LAVAL, Quebec, May 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urbanimmersive Inc. (“Urbanimmersive,” the “Company” or “UI”) (TSX VENTURE: UI) (OTC PINK: UBMRF) today announced a partnership with FastOffice, a commercial real estate technology company providing a 3D data visualization platform for marketing and managing commercial real estate office space.
FastOffice has been gaining significant traction in the commercial real estate market with a low cost and fast solution that accelerates decision making for brokers, tenants, landlords and property managers.
FastOffice has started offering Urbanimmersive’s 3D tours to its commercial real estate customers as a cost-effective option to quickly digitalize scaled-to-life large office and building spaces using standard 360 off-the-shelf cameras.
The partnership will provide FastOffice with access to Urbanimmersive’s network of photographers in North America to serve FastOffice large footprint real estate commercial clients. Parties have also agreed to integrate their technologies to deliver a first-class, highly innovative final product to FastOffice clients that will enable going from a complete 3D drawing rendering environment to photo 3D tours.
“While residential real estate is our main market, the ability of our 3D tours emulator to cost-effectively digitalizing large environments is enabling us to reach many different industries and verticals. Our partnership with FastOffice is a first meaningful natural application of our technologies outside the world of residential real estate and further validates our potential in other markets. We are excited to work with the FastOffice team, to immediately begin delivering upon this exciting partnership,” states Ghislain Lemire, President and CEO of Urbanimmersive.
Casey Myhre, co-founder and COO of FastOffice, stated “The core purpose of FastOffice has always been to use visualization to facilitate understanding and therefore, decision-making, in all aspects of commercial real estate. Whether it is marketing, leasing due diligence or - critically today - configuring safer offices for people returning to the workplace, people need to experience a space in 3D, on their terms, not through hard-to-read plans. This is even more true today, at a time when people cannot visit sites in person. Integrating Urbanimmersive’s images into our 3D plans and virtual tours enhances people’s understanding of a space even further, while helping us maintain the simplicity and speed of our platform.”
The partnership has already commenced and both companies look forward to it accelerating in the weeks ahead, helping FastOffice deliver a superior product to its clients.
