Enterprise-class augmented reality (AR) solutions company Scope AR said on 12 December that it had acquired WakingApp, an AR technology company based in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Six of the founding members of the WakingApp team are expected to remain with the company, and to bring additional resources and expertise to the development of the next generation of Scope AR’s augmented reality knowledge platform, WorkLink.
WakingApp currently has a proprietary AR platform with technologies intended to help enterprises across industries easily create cutting-edge AR experiences. According to Scope AR, the acquisition will expand the company’s resources to bring “new functionality” to WorkLink and “pish the boundaries of what’s possible in enterprise AR as the market continues to mature.
“We’re extremely pleased with the growth we’ve seen to date of enterprises adopting AR,” Scott Montgomerie, CEO and co-founder of Scope AR, said in a statement. “With that growth comes more knowledge of what our customers need to successfully build AR into their business.”
“The WakingApp team brings a great mix of AR development experience and creative thinking to Scope AR as we continue to evolve our WorkLink platform to meet our customers’ current and future needs,” he added.
“We are thrilled to join the Scope AR team and become an integral part in the delivery of first-class AR solutions to enterprise organizations,” Matan Libis, CEO of WakingApp, said.
