SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Matterport, Inc., the leading spatial data company driving the digital transformation of the built world, today began the rollout of Matterport Capture Services™ On-Demand in twelve major U.S. cities. As simple as ordering an Uber, customers within a 35-mile radius of New York, Newark, Philadelphia, Miami, Los Angeles, Irvine, Riverside, San Diego, San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose and Sacramento can instantly schedule a highly-trained Matterport Capture Technician to digitize any commercial, residential or unique space, such as a yacht or aircraft. Once captured, the space is transformed into an immersive and precise 3D digital twin and delivered to the customer’s account to access, manage and share the space more effectively than ever before.
In February 2021, Matterport announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to enter into a business combination with Gores Holdings VI (NASDAQ: GHVI, GHVIU, and GHVIW), a special purpose acquisition company sponsored by an affiliate of The Gores Group, LLC, that will result in Matterport becoming a publicly listed company. Upon closing of the proposed business combination, the combined company will be named “Matterport, Inc.” and intends to remain listed on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol “MTTR.”
Capture Services On-Demand democratizes access to Matterport's groundbreaking 3D scanning technology by offering individuals, small businesses and companies a fast, simple and cost-effective way to digitize spaces. In just a few clicks, customers can schedule a capture appointment with the company’s network of vetted, trusted, and highly experienced Capture Technicians equipped with a Matterport Pro2 camera. Over five million spaces by more than 330,000 subscribers in 150+ countries have been captured to date. Thousands of spaces have already been captured with Capture Services On-Demand including co-working locations, construction sites, vacation rentals and retail shops.
Customers can expect to connect with Capture Technicians like Carlos Hernandez who has captured over 2,200 spaces over the last six years in the Southern California region. “We’ve served customers across several industries and Matterport has become essential to keeping their operations running. With an accurate digital twin, they are accomplishing many of the things they do in a physical space from anywhere, on any device, powering a new generation of virtual collaboration. For example, we’ve seen real estate agents share photorealistic 3D experiences of their listings to speed up transactions; construction customers accelerate decision making by sending digital twin updates to stakeholders; and schools provide students and parents an engaging way to understand what to expect for reopening.”
Capture Services On-Demand is a simple online order experience saving customers the time to find, research, and establish relationships with 3D photographers themselves. Customers can login to their account and choose the date and time to book their capture appointment; pricing is based on the property size and location and charged at the time of ordering. Once the capture is completed and the space is processed, a precise Matterport digital twin of the space is then delivered into the customers’ account for immediate use.
“Capture Services On-Demand is the perfect solution for customers who want or need to digitize any home, property or space quickly, and still want to receive the highest quality results,” said RJ Pittman, CEO of Matterport. “Customers can immediately connect with our Capture Technicians who take enormous pride in providing the highest quality of service. These are the same Matterport experts who capture large and complex spaces for our most prominent enterprise customers on a recurring basis so new customers can feel confident in their skill, professionalism and output.”
The addition of this on-demand service complements the enterprise offering Matterport announced last month which delivers a convenient turnkey solution for large companies that need to convert tens of thousands of real estate assets into digital twins globally, simultaneously and with speed. Capture Services for the Enterprise is designed to dramatically reduce the complexity, time and cost for these companies to digitize their portfolio of properties at scale.
Hundreds of thousands of customers are rapidly bringing buildings and spaces online. Just last week, Matterport reported that the number of Matterport digital twins created has more than doubled since May 2020, surging past five million spaces under management since the company’s inception 10 years ago. Over 15 billion square feet of space, more than five times the size of all the buildings in New York City, have been transformed into Matterport digital twins. With highly-skilled Capture Technicians available on-demand to anyone, obtaining a digital twin is now effortless, which only serves to fuel growth of the company’s subscriber base and spaces under management.
