What is RICOH360 Tours?
If you are a PRO 360 Photographer or just starting 360 photography, you will love this feature once it’s fully developed.
Launched by RICOH Company Ltd, RICOH360 Tours is the virtual staging software for creating 360-degree virtual tours using artificial intelligence.
This cloud-based AI virtual staging software comes with amazing features for creating stunning virtual tours that potential customers can view remotely without the need to visit your property.
Using your PC or iOS/Android smartphone, RICOH360 makes most 360-degree images of vacant rooms and automatically arranges 3D furniture using artificial intelligence.
This groundbreaking AI technology will not only help you sell your property faster but will also help visitors envision themselves living in a home.
How the AI-Driven Virtual Staging Works
All you need is an active subscription to the RICOH360 software and a PC or iOS/Android smartphone to create a stunning virtual tour. Ensure you have plenty of high-quality images of your property to upload because the number is not restricted.
Once RICOH360 Tours has completed the automatic virtual staging process, add more information about the property: location, number of bedrooms, price, your contact information, etc. You can also share the virtual tour via e-mail and embed it on your website.
Another exciting Call to Action (CTA) feature is a form that requests visitors to fill in their contact information before viewing your property online. This is an exceptional way to generate leads and increase your email subscriptions.

Key Takeaway of AI-Driven Virtual Staging by RICOH360
RICOH360 Tours allows you to virtual stage a property in an average of 10 to 60 minutes, which considerably cuts costs and saves time.
TALLBOX’s Says: Being currently in Beta, the Ricoh Virtual Staging is not good for PRO 360 Photographers and users with high expectations in the 360 photography business. We are going to keep an eye on the development and will update as soon as there is some progress on the AI virtual staging topic.
