Shepherd leads way to 360 VR commercial property viewing

Shepherd leads way to 360 VR commercial property viewing

Shepherd Chartered Surveyors is leading the way in the use of 360 VR (Virtual Reality) commercial property viewing.

The market-leading early adopter has become the first commercial property agent in Scotland to deploy the pioneering technology which removes the hassle from property viewings by allowing clients to explore a range of properties in 360 VR at their leisure.

Steve Barnett, managing partner at Shepherd, said: “360 VR technology brings property viewing into the 21st Century, revolutionising the way properties are viewed and taking client service to unprecedented levels by enabling clients to tour our extensive commercial property portfolio from their own chosen device and at their leisure, 24/7, 365 days a year.

“As a firm, we manage around 1500 commercial properties across the country at any one time. Scalable, accessible and affordable, the easy to use platform enables us to promote our properties throughout the length and breadth of Scotland with the click of a button.

“As such, I am convinced that the use of this 360 VR technology will soon become commonplace across the Scottish commercial property marketplace.”

Akash Chopra, managing director at MiDigs, at the forefront of bringing 360 VR technology to the property market, said: “We are delighted to be working with such an energetic, partner led practice as Shepherd.

“Our spherical tours capture 100% of the viewing field to ensure a more intimate, immersive end-user experience when viewing properties. The technology has full social media functionality, ensuring that Shepherd’s clients can explore, share and enjoy 360 VR tours on their chosen social media platforms at the click of a button.

“The technology comes with real scalability and Shepherd is already deploying it throughout its commercial property office network across Scotland.”

Shepherd is a national surveying business providing clients with many decades of experience and expertise, together with national resources and comprehensive local market knowledge.
