In August, the Polish start-up accelerator acquired shares of the German company MadeInPoint - the authors of MadeInHolo, an innovative solution in the field of work in augmented reality. The investment is not only a very important step for Kogifi Consulting Group, one that will allow the enterprise to enter the markets of the German-speaking countries, but it also means adding the considerably prospective AR and VR technologies the group’s portfolio. As a result of merging the knowledge bases of both companies’ specialists, it has been already possible to develop a solution fortransferring objects to augmented reality in just two hours.
MadeInPoint GmbH specialises in consultancy services related to the SharePoint platform and Office 365. It is the German company that created the MadeInHolo brand - a team of specialists working on AR (Augmented Reality) and VR (Virtual Reality) technologies. InAugust, 30 per cent of MadeInPoint shares were acquired by the Polish start-up accelerator Kogifi Consulting Group in a cross-border transaction.

The transaction will make it significantly easier for Kogifi to gain new clients on the German-speaking markets and enable the company to provide professional consultancy services with respect to the SharePoint marketwhile allowing MadeInPoint to broaden its range of services by adding technologies such as Adobe, Sitecore, and Salesforce to the portfolio. What’s particularly important to Kogifi is the shares in solutions delivered under the MadeInHolo brand, which is considerably ahead of its rivals as far as works on AR/VR are concerned. We see a big potential in the technologies developed by MadeInHolo, for instance,those consisting in building remote work support systems, service support, Saas platform development, or remote learning – says Tomasz Gibas, President of Kogifi. The existing solutions and future projects are intended to contribute to achieving Kogifi Consulting Group’s key goal, which is the delivery of e-commerce services based on artificial intelligence systems.
From reality to AR in 2 hours
