I would like to personally thank all my clients and business associates for providing us with their references and testimonies. If it were not for your believe in the things that I do none of this would have been possible. It is and has been a privilege for me to have worked with you!
I am thrilled to recommend Mr Gerald Ferreira and his team at “Mixed Reality” for augmented reality and virtual reality work. Gerald and his team were recently contracted through our advertising agency, Assegai and Javelin, to deliver an augmented reality project for Dube TradePort. This was executed within a very short time for a critical event hosted on the 12th September 2019.
The Dube TradePort APP that was designed and created for this event consists of augmented reality experiences, interactive maps as well as several 360 tours of our facilities. Augmented Reality is a challenging and increasingly competitive field of technology which is growing in popularity very quickly, however it is also a risky space where capability and technical expertise is difficult to measure and quantify. In addition, it is something that requires a level of after sales support.
From the outset, Gerald proved himself as highly knowledgeable, reliable and technically experienced in the field of AR and VR and we were not only impressed by the past projects he demonstrated but also by recommendations he brought to the table specifically for our project. We have been especially impressed by his commitment and after sales service and support after the project was delivered and he has continued to remained reliable for after delivery service.
With that said, I am highly confident in my recommendation of Mr Gerald Ferreira for Augmented Reality projects without reservation.
