"Working with Silverback made for a smooth transition into virtual training. They went above and beyond to learn the ins and outs of our operations. They focused on the greatest detail and worked with a broad set of expectations to ensure the project remained on time and on budget. Their expertise in the field of virtual reality is above all we have surveyed in the market and we are beyond happy to continue to work with them."
"Silverback is amazing to work with. The team is dynamic, energetic and cutting edge. They have the uncanny ability to take an idea and turn it into a concept that surpasses any of my expectations. Willie and Colleen understand urgency and customer service and go out of their way to ensure that our ever changing needs are met and the use of technology is easy, clear and free of defects. The VR training has allowed us to virtually test competencies for our crew which is much more cost eective than use of simulator and/or one-on-one competency assessments onboard our assets."
"We are always seeking more effective ways to illustrate design concepts to clients and owners. Silverback's team of technical artists exhibited an innovative, creative and nimble approach to tailoring VR to architectural realities."
Willie has lead award-winning, international teams in the interactive training and entertainment industries for fourteen years.
