How have XR solutions accelerated and refined training processes, and how easily has your company been able to deliver to educational institutions?
Dirck Schou: Our Manifest work instruction platform is the epitome of intuitive. We’re democratizing expertise by essentially making everyone an expert through the delivery of knowledge in ways that empower frontline workers to do their jobs.
