The cooperation will enable PPI to utilize WakingApp's ENTiTi platform to create VR and AR content that pairs with its popular toys, adding interactive digital content to its physical creations and creating more engaging experiences for its customers.
"The rising popularity of mobile devices and gaming with children of all ages has companies on the lookout for the right way to digitize their products to keep users engaged and sales strong," said Isaias Miremberg, PPI Worldwide owner. "Now that we have the ability to easily create and update new AR or VR content with ENTiTi Creator, it will be a game changer for PPI as we add a new dimension to our customers' promotions."
PPI has worked with some of the biggest fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) brands such as Coca-Cola, Unilever and Nestlé for the last 30 years. They have sold more than 4,000,000,000 premiums, including their own popular brands such as Gogo's Crazy Bones, Wikkeez Disney, Abatons Star Wars, and Kaptors. PPI identified the ENTiTi platform as the best solution for allowing its team to create VR and AR content due to its innovative cloud-based offerings that enable quick creation and instant updates without having to wait for app stores or outside vendors.
"The goal of every manufacturer and agency is to increase engagement with products and build stronger brands," said Alon Melchner, founder and president of WakingApp. "Virtual and augmented reality show great promise as a powerful method of engaging customers. By helping PPI expand their reach into the digital realm, across all of the latest devices, the ENTiTi platform is positioning PPI and its customers as industry innovators."
