Following the delivery by Vection of an interactive Augmented Reality (AR) experience for Volvo’s Italian world-wide presentation of the E.V.A. initiative, Volvo and Vection plan to continue the utilisation of Vection’s proprietary Virtual Reality (VR) technologies to market and create new and interactive consumer experiences to appeal to a greater number of potential customers.

Gianmarco Biagi, managing director of ServTech, says, “The Framework Agreement with Volvo is the first agreement executed by Vection among a number of ongoing negotiations, and forms part of the Company’s broader global partnership strategy aimed at positioning Vection as the leading VR software provider for Tier1 companies. Furthermore, this close collaboration with Volvo cements Vection’s positioning in the automotive industry, supporting Volvo in its growth & development strategy. Our first engagement under the Framework Agreement commences immediately.”

“The Framework Agreement with Volvo validates ServTech’s strategic acquisition of Vection and its entry in the growing VR & AR software market segments. The adoption by Volvo of Vection’s VR technology is critical in the Company’s positioning in the automotive industry and provides the Company with significant global exposure,” according to Bert Mondello, chairman of ServTech.

Vection’s first engagement under the Framework Agreement will see Vection develop an AR marketing solution to showcase Volvo’s Occupant Protection and Safety Equipment. This includes crucial automotive systems such as car safety cells and airbags systems.
