Deliverect, a third-party food delivery and online ordering services integrator, has shared details of its alternative online Christmas extravaganza.
Deliverect will be gifting each member with the Oculus - Quest 2 VR headsets that will enable Deliverect’s employees to join a specially designed virtual reality (VR) Christmas party taking place on December 18.
The VR Christmas party will reunite employees based around the world in lieu of any physical face-to-face celebrations as COVID-19 restrictions remain in force in many countries.
Oculus VR Headsets allow the user to experience VR through 3D positional audio, advanced processing power and 1832x1920 resolution.
To facilitate the VR party, Deliverect is using AltspaceVR, the premier VR events space for live big shows, parties, seminars, and corporate gatherings. The Innovative tech scale-up chose AltspaceVR as it allows a greater number of people to join at once, whereas other VR software applications only grant 30-40 individuals’ access.
The Christmas party initiative has been spearheaded by one of Deliverect’s co-founders, Jan Hollez, in recognition of the value that Christmas parties and employee interaction bring to company culture.
Over the past 12 months Deliverect has seen tremendous growth, it now boasts over 14 million processed orders from around the globe. Deliverect has dramatically increased its staff numbers this year. However, due to the pandemic, many of its new employees have not had the chance to meet each other face-to-face. Using the VR technology Deliverect plans on bringing together all of its 114 employees in one virtual room.
The company currently supports 100+ global integrations with major POS, delivery partners, and offices in the UK, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Mexico, North America, and Dubai.
