Simulating a Car Valuation process on a mobile app was indeed one of the most challenging task at hand for us. Driven by goals such as reducing monotonicity, correct gamification, right aesthetics & great user experience, Root16 Interactive’s work has made it happen! Their professionalism & dedication to this product is evident from the fact that how smoothly this project was executed. As envisioned, this application has helped us improving our training process & gather much required valuable user data from the app. Thanks so much for doing a great job!

It was really a good experience working with Root16 Interactive. Considering VR is at its early adoption stage, Root16’s expertise in this domain from development point of view was really handy to mitigate possible issues in project right from the inception stage. They are dedicated and extremely professionals, who delivered our project within the planned timelines without any compromise in the quality of work. During Tata VR project, we found Root16 as a reliable partner and decided to collaborate again in future for all of our interactive project.
