SightSpace View is a mobile presentation tool that enables a church to convey 3D digital designs of a proposed new building or a renovation to congregants. Church leaders can use SightSpace View to effectively communicate the details of a new facility or the current construction status of a project in order to drive engagement.
SightSpace View is a free plugin for Trimble SketchUp, and it works with a free companion mobile app. The companion mobile app is automatically downloaded from Apple iTunes or Google Play for Android whenever the 2D barcode (called a QR Code) is scanned. The mobile app is compatible with Apple and Android phones and tablets to reach the largest audience possible.
A fellowship member can gain access to the 3D design any time, from any location simply by scanning a code with his or her smartphone. The code can be presented on a website or in promotional materials, enabling any member with a mobile device to interact with the presentation.
Church leadership can upload a 3D SketchUp design to the SightSpace View service, with numerous options available for the display of the design in the mobile app. After options are selected, the View service delivers the unique QR code for distribution.
The SightSpace View service is free for the congregation users of the mobile app. A monthly fee is charged to the leadership who uploads the model. One model is $29 per month for up to 5,000 views with discounts for quarterly, biannual and annual subscriptions. Pricing is on a per-model basis.
SightSpace View can also be used as an essential component of the digital church. In addition to the mobile component, churches can elect to utilize their own messaging and graphics in place of the standard View application for an additional fee ($3,000$7,500, dependent upon the platform chosen). This personalized messaging enables churches to leverage mobile without investing in expensive software development resources.
SightSpace View is an ideal way to visually engage congregation members and enable them to experience proposed construction plans. By digitally connecting with a mobile audience, ministries can move beyond the walls of the church to facilitate communication.
