Apple has billed ARKit as a means to turn millions of iPhones and iPads into augmented reality devices. The refrain is similar for Kaon Interactive, a developer of product catalog apps for businesses.

Kaon’s High Velocity Marketing Platform powers product catalog apps for companies like IBM, Oracle, GE, and Dell, among others. The platform serves highly-detailed 3D models for sales representatives to display to potential customers. And, when you deal in large, industrial equipment that does not exactly fit in the back of a BMW (or a Hyundai, depending on the success of the salesperson), such a visual tool can be invaluable.

“When we use innovative platforms to connect with prospects and customers on an emotional level, we transcend traditional marketing and sales relationships, resulting in customers who are passionate about what our solutions will do for them,” said Gavin Finn, president & CEO of Kaon Interactive, in a statement.

Kaon Interactive, the leading provider of 3D marketing and sales applications for global B2B brands, today announced that its augmented reality (AR) solution, Kaon AR®, is now available on over 340 million Apple devices.

Deployed on the Kaon High Velocity Marketing Platform®, Kaon AR allows customers to make more reliable buying decisions by placing photo-realistic, interactive, 3D product models ‘at scale’ within a real physical space, seeing how the product works to solve their business or technical challenges. Users can explore differentiated value messages, run product animations and interact with the digital product.

“The Apple ARKit has made authentic, dimensionally-accurate AR available to a mass audience,” said Joshua Smith, CTO and Founder of Kaon Interactive. “People have been trying to do camera-based AR for years, and Apple has finally proven it can work.”

Kaon Interactive has a 20-year head start on other AR technology providers, because of its extensive B2B global customer base (such as Cisco, IBM, GE, Siemens, HPE, Abbott, BD) that have been deploying photo-realistic, 3D digital product models for sales and marketing purposes for years. With the addition of Kaon AR to the High Velocity Marketing Platform in February, existing customers’ 3D product models can be viewed in augmented reality on AR-enabled Apple devices.

“When we use innovative platforms to connect with prospects and customers on an emotional level, we transcend the traditional marketing and sales relationships resulting in customers who are passionate about what our solutions will do for them,” remarked Gavin Finn, President & CEO of Kaon Interactive. “Apple iOS 11 is a game changer for AR in the enterprise. It is facilitating immersive experiences for B2B marketers on their existing mobile devices, amplifying their customers’ receptiveness to key value propositions across the entire customer lifecycle.”
