Dubai-based developer Deyaar is teaming up with tech giant Microsoft to redefine its customer experience with a virtual-tour application.

The company said it will use Microsoft’s cloud solutions, cyber security products, and business intelligence capabilities to optimise costs and spearhead innovation across operations and processes.

Both companies will work together to develop a virtual-tour application using Microsoft’s mixed-reality HoloLens device, create a turnkey datacentre modernisation project, and transform Deyaar’s business model through additional services, a statement said.

It added that Microsoft HoloLens will enable Deyaar to showcase its range of properties to potential customers by placing them inside a mixed-reality environment. The technology superimposes virtual elements onto the real world, allowing customers to see the physical environment around them with digital additions grafted on top, via an advanced headset device, enabling the company to scale across geographies without having to depend on physical proximity to its customers.

“Deyaar aims to deliver high-quality real estate developments and differentiated services through return on investment for stakeholders and value for customers – and technology is at the core of this,” said Saeed Al Qatami, CEO, Deyaar.

“Digital transformation is about empowering businesses and customers to achieve more. This starts by reimagining what’s possible and choosing the right technology partner to bring it to life,” added Bobby Morrison, vice president and head of Worldwide Digital Transformation, Microsoft Corporation.

Microsoft and Deyaar have further teamed up on the delivery of cyber security, while they are also in the final stages of a turnkey datacentre modernisation project for Deyaar’s hospitality division, which is launching later this year.
