Cranial Tap, Inc. Launches Business Showcase for Virtual Worlds
Round Hill, VA September 30, 2008 -- Cranial Tap, Inc. today launched a business solutions showcase geared specifically towards 3D online virtual worlds. Located on Cortex Island in Second Life®, businesses and organizations can now connect remote teams, conduct research, offer training, recruit candidates and conduct meetings. These solutions are aimed at increasing productivity while reducing operating expenses.
The four showcase areas provide working technologies that demonstrate the benefits of Teleworking, Virtual Meetings, Training and Presentations. Visitors are encouraged to participate in the featured solutions. Upon arrival, visitors are greeted by Tia, a computer driven character (bot) that provides information related to Cranial Tap and their services. She serves as an example of an automated character that can be used in place of human hosts.
The Media Display tool leverages existing content which can be programmed from the web. It supports streaming video, images, web pages, office and text files. The Virtual Book Publishing platform mimics real books but can read to groups, contain purchasing links and serve as a promotional tool. The DataViz tool supports visual exploration of datasets in compelling new ways.
Further solutions include The Virtual Environment Portal, which tracks and analyzes visitors, supports staff management, records meetings and is web controllable. This web based application serves data stored in external databases captured from virtual environments. This new showcase is presented in a unique setting that blends a rich forest environment with a future business look. Cortex Island also serves as a virtual corporate presence facility.
