Companies are looking to set their brand apart from stiff competition with key technological differentiators and emerging technologies. Several industries such as retail, healthcare and entertainment are heavily relying on Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) as ways to create affinity towards brand, build long-lasting customer relationships, and transform strategies and experiences for brands.AR app development services are all set to redefine the way we work, interact with technology and with each other.
