesses, offering facilities such as immersive training as well as the chance for long-distance collaboration. Oculus for Business was set up to provide this facility as part of a service to businesses and organisations. Oculus have now announced that companies in new regions will be able to take advantage of the Oculus for Business service.
Oculus are expanding the availability of Oculus for Business to Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Taiwan, and are also reducing the price of the Oculus for Business Rift bundle.
The price of the Oculus for Business Rift bundle is being knocked down to $799 (USD) from its former price of $900, so businesses in many countries will be able to take advantage of the benefits provided by VR at a lower price.
The Oculus Rift for Business bundle contains an Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch controllers, three sensors for room-scale tracking and three hygienic face masks for sharing the headset.
For a more portable option, the Oculus Go bundle is also available through Oculus Go for Business, with pre-orders going live in May. The Oculus Go for Business is priced at $299 and comes with an Oculus Go 64GB headset, a worldwide multi-prong charger, and two facial hygienic masks.
The Oculus Go for Business pre-order bundles are expected to begin shipping in later Summer 2018.
Oculus for Business is now available in the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the UK, and the USA.
