Matterport needs to be more competitive with emerging platforms like Immoviewer
I am concerned with the capabilities of competing services that are offered by Immoviewer and GEO CV. Here are a few highlights of their platforms:
-Their 3D content can be directly embedded (natively) into Facebook. Matterport has promised this for well over a year!
-You can embed pictures and youtube videos directly into the hotspots (better implementation than matterport where you are limited to text only or a link to images/video in a new browser window). Theirs is a multimedia popup.
-The ability to force viewer to input contact information at certain points in the tour for lead collection.
-Immoviewer just finalized a deal with california association of realtors. Matterport still needs to ink deals with content aggregators such zillow and truly to increase visibility of their platform.
-If matterport is going to charge a premium for their hardware and cloud hosting, they need to offer premium capabilities that justify the costs.
