(ORANGE PARK, FL) — A new agreement with a Michigan-based company will allow an Orange Park-based technology services company to offer virtual tours via the Internet.
Orange Park-based Seventhman was recently granted exclusive dealer rights by Traverse City, Mich.-based Real Tour Vision to offer virtual tours to customers in Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties. The new agreement has also led Seventhman to add two new members to its staff to market and develop the virtual tours.
“Virtual tours leverage the power of the Internet to showcase properties, facilities, products and communities online using an interactive format,” said Shaleen Shah, president of Seventhman. “We are excited about the opportunity to offer such a high quality product in our array of services. This is a logical next step for us.”
Darryl Herring, a former Navy photographic production manager, will head up Seventhman’s Real Tour division. Seventhman also hired Tim Vaughan as a sales manager for the division.
Long a part of the online real estate industry, virtual tours can be used to showcase homes for sale, apartments for rent, new communities under development and resorts and hotels.
Seventhman will use Real Tour Vision 360-degree Panoramic Virtual Tour technology to produce the virtual tours, which can also be e-mailed or placed on disk because of their portability. The tours act as a mini-commercial that can also include audio and banner ads or your company logo.
“We have the ability to present so much more information with these tours that it’s incredible,” Shah said. “And, because of the advanced technology provided through our partnership with Real Tour Vision, we will be able to develop tours without fish-eye or photo distortion.”
Launched in January 2002, Seventhman is a division of Draven Enterprises. The Orange Park-based technology services company is devoted to developing custom software solutions for small-to-medium sized businesses. It also offers customized training for companies seeking to use cutting-edge Internet technology and desktop publishing solutions.
