With five commercial offices spanning almost 5,000 square feet, Global Geosystems wanted to share their facilities with visitors, first starting with their space in Bilbao.
The company is a leader in the distribution of new and used surveying equipment and is the largest distributor of these tools in Spain. Their modern rental park is home to state-of-the-art technology, and they boast a network of highly qualified technical services certified by Leica Geosystems.
Since Global Geosystems is already a distributor of Matterport technology, the choice was clear when it came time to select the best equipment for the project. The team quickly got to work capturing their Bilbao office, and are now leveraging the tour as a powerful marketing asset across their online channels.
We caught up with CEO Carlos Mosquera to learn more about their process and Global Geosystems’ plans for the future, as well as what the technology may mean for the real estate industry as we look ahead.
Q: How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted you?
COVID-19 has caused a slight slowdown in our sales and rentals, as expected, but we’ve been able to recover quickly. Fortunately for us, some sectors, such as construction, never stop. We’ve even added people to our team.
Q: What inspired the 3D capture of the Global Geosystems Bilbao Office?
Well, we have one of the best decorated and most striking offices in Spain. Not doing the virtual tour with Matterport would have been a mistake on our part.
Q: What’s the one thing you want visitors to take away after exploring your 3D tour?
Primarily, that we distribute this technology. That’s our main goal. Matterport technology has yet to heavily penetrate the market in Spain and Portugal, and we want to educate customers about the power of 3D scanning.
We believe that many of them are not aware of how much it can help their business by increasing their visits, sales and positive reviews. We also think that there is a revolution coming in the real estate industry, and that the first to use this technology will be the ones that make a real difference and increase their growth.
Q: Do you have any future plans for creating more 3D tours?
We have five fantastic offices, so we're going to start by scanning them all. We are populating our company profile on Google Maps with photos taken directly on the Matterport Pro2 and from the tour itself, which is generating a lot of curiosity from users.
We would also like to reach an agreement with other entities and institutions to make interesting tours with Matterport and spread this great technology throughout Spain and Portugal. Hopefully, this project will help us in the expansion of this product.
Q: Anything else you would like to add?
We’re proud to now be one of the only two official distributors that Matterport has in Spain and we hope to contribute to the expansion of this technology, as we’ve already done with other brands such as Leica Geosystems.
We’d like to thank Matterport for the invitation to talk about our 3D tour on their blog. We also want to highlight the 3D tour of our headquarters, and we invite you all to visit us — while keeping a safe distance, of course!
