promise of ENGAGE running on Apple products. This means we have now built and deployed versions of the platform for use on most mobile phones and tablets.

sales and development in that region. We have had strong demand in the US and Asia with more than 50 deals signed this year, and today’s announcement removes the last technical barriers to our business developers when talking to clients 9who
might not have access to VR equipment.
