The companies will combine the CGS TeamworkAR™ platform with Matterport’s industry leading digital twins to help customers train workers faster, increase productivity, and reduce costs
SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matterport, Inc. (Nasdaq: MTTR), the leading spatial data company driving the digital transformation of the built world, today announced a technology partnership with CGS, a global provider of applications, enterprise learning, and outsourcing services, to integrate Matterport digital twins in mixed reality environments to deliver augmented and virtual reality training and support solutions for front-line workers. The companies will collaborate to deliver breakthrough corporate training solutions using a completely digital approach powered by CGS’s TeamworkAR training solution and Matterport digital twins. The combined offering will enable large enterprises to train workforces remotely using an exact digital replica of the work environment in immersive 3D. The precision of the virtual experience allows companies to accelerate training procedures, improve the quality of training, while reducing travel and on-premise training costs.
CGS is an award-winning provider of custom learning and development solutions for dozens of Fortune 500 companies, including McDonald’s, Microsoft, Comcast, Toshiba, Medtronic and Maersk, and is also part of Meta’s exclusive Quest for Business (ISV) Program. The CGS TeamworkAR platform brings real-time digital transformation to onboarding, on-the-job training, learning and support for any company, anywhere. TeamworkAR uses Matterport and its SDKs and API to integrate and create custom content for its customers through AR and enables remote collaboration and virtual assistance for workers across skill levels. The solution helps move a workforce from a virtual training environment to a physical workplace in days rather than weeks or months, increasing productivity and allows their customers to reduce the costs of training-related travel.

This solution supports our customers in their digital transformation journey, which is now more critical than ever during a global workforce shortage.”

More than 100,000 businesses use the Matterport Digital Twin Platform to support their digital transformation initiatives. The company’s cloud solution for the enterprise provides the scalable, highly secure, collaboration and data management platform these customers require.
