Key clients: 

Companies wishing to implement innovative training and marketing solutions, software related companies with multiple projects and big brand clients also those who want to augment their in-house teams to reduce development time or need some domain/technology expertise. Small and medium-sized enterprises and product companies. We've worked for Cisco, Ford, Omron, Walmart, Carrefour, Tauron, Viessmann, IKEA, MGA Entertainment and many many more.

The client provided us with a set of colouring books, which were to become the basis for creating “animated” models possible to see thanks to the use of mobile devices. The client supplied the colouring pages and asked us to prepare an application that would make them come alive on a smartphone’s screen after pointing the device’s camera at them. The colours applied on the card were also to be reflected in the form of extended

3D reality.

Here's how it works: we color the selected picture in the booklet. We run a dedicated application on your phone or tablet. When we direct the device's camera to our image, the application changes the two-dimensional side into a three-dimensional scene. We can see everything on the screen of our device. In addition, the application recognizes what colors we used and displays the same colored objects on the screen of the device. Thanks to augmented reality, these coloring pages come to life.

Travel agencies - as well as other service-oriented enterprises - strive to engage potential customers more and more, offering a wide range of gadgets and additional benefits. A frequent procedure is also the use of the possibilities offered by the implementation of modern technologies: by building websites, social channels or mobile applications.

However, these tools are so common that their implementation does not

distinguish the company in any way. Interactive AR catalogues allow you to present your destination in a completely new, original way. They illustrate selected locations, enabling them to experience them in real time.

The main purpose of the AR travel catalogue is to promote chosen places in unusual way. They engage the potential buyers in fun and exciting way, attaching interactive content to traditional paper catalogues. Now, the customer can read detailed description of their destination or just pull out their phone and start actually exploring it with movies, pictures or interactive AR models. 

The client needed an application that would provide the employees with access to professional knowledge, no matter where they are located. With this application, railway workers should know how to conduct maintenance of selected rail components.

Thanks to the HoloLens training they can see their correct visual representations and get information about the individual components and maintenance procedures. The entire

application was to be made for the Microsoft HoloLens device, completed with gestures, eye movement tracking and voice navigation.

Navigation in the HoloLens training app is done using gestures or voice commands. The user has a range of options to choose from, which are combined with an interactive three-dimensional hologram.

Future is digital: VR shopping experience

The client wanted an VR e-commerce application that would allow the customer to make real purchases in a virtual reality. The customer can test the use of selected products in an environment where they could really use them, check their parameters and view them in the smallest details.

Virtualization of purchases  VR e-commerce experience is the solution that the most recognizable brands implement to their services

nowadays. It is not just about the possibility of building a new engagement with the client. Now we can take the product we are interested with help of our virtual controllers, see it on a 1:1 scale, and even try it in the chosen environment.

It sounds like science fiction, but it is an innovative purchasing VR e-commerce platform that allows you to order items that you like, which you tested in virtual reality and know that in the real world their performance will be almost identical. That how it works.

Innovative way of training: VR Leadership Training

Crisis situations occur in every profession. There are many businesses in which the reaction to the crisis is limited to the use of soft skills. However, there are many professions where the emergence of a crisis situation can lead to very dangerous situations related to the health or even the threat of life of other people.

In this case, standards and instructions must be followed, depending on when the crisis occurs.

In a well-defined work environment, it is possible to define a specific number of situations that may be related to the emergence of a crisis. 

A person who dives in a virtual environment, which is modeled in the smallest details, is immersing very quickly. A player easily gets into the whole situation and can use his knowledge and experience to deal with the crisis situation. In another case, VR leadership training is an excellent tool that tests resistance to stress and allows to see the effects of decisions in real time.

The client submitted materials related to the company’s current training courses. We analyzed them and proposed a scenario that conveyed the required message, taking advantage of our experience from previous training course developments.

Coal mine: VR safety training

The VR mine training includes all known scenarios leading to injuries, teaching miners the correct order of security operations. All the features of the app allow users to exercise their practical skills that are essential for their workplace. We combined realistic sounds of working machines with detailed graphics (based on real pictures) of the mining area and equipment - creating a highly immersive simulation of working

conditions.

Wide functionality of the VR mine safety training includes moving around the realistic models of working equipment, which size and placement imitates the real working environment. As in real life, miner have his own set of virtual tools - which can be used in a few ways. All activities have their consequences, following a structure of logical tree - created under the client’s strict supervision.

There is also a possibility for an ‘exam session’, where all tips and instructions are hidden - forcing participant to provide the right order by they own. Such solution should be mandatory for all workers in order to avoid employee reluctance due to missing knowledge (as well as to avoid worst-case scenarios, including death).

VR mine safety training decreases the cost of training by eliminating the necessity of going 700 m down the mine (which costs 30 min one way and can distract other miners). The application successfully facilitates every health and safety training until this day.

Interactive Storytelling: Scenes from World War II

The way we share experiences is nothing but the way in which we create stories and fill them with emotions.

For this project, we created a three-dimensional city in which scenes from the Warsaw Uprising are being played out. We put a lot of emphasis on the atmosphere of the places where the action takes place. The time of day, lighting and all additional props were important. We modelled and animated people, machines

and weapons. We see insurgents in the ruins of the city. We implemented destroyed buildings, dying people, planes that drop bombs.

It is the reflection of true events in which we can participate from the first person’s perspective. We have given up the controllers so that the player can focus on what is happening around him. There is no possibility of teleportation. A person can only move within the area that is scanned by HTC Vive or OCULUS. Subsequent sequences of events are triggered when the player looks at a specific area. For example, if we perform an action, such as reading a note or approaching an object, another chain of events is launched. The whole app is made in Unreal Engine.

ArchViz Paris - Virtual Environment for Real Estate and Interior Decorator

Revolution in home design and interior decoration

Photo-realistic, interactive visualizations of interiors designed especially for virtual reality. Combination of spatial presentation with real-time configuration possibility.

We created professional skills training for a specific job where the user must perform a series of operations in a specific order. We modelled realistic representation of the workplace, added conversation elements that inform the user about his tasks + comments on the tasks step by step.

All these elements allow you to practice the practical skills that are essential in the workplace. They teach you how to avoid

mistakes and to know what to look out for. Such VR training should be made mandatory for workers to avoid employee reluctance due to missing knowledge.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements PIAP was established in 1965 as a national institute, which basic task was preparing and implementing new technologies, utomation systems, production facilities and specialist measuring equipment in various branches of industry including special mobile robots application solds more than 18 country all over the world.

Nearly fifty years of our close cooperation with industry brought about a number of newly developed products and significant implementations. My professional and scientific activities focus on two main areas:

  • Additive manufacturing technologies targeted at the needs of demanding industrial applications
  • Mobile robotics targeted at work in harsh environments that are hazardous to human health and life, including potentially explosive areas.
OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 4Experience?

We wanted a better way to demonstrate top-notch quality of our 3D printers. Massive, heavy components are often bulky to carry and might cause some disturbance to people nearby while in use.

It is also hard to visualize its true dimensions without asking the buyer to go directly into the company's facilities. The challenge here was to precisely reproduce the printer’s mode of operation by creating animations of the entire process (e.g. opening of some elements).

What were your goals for this project?

We needed a fully portable mobile app, that would be useful not only for the company’s representatives but also for customers wishing to familiarize themselves with the 3D printer offered by PIAP.

The basic idea was to show the visitors how a 3D printer device works. The goal was to provide the option to see the inside of the device.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

4Experience was referred to us. We were looking for someone experienced, who offers high-quality products for competitive prices.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

The application uses surface scanning technology to generate a 3D printer model in the scanned area. The user can approach the device, look closely at the printing process, press virtual buttons and watch an animation of the printer in operation.

Although the user has no influence on the animation itself, it is possible to view the components of the device from the inside. Basically, the app is able to show everything that should be included in the technical and operational documentation of specialist equipment.

What was the team composition?

I was responsible for managing the work as a Product Owner. At the vendor side, there was a PM, a Unity 3D developer, and a graphic artist.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The project served as a pilot for the implementation of new AR, VR and MR technologies in our innovative products, designed in accordance with industry 4.0 convention.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We worked with a project manager. 4Experience’s team used the Scrum agile framework combined with regular stand-ups. During our weekly calls, we would go over and review progress. They also organized regular feedback sessions, as a result of which there were constant improvements being made to the project.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The dynamics in the operation of the 4Experience team was important for us, both at the stage of application development as well as its implementation and technical support.

They are always available and extremely knowledgeable in the field of AR/VR development. Our company was on a tight timeline and strict budget to create a mobile app and 4Experience was the perfect partner. They always deliver the highest quality results and client satisfaction is their major goal.

The award-winning VR video stands out at trade shows and is impressive to potential hires. The 4Experience team is professional and organized, working quickly on both shoots and editing.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Selleo is building collocated agile teams with an entrepreneurial sense of ownership. Since 2005 we have designed and engineered well over 150 web and mobile software projects. Through the years we have gathered a broad spectrum of industry expertise with a specialization in the development of custom business process management tools, digital dashboards, e-learning services, marketing platforms, data analytics, and processing solutions.

I’m holding the position of Chief Communication Officer being responsible for internal and external communication. Within the company, I help in creating the mindset which focuses on a self-driven growth towards ingenious mastery and knowledge-sharing culture combined with a participative approach to decision making and empowerment based on Management 3.0.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 4Experience?

We would like to have an innovative VR solution to show our office and culture to both people applying to Selleo and our prospects. At that time we have observed that the client was much more prone to select us in his tendering process if he had the chance to visit us and see the company for himself. We have thus decided that we want to give that ability to all prospects that visit our website by incorporating a 360-degree virtual tour of our offices.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to provide the opportunity to have a glimpse of the experience on how it is to work in Selleo. We wanted to show our environments and the people that deliver the service. An important part of the project was to incorporate the videos of us performing our typical daily activities on the clients we serve. We wanted to have a web version of the project for our clients and a Gear VR version to use during career fairs.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We perceived the solution to be based on virtual reality and we needed the provider to perform all the image acquisition on-site so we selected a local company for convenience.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

The project was to design and acquire all the images and video shoots onsite and convert them to interactive 360 panoramas and videos. The videos included a pre-recorded lector who was guiding the user through the experience. The final experience was delivered in two variants: the first one was embedded on our website and the second one was playable on Gear VR devices which we used during events targeted at potential candidates for future employees.

What was the team composition?

I was responsible for managing the work as a Product Owner. At the vendor side, there was a PM, photographer, web developer, Unity 3D developer, and a graphic artist.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We have been using the virtual tour ever since during our sales process but also a few of our prospects mentioned that they are impressed by our offices and the daily routines we have presented even though they have only visited us virtually. As it comes to employee-related events our VR glasses are always a way to stand out and a fun experience that gives a glimpse of what it is like to work at our company. We got the EBStars Recognition for Best Digital Action at the 7th edition of the Employer Branding Stars.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The photoshoot was professionally organized and took two days including the filming of the daily routines. At first together with their project manager we created a scenario and planned most of the activities involved.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I know that at that time their VR technology was in the infancy and yet the vendor already an impressive portfolio of realizations. They had excellent knowledge of their domain.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Delivering the final product required some additional back and forth as some of the initial requirements changed during the production.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a software company developing solutions for elderly people based on AI. Our product is under research and development, so it's not on the market. I am the CFO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 4Experience?

We hired 4Experience to create a 3D environment and trigger human falls randomly.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to train an AI model to recognize falls on a video.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found 4Experience on Upwork, and after an interview the team seemed very talented and understood our needs very quickly. We were reviewing eight different freelancers/companies. My main developer and I were involved in the selection process.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They created a scene on Unity, (like a flat with a bathroom) and the program placed a person randomly in the room. The person could either fall, sit on a chair, or lay down on the bed. On the top of that, they built a console application in C# so we can generate thousands of falling videos quickly. The console program allowed us to modify some environment variable (light, speed) The expected result is a video of the scene.

What was the team composition?

We used to talk to a project manager, and two/three engineers were working on 3D and programming.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We are on our way to improve the falling recognition system, and with the work from 4Experience we are able to train a system that understands a human fall by just showing video.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project manager took our needs, and we used Trello to set up all the tasks. It was quite efficient.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their capacity for understanding our needs quite well and finding the right solution for a very reasonable price was great. They were very reactive to our feedback and answers.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don't have any improvement in mind. They are very impressive.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We're the Polish branch of an international parcel delivery company and operate mainly in the express road-based market. We strive for a more personal approach to delivery. We're continuously evolving our customer experience to deliver brilliantly simple solutions to make sending and receiving parcels easier and more flexible.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 4Experience?

We needed a developer to help with parcel-sorting-line visualization design, VR simulation development, and animation.

What were your goals for this project?

There were three areas that required the team’s attention. First, we needed a way to teach our new employees how to pick up parcels from a semi-trailer and place them on a sorter properly and efficiently. Our aim was to teach our employees how to spot parcels of irregular shapes and sizes pre-emptively. Second, we wanted to teach sorting line workers how to properly pick up parcels from the conveyor belt to transfer them onto a perpendicular belt. Third, we needed to teach our employees how to transfer the parcels from the sorter to the semi-trailer. Our aim was to teach them how to optimally stack the parcels on the semi-trailer.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our business partners told us about 4Experience’s quality work and detail-oriented approach.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

4Experience developed three apps for the HTC Vive, which simulate a workstation with specific directions and locations. In the first app, their team configured the "conveyor belt to perpendicular belt" training simulator with three different speeds for the three different stages of training. In the second app, their developers configured the "semi-trailer to the telescopic sorter" training simulator with features that only allow parcels of a certain size and shape to be placed. They also created a special bucket for all irregular and untypical parcels and parcels longer than 150 cm inside the simulation. They programmed a report generator at the end of each stage with the number of mistakes made and a confirmation if they can proceed to the next stage. They also implemented an aggregated report generator that shows the number of parcels that have been sent incorrectly and on the number of parcels that have been passed through.

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of one graphic designer and two Unreal Engine programmers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

4Experience's training solution was incredibly versatile. We fully implemented the apps in our organization, constructed a special training room for them, and planned follow-up VR training sessions. We used the apps not only for training but for recruitment purposes.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

4Experience did a magnificent managing our needs and expectations. Their workflow was exceptional. Although the project grew as it progressed, 4Experience demonstrated an incredible ability to pack a lot of quality features in a rather narrow time frame.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The quality of the apps was outstanding. The team modeled every single detail with such accuracy that the simulations feel lifelike. They were always supportive and understanding, even with the large scope of work we entrusted them with.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

The project took more time to complete than we initially expected. However, their team warned us about that in the beginning.

We manufacture industrial sealing systems and supply quality products to 70 countries worldwide. We follow European standards and regulations to ensure the highest-quality, heavy-duty solutions. We put an emphasis on state-of-the-art technological solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 4Experience?

We needed to convert 11 of our products and their flange‑type fastening elements into virtual models. We wanted the models to be animated. We also wanted to create a virtual room with a library of products through mobile apps.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed modern software to represent our company as innovative and forward-thinking. We also wanted our clients to familiarize themselves with our products through our AR tools.

 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

4Experience was recommended to us by word of mouth and the quality of their work was widely acclaimed.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

Using our technical documentation, they created sealing models and animations. The 4Experience team designed an entire room displaying our products using Unity 3D, Gear VR, and HTC Vive technologies. Their team made sure users could freely move around the room and preview all the products. They also configured our products to be interactive—allowing users to scale, calibrate, manipulate, rotate, and take them apart. 4Experience also added animations, technical details of our products, and background music.

In order to optimize the applications, our more complex models were put in a second virtual reality (VR) room. Their team created this room to allow users to see what operations are performed when assembling a particular sealing model (welding).

What was the team composition?

The team included graphic designers, who were responsible for object modeling and preparing the VR environment. It also included a lead developer, who was responsible for coding and preparing the apps.

The software and apps prepared by 4Experience are heavily used by our marketing department and our resellers. They reported to us that the technology allows them to present our products and principles of operation in an easy, entertaining, and accurate way. Because the size of the seals makes them difficult to transport in larger quantities, the apps came in handy by facilitating the presentation of our products. Apart from the visual impact, they also easily convened basic information to our clients. The modern designs they produced display an innovative image of our company.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The team showed an exceptional level of professionalism and was open to all our challenges. They worked flawlessly according to a tight schedule and provided us with assistance at every stage of development. 4Experience delivered subsequent software builds every Thursday. On Fridays, the team held a meeting with us in order to review the current version of the software and apps.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were delighted with the team’s approach to our challenges. Their meticulous 3D modeling and attention to even the slightest details made a great impression on us. The way our products came to life in their software was nothing short of astonishing.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

The design of the virtual environment was a time-consuming problem. It took some time before they managed to work out a solution. It would have been much better if they had proposed several conceptual solutions in the beginning.
