Bob is an Architect. He's working with a distributed team but is constantly having to travel to meetings. He finds it difficult to explain ideas over the phone or by email because it is not as natural as pointing and sketching on a drawing in real life.
Bob’s problem is common place within the construction industry which is highly fragmented with many different consultants and contractors. Yet they all need to communicate and collaborate on projects. It's essential to their work. Because a large part of the work they do is highly visual it involves many face-to-face meetings to discuss sets of drawings together. Because this is very inefficient a large amount of time and money is wasted travelling to meetings or building sites. Therefore making those communications smoother is very valuable to them.
Woobius eye allows users to collaborate in a more natural way over drawings and images, without needing to meet in person. Users can communicate desktop-to-desktop, phone-to-desktop and phone-to-phone. Snap or upload a picture, draw on it using your mouse or your phone’s touch interface, and others will be able to see exactly what you mean, all in real-time. Everyone also has the ability to point and draw on the image simultaneously, allowing for two way communications or as we call it ‘visual chat’.
Now Bob has the ability to connect with his team to discuss ideas. He can point at and draw on a picture as if everyone was in the same room. With no sign up required and nothing to download (except for the free application for the touch phone), Bob is able to start his collaboration in seconds. This reduces the need for Bob to meet his team in person and saves him time and money. That explains why we are now working with some of the leading practices within the industry to refine the beta version of our product.
