Residential Systems has received an early CEDIA Expo 2022 sneak peek preview from Ken Brueck, co-founder of Modus VR. Modus VR provides virtual reality (VR) design software for integrators and their partners. The company is set to launch its new Residential Modus-as-a-Service (MaaS) for integrators and manufacturers at CEDIA.
According to the company, Modus-as-a-Service is the industry’s first-ever live VR design session-based service where Modus VR Specialists do all the work for you.
“Developed from the custom installation community’s real-world feedback, MaaS is our new, concierge-level service that harnesses the full functionality and speed of the award-winning Modus VR software on a convenient per-project basis — without the need for VR hardware,” says Brueck.
Clients and integrators can join a live MaaS session via video call and watch their project come to life, collaborate in real time, and potentially reduce weeks of back and forth into a single session. Decisions are made faster, and clients have greater confidence than ever before. The design sessions, typically held over Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or other well-known meeting software, result in shorter sales cycles, ease of alignment on complex projects, better technology solutions, and bring that “Wow” factor to clients as they can see the full project vision in real time.
Here’s how it works: Have a fast project design need, or unsure about how a specific technology will work in a room? The Modus VR team will do it for you. An MaaS engagement typically involves four simple steps:
- Project overview: The Modus VR team receives project plans and builds the project visualization.
- First live design session. The integrator and Modus VR team review the project, discuss concerns and alternate approaches, adjust the design, and ensure it’s ready for presentation to the clients.
- Second live design session. The clients join the integrator and Modus VR team — from anywhere in the world. The integrator leads the discussion while the MaaS team makes changes on the fly according to client feedback. Because the client can see the finished project, and adjustments can be made in real time, one session is usually all it takes to get everyone aligned.
- Deliverables. After the MaaS sessions are complete, the Modus VR team can provide compelling 3D renders, URLs to 360s to share among partners, family members, and more, a bill of materials (BoM), and line drawings. Modus VR can even brand the drawings for with your logo.
“We’re excited to show our brand-new service at CEDIA 2022,” adds Brueck. “It will be immediately available to all existing Modus VR integrators and manufacturer partners. The service also allows any interested industry parties to dip their toe in the water with Modus VR, without any investment other than the project info to get started.”
