The IMAGE 60 – Tour Track 2018

National Photography ServiceDo you have what it takes to shoot a high end assisted care center, a five-star hotel or an entire apartment complex? Are your friends, family and customers wooing over your photos and drone videos? Do you have your 107 drone certification with the FAA and are ready to monetize that by aligning yourself with a national drone service company? Are you a good communicator that can follow instructions? If you said yes to several of these, you are likely a perfect match for Real Tour Vision’s Tour Track team. Tour Track is a national photography service.

Those of you that are already on the team are likely to have already seen the increased chatter regarding RTV’s national accounts. You have also been receiving more jobs over the last couple of years than ever before from RTV. With a larger Tour Track sales staff here at our global headquarters, we have been securing an increasing number of national accounts. Nearly two thousand jobs were completed last year, and RTV’s job payouts remain some of the highest among Google Certified Photography Agencies. We are not only securing more accounts and teeing up more jobs for our Tour Track team, but we’re also once again taking strides to make the shoot and deliver process even easier for you. This year we are pleased to announce that we have brought on scheduling support for your Tour Track jobs which makes the job completion process SO MUCH EASIER!

We will be discussing all this and more on our up and coming Tour Track 2018 webinar. Please join Jason Stringham, Beth Nixon and Bobbi Joe Lawrence on Tuesday February 27th at 7:00 PM Eastern for a full one-hour discussion on what’s new with Google photos shoots, RTV’s T4 program and up and coming Tour Track shoots and processes. See you there team!

Fusion Experience HTML 5 & RTV News

Great news Real Tour Vision fans; the all new HTML 5 Fusion Experience virtual tour player is here. Say hello to this responsive, fast loading, incredibly attractive, versatile tour player launched by Real Tour Vision virtual tour software company at the end of last year. We are still programming in the finishing touches, but if you have not taken the new Fusion Experience player for a ‘spin’ you should give it a try. Those of you looking for a game changer this year, here it is! Jim Blue and I soft launched this here in Traverse City, MI via phones, tablets and desktop computers and the consensus is that our new Fusion Experience player is the nicest interface they had ever seen and used. Your customers are in for a techy treat!

The team worked very hard last year to take both of our Flash-based interactive virtual tour players and convert them to HTML 5. We have done that and added several improvements along the way. As of right now you can deliver your virtual tour URL’s in HTML 5 to your customers right from your RTV Tour Manager. Watch this video message from Jason LaVanture, RTV’s Co-Founder and VP – https://youtu.be/dadYhjLaxpQ

Take a look at some of these virtual tour productions on display in Fusion Experience –

We are very excited for you to make use of the advanced features that Fusion Experience brings to the table such as custom themes and loader screens without enduring the slower load times that are associated with the Flash version. When it comes to HTML 5 virtual tour players, we are ahead of the curve and leading the way!
