We design a full virtual copy of prestigious residential complex. It is implemented in virtual reality and used in real estate sales.
Additionally, CRM systems were integrated into this project to collect and analyze actions during a virtual session. In addition to the helmet itself, this project involves the use of a neurogadget that tracks the levels of attention and concentration. The data collected using a neurogadget

also goes into the CRM system.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The-Parallel built our sales tool with several unique features. One of the elements within the platform enables VR touring. Users can view apartments and houses, while virtually walking through the locations. The platform was created to be very interactive. Their team also built a CRM system into the platform.

What is the team composition?

We worked with 2–3 people from their team.

How did you come to work with The-Parallel?

The-Parallel approached us with their ideas, and we chose them because of their deep understanding of the technologies. We liked them because we could learn about the devices in the field from experts.

We spent around $25,000 on the whole project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them on this project from March–July 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

The-Parallel was responsible and kept us on track, pushing us to make necessary decisions. Their team was proactive and stayed on top of the workload. We felt lucky to work with them because of how they managed the project. We primarily communicated via email.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The film made a positive impact with its polished, realistic visuals. Although The-Parallel worked remotely, their proactive attitude and quick, responsive communication kept progress consistent.  

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

BackLite Media is a media organization with a portfolio of premium outdoor and digital media solutions. I'm the administration manager. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What were your goals for this project?

Our contract for several prime outdoor advertising locations expired, so the landlord offered the locations in a public tender. Our goal was to submit a successful technical and financial bid that impressed the landlord and secured a new contract. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We invited The-Parallel to give a presentation on their capabilities, with a particular focus on VR. 

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We wanted to show an innovative, impactful vision of how our new signs would look, rather than relying on a simple two-dimensional illustration. We decided that a short VR film would be the best solution. Using the 360-degree photographs of the location and technical drawings from the sign designer, The-Parallel produced an impressive VR film. 

What was the team composition?

Since our project was fairly simple, the team was small. One person at The-Parallel worked with me. The photographer and sign design companies were also involved.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Feedback on the VR film was highly positive; the landlord was impressed with its lifelike rendition of the sign. Although we're still awaiting the results, we are confident that our bid will succeed. We have no doubt that the VR film served an important role in our presentation.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They managed the project remotely through phone calls and messages. We had no issues.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by the speed of their responses and the helpfulness of our contact. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't suggest anything.
