NGW will utilize NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce platform to showcase true 3D-AR models of their available artwork, enabling 3D-AR previewing of the monuments for clients.

“Nordland’s Granite Works is committed to bringing only the best quality service to our community and clients. Having over four decades of experience in the monument industry, we are certain that the capabilities of augmented reality will give our future clients peace of mind in knowing exactly what the monuments they are investing in will look like as they consider options for themselves or their loved ones,” said Dave van Nostrand, Executive Director of Norland’s Granite Works. “There is no doubt that the integration of AR into our business will become the industry standard within the next few years.”

With this AR solution NGW’s customers will be able to preview the monument in high fidelity 3D, with full 360-degree rotation, without having to take the added step of driving to a showroom. NexTech’s browser-based AR technology eliminates the gap online shoppers experience between themselves and the product. Using AR as a solution NGW will empower new customers to virtually place the fonts or designs on their plaque or stone of choice and see it in 3D as a virtual object, before they buy it for themselves or their loved ones. NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce solution is a monthly SaaS subscription platform that enables companies like NGW to transform 2D images into true 3D-AR experiences.

“This is another great win for our sales team which is now signing up new customers to our AR e-Commerce SaaS platform every week,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “The continued rapid adoption of our ARitize™ eCommerce platform by retailers across various industries demonstrates the demand for and effectiveness of our innovative AR technologies in the eCommerce space.”

New York, NY – Toronto, ON – May 20, 2019 – NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTCQB: NEXCF)(CSE: NTAR)(FSE: N29) today announced the roll out of their ARitizeTM App with a Budweiser-branded augmented reality activation to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Toronto’s Budweiser Stage. Budweiser selected NexTech’s  ARitize ™ app to trigger an augmented reality experience which is activated when pointing the phone at a 25th anniversary Budweiser can.  Starting today, May 20th, 2019, NexTech will be running a social media driven contest giving away season tickets to the Budweiser stage which will be featuring over 60 acts including, Lenny Kravitz, Bryan Adams, Lionel Ritchie, Mary J. Blidge, Adam Sandler, Jimmy Buffett, Wiz Khalifa, Blink 182, Iron Maiden, Beck, Game Of Thrones Live and many more.

See the full list here

The ARitizeTM App, available on both Apple and Android mobile devices, uses advanced 3D imaging technology to create engaging augmented reality experiences. Available to both brands and individuals, the app allows users to tell their stories through curating a branded channel of interactive activations that enhance existing content, materials and goods. With a low entry cost for mass deployment via mobile phones, ARitize™ App experiences are consistent across all existing content mediums.

“We’re excited to be launching our ARitizeTM App with an activation for a well-respected brand like Budweiser and showcasing how augmented reality can enhance customer engagement,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “Our app allows brands to curate an immersive, branded experience where they can sell, teach, communicate and share their product, service or experience through Augmented Reality (AR) that is accessible on a device all consumers use regularly – their mobile phone.”

As part of the anniversary celebrations, fans will be prompted to download the ARitizeTM App when purchasing limited edition cans of Budweiser, available throughout Ontario, to gain access to an immersive brand experience and enter a contest to win Budweiser Stage season tickets. Upon launching the Budweiser activation within the app and aiming their device’s camera at one of the special-edition cans, users will see different visuals, which they are encouraged to capture and share on social media as their entry into the contest. This Budweiser activation creates a significant footprint of usage of NexTech’s AR solutions Aritize™ app within Canada.

Brands who implement augmented reality experiences are likely to see higher conversions. A recent study from Digital Bridge found that 74 percent of consumers expect retailers to offer an augmented reality experience, while Daymon reports that 72 percent of consumers said they have purchased something they were not planning to after experiencing it through AR.

NexTech has built its AR and AI eCommerce platform as an affordable, scalable, customizable, and most importantly, easy solution to integrate within an existing web interface, making NexTech one of the leaders in the rapidly growing AR industry, estimated to hit $120 billion by 2022 according to Statista.

NexTech Signs AR eCommerce Deal with The Wright Brothers USA to Provide Immersive Online Shopping Experiences

NexTech will ARitize™apparel and memorabilia to optimize the online shopping experience and create unique, branded learning moments tied to the history and science of aviation

The Wright Brothers USA is the exclusive global licensor for The Wright Brothers trademark, which is owned by The Wright Brothers Family Foundation. NexTech will create 3D product models of The Wright Brothers® merchandise and apparel through its web AR eCommerce platform.

NexTech is converting several of The Wright Brothers products—a bicycle and a pair of sunglasses—plus a pair of aviation goggles into high-fidelity 3D models to be used on TWBUSA online stores. Customers will be able to view products in full 3D, with 360-degree rotation, as well as “try on” glasses and goggles through AR technology before purchase. Additionally, TWBUSA will explore the use of NexTech’s sentiment analysis technology. When customers “try on” aviation goggles using augmented reality, their reactions will be analyzed in real-time, delivering valuable insights into shopper preferences which can be used to drive purchases and other marketing initiatives.

The AR versions of both the bicycle and goggles will also trigger a unique “moment-stealing” experience, built by the NexTech team. These interactive experiences will bring realistic lessons on engineering, aviation and technology directly into homes and classrooms. These experiences are ideal for students exploring STEM curriculum.

“Our partnership with The Wright Brothers USA is unique as we’re bringing together two different use-cases for augmented reality: retail and education,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech AR Solutions. “The Wright Brothers store can provide shoppers with a truly customized online retail experience using sentiment analysis and ‘Try it On’ features while also keeping the rich history and legacy of the brothers alive using 3D, volumetric learning experiences that come to life when customers interact with memorabilia.”

“The Wright Brothers USA is pleased to announce a collaborative effort to leverage the augmented reality expertise of NexTech with the strength of The Wright Brothers brand. TWBUSA seeks products and services that embody the character of the Wright brothers who are American icons of inventiveness and innovation,” said Kenneth Botts, President of The Wright Brothers USA. “To that end, we believe new technologies such as augmented reality fit well to boost The Wright Brothers Store online experience for our visitors. Furthermore, AR technology aligned with The Wright Brothers brand has the potential to create that twinkle-in-the-eye moment for STEM students, inspiring our future pilots and aerospace engineers.”

Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020.

NexTech Partners with The Khronos Group for Future 3D Commerce Standards and Guidelines

May 8, 2019 – New York, NY – Toronto, ON – NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) today announced that it joined Khronos an exploratory group of leading retailers, manufacturers, and technology companies in a groundbreaking collaboration to establish 3D commerce standards and guidelines. The exploratory group was formed by Khronos® Group, an open consortium of leading companies creating advanced 3D standards, at the end of April. Adobe, Deloitte Consulting, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, NVidia, Pinterest, Qualcomm, Samsung and Shopify are among the tech companies participating in the exploratory group.

Khronos cited a study by Gartner that predicts massive growth for AR/VR shopping in the next few years as high-speed 5G technology expands worldwide. Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than 100 million consumers will shop using AR technology. About fifty percent of retailers plan to deploy AR/VR 3D technology by next year, according to the report. With 5G’s higher speeds consumers will be able to experience real-time renderings creating truly immersive experiences. Once 5G technology is available NexTech is planning to launch a holographic fully volumetric 3D-AR human assistant which can be programmed to be used for eCommerce or for education.

The exploratory group will work together to research the creation of standards and guidelines to produce and distribute real-time 3D representations of products so they can be experienced realistically and consistently across all platforms and devices, such as mobile, Web and Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) solutions.

“We are excited to join this incredible group of leading companies to help further the creation and adoption of 3D virtual products across a variety of platforms. As 3D visualization technologies become more prevalent, it’s crucial to be able to present these experiences consistently across multiple consumer endpoints like eCommerce websites, apps, in social feeds, and in ad units,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “Our diverse tech stack and leadership position in AR e-commerce makes us an ideal member for this group, as we’re able to address a major pain point through our solutions – transforming content from  2D into the 3D-AR e-commerce world. We look forward to collaborating together to solve the industry’s friction points within 3D visualization, and to develop new standards that can shape the future of the technology.”

With 3D poised to grow as a new shopping medium for product manufacturers, retailers and advertising platforms, key players in the industry are now looking at how to scale production and achieve broad distribution for virtual products with optimized industry workflows to minimize costs. Working in collaboration with NexTech on this initiative are leading global retail brands and technology companies including Adobe, Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, Deloitte Consulting, Facebook, Ferguson Ventures, Google, Houzz, IKEA, JD.com, Lowe’s, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Pinterest, Qualcomm, Samsung, Shopify, Target, ThreeKit, Topline Furniture, Unity Technologies, UX3D, Wayfair, and Williams-Sonoma Inc./Outward.

NexTech’s industry-leading AR solutions empower retail organizations to use AR experiences to reach consumers at various touchpoints, including eCommerce, social media, and ad networks. The company has also enhanced its product offerings for 3D asset creation, making it easier for retailers to turn products into rich AR experiences.

NexTech Integrates Microsoft Azure (AI) and Launches Sentiment Analysis Capabilities Within ‘Try-It-On’ AR Solution Creating Industry’s Most Personalized Online Shopping Experience

New York, NY – Toronto, ON – April 30, 2019 – NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) )(FSE: N29) today announced the launch of sentiment analysis capabilities within its ‘Try-It-On’ augmented reality (AR) experience for online retail, the second in a series of sentiment-based technology solutions being developed for its patent pending web-enabled AR eCommerce platform and site optimization.

This latest feature is an integration of computer vision technology programmed to analyze shoppers’ sentiment in real time as they ‘try on’ different products. Using Microsoft Azure, the technology is able to live sample shoppers’ facial expressions every few seconds and will make recommendations through on-screen prompts based on a positive or negative reaction. Currently, the prototype of prompts is set on ‘smiling’, so when a potential customer smiles when ‘trying on’ an item, the technology will recognize that sentiment and display an on-screen prompt to urge the shopper to add the item to their cart.

“The release of our sentiment analysis technology closes the loop on personalizing the online shopping experience by using a consumer’s actual physical reaction to a product to gather data around preference and style,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “With the ability to gauge shoppers’ reaction to an item in real time, we can now mirror the in-store experience online by urging shoppers to make a purchase when we know they’re happy with a product or can recommend a different product when we know they’re dissatisfied. It’s a similar effect to the attentiveness of an in-store employee trying to persuade the customer to buy something they are trying on, except now it can be done digitally both at the point of purchase and through retargeting at a later time.”

Online retailers are able to further personalize the online shopping experience by customizing both the sentiment thresholds in the feature as well as the on-screen prompts to more accurately target customers and influence shopping behavior. Along with encouraging immediate purchase of an item a consumer reacts positively to, retailers can use the sentiment data to refine outbound marketing tactics such as email blasts and coupon codes to reflect the items the consumer was individually excited about.

“Our goal with the sentiment analysis technology is to make online shopping intelligent, and to empower retailers to better serve their consumers through smart data and innovative technologies,” said Gappelberg. “Retailers using this technology will be able to convert customers at a higher rate by having insights into what they like and what they don’t, and refining what’s marketed to them, creating the customized experience consumers desire to empower their purchasing decisions.”

Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programmed to be used across all commerce.

NexTech’s ‘full funnel’ end-to-end eCommerce solution for the AR industry includes offering 3D product capture, 3D ads for Facebook and Google, ‘Try it On’ technology for online apparel, 3D and 360 degree product views, and ‘one click buy.’ The platform is affordable, scalable, customizable, and most importantly, easy to integrate within an existing web interface, making NexTech one of the leaders in the rapidly growing AR industry, estimated to hit $120 billion by 2022, according to Statista.

NexTech Signs AR eCommerce Deal with Cheeterz® Firearm Accessories

April 25th, 2019 – New York, NY – Toronto, ON – NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Cheeterz Firearm Accessories to ARitize™ segments of its product line. Cheeterz manufactures and sells accessories and devices which make the shooting process easier, including the proprietary Cheeterz “Assisted Load Ammunition” system. NexTech AR will provide 3D product models to Cheeterz through its web AR eCommerce platform, with the goal to introduce augmented reality as a part of Cheeterz overall brand delivery.

“Cheeterz is excited to partner with NexTech AR in delivering unique and industry-leading experience to our clients,” said Richard Wessler, Chief Commercial Officer at Cheeterz Firearm Accessories. “Our goal is to leverage augmented reality technology to increase product and brand awareness in both the digital and physical retail spaces. We believe that the innovative spirit that has brought our organizations together will forge a trend-setting path for the industry, and we want to be the tip of the spear.”

NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce solution is a monthly software as a service (SaaS) software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis while being centrally hosted in the cloud. NexTech’s SaaS subscription platform enables retailers to transform 2D images into true 3D AR experiences. Utilizing simple embed coding, NexTech’s browser-based technology eliminates the gap online shoppers feel between themselves and the product, allowing them to effectively try or place the product in their home before they buy it.

NexTech will convert Cheeterz’s line of universal fit, single-use assisted load cartridges into high fidelity 3D AR product images to be used on product pages and in 3D ads. This includes the existing line of devices compatible with semi-automatic weapons as well as forthcoming device lines made for revolvers and sporting rifles, which will be available later this year. Customers who visit the Cheeterz online store or encounter an ad will be able to view the cartridges in full 3D with 360-degree rotation, and “place” the device in their space to understand the size and functionality before making a purchase.

“We are excited to sign up our second customer in the firearms industry in just two weeks and expect more customer sign-ups in the coming weeks,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “Our AR product images and rotation capabilities will enable buyers to fully examine and understand the product before they buy, similar to how they would experience in-store shopping. We’re excited to help Cheeterz provide its customers with a one-of-a-kind immersive eCommerce experience.”

Cheeterz Firearm Accessories was founded in 2017 by engineer and inventor Richard Roe to help people gain proficiency with their firearms by taking away the pain points associated with shooting. All Cheeterz devices are American-made in Des Arc, Arkansas.

NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce Platform Selected by Just Vertical to Provide Immersive Augmented Reality Online Shopping Experiences

April 23, 2019 – New York, NY – Toronto, ON – NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) today announced that it has signed a deal with Just Vertical, a hydroponic farming technology company, to provide augmented reality solutions to enhance the online shopping experience. Just Vertical will utilize NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce platform to create true 3D AR models of its AEVA hydroponic farming system, enabling consumers to ‘place’ it in their home before purchase to assure correct sizing and aesthetic appeal.

“Traditional agriculture is in dire need of disruption, as the current solutions on the market are not cutting it for consumers. We believe we’re on the path to changing that – our AEVA system has already helped to save more than two million liters of water, grown more than 10,000 pounds of fresh local food, and eliminated more than 100 million miles of food transport,” said Kevin Jakiela, co-founder of Just Vertical. “We chose NexTech to ARitize™ our AEVA system because we know it will provide a better level of education for our product and empower the consumer’s path to purchase as they shop on our website. We’re excited to provide our consumers an AR shopping experience like no other in the agricultural industry.”

Utilizing two lines of simple coding, NexTech’s browser-based technology eliminates the gap online shoppers feel between themselves and the product, allowing them to effectively try or place the product in their home before they buy it. Just Vertical’s customers will be able to view the AEVA farming system in high fidelity 3D, with full 360-degree rotation, as if they were walking directly around the item themselves.

“For retailers selling larger-sized items, like Just Vertical’s AEVA farming system, utilizing AR technologies to showcase the product online provides an edge that can push consumers toward purchase. Many are hesitant to purchase a large item online without seeing it first in their living space. Our ARitize™ eCommerce platform enables them to do just that,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “The selection of our ARitize™ eCommerce platform by yet another retailer not only highlights the demand for innovative AR technologies in the eCommerce space, but also validates the power of our industry-leading solutions as we continue to grow our customer-base.”
