Vancouver, BC – Toronto, ON
NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (CSE: NTAR) (OTC: NEXCF) (FSE:N29) is pleased to announce that it has officially launched its patent pending web enabled AR ecommerce platform and signed an integration deal with ParcelPal Technologies (CSE:PKG) (OTC:PTNYF). With over 600 merchants signed up for their platform ParcelPal Technologies is Canada’s premier on-demand delivery service. With NexTech’s official launch of its AR eCommerce platform and ParcelPal’s integration of AR into its rapidly scaling eCommerce platform both companies are uniquely positioned to take advantage of the major opportunity presented by AR in eCommerce.
As part of the AR eCommerce integration with ParcelPal, NexTech will be creating custom dashboards using its xAPI analytics which enables the tracking of micro-behaviors throughout the AR experience creating a valuable sea of data for ParcelPal and their merchant eCommerce sites. With the xAPI and AR-3D shopping experiences integrated on the ParcelPal site, both companies gain a very valuable marketing tool and differentiating technology which has been shown to generate the highest conversions, click through, dwell time and sales, providing a valuable roadmap for both companies. The xAPI will be used in conjunction with IBM Watson integration to enhance ongoing AI and AR product development by NexTech.
“We are excited to work with ParcelPal, a market leader in the fast growing on-demand delivery service industry. With integration of our AR eCommerce on their platform all their merchants will be able to offer 3D-AR product viewing leading to higher conversion rates and sales giving ParcelPal and their partners a real edge against the competition in the on-demand delivery marketplace” comments Evan Gappelberg CEO of NexTech. He continues, “with today’s AR eCommerce platform launch we are now in the market signing up a growing list of customers, exciting times are here”.
President and CEO Kelly Abbott stated, “After spending significant time with the NexTech team we realized that including Augmented Reality in our eCommerce app and soon-to-be launched website we will give both NexTech & ParcelPal a significant edge in the eCommerce space resulting in a differentiated offering that doesn’t exist currently for our merchant partners and their consumers.”
