Headquartered in Illinois, the company is a provider of AR-infused solutions. The customer’s major product is a platform that allows for building AR-based applications, launching AR-powered campaigns, as well as storing and managing the created content in the cloud.


The solution consists of two modes: end-user app and AR platform for building customer engaging campaigns.

The platform includes the following features:

  • AR markers recognition on scanning an image (marker-based AR)

  • Markerless experiences
  • Building complex 3D scenes with audio, video, buttons, 3D, and motion assets with no technical skills required
  • Allowing for creating personalized content
  • Supporting geolocation

  • Supporting analytics, for example allowing to monitor marketing-related and user-sensitive data, such as button click ratio

Under the project, the development team had to address the following issues:

  • The platform had to be technology provider agnostic in order to depend on no third-party services as well as generate no extra expenses on maintenance.
  • Marker recognition and AR scene display should perform smoothly. The markers should be securely locked to avoid flickering and be recognized stably in order to provide users with exceptional experience.
  • The platform under development needed to be highly scalable and endure high loads as well as ensure timely content delivery to the user.
  • The platform consists of multiple modules: back-end, front-end, iOS and Android mobile apps, third-party components. The developers had to ensure the interoperability of all modules.


To ensure future maintenance and support of the SDK, team at HQSoftware ensured that  third-party services are loosely coupled with the platform, and delivered custom middleware that would serve the purpose. The third-party services can be easily removed or replaced.

Working on module responsible for AR markers recognition, our engineers first conducted a research to find a framework that would suit the project’s needs. The AR framework was developed using Catchoom, and later Wikitude to recognize markers and add 3D objects into a 3D model. Thus, such an integration helped to avoid implementing two different frameworks for each of the modules under development. In addition, developers at HQSoftware integrated a Three.js-based AR scene editor XR Builder to manage and edit 3D objects.
