The lure of reducing cost of overhead and access to more efficient tools for collaboration and communication has led more and more business to shift to virtual operation. While e-commerce and remote work are among the most popular applications of virtual space, it’s also extending into new areas of development of products and services which benefit both consumers as well as businesses.
Unlike traditional offices, which require space for collaboration and meetings, virtual office spaces offer online platforms that replicate live interactions with live video conferencing and document sharing. This is particularly helpful for teams working remotely, as a virtual workspace eliminates the need for face-toface interaction and reduces travel expenses.
Other types of virtual spaces are social spaces that allow people to socialize and interact, educational spaces such as online classrooms or e-learning platforms and gaming spaces such as massive multiplayer online games (MMOs) or mobile apps. These spaces are often enhanced with virtual reality and augmented reality to create immersive experiences.
Platform action is the process that is running in the background of a virtual environment to allow functionality. For example when you use an e-commerce platform like eBay platform action controls the way users bid and pay for items; while in tools for managing projects like Trello or Microsoft Teams, it regulates how tasks are assigned to and is managed. It is essential to create a robust platform actions in virtual space because it provides users to experience a seamless experience for users and business stakeholders.
