“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 agents by allowing them to leverage digital technology to showcase their products.

A diverse range of visualization 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. This is most commonly used by real estate agents in Singapore to showcase their beautiful properties.

3D 360° Virtual Tour (Yet-to-be-Built Property)

  • This offers the same interactive tour, however, this entire image is computer generated. Property developers use this to showcase the interiors of yet-to-be-built properties.

Architectural 3D Rendering (Image)

  • The most basic tool for architects, developers and interior designers. These simple still-image visualizations will highlight how a property will look after development.

Architectural Movie

  • Architectural movies use the same 3D rendering technology, allowing viewers to “fly” through large buildings and developments, hence experiencing the entire development space.

4k 360° Walk Through Animation

  • This allows viewers 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 Visualization

  • The company is among the first to launch an application for the Oculus Rift VR headset, allowing viewers to immerse themselves in a virtual environment in real-time. This is 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 see just how far technology has progressed.

Growing Beyond Singapore

Together, SpotWorks and IMME VR have completed projects in over 27 countries. Singapore, China, the United States and United Arab Emirates have currently been 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 types of 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.
