Acquisition will accelerate continued innovation and development of company’s WorkLink platform
San Francisco, CA – December 11, 2019 – Scope AR, the pioneer of enterprise-class augmented reality (AR) solutions, today announced its acquisition of WakingApp, an AR technology company based in Tel Aviv, Israel. With this acquisition, six of the founding members of the WakingApp team will remain with the company and bring additional resources and expertise for developing the next generation of Scope AR’s augmented reality knowledge platform, WorkLink.
“We’re extremely pleased with the growth we’ve seen to date of enterprises adopting AR,” said Scott Montgomerie, CEO and co-founder of Scope AR. “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.”
WakingApp has a proprietary AR platform with technologies to help enterprises across industries easily create cutting-edge AR experiences. The acquisition of WakingApp by Scope AR expands the company’s resources to more rapidly deliver new functionality to its WorkLink solution and push the boundaries of what’s possible in enterprise AR as the market continues to mature. WorkLink is the industry’s only industrial AR knowledge platform to provide real-time remote assistance and access to pre-built AR work instructions simultaneously in one application to allow workers to easily access the knowledge they need.
“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,” said Matan Libis, CEO of WakingApp.
“We have a long history of supporting the most cutting-edge devices so our customers can take full advantage of AR’s most effective tools as soon as they hit the market,” said Scott Montgomerie, co-founder and CEO of Scope AR. “The HoloLens 2 represents the next generation of mixed reality hardware and we look forward to helping enterprise organizations drive even more impact through their use of AR.”
With support for Microsoft HoloLens 2, WorkLink users can explore even more complex, hands-free use cases as a result of the device’s improved wearability, expanded field of view, and enhanced gesture control and eye tracking. Now, enterprise workers can perform longer maintenance, repair or manufacturing procedures and conduct industrial tasks that require more precise hand control and interactivity.
As a long-standing Mixed Reality Partner, Scope AR today also announced its status as a Microsoft mixed reality distributor-managed partner (DMP), making it an authorized HoloLens reseller. Additionally, the company now integrates with the Azure Active Directory and its WorkLink platform is available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace as a software solution optimized to run on Azure. Scope AR’s expanded partnership with Microsoft makes it even easier for enterprise organizations to not only find AR solutions that fit their use case needs, but also implement those solutions on supported hardware in a more seamless manner to start benefiting from the value AR can deliver immediately.
