Nextech AR CEO Evan Gappelberg commented, “Our ARitize 3D offering is being widely accepted by both enterprise customers as well as Shopify merchants and Amazon which has led to strong foundational growth of our business in 3D models for ecommerce in the first half of 2022. A lot of the deals in the first half were to “test” 3D models and see how the integration between platforms work. Now that we have laid the foundation we are seeing strong re-orders and are expecting an acceleration of new customer contracts. Also our existing customers are now exiting the “test” phase which usually last 3-6 months and are now entering larger 12 month MRR contracts. We expect these existing customers’ re-orders and scaling up of global demand for everything 3D to drive our growth in Q3, Q4 and 2023 as the ecommerce industry demands shifts into high gear for Web 3.0 and emerging digital technologies. In anticipation of this rapidly growing demand we are ramping up our 3D modelling capabilities from thousands of models per month to tens of thousands of 3D models per month. We are also expanding our revenue potential through the expansion of our technology stack with the most recent launch of our ARitize Configurator.” He continues, “More and more companies and brands within the ecommerce ecosystem are recognizing the benefits and ROI of our ARitize 3D product offering. We firmly believe that the transition from flat 2D photos to 3D models is now in full swing and that 3D models are currently being established as the standard in e-commerce throughout the globe.”
These “test” contracts represent entry contracts with a limited number of SKUs so brands and businesses can test Nextech AR’s proprietary AI-powered 3D/AR eCommerce solutions. When the test’s are successful, 90% turn into larger deals which result in longer contract durations and increased revenue for the Company.
In the first half of 2022, the Company saw strong demand from ecommerce merchants both large and small to “test” 3D modeling deals, further continuing its rapid expansion and growth into Web 3.0 and creation of digital twins for eCommerce. These contracts include companies and brands with a variety of different product types from multiple industries, including furniture, home goods, sports equipment, art, lighting, petwear and more.
