PORTLAND, Ore.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Streem, the award-winning and simple-to-use remote video communication platform, announced today the release of its first software development kits (SDKs). The technology allows product teams, developers and customer experience (CX) groups to easily customize and launch enterprise-grade augmented reality (AR) applications and interactive remote collaboration tools. Streem’s robust SDKs will allow leading brands to now easily create a new wave of cross-platform (iOS, Android, Web) AR-driven solutions for the home.
“With the release of the Streem SDKs, leading brands now have access to powerful tools to easily and more quickly create customized AR and AI solutions that will allow them to better communicate with and support their customers,” said Ryan Fink, co-founder and president of Streem, a Frontdoor (NASDAQ:FTDR) company. “Businesses can integrate Streem’s remote collaboration and data capture features into existing apps and systems, and leverage LiDAR meshes to capture exceptionally accurate, patented, remote measurements. Our mission at Streem is to make the world’s expertise more accessible, and our SDKs allow us to do this while also helping businesses simplify life for consumers.”
The Streem platform is currently featured in Apple’s Augmented Reality Guide for Business on Apple.com as an ideal use case for AR tools and technology in business. The piece highlights the value that AR can bring to a range of industries by enabling new customer connections, revenue growth, more efficient workflows and communication, and more. Streem’s platform is being leveraged by innovative brands including Lowe’s, Best Buy, Traeger, American Home Shield, CLEAResult and more to create solutions for their own teams.
With Streem, leading retailers and service professionals – from technicians and contractors to real estate agents and more – can easily integrate AR- and AI-solutions into existing tools and workflows, allowing them to engage with customers remotely and collect data that will allow them to more quickly and accurately address the customers’ needs. Along with diagnosing breakdowns and making repairs remotely, Streem’s capabilities enable service providers to accurately capture dimensions, serial and model numbers and other important contextual information, all through the camera and without ever stepping foot inside the home.
