Simulations & Guides

T R A I N  .  E V A L U A T E  .  A S S I S T


Traditional courseware for Operations, Maintenance & Safety is mostly passive, not allowing for individual ‘practice’. Employees do not have the opportunity to explore procedures, as they do in live training sessions – which are expensive, hard to schedule and not scalable.

Heartwood’s Virtual Interactive Simulations & Guides help operations, maintenance, and field service teams perform complex procedures faster, safer and with less errors. Our visual, 3D interactive and portable applications allow them to practice procedures on equipment virtually via web, PC, mobile, AR and VR platforms.

Lower Operational Costs

Reduce the travel costs, facility expense, and instructor fees associated with live training and support. Save on Subject Matter Expert (SME) travel and equipment shipment costs to and from each location. Train distributed workforces to perform complex tasks with less risk to staff or equipment – anytime, anywhere.

Our customers reduce workforce training time by up to 60% and see an ROI of up to 7x.

Accelerate Skill Level

Proficiency is attained through ordinary practice, done consistently. Videos, images and Powerpoints just can’t do that. 3D interactivity turns passive observers into active, hands-on participants! Instructional information is displayed as 3D interactive content that mirrors the real world in both ‘form’ and ‘function’. Simply put, this means it looks like the real thing, and acts like it.

Beyond step-by-step instruction, we develop true-to-life immersive scenarios as they would occur in the real world. Multiple modes of instruction – Explore, Practice, and Troubleshoot/Evaluate.

Portable. Scalable. Modular.

Training is not just a classroom to go to. Train employees at scale, with consistency. Unchain your workforce from the limitation of travel, aligning schedules and training in batches. Effective job training and field support allows technicians to access visual instruction and learn at their own pace anytime, anywhere via:
1. Laptop/PCs.
2. Mobile & Tablet devices.
3. Web browsers.
3. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality based training.


Our 3D Interactive applications are specifically tailored for Operations, Maintenance (O&M) & Safety applications across a wide variety of industries.
