November 26, 2019 / Ryan Golden

Sports and outdoor lifestyle apparel retailer evo has launched an extended reality (XR) training solution for employees at its Seattle warehouse facility, according to a Nov. 20 announcement. The training will use technologies including 360-degree virtual reality video and augmented reality to familiarize staff with the layout of the facility and train them on critical processes. The retailer plans to use the training to prepare for the Black Friday shopping season, ahead of which the Seattle facility's headcount will triple from its normal headcount of 50 full-time staff members, per the statement.
