NEW YORK and TORONTO – NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Alpine Innovative Research Inc., a leading air purification company to the Cannabis industry. Alpine Innovative Research Inc. uses advanced technology and components from around the world, but the design and manufacture of the product happens in Calgary, Alberta. Cannabis grow and processing rooms are plagued by pathogens such as mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses. Alpine Innovative Research Inc. sells technologically advanced air filtration products which protect and purify grows for many years to come.
“NexTech and Alpine Innovative Research Inc. are engaged in exploring and leveraging the various benefits of augmented reality for its clean-air products especially for the Cannabis industry. Focusing on the Air Sniper Ultra, NexTech will be creating and adapting its webAR and AR University platform to facilitate product demonstrations and create a mobile sales tool for Alpine Innovative Research Inc. staff to carry with them wherever they go,” comments Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech AR Solutions.
“As a company focused on providing innovative products to the industry, we saw AR as an opportunity to assist in setting Air Sniper further apart from competitors,” says Stuart Henley, President of Alpine Innovative Research. “We wanted to use AR to generate a better understanding of our premium product offering and we believe the use of NexTech’s AR will greatly assist in communicating to our customers how Air Sniper equipment integrates into their facility. We see AR as a tool to elevate our client experience and to quickly become an industry leader.”
Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programed to be used for eCommerce or for education in the medical device market.
