Labicom is a web-platform of remote control of equipment and insturments via Internet and virtual simulators for practical training of technical specialists.

Our aim is to ensure the global market with highly-qualified practical-skilled specialists, drastically reducing equipment downtime and training expenditures.

Labicom develops interface of real measurement instruments and delivers it to the Internet, allowing their remote control in real-time, from a browser anywhere in the world. Remote control comes with virtual simulators, which completely copy real instruments (their interface, work results) and are available to thousands of specialists simultaneously. Using Labicom, apprentices and journeymen practice as if with real equipment, upgrade their skills from basic to advanced, as to their company requirments.

Thus Labicom is solving the world problem of an acute shortage of practical-skilled technical specialists (e.g. engineers deficiency in the USA is 1,8M peopl, in Africa...
Labicom is a web-platform of remote control of equipment and insturments via Internet and virtual simulators for practical training of technical specialists.

Our aim is to ensure the global market with highly-qualified practical-skilled specialists, drastically reducing equipment downtime and training expenditures.

Remote control comes with virtual simulators, which completely copy real instruments (their interface, work results) and are available to thousands of specialists simultaneously. Using Labicom, apprentices and journeymen practice as if with real equipment, upgrade their skills from basic to advanced, as to their company requirments.

Thus Labicom is solving the world problem of an acute shortage of practical-skilled technical specialists (e.g. engineers deficiency in the USA is 1,8M peopl, in Africa 2,5M), which is due to lack of hands-on practice in technical universities. Enterprises bear high costs – average training budget of top enterprises is $17,4M; 15% of equipment failure by entrants.

Labicom target industry is Electrical Engineering, which takes 25% of all engineering disciplines. Main focus is test and measurement instruments (T&M), like analyzers, oscilloscopes, generators, the market of which currently amounts over $12B.

We believe we can narrow the gap between technical education and enterprises requirements, thanks to our own know-how and R&D in the field of signal formation and transmission:
- No plugins to be installed and ports opened
- Cross-platform and cross-browser
- Safe access to dangerous equipment and equipment care
- Analysis of trainee’s hard skills

Simulation-based learning market, including corporate training games, is expected to reach $6.6B in 2017. But most of players are not browsed-based, do not provide remote control of real equipment and operating in other than engineering industries. Remote labs in education is a growing trend. But platforms of online labs are developed mainly by separate groups of professors and on grant money, like Go-Lab and UniLabs, which have already started cooperation with Labicom.

Our big vision is to link education and career, develop further in the field of Smart Factory (remote technical support), and become the basis of building new engineering talents who will shape the future

Recommendations

Bob Dorf Advisor at INTRINNO

I have coached and followed the Labicom team for about a year and have been greatly impressed with their agility, evolution, and progress. When we first met, this was more of a blurry vision and today it is shaping up as a serious, sizeable, scalable business opportunity. The technology seems extremely strong, the team stronger still, and the market opportunity is truly huge. The team has been refining its product and target markets to better achieve strong product/market fit, and I have confidence this will be a strong long-term business, particularly if the team and business hq relocate to the US, where I feel they need to be to optimize their chances for success.
