In its ongoing effort to provide customer oriented software solutions based on the most advanced computer vision technologies, Dacuda is refocusing its product portfolio on their well known Productivity Solutions and divesting from its 3D division, which, according to unofficial reports, has been sold off to Magic Leap.

The customers of Dacuda are active in a broad area of high growth industries like Telecommunication, e-Banking, e-Government and Transportation, applying Dacuda software solutions to ‘read’ content in the most fastest way for further integration into a customer oriented end-to-end solution. Dacuda partners include well known players such as Sunrise, Crealogix, Unisys, and SITA.

We are excited about this update of our business strategy, as it allows us to refocus our activities for immediate customer benefit and expand our role as a long term partner for companies who are looking for efficiency and productivity gains”, says Michael Born, Founder of Dacuda.

As part of this recent refocusing effort, Dacuda has divested its 3D scanning assets. “The leading developments of Dacuda in this field have gained lots of attraction and we have chosen an American high technology company that is looking forward to leveraging our advancements in the 3D space”, says Dr. Peter Weigand, CEO of Dacuda.

The chosen company – according to multiple reports and the LinkedIn profile for Alexander Ilic, founder and longtime President and CTO of Dacuda – is Magic Leap. Ilic is now GM Switzerland & Senior Director SW Engineering at Magic Leap.
