Augmented Reality: Wow Factor for Customer Engagement

  • We created an app that offers AR-enhanced discovery for travelers. The delivered iOS product was launched as a key part of the client’s marketing campaign. It allowed the client to attract plenty of media attention and convert it into business opportunities.

Building and Delivering Smooth Augmented Experiences

  • The most challenging task for the team was to guarantee that the user would receive information for famous places by pointing the camera, even in conditions with weak WiFi/GPS signals. The app needed to be able to cover both static and moving scenes, including cars, trains, and airplanes in motion.
  • We combined several technical solutions and built a custom component on the top of the AR Kit. The final result was a success!

Successful projects typically start with a business need or problem that must be solved by means of technology. Besides our trend picks, there are further business areas where augmented reality can be applied—in many cases combined with other innovative technologies—to make or break a business on the market. The future of augmented reality is here, and there are numerous practical cases for mobile AR showing up.
