DALLAS, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE:J) is continuing its leadership in public engagement solutions, with the launch of a new, fully customized, online and interactive Jacobs' Virtual Event Space. As part of Jacobs' global suite of digital solutions, the Virtual Event Space can be tailored to deliver deep and meaningful engagement for any client, partner or project.
Around the world, Jacobs develops and delivers public communication strategies and community involvement plans for clients' projects. Most often and until recently, these were facilitated via face-to-face public meetings. As projects look to continue important stakeholder engagement and avoid program delays, alternative solutions to face-to-face events are required. Jacobs' Virtual Event Space enables clients to provide their stakeholders with a rich, interactive, virtual experience that they can easily access straight from any computer or mobile device, without the need for virtual reality headsets.
"With the recent restrictions on the way we interact with people, Jacobs specialists have enabled a way for our clients to accelerate and redefine how they connect and consult with stakeholders and end users in the future," said Jacobs Vice President and Global Digital Market Director Dr. Raja Kadiyala. "Leveraging our global digital solutions capability, we are challenging what's possible today and reinventing a new way forward – providing more accessible, more inclusive, more resilient and lower carbon impact engagement."
From real time feedback and information gathering sessions, to exhibitions, to public consultations sharing plans for major infrastructure and community developments, this customized virtual event experience allows public participation and engagement from the safety and comfort of home.
Mirroring every aspect of face-to-face meetings, Jacobs' Virtual Event Space extends engagement with a wider audience and gives unparalleled access to people who cannot be at an event in person. It enables events to be held more safely, more sustainably, more cost-effectively and delivered more rapidly. It offers flexible configuration, an interactive visitor experience, real-time feedback, and can be integrated with clients' other digital and social media platforms.
Jacobs combines leading edge technology expertise with deep domain experience to help clients understand and deploy digital technologies that help them make better decisions and unlock new value. From Jacobs' ION solutions, Flood Cloud service and Replica™ digital twin software, to the new Virtual Events Space, Jacobs is tailoring digital-related technologies to readily support clients' challenges and leverage a different, more sustainable future.
At Jacobs, we're challenging today to reinvent tomorrow by solving the world's most critical problems for thriving cities, resilient environments, mission-critical outcomes, operational advancement, scientific discovery and cutting-edge manufacturing, turning abstract ideas into realities that transform the world for good. With $13 billion in revenue and a talent force of more than 55,000, Jacobs provides a full spectrum of professional services including consulting, technical, scientific and project delivery for the government and private sector.
