August 1, 2019 – Atheer Inc. has today announced the acquisition of San Francisco-based digital work platform Flype Inc.

Atheer stated that the acquisition accelerates the development of its Augmented Reality Management Platform by combining the company’s existing real-time collaboration capabilities with the intelligent digital work and integration capabilities of the Flype platform.

“We are seeing an accelerating adoption of AR by enterprises across many industries and business processes. These organizations are demanding AR platforms that have enterprise grade security and user permission management, robust digital asset management across all their content stores, intelligent and dynamic work instructions on all devices, broad integration capabilities to other enterprise systems, and robust reporting and analytics,” said Amar Dhaliwal, Chief Executive Officer of Atheer.

“With Flype, we have acquired an enterprise grade digital work platform that significantly extends our capabilities in all these areas. The combination of Atheer and Flype redefines what enterprises can expect from an AR platform.”

Founded in San Francisco, California, Flype’s digital work platform securely connects users with the digital assets, work instructions, and resources they need to do their work.

“The foundation of the Flype platform is the ability to truly understand users, assess their needs in real time, understand spatial conditions and deliver highly contextual content to create personalized AR experience at scale. We are thrilled that Atheer and its customers will be taking advantage of these capabilities,” said Nag Chandrashekar, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Flype.

Flype’s founders Sanjay Parmar and Nag Chandrashekar have joined Atheer’s leadership team as Chief Technology Officer and Chief Product Officer, respectively.

Financial terms of the Flype acquisition were not disclosed.
