To capture a 3D virtual tour of your facilities for return-to-work spatial planning, check out these services

by Brianna Crandall — August 14, 2020 — Matterport, a provider of innovative 3D capture and spatial data, recently announced Matterport Capture Services, a fully managed solution for enterprise customers to book 3D virtual tours with Matterport Capture Technicians skilled in using the Matterport Pro 2 camera.

Matterport’s all-in-one three-dimensional (3D) data platform enables anyone to turn a physical space into an immersive digital twin and share it with others to connect and collaborate in 3D.

With an immersive digital twin of their properties, facilities managers (FMs) can create specific spatial management plans for safely reopening their facilities, and brokers and agents can empower clients to remotely and frequently explore, evaluate, and measure anything within the space, saving time and accelerating the decision-making process.

The new Capture Services enables companies to schedule 3D scans for hundreds or thousands of spaces across major cities in the United States, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Spain and Switzerland. Professionals can confidently book a vetted Capture Technician at a standardized price and expect a consistent level of service.

Brendan Dowdle, general manager of Matterport Capture Services, stated:

In the era of travel and social distancing restrictions, companies around the world realize the value of Matterport for promoting properties or assisting businesses with spatial planning for Return to Work initiatives. We’re excited to offer our enterprise customers with an ecosystem of professionals who are ready to capture digital twins of the highest quality from any of their office locations.

Through a simple online process, brokers and agents can book a Capture Technician and have 3D scans quickly delivered to them for immediate promotion. A unique link is generated for each property that can be added to websites, within listings and emails, or on social media channels, exponentially growing the number of prospects they can reach and engage.

Matterport notes that several global brands with thousands of brokers and agents are partnering with the company currently, including Cushman & Wakefield, Colliers International, JLL, and Engel & Völkers Americas. Regional partners include JPAR in Texas and LonRes in the UK.

Adam Stanley, chief information officer and chief digital officer at Cushman & Wakefield, remarked:

Our clients are increasingly relying on us to provide data and insights to help drive decision making and solve complex business challenges. This collaboration is a textbook example of how we’re moving the real estate process forward for property owners and enabling our professionals to deliver exceptional service to our clients through a virtual solution that is imperative in the current environment.

Those interested can experience a Matterport digital twin from Engel & Völkers or from JLL on the Matterport website.
