App driven AR

Augmented Reality (AR) is a powerful engagement tool for retailers, especially in the home renovation and décor market. By combining visuals and enhanced interactivity, AR reinvents the way users interact with your product in the safety of their own home.

App based AR offers the flexibility to bring a selection of products into the same space, change colours and compare options. The success of Ikea ‘Place’ and Wayfair’s ‘View In a Room’ are testament to the popularity of this functionality.

Mobile devices are one of the most widely available distribution platforms. Gone are the days of clunky headsets and awkward QR codes – All that is now required is a simple download to a smart device.

This easily accessible technology gives companies an edge over their competition in today’s market.

AR is mainstream on your mobile

Augmented Reality is one step closer to integrating with our daily lives and Set Visions can take you there, virtually. With the release of the Apple ARKit 3.0 as standard on new Apple products, the flexible software improves the customer journey that is currently on offer.

Visualise, our interactive service, is mid way through converting one of our client’s CGI product files specifically for ecommerce. By uploading the files to compatible retail sites our client will be able to showcase their electronics in their customer’s home simply via their browser.

Appealing to shoppers contemplating those bulky high ticket items Set Visions white label AR app allows customers to test and visualise products in their home before committing to any price tag. The success of IKEA’s and Wayfair’s apps are a testament to the demand of the technology; streamlining the customer journey whilst building consumer confidence.

AR shopping app

These two interactive tools have immense potential - currently making waves in the car, education and navigation industry. This technology has been created to assist and improve our lives, with AI integration on the horizon we’re excited to see the benefits AR brings to us all.

Is Augmented Reality ecommerce ready?... We say: Yes.

There’s been a substantial shift over the past year from software app driven AR to hardware supported solutions. AR technology is now built into Apple and the big-name Android devices removing the requirement for expensive app development. Augmented reality files can now be embedded directly into a retailer’s product page just as any image or video. AR gives the shopper an in-home virtual reality experience without leaving the house avoiding a timely journey to the shops and the need for any specialist headset or hardware.

This in-browser augmented reality option is cheap and easy to implement. We simply create and optimize a 3D file in an AR format for you to upload onto your existing website. This allows the customer to engage with the product from the comfort of their armchair.

A brilliant by-product of this format is that 360 degree images appear on both new and older devices, including laptops and PCs for no extra effort. The product won’t have the full interactive AR benefits, but shoppers can still see a full 360 of the product.

If you’d like to find out more, please get in touch and we’d be more than happy to show you a demo and discuss opportunities.
