LONDON — Matterport, Inc., the leading spatial data company driving the digital transformation of the built world, today announced that it has expanded the capabilities of Matterport Capture Services™, an online services platform that delivers a convenient turnkey solution for enterprises that need to digitise tens of thousands of real estate assets globally, simultaneously and with speed. Now available in over 270 cities worldwide, Capture Services has been adopted by large-scale real estate companies including Savills, Colliers International, Cushman & Wakefield, and ERA Singapore Partners.
Matterport Capture Services is designed to dramatically reduce the complexity, time and cost of large enterprises to bring their spaces online. The platform seamlessly connects enterprise customers to thousands of Matterport Capture Technicians across the globe, professionally trained to deliver high-quality 3D digital twins at scale. These Technicians are a click away from expertly capturing a variety of spaces including commercial offices, retail spaces, multi-family residential units, hotel complexes, multi-story buildings, large corporate or industrial campuses and more.
Matterport Capture Services capabilities now include:
- A user-friendly online scheduling and job management service that deploys Capture Technicians on-demand to digitise any number of spaces, from anywhere with a simple point-and-click interface.
- Expansive coverage capabilities in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.

“With Matterport Capture Services, we are able to digitise more spaces for our clients with greater speed, efficiency, and quality,” said Natalie Cariola, Chief Sales Officer at Zumper, a leading online home and apartment rental platform. “Matterport's immersive 3D virtual tours are invaluable for leasing teams. In fact, listings that include 3D tours increase engagement by more than 300%.”
Matterport Capture Services experienced significant growth in 2020 with over 50 million square feet captured. As a result, the company is deepening its investment to help enterprises turn their large portfolio of properties into a library of dimensionally accurate digital twins. By eliminating the barriers to bringing thousands of spaces online at a time, Matterport is accelerating the digital transformation of the built world.
“Our enterprise customers understand that digitising their properties can help them increase efficiency and utilisation across buildings,” said Brendan Dowdle, General Manager, Matterport Capture Services. “We’ve combined our global ecosystem of highly experienced Capture Technicians with an innovative suite of new online tools and services to manage the entire process globally, shortening the path to bringing all of their buildings online. This is the just the beginning of our larger strategy to offer anyone the opportunity to acquire digital twins of their spaces and realise their full potential.”
According to a report from Deloitte, digital twins have become essential to not only designing, building, operating, managing and promoting a property, but to improving the experiences of the people who inhabit them. More than physical, high-value assets, they are environments where we live and work. By bringing them online, companies can more efficiently assess how everything functions within these spaces, determine more sustainable solutions, and optimise systems like air quality, temperature control and more to enhance our way of life. In a separate report, Accenture has named digital twins one of the top technology trends of 2021.
