Getting Past the Hype
ThinkBalm surveyed 66 businesses and held 15 in-depth interviews in order to grasp a larger picture of current immersive internet business solutions. The results show that businesses are finally getting past the hype and into the practical. Immersive Internet technology once seemed a business risk taken on only by the earliest of early adopters, but now the solid numbers are coming in, and they're impressive.
Ninety-five percent of survey respondents "reported some level of success with their 2008 / 1Q 2009 immersive technology deployments," and 30% of those surveyed recouped initial investment within nine months. The main reasons for client satisfaction with Immersive Internet technology: low cost, innovation, and and real world "presence" only 3-D, virtual world meeting places can provide.
From Cranial Tap's perspective, ThinkBalm's report explains our growing client base. And we're staying ahead of the hype with cutting edge technology, round-the-clock service, and a highly anti-Dilbertian business philosophy of over-delivering on product.
