Growing from the drive to offer future-oriented solutions, Tom Janssens was one of the pioneers in building online 3D solutions. Then very progressive, today in full development, tomorrow the new normal.

2015 - Alexander joined

After a year of development, Tom took the decision to further commercialize one of his 3D solutions and went looking for a partner who could bring his technical solutions to the commercial market.

 

Tom's nephew Alexander Dekker saw the potential and joined in. After many creative brainstorming sessions,  they officialized their dream and  they rebranded to Virtual Sales Lab.

Together they further expanded the customer portfolio and the 3D solutions of Virtual Sales Lab. They were able to count a number of leading market players in their customer base, and provided most of the services themselves.
