We integrate advanced technologies to create innovative and flexible solutions to support human engagement
Our story begins at two research labs at the University of Calgary. Inspired by the ideas and innovation they were witnessing, Jeff LaFrenz, Frank Maurer and Sheelagh Carpendale incorporated VizworX Inc. in May 2012 as a means of promoting and facilitating technology commercialization.
While VizworX’s original clients were in the oil and gas industry, we diversified to other sectors starting in 2014. Our markets expanded to include government, construction, defence and aerospace and our technology portfolio broadened to include immersive technologies such as augmented and virtual reality as well as artificial intelligence. Today, we can integrate multiple technologies to create powerful digital experiences that allow companies to gain insight into their data and better communicate with their stakeholders.
VizworX is proud to be part of Calgary’s tech sector and is passionate about supporting the digital transformation of organizations.
