Ruth Lee Ltd working in partnership with leading virtual reality developer

Ruth Lee Ltd has announced a new partnership with VSTEP, the world leading simulation software provider. With this collaboration, Ruth Lee will operate as the official representative of the Response Simulator product in the UK and Ireland markets. Both companies will join forces to help users fill the gap between theoretical and practical real-life training.

With a growing demand from customers for cost-effective and immersive training solutions, Ruth Lee is keen to provide innovative solutions. Response Simulator was chosen as it has developed a well-established position as one of the most advanced incident command simulation solutions in the market.

The RS-Ruth Lee partnership brings together the possibility of VR, AR, and MR (mixed reality) to help enhance training outcomes for safety professionals. The users of Ruth Lee’s training products will be able to build a virtual training scenario in Response Simulator and familiarise themselves with specific emergency situations in a controlled and risk-free environment. They can further this training by applying their knowledge in a real-life training using Ruth Lee training manikins.

Paul McDonnell, Managing Director at Ruth Lee, said, “VSTEP and Ruth Lee Limited share a lot of common values, such as transparency and integrity. They are very focused on supporting their customers and invest a great deal of resources into product development. We have had a valuable insight into their ‘roadmap’ of upcoming software features and user benefits and are even more convinced that they have a lot to offer the UK and Ireland markets.”

Tije Vos, Head of Business Development for Response Simulator, said, “The partnership with Ruth Lee is a perfect combination – our risk-free and cost-effective training tool Response Simulator is uniquely complementary to Ruth Lee’s mission to further enhance training capabilities for their customers. At the same time, their knowledge and expertise will allow us to drive far more benefits for potential clients in the UK and Ireland market.”

Both companies are excited about the partnership and its added value for safety and security professionals. Together, they will unlock the full potential of combining real-life and virtual training to place clients on the best path for enhanced training outcomes.
