TOTVS Partners With Aurasma to Light up Their Campaign, “Share the New World”
CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Aurasma, the world’s leading augmented reality platform, today announced that TOTVS, the largest software company in Latin America, is integrating Aurasma into their “Share the New World” campaign to create a unique, engaging user experience.
“Share the New World” is a campaign designed to stimulate collaboration and build worldwide relationships. By downloading Aurasma Lite on a smart phone or tablet and pointing the device at the TOTVS logo anywhere in the world, the static image immediately “lights up” and plays the campaign video. Users may also contribute to this campaign by creating their own “auras”- user-generated content, that can be shared with others. Connecting individuals through shared “auras” further stimulates global relationships, collaboration and business ideas all of which are core principles of this campaign.
As a pioneer blazing the trail, TOTVS is excited to be the first company to launch this innovative, marketing campaign in Latin America. “We are the first company in Latin America to use this augmented reality technology, developed by British company, Autonomy. This tool collaborates with our marketing campaign for the current year, which has ‘Share the New World’ as its core motto. Anyone may have access to our videos just by pointing the cell phone, for example, towards a logo of the company, where it may be. It is a fast and modern way to integrate and share knowledge,” commented Marcelo dos Santos, Marketing Director at TOTVS.
Since Aurasma’s interactive platform does not depend on QR codes or tags, TOTVS has the flexibility to swap out the virtual content at any given time without altering their logo. In a world in which people are intrigued by fresh ideas, if TOTVS decides to replace their video with 3D animation, an interactive game or a new video campaign, the change can happen instantly. As a company that encourages a shared new world, TOTVS has opened the door to boundless possibilities.
