Collaboration results Nov. 2017 Collaboration results

SECOM created a "VR training program" with IT startup Kadinche Corporation, which develops space expression technology such as VR/AR.
It is the first training program using VR technology in the security guard industry, and SECOM has adapted it for employee training since 2017. Thanks to VR technology, more employees can virtually experience limited exercise because of its cost or danger. Furthermore, we developed an updated program in November 2019, implementing gamification to reinforce the interactiveness.
