About Austech Connect

Austech Connect is Australia’s leading developer of web-based Augmented and Virtual Reality experiences, interactive digital technologies and 3D model creation.

We are proud to be a 100% Australian owned and operated company, based on the Gold Coast, employing local IT and creative talent.

Through Augmented Reality we can bring products, books, brochures, events, buildings and cities to life! In a world cluttered with promotions and advertising, this can help differentiate you from the competition and take your marketing and customer engagement to the next level.

Austech Connect’s vision is to make it easy for people and businesses to connect and engage in a memorable and enjoyable way. We combine technology, art and communications to deliver digital products and experiences that are unique, frictionless, simple to use and designed to help drive business sales.

Our Signature AR Experience product, BrandAR, starts with the user simply scanning a QR code with their phone. This action automatically opens up the AR experience in a web browser without the need to download any software, an App. There is also no need to fill in cumbersome forms or sign-up pages. The experience engages your customers, by communicating the value of your products and services in a new and exciting way and, in turn, increases sales conversion rates by interactively guiding them towards a sale through call-to-action buttons.

Our Virtual Conference product, Booth-AR, provides a solution to connect with customers, both existing and potential at virtual conferences and events world-wide. Imagine running a functional, 3D interactive Expo Booth for your business…without the need to travel, setup the booth, or staff it continuously for the duration of the event! With COVID changing the way events and conferences are hosted, and the move towards a hybrid of virtual/physical events, this product has proven to be very popular and its’ value is growing day by day.

Other products that we have developed are the high octane social media video service called Social3D. We combine traditional social mediia posts with 3D models to disrupt the social feed and provide massive engagement for your brand and drive sales. 

Moving towards the future, Austech Connect was recently rebranded from AustechVR. AustechVR started business in 2016 and was Australia’s largest supplier of Cardboard VR Headsets. A lot has changed since those early days and we have evolved to focus on new technology and accommodate the growing needs of our customers and the market.

We strive to continuously produce a quality product that provides the best solutions for our customers and business partners.
