Work in the Metaverse with ZIB Messenger’s New Virtual 3D Offices Rip Bull Network’s Latest Product Supports a Growing Remote Work Trend
Remote teams and hybrid office work environments appear to be here to stay. As executives embrace the new dynamic, leading virtual teams can leave both sides wanting more. Members of the Forbes Coaches Council recommend leading with empathy, staying present, improving the level of connection with your team, and other techniques that are much easier in person than over Zoom, Slack and other remote office management tools.
Embracing the Metaverse, a term combining virtual reality with life, seems to be the growing solution.
Launching November 25, 2021, ZIB Messenger gives businesses a new tool in their remote work arsenal. Developed by Rip Bull Networks, ZIB Messenger combines the messaging and file sharing of programs like Slack with the human collaboration often missing in remote work. Using only a browser, users can create custom offices and avatars to develop and work in a “space” together much like the traditional offices of old.
“ZIB Messenger is going to be the new place for you to go to work,” said co-founder Brandon Gutierrez. “Facebook’s Oculus has a program called Horizon in beta which is essentially a bunch of avatars walking around that’s your co-workers so you’re working on your computer watching your co-workers in an office. That’s the future of remote work. We saw it coming in 2018 and now ZIB Messenger gives you those features, without expensive VR goggles or special software. It works straight in your browser, and it’s available now.”
With accounts and workspaces starting with free and premium larger storage and workforce options, ZIB Messenger is a low cost taste of the growing Metaverse trend that might just be worth your time to try out.
“It can be more than just an office space. Image hosting live seminars with break out rooms you can actually move between while brainstorming, or trade shows with a truly virtual 3D floor and booths to explore with avatars reps live and happy to interact with guests,” marveled Gutierrez. “We’re seeing the start of a Metaverse explosion.”
