VDI Team has a long term vision, and will recognise it’s early adopters. Anyone who downloads and registers details in their profile, in the first months of initial release (during special intro pricing times), will receive this lifelong, permanent status, which cannot be bought or assigned later. It will mean many new features in the future are free, and included for Foundation members, that others will either pay for, or not have access to at all. We would like for Foundation members to get many times the value they pay, from our platform.
First, while there are gaming elements which will be developed further over time, this is not just a game. It’s an advanced diving simulator incorporating complex programming to include buoyancy
control, ear equalistaion, it includes a full Buhlman algorithm, air monitoring based on an estimated sac rate, realistic diving trim and kicking. Realistic bottom formation as well as a large variety of marine life. It also includes a training system with interactive skill performance for skills like mask clear, regulator clear and ascent descent procedure. This is a highly sophisticated app by any standard.
Games are typically free or priced at a low entry price, but then the user will typically spends a
significant amount of money to access all areas and pay for in app purchases. Our initial release as
stated is far more advanced than the entry point of most games, but as stated you’re paying for a
dive simulator not just a game. Very importantly this is a Foundation membership, your cost
includes access to all current features and regular updates for the first year.
We have targeted phase one roll out at existing divers and in particular the dive industry to get
feedback we can include in future releases. The second release will be implemented in just two
All future upgrades are free for all Foundation members. This is not a download play and discard
app – it is a long- term investment.
The two company directors have more than 50 years industry experience between them and are
well aware of various financial models in the industry. We designed this App specifically to grow the global market and while we see the benefit in a commission structure the real benefit comes from the industry growth this App will create.
We are open to a reseller model, but we need to consider the technical aspects and financial model. The App store/ Play store already takes a significant fee. As we develop further in app purchase options, we will have more revenue opportunities that enable us to look at an ongoing revenue sharing option. We are in the launch phase, and we are in unchartered waters, no one has ever done what we are doing and until we see how everything unfolds and the best way to set up a
reseller option our focus is on delivering a product that will expand your business and the industry
The real value is in how this App can be leveraged to send your business into overdrive. Diving has a high barrier to entry to learn to dive and retain divers. That’s why as an industry we get less than .05% recruitment and 80% drop out rate. The irony is that diving has an extremely high interest level that has never transitioned into industry growth, the VDI App will have change this situation.
Acquisition- The VDI App breaks down all the barriers to introducing potential divers to diving. By sending information about the App to your customer base users will use the App and show their friends and family how much fun diving can be.
By sending a link to the App to people who inquire about diving if they don’t sign up for a course straight away the App may be just enough to excite them to sign up for a course.
Retention -The VDI App creates a constant link to keep divers involved in their sport. It introduces divers a full range of con ed courses and is a constant source of reinforcement of the importance of Con Ed
Re discovery- this is the ideal complement to a refresher to re-ignite interest after time out of the water. Especially valuable after Covid.
We have made an enormous investment in this platform and unfortunately we cannot give our
product away free.
While we understand there may be good reason under special circumstances to give the App away
so you can trial the platform at this time we are not set up for this and we do not have the time to
assess every individual request. At just $35 introductory price you will get incredible value and Foundation membership, only available to early adopters.
At some point we may go down this path for a very limited “taster” but this is not close to the
extensive offering we are making to foundation members.
