Unilever has utilised Remote AR to reduce downtime by 50%, while Lockheed Martin has managed to reduce training duration by 85%, as per figures revealed by Scope AR.

Scope AR has been able to raise $15.8 million in total capital.

This helps in solving operational problems with greater accuracy and agility than before. Gupta revealed that his company was upbeat regarding the prospects of product development and opportunities for growth provided by Scope AR, as it dealt with some of the most prominent enterprises worldwide.
