BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are one of the leading greeting card design companies in Europe, working on over 1000 creative concepts yearly. We have a large team of designers and creatives working on bringing our concepts to live. Last year we decided to take this one step further and wanted to build an AR layer to the designs we have out on the market. I am a cofounder and main product owner for the app.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire WeAR Studio?

We came up with idea that all our designs could be brought to life using Augmented Reality. We came to WeAR Studio so that we could build a first version of our app and go out in the fields in order to test it with our sales representatives. We started with greeting cards designs only but soon realized we can be augmenting other items our company designs. Wine bottles, souvenirs, t-shirts and general merchandise we’re creating.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to test our ideas in a couple of specialized stores and see the reactions from people. Also, go to our partners in order to get more orders for AR and add to their products using our platform.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We went to review a couple of portfolio companies and WeAR Studio looked like the one with relevant experience. After an inperson workshop at their headquarter we liked the attention to detail and the ability to think big with us.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

WeAR Studio first gave us a round of consulting and helped in finalizing our vision of this future product. Full project workup, architecture, design and development have been performed by WeAR Studio.

What was the team composition?

There were the following experts working on our project at a certain stage: Business Analyst, UX designer, UI designer, Project Manager, Unity Developer, Backend developer and a QA engineer

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

We got to prove the concept and sell this product to our longterm partners thus we are already planning the next stage of development for the platform as we want to onboard more products and test out new types of merchandise. This is planned to become an integral part of our business model this year already.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We have had a dedicated project manager in the team that has been supporting us all throughout the development process. The founders of the Studio has become our consultants in many aspects. We enjoy the collaboration and involvement of the team

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Broad and deep expertise in AR sphere has provided a great benefit to the development of our platform. It’s important to have hand-on knowledge within the team that is there to consult you and help build your products.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can honestly say that we have been very happy with everything. We changed strategy a few times, developed new ideas to explore, the WEAR team is a pleasure to work with. And I can’t think of anything we could improve at this point.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a project manager and regional development directorate at Metinvest. We’re an international, vertically integrated mining and metals company. The group comprises mining and metallurgical assets in Ukraine, Europe, and the US, complemented by a global sales network. We manage the complete production chain, from extracting iron ore and coal to manufacturing semi-finished and finished steel products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire WeAR Studio?

We wanted to create an emotive AR app that could serve as a holiday present to congratulate our partners and clients. By using the AR app to scan images in our calendar and book, users would be able to see all of the stages of steel manufacturing.

What were your goals for this project?

The biggest goal was to impress our customers and inform them about our facilities while bringing more awareness to our brand.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We wanted to make an AR app and felt that WeAR Studio would be the best fit for the project.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

WeAR Studio built an AR app that interacted with our branded calendar and book. With the app, users could scan the images in the calendar to learn more about our facilities. The app would display a series of 360-degree panoramic photos detailing the various stages of steelmaking. Users could then move around by pointing their device in different directions. Scanning images from our book would display videos about our products’ manufacturing process.

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of project managers, Unity developers, a photographer, and QA testers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Together with our calendar and book, the AR app made for an impressive and useful present for our clients. It was a great opportunity to introduce our manufacturing facilities.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Our working process was clear and productive, so there were no conflicts nor misunderstandings.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

WeAR Studio knows what they’re doing in their field. They’re one of the most professional teams bringing AR technology to commercial use.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, not that I can think of.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a product and project manager of OKKO Group, an oil and gas business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire WeAR Studio?

We wanted to build an AR application to provide visitors to our gas station with a festive mood during the winter holidays. We envisioned turning our stations into places where people could rest, drink coffee, and feel positive emotions.

What were your goals for this project? 

We wanted to bring magic into peoples’ lives through the most common of routines: drinking coffee. Using advanced technology would help us both create a “wow” effect and improve our sales volume.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We turned to WeAR studio with this request because they have a very strong team of 3D artists. We were confident in the quality of their animations.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We prepared special coffee cups with the company’s mascots, which the AR app would bring to life. The festive characters sing Christmas songs to users as they step off the coffee cup. Users scan the special coffee cups using their phones, and that activates the OKKO mascots. People also have their choice of song for the characters to sing. The more coffee a user collects, the more characters they see singing together. There are five company characters and five festive songs in the app.

What was the team composition?

We worked with unity developers, 3D artists, project managers, and QA testers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app is live and functions properly.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project manager and lead developer handled the management. Their team was quick to respond to requests and always provided multiple fixes to every problem.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their creative ideas and level of expertise in 3D art and AR development were outstanding.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, not really.
