Definetely when needing an image target based AR experience, I'd go with Vuforia Engine, the implementation is pretty straightforward (at least when using UNITY SDK), it is well documented and there are plenty of examples to start with. I wouldn't recommend it yet for tracking objects or environments if it is for commercial purposes, because it tends to fail from time to time from my experience.

Best suited for: - Team of remote support is a great visual way to address technical issues; Especially when talking about production environments. - Team of Project developers, a great tool to do tests remotely when multiple people from the customer need to connect, Vuforia Chalk support group calls and differentiates each person based on the color of annotations. Less suited for: - IT teams, which its support is mainly focused on SW issues.
