"Augmented reality has transcended the demo stage, becoming a vital part of today's product and retail strategies," comments Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. He continues, "The race is on to ARitize™ or convert 2D objects into 3D immersive demonstrations with SNAP, Apple and Samsung all racing to be first to market with new 3D mobile scanning and viewing devices. Our platform is an industry first, and allows anyone with a 3D model to upload the model and start using it as an AR object immediately, no programming required, which was incredibly hard to do and we believe will be a great tool for helping companies to accelerate AR integration globally."
The ARitize™ website was created for brands and companies alike, to curate immersive, white-label experiences for selling, teaching, and sharing products and services. Create digital twins of pretty much anything using smartphones, scanners, or 3D modelling software like Maya, Cinema 4D, or 3D Studio Max. All you need is a GLTF file to ARitize your business. The website aims to democratize the process of ARitizing eCommerce businesses, showcasing value for each vertical targeted by the platform - Retail, Education, and Entertainment.
In addition to providing self service AR the enhanced SEO behind NexTech's new product site ARitize™ is expected to be a major lead generation tool accelerating the rapid sign up pace of new SaaS subscribers for NexTech.
