Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, presents an industry first with its new app, to assist with data centre planning.

The Vertiv XR app allows data centre operators, IT managers and channel partners to visualise Vertiv products in the location they would occupy in any given facility, using augmented reality.

The augmented reality representation helps today’s data centre decision-makers by providing a convenient tool to plan their space and understand how the infrastructure will support their computing needs.

The Vertiv XR app guides users through product selection and placement, using augmented reality to deliver an immersive, realistic depiction of the product in the location of their choosing – whether that’s a data centre, office, server closet or other space.

It allows users to see and explore various Vertiv solutions when and where they choose, and to stay engaged beyond purchase and installation by viewing complementary solutions and by streamlining social sharing of their experiences with Vertiv.

The company’s sweeping digitisation effort is focused on developing and updating digital assets that better serve customers and partners and engage with them on their terms.

The ultimate objective is to enhance the buyer experience that users have with Vertiv, to make it easier for them to find what they need when they visit or use the Vertiv XR app, and to help Vertiv and its partners have more meaningful, productive engagements with customers and partners.

The app is available at the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
