An Award Winning System
In 2012, the IWRC began working with The Ames Laboratory and Praxik, LLC to redesign the VirtualPaint software. The objective was to improve software capabilities so that VirtualPaint could be a more effective and comprehensive training system. Based on six years of customer feedback, three years of applied research and more than a year of software development, the newest version of the software, VP8, was released in 2013. As a result of the significant improvements to the software, VirtualPaint won the Excellence in Technology Transfer award from the Federal Laboratory Consortium Mid-Continent Region.
In 2013, the growing exposure of VirtualPaint in Europe resulted in new partnerships with Canescens BV and Praxik, LLC to develop localization software capabilities and explore distribution opportunities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. At the first exhibition in Paris, VirtualPaint was honored by receiving the EQUIP AUTO International Grands Prix for Automotive Innovation.
With the help of clients, industry partners and our development teams, the IWRC plans to continue improving capabilities of our VirtualPaint system to meet the training needs of the future.
