SUNNYVALE, California, Tuesday, 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.
