The Next Big Leap: Aditya Birla Capital’s Virtual Metaverse Lounge

Aditya Birla Capital, the financial solutions division of the globally acclaimed Aditya Birla Group, is setting a new benchmark in the Indian non-banking financial sector with the introduction of OneVerse, an immersive virtual metaverse lounge. This futuristic project replicates the physical branch in a digital space, inviting customers to interact with Protecting, Investing, Financing, and Advising solutions at their convenience.

The virtual lounge extends its reach beyond the conventional scope of customer interaction, offering digital aids and access to self-service channels such as a user-friendly WhatsApp bot. Customers can conveniently explore these digital resources by scanning QR codes or clicking on posters within the virtual lounge.

The Metaverse Experience: Transcending Physical Boundaries

The immersive nature of OneVerse aims to provide users with a unique, engaging experience that closely mimics the familiar environment of a physical branch. Users can explore the lounge using a fully customizable avatar and interact with agents just as they would in a traditional branch.

This groundbreaking initiative is accessible through Aditya Birla Capital’s website, mobile app, and, uniquely, through the Oculus VR headset. By early next year, the experience will also be accessible via Apple Vision Pro, further extending the reach and convenience of this digital innovation.
