About Us

Scanning the world for millions of people

Bridging the gap between the real and the digital worlds

The team behind Catchoom Technologies is pretty amazing.
As a spin off of Telefonica R&D, we were incubated in one of the most innovative companies in the world.
We love what we do.
We aim to bring you the tools you need to create new digital experiences for your customers in the real world.
Catchoom is on a quest to deliver 10 billion interactions per year by 2025.
We’ve already performed more than 750 million to date.
Sure, Gartner voted us one of the coolest companies in 2013 and we have won some great awards but
we really just want to provide the best image recognition technology with the
easiest Augmented Reality (AR) tools on the planet, and that is what we have done with CraftAR.
We are also happy because we are based in sunny Barcelona. Come see us.
