EY, one of the “big four” accounting companies, is taking part of its software suite into the metaverse. Customers can participate in virtual reality environments through immersive experiences offered by EY wavespace. This service enables them to join meetings with EY employees from various locations worldwide.
EY Steps Into the Creative Metaverse
On October 26, EY, one of the top four accounting companies with over 300,000 employees spread over 150 countries, said that it would add metaverse capability to EY wavespace, a team communication tool.
With the help of this application, which now enables users to connect with others on an immersive level, the company hopes to increase employee engagement and the quality of communication among teams and employees. Customers of EY Wavespace will be able to take advantage of these connections thanks to new capabilities that allow users to engage in a variety of ways, including in-person, virtually, hybridly, and now in the metaverse.
To EY, adding such functionalities to its products is part of satisfying the interest many of its customers from all sectors and industries have in the metaverse. Edwina Fitzmaurice, EY global chief customer success officer, stated:
At this stage, the metaverse is about creativity and opportunity, not certainty, and I am excited for EY teams to continue shaping a road map for how clients can anticipate and transform for this next frontier of human experience.
Other Metaverse Developments
The business has already established a metaverse lab where clients can get advice on things like 3D design, web animation, game development, art direction, and user experience design. The corporation is breaking out from its current business model as part of its expansion strategy.
Additionally, EY leverages this information to provide its clients services in digital twin robotics, the internet of things, and artificial intelligence (AI). However, EY is not the only business looking to integrate metaverse functionality into its offerings.
On October 25, Microsoft disclosed that it was modifying a portion of its software stack to support applications built using the metaverse. In particular, it is enabling its cloud business to deliver supplemental data to customers to enhance their performance in industrial applications, including the creation of items prior to mass production.
