Visual Vocal announced its $3.6 million seed stage financing led by Eniac Ventures. The seed stage funding also includes investments from Scout Ventures, Spider Capital, and the Alliance of Angels, allowing the company to scale enterprise sales and continue to focus on building a transformative product.
Visual Vocal offers a cloud-based technology solution for enterprise level businesses to enhance meetings through 3D VR visualizations. Users are able to generate 3D files to create and drive immersive presentations, compare design trade-offs, and send or receive detailed annotations. Through Visual Vocal, key project stakeholders can join in-person or remotely, using a slim, lightweight smartphone accessory that folds-up pocket size when not in use.
“The winning ventures in VR and AR will be those companies that figure out how to solve core problems that exist across multiple industry verticals. Communication and collaboration tools for those who work in 3D is exactly that kind of critical need,” said Sarah Imbach of SIAN Ventures. “With early market validation and an incredible tech team, Visual Vocal is poised to be one such company.”
Visual Vocal’s mobile ‘VR Inbox’ unifies all spherical messages, meetings, and project updates into one place, and allows publishers to set permissions to manage a user’s level of participation based on their role in the project according to their team.
Their solution allows key design considerations and issues to be summarized, shared, and synced at any job site, office, or wherever is convenient, at any time. This new method of asynchronous communication allows stakeholders to make rapid decisions while keeping the whole team informed – whether across the office or across time zones – without the typical burdens of in-person meetings and conference calls.
“Thanks to an advanced cloud-based infrastructure, our technology can power ALL stages of communication: design-phase renderings of build options, construction-focused job site communication, and post-occupancy facilities documentation,” said Sean B House, Co-founder & CTO, Visual Vocal. “This platform-based approach offers the flexibility to power applications for any industry that lives and breathes 3D data.”
