Founded by two passionate people that live and breathe all things Augmented, Virtual, Wear-able, Connect-able and above all, Scalable.  

At Virtual Method, we bring a broad and strategic approach to advanced technologies, seeking-out and deeply-aligning with the world’s best SAAS & Hardware, giving our customers the opportunity to build rock solid business cases and achieve and fast and impressive ROI.  

AR and VR are undeniably moving towards the mainstream, according to the world’s leading disruption-barometers, and many businesses are under-prepared for the impacts, using AR/VR as a tactic and not a platform-mandatory.

We consult with businesses to help them understand when, where and how these advanced technologies can fit into either the B2C or B2B customer experience and/or operational-mix, across many verticals.
