South Africa Pivo Distributors

I just wanted to say thank you for the great introduction to PIVO. It's been such a great experience with the software and the device itself. It's so easy to use and understand, very user friendly. Your demonstration was great as well, it was easy to understand and you really marketed it perfectly, not only showing how it will help with our business but also how else the device or software can be used for so many other things. Our clients are also happy with the outcome of the tours of their properties as well as our agents. Once again thank you so much for everything. You've also always been available when I'm needing questions to be answered.

How to Create a Pivo Account

In Pivo Tour, you have access to your Pivo Account information and can also make a Contact Profile for viewers of your tour to contact you by. You can access your account information in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Here, you'll see two tabs:

Pivo_Contact.png

1. Contact Profile: This will be the public account viewers of your tours will have access to. Here you can update your:

  1. Profile picture
  2. Name
  3. Email address
  4. Contact phone number
  5. Facebook page
  6. LinkedIn page
  7. Description about you (i.e. what you do, where you work, who you are: be creative!)

2. Manage Account: This is your Pivo Account. You can edit your account information here. This account can be used to access all Pivo applications.

You can start creating a Pivo Tour directly from the main page in the Pivo Tour application at any time.

 

1. Press the Create Tour icon tour_red_2x.png at the bottom of the main page

6. Move to the next point

7. Repeat steps 4, 5 and 6 until you have captured the whole space. We recommend capturing the entire floor in a single session

Move-spot.png

Once you finish capturing, you can Review each point. Here you can delete a point or retake it. To retake a point that you’ve just taken, simply press retake and then the + button on the Remote Control. To retake a previous point, simply follow the map back to that point and retake it in the same place.

 

Once you have captured each point, you can proceed to the next page. Here you can:

View-point.png

  1. View each point (by pressing on the image)
  2. Name each point (by pressing on unnamed__2_.png)

Press Next at the bottom of the page when done.

 

Note: Do not move or touch your Pivo set-up when it is capturing a tour to ensure for a seamless capture of the space. You can move around the smartphone while your Pivo is capturing to always stay out of frame.

The editing tool in the Pivo Tour app is the best way to customize your tours so that they are informative and eye-catching. You can edit your Tours in the Draft, Private and Public pages.

Throughout the editing process, you can save your progress with the Save button save.png in the top right corner of the page.

 

1. Edit thumbnail

The first part of your tour that you can customize is the thumbnail. Here, press edit thumbnail to choose from the following options:

  • Choose from scenes in tour
  • Take photo
  • Choose from library

Tip: If you are taking a photo or choosing a photo from your library, a panorama picture will fit best in the thumbnail.

 

2. Capture

The second part of your tour you can edit are the points within the tour. You can use this option to re-capture a room that wasn’t captured properly, or has had some pieces of furniture or decorations added to it.

 

Note: this option is only available when your tour is still in drafts. We will soon be bringing the option to add new capture points to your tour draft.

 

3. Review
