State and federal agencies are set to gain new digital twin products, under a new partnership between digital twin developer Matterport and Arcadus, a digital solutions provider for the public sector. 

Under the collaboration, the companies are expanding the Matterport Digital Twin Platform to service federal, state and local agencies.

Matterport defines itself as a spatial data company “driving the digital transformation of the built world.” The company first entered the public sector in 2021 with its Matterport for Government platform, designed to digitize U.S. government facilities and infrastructure, such as water supplies, electrical grids and tunnels, as well as assets such as airplanes, ships and submarines.

Using the platform, agencies can create realistic, interactive 3D models of assets in a federally-compliant cloud and remotely manage operations. 

With the new agreement, Arcadus will become the first reseller of Matterport’s digital twin platform for the public sector, offering the company’s three core solutions in Property Marketing, Design & Construction and Facilities Management. 

Arcadus will facilitate the platform’s integration with government systems, enabling “seamless engagement” with public sector agencies, contractors, and integrators.

“As a company dedicated to the 3D spatial data and digital modeling space, Arcadus looks forward to bringing Matterport’s products and solutions to agencies and other regulated organizations,” said Javan Clark, Arcadus’ founder. “Matterport’s hardware and software are incredibly easy to use, and Arcadus is committed to maintaining that same experience in the acquisition and support of these 3D digital twin capabilities.”

“As organizations continue to embrace the value of Matterport, the public sector remains a significant opportunity for growth,” said Jay Remley, Matterport’s chief revenue officer. “Our partnership with Arcadus adds more powder to our efforts to drive progress and excellence across the U.S. public sector, empowering federal, state, and local agencies to revolutionize how they assess, manage and optimize their spaces with our federally compliant digital twin platform."
