This SME pioneered the use of 3D virtual tours to view properties and now they are expanding!
“Better Than Real” is the tagline which sums up the work that local creative studio, SpotWorks Pte Ltd, specialises in.
Along with its sister company IMME VR, SpotWorks uses the latest Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and 3D imaging technology to create engaging videos, animation and virtual tours of architectural buildings and property interiors, bringing the future to life.
Technology as the medium
Their services empower architects, developers and real estate agent by allowing them to leverage digital technology to showcase their products.
A diverse range of visualisation options can be used for both existing as well as yet-to-be-completed projects.
These are some of their key products.
360° Photo Virtual Tour (Existing Property)
Converting a set of 360° photos of an existing property into an interactive tour for viewers online. These are most commonly used in Singapore by real estate agents to showcase their beautiful property
3D 360° Virtual Tour (Yet-to-be-Built Property)
This is the same interactive tour, however, this entire image is computer generated. Property developers use this to showcase the interior of yet-to-be-built properties.
Architectural 3D Rendering (Image)
The most basic tool for architects, developers and interior designers. These simple still image visualisation will highlight how a property will look after development.
Architectural movies uses the same 3D rendering technology, allowing viewers to fly through large buildings and developments, experiencing the entire development space.
4k 360° Walk Through Animation
This allows a viewer to have complete control of where and what they are looking at in a 360° virtual environment, in 4k video clarity. Every square inch of this video is computer generated.
3D Real Time Architectural Visualisation
They are among the first to launch an application for the Oculus Rift VR headset, allowing viewers to immerse themselves in the virtual environment in real-time. A step-up from the 4k 360° Walk Through Animation.
Augmented Reality Floorplan/Video Play
This augmented reality application uses the latest technological advances to project a creation directly onto the floor plan of a property. Watch this video to find just how far technology have progressed.
Growing Beyond Singapore
Together, SpotWorks and IMME VR, have completed projects in over 27 countries. Singapore, China, USA and UAE are currently identified as their key markets.
To scale the business, the directors intend to set up subsidiaries in the United States. This will allow them to reach their target clients more effectively.
Through the Lendingpot platform, the directors were connected to representatives from over 35 bank and non-bank financial institutions in Singapore.
After discussions, the directors decided to work with OCBC as they felt that the local bank offered the best proposal to support their business expansion plans
Speed and Efficiency of Assistance for SMEs
The directors of SpotWorks received 2 key assistance during their successful search for a business expansion partner.
Firstly, they were able to speak to a Business Advisor from an SME Centre.
Ms Amanda Tan*, a Senior Business Advisor from SME Centre @ SouthWest, not only provided clarity about the government’s assistance for small business owners, she was also able to guide them towards the right business contacts.
Secondly, the business relationship team from OCBC responded rapidly after being notified by Lendingpot’s Business Loan Marketplace.
It took them less than 3 working days to come up with a proposal after receiving additional documents from the company directors.
*SMEs are able to contact and schedule a session with Ms Amanda Tan via Linkedin.
