NexTech enters agreement with LA Police to provide Augmented Reality e-Commerce solution

In Augmented Reality News

August 27, 2019 – NexTech AR Solutions has today announced that it has entered into an agreement with LA Police (LAPG). Founded in 2001 by police officers, LA Police Gear is an e-Commerce website for police, military and tactical gear. Nextech will be providing with its augmented reality e-Commerce solution for an initial nine products.

“We are excited to be working with such a great group of professionals at LA Police Gear and making augmented reality part of their customers online shopping experience.” Commented Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech AR Solutions. He added, “Our SaaS customer list continues to grow as our AR e-Commerce solution continues to add tremendous value to the online shopping experience for a vast array of e-Commerce businesses”.

“When LAPG first got contacted by Nextech AR we were immediately excited by the prospect of 3D-AR online shopping.” Said Mark Hedman, CEO of LAPG. “ The largest barrier that online retailers run into is the customer not being able to touch and feel the product. With this technology, it gives our customers as close to a ‘retail’ experience as they can get without being  in a store. With our customers, they need to make sure that what they are buying is going to work as often times their life is going to depend on it. With Nextech’s AR technology integrated on our website they will now be able to see if something is the right size, has the right features and will work for their load out, which is great.”

This is the second such agreement that NexTech has signed this month, with the company entering into an agreement earlier in August with Alpine Innovative Research Inc., an air purification company to the Cannabis industry. Both agreements are part of NexTech’s wider efforts to expand its AR offering to businesses as the company pursues the e-Commerce, education, and entertainment AR verticals.
