Sydney tech start-up Devika has been accepted as an official partner and approved software vendor by HP Australia for the creation of end-to-end virtual reality solutions.

Devika has two products: Kolb makes experiential learning software accessible to students, while Evenness is used by NDIS providers to provide access to virtual sensory rooms which can help individuals with disabilities manage anxiety, learning difficulties or developmental disabilities.

Devika founder and chief executive Ken Kencevski said in a statement that having HP as an official partner would raise his company's profile.

"We’re excited to see what Devika can achieve now as an approved ISV helping organisations implement end-to-end VR solutions,” he said.

“What’s really important is that the collaboration allows us to tap into the large amount of research and development happening in the VR space with HP Australia and leverage that.

"Devika now gets a seat at the table when looking at industry feedback for the development of the HP VR hardware. We will be able to see where the hardware technology is heading and this will help us to future proof our current projects and collaborations.

“Not only this, the program allows software and hardware providers to create alignment when looking at the future roadmap of VR. By taking a holistic approach, we will be able to achieve a more enduring outcome for the technology."

HP Australia's national commercial channel sales manager Adrian Thake said: “We’re excited to partner with Devika and bring a full service solution to our partners and customers.

"At HP we believe in making life better through our technology, services and solutions and we created the VR ISV program to foster collaboration between HP partners, customers and ISV’s. This program will give partners a competitive advantage in the market and to encourage growth in the rapidly evolving VR industry.

“Our vision is to become the leading one-stop shop for commercial customers from VR development to deployment. Working with innovative companies like Devika allows us to bring this vision to life in the Australian channel."

Devika works with a number of Australian companies to utilise the benefits of VR, AR, AI and mobile-first apps to transform their business strategies and advance their capabilities. Among its better known clients are Westpac, Intel, Visikol, East Room and Equalution.
