On May 26, Get in the Ring Munich – Workforce Technologies culminated in the dealmaking day. A strong line-up of 14 German startups ready to make physical work safer, healthier, and more productive came together to test and scale their solutions with leading corporates, investors and governments. Following extensive deliberations, the jury was most impressed by how AR-Experts are able to leverage the huge potential of augmented reality (AR) by untangling the technological complexities of AR and providing a simple to use, but efficient solution.
AR-Experts provide augmented reality solutions for industrial use. Their GIRI app allows users to quickly create “on-site” AR content, thus tackling content creation which is one of the main challenges which slows the implementation of AR systems across a company’s operations.
Solution: AR represents an immediate boost in a company’s operations: worker training, manufacturing, maintenance, do-it-yourself instructions, and field service operations. AR-Experts’ software enables companies to create AR-based user-generated content in simple to understand and fast manner.
