Oculus’ parent company Facebook has announced that its new Oculus for Business program is now available for all companies to purchase. The new initiative program, which was first announced at F8 2019, has been in closed beta ever since and was only open to select partners. Now, any business can finally purchase the $999 enterprise-edition of Quest.
While the consumer version of Quest is designed primarily for VR gaming and entertainment, Facebook’s ‘Oculus for Business’ program offers companies an enterprise platform solution utilizing the Quest standalone headset for all their professional needs. For $999, a business can purchase an Oculus Quest (128GB) that includes enterprise-grade software, licenses, 24/7 support, and warranties. After the first 12 months, it will cost businesses an ongoing annual fee of $180 per headset to maintain full access to their software subscription.
The business edition of Quest features a newly customized interface that is specifically geared toward professionals and does not include access to the Oculus Store for downloading games and other consumer-oriented content. Built on Facebook’s enterprise collaboration platform, Workplace, businesses will be able to take advantage of new features that cater to immersive VR workflows such as configuring, deploying, and managing a fleet of Quest headsets, and remotely updating and administering company-approved apps across multiple devices and locations.
“Since using Oculus Quest, we’ve seen a surge in interest from clients looking to use VR to help connect their teams working remotely,” says Angel Say, CEO & Co-Founder of InsiteVR in a statement. “Quest now accounts for over 50% of our usage and is the only device we consistently see teams using.”
