Two of our Reader’s Picks from our Best of Business honors this year were singled out for delivering exceptional experiences – in both virtual and in-person environments.
Congratulations to The Edge VR and Olive Branch Digital, winners in the Best Team-Building Experience and Best Web Development categories.
When a team travels somewhere new together, it is a bonding experience — even if that place is a virtual one. At The Edge VR, the fully interactive and immersive, multiplayer, VR gaming experience is known as The Edge of Space. Using the company’s proprietary magnetic-tracking technology, a lightweight motion-capture suit is worn, with hands, legs, feet, and fingers all functioning within the VR environment. Founder Adam Anfiteatro says the social aspect of interacting in that world feels surreal. “The fact that you see yourself and others as avatars inside the virtual world — you also interact with physical items in the play space — adds to a level of immersion that you can’t get in any other experience.”
Fenton Joseph considers his company the best builder of WordPress websites in the area, and many customers obviously agree. Since 2014, the company has been lending its expertise in web design and development, managed hosting, and website maintenance to both nonprofits and businesses in the region. Joseph’s background across multiple industries has given him an edge when it comes to branding and communications. “There really isn’t a client we are not able to service; we have a methodology for understanding the essence of a brand and articulating that essence through design,” he says.
