10 Reasons Matterport will acquire GeoCV DanSmigrod 13 10 daysDanSmigrod (18948): Hi All, Here's an update on the lawsuit as of Thursday, 8 August 2019: ✓ Lawsuit: Matterport, Inc. versus GeoCV, Inc. - All Legal Documents Best, Dan
Zillow 3D Home Versus Ricoh Tours Versus Matterport: Must Read @cnitschke1 DanSmigrod 1 11 daysDanSmigrod (18948): Hi All, WGAN New Member @cnitschke1 wrote – a must read – post today about Zillow 3D Home Versus Ricoh Tours Versus Matterport 3D Tours in this WGAN Forum discussion: ✓ "Zillow Is Buying And Selling Lots Of Homes; It's Almost Half Its Business" The post is super-insightful. I encourage you to read it and continue the discussion there. Best, Dan P.S. Thanks SO much to @cnitschke1 !!! (!!!!)
Will Matterport Offer a Smartphone Capture Solution? DanSmigrod 4 19 daysDanSmigrod (18948): Hi All, I could imagine that Matterport is under an NDA with Apple so that Matterport would be among the first to do deep integration with the iPhone's laser-based 3D camera. I could imagine this could be the Matterport Pro3 3D Camera for all the reasons described above. Your thoughts? Dan
TechCrunch: Matterport Raising Another (Big-Big-Big) Round of Funding DanSmigrod 3 2 monthsDanSmigrod (18948): @rzphotoman Ha! How long does it take to get an answer from WGAN Members? Hi All, It's been four months since Matterport announced that it raised an additional $48 million in venture funding (bringing the total to $114 million). I'm surprised that an acquisition has not yet been announced. Best, Dan
Matterport + Meero + VRBO/HomeAway = Exponential Growth DanSmigrod 3 2 monthsDanSmigrod (18948): Hi All, A related WGAN Forum discussion: ✓ Slides from HomeAway/VRB0 Webinar for Property Managers Today 12 June 2019 Dan
Matterport Survey: a Wolf in Sheep's Clothing? DanSmigrod 13 4 monthsmori (708): @Metroplex360 - for USA that maybe true, but then they should stop doing business in europe if they are not able to deliver GDPR/DSVGO confirm services. Here I just can totally confirm @MeshImages and for most other european MSP´s it´s very very similar situation. 90% of big projects requests stop at the clients´s legal department. Hope you all have more success with Matterport, but due to their latest behaviours I will stop using...
Video: Why Shoot Zillow 3D Home (360º Tours) Today-Today-Today DanSmigrod 6 4 monthsHome3D (1079): No comparison there. MP and GeoCV are comparable (without GeoCV’s astounding Outdoor view) so I price these similar. Zillow 3D home and NodalView (which looks better and can include aerial panos) are both fast to shoot, so I use them as an argument that all listings should now include a “walkthrough” experience. If a client asks me for just HDR stills, I include Zillow or NodalView without charge. I’m committed to changing the agent...
Matterport Shoots Itself in the Foot with Matterport Service Providers DanSmigrod 6 5 monthsrko1 (79): I totally agree, we have built and maintain a great business. We have 6 Matterports and our business has grown, and continues to grow. We work hard in promoting our services and our very strong pricing. In the 3 years we have been providing Matterport service we have completed over 1900 scans. NOTHING COMPETES WITH HARD WORK.
Matterport + All 360º Cameras = Exponential Growth (for all of us) DanSmigrod 14 5 monthsDanSmigrod (18948): Seems like a good time to revisit this topic
Why Matterport's addition $48,000,000 in funding is fantastic news for MSPs DanSmigrod 1 5 monthsDanSmigrod (18948): Hi All, Three reasons why Matterport's additional $48 million in funding is fantastic news for Matterport Service Providers: 1. Acquisitions – I could imagine Matterport scaling via acquisitions such as GeoCV, RoOomy and other services that add huge value to the Matterport ecosystem 2. Marketing to Homeowners Likely to Sell Their Home – I could imagine Matterport – finally – creating demand for Matterport 3D Tour by marketing...
Is Matterport a Service Company or is Matterport a Software Company? DanSmigrod 4 6 monthsDanSmigrod (18948): @nirbetan Must buy today ... The Wall Street Tour, Tuesday, 6 March 2019, page B1 | " Property Listings Get Virtual Fix-Ups" All about how and why the data that Matterport Service Providers capture will be invaluable. Dan
How Matterport can - and must - scale exponentially DanSmigrod 4 6 monthsWingman (490): As for convincing vendors to use virtual tours it was my first idea how to sell Matterport tours. I was going to drive around to every local property advertised for sale and drop some flyers into their letterboxes explaining of all benefits of using a virtual tour. However at this point we do not want to piss off all local agents by going to their customers behind their backs until they say "no" to virtual tours. Some of them are...
Should Matterport be in the Business of Buying Scans from MSPs? DanSmigrod 9 6 monthsMetroplex360 (9200): I lost sight of this a few months ago. If Matterport sells multi-family scans for $300 for 5 tours and then charges hosting fees, you can create a compelling argument that the client will pay more over time. I posted a LONG time ago that stated that if you want to compete with this sort of pricing, one might consider offering a low cost of entry to clients with hosting contracts that make up the difference. If you run a business and have...
I was only off by 2 years predicting this ... DanSmigrod 2 7 monthsHome3D (1079): Great focus on one line of the announcement. Yes, that is the future and it's not a zero-sum game. There's room for all of us and many more going forward, as long as we lean into the wave.
Imagine one company ordering 20,000+ Matterport 3D Tours DanSmigrod 3 8 monthsDanSmigrod (18948): @VTLV I do want to keep the company and industry confidential. That said, I will play "20 Questions" once: it is not Subway, McDonalds or Burger King. The outreach by [redacted] is an on-going use case; plus, we all would be super-excited to see this company move forward with this use case. We would all say, "Yes! Finally a major company that understands the potential for Matterport to: 1) Make a company money 2) Save a...
Question of the Day: What does it mean that Matterport now has a new CEO? DanSmigrod 8 8 monthsVTLV (1762): We get a new CEO announced in other news sources and nothing from the company in my email this week. Not feeling very hopeful about this one. What ever remarks he's made about the current tour inventory clearly support what the shareholders want back for returns. Returns they're not getting after 5 years of investing from Camera and hosting fees.
Has this happened to you? Will this happen to you? DanSmigrod 3 10 monthsMetroplex360 (9200): No one is safe from the coming apocalypse...

How Matterport can sell more Matterport cameras, processing and hosting DanSmigrod 4 11 monthsChemistrydoc (947): @DanSmigrod I would enjoy nothing more! Feature all demographics, but especially older millenials, who will be the ones to derive the most use / benefit from MP. End user marketing is generally very effective. KF
Why Hexagon will buy Matterport DanSmigrod 15 1 yearDanSmigrod (18948): Either I am wrong about my prediction. Or, just wrong on the timing. Dan

Matterport Exponential Growth powered by It's APIs/SDKs DanSmigrod 2 2 yearshtimsabbub23 (759): They just went from a dieing blackberry company to ever expanding and growing apple iPhone company, in a simple comparison..... For all you young bucks look up the word crack berry. Lmao
A "Must Read" WGAN Forum Discussion DanSmigrod 1 2 yearsDanSmigrod (18948): Hi All, While you may not be interested in this discussion (and related video) - based on its title .... ✓ $49 for OBJ File Thank You Matterport ... it is a "must read" WGAN Forum Discussion because the discussions cover many additional topics that are important to anyone that owns - or is thinking about buying - a Matterport Camera.

An Amazing Magic Carpet Ride of Matterport DanSmigrod 4 2 yearsDanSmigrod (18948): @LetMe3D Thank you for your super-kind note. I could imagine Matterport offering a Pro non-branded white-label version (when other companies show the way...) They could make more money and the Pro community would be happy. Yes. The We Get Around Network Forum - is a Community - eager to give/get help. Thanks for acknowledging that and for being part of the giving/getting help. Best, Dan
Matterport to explode (in a good way) DanSmigrod 15 2 yearsDanSmigrod (18948): Hi All, WGAN-TV Live at 5 (pm ET Today, 12 September 2017) discussion about Matterport Content Distribution (formerly known as Matterport Syndication Beta).

Matterport Cloud to Support Other Cameras? DanSmigrod 19 2 yearsDanSmigrod (18948): @Metroplex360 Yes! Exciting to see Matterport doing this alliance ... Dan
How Matterport Can Sell More Pro2 3D Cameras DanSmigrod 15 2 yearsmori (708): Great discussion and topics. I still think MP should honor the (very) early adaptors and buyers of a Pro1 with a very very special upgrade deal, so these ones can also benefit from the new Pro2.
Does Matterport have a conflict of interest? DanSmigrod 4 2 yearsDanSmigrod (18948): Hi All, A related We Get Around Network Forum discussion: ✓ Matterport now pricing their own 3Dscan cost Dan
Matterport Competing with Matterport Pros? DanSmigrod 22 2 yearsDanSmigrod (18948): Hi All, Please see related discussion today (18 July 2017) .... ✓ Matterport now pricing their own 3Dscan cost Dan
Preparing Matterport for IPO or Acquisition DanSmigrod 8 2 yearsVTLV (1762): @DanSmigrod - You hit the nail on the head of where was Matterport is at and where have they come since the beginning. In there, I think the CEO is having issues moving inventory as they try to create better quality and hang onto his job with investors waiting for a return at years 3-5 on their investment. Most right offs happen in the first five years before failing or hiding growth into costs of doing business. It's obvious, that our hosting...
Matterport Shoots Itself in the Foot (Again) DanSmigrod 12 3 yearsJonJ (1528): @3dshowcaseuk, What you are asking is completely doable. This is exactly how one of the companies that outsources work via the WGA network operates. They create unique credentials and the MSP sourced, logs into their capture app with those credentials, scans the property and uploads it to the contracting companies account. The MSP is not responsible for processing fees, but can log into the my.matterport.com account to verify the scan and...
Matterport to add 5,000 Camera Sales People? DanSmigrod 5 3 yearsInvelop (121): Invelop would gladly sub for Matterport, as would I'm sure WGA, Metroplex, RenderingSpace, WP3D, etc. How many times have we been undercut and still take pride in our work and our businesses? I don't understand why someone at MP does not see the massive force they already have in place. All it would take is someone with half a brain that says - well damn, we're in California dude, why are we hiring people? Do you have any idea what that costs?...
Sweet Deal: Matterport Equity for Influence DanSmigrod 4 3 yearsStevenHattan (1510): Well, whatever happens, happens. I will continue to grow my business everyday and add relevant services that make sense. I'm going to hit 300 models later this month so I hope all this hard work pays off eventually.
Project Tango News and Commentary DanSmigrod 23 3 yearssmcclell (155): It was perhaps a bit dramatic a comment i made that could be read as foreboding, with a coming doom haha. I agree with you..i did not mean this will replace MP. If anything, with matterport already experimenting with tango it could open up some exciting complimentary options. Lets hope so!
