Pro-ViewAR – Augmented Reality Solution
Supermarkets or large retail stores are massive mazes of stacked products. Customers could have difficulties navigating through them to find a specific product. While the customer has multiple choices at their disposal, they’re often confused about which product they wish to buy.
The customer needs specific product details – color, size, availability, price, ingredients, vegan / non-vegan, fat content, etc. – to make informed buying decisions, which increases revenue. If non-existent, a lack of information results in loss of sales.
This problem could arise at any place at any time. For instance, international customers visiting local stores may face language challenges while communicating with floor sales assistants. As a result, the customer doesn’t get the information.
Floor sales personnel are on the front lines supporting heavy inbound floor traffic. Their role becomes more important during peak seasons. Furthermore, ensuring they achieve a more significant customer satisfaction level, which requires extensive training on every product on the shelf.
With these multiple variables proving to be obstacles, retailers would have to invest in an Augmented Reality framework and applications that enhance product discoverability, improves customer satisfaction, and boost sales.
How does it work?
To improve retail sales and boost the in-store customer experience, Lumina Datamatics has created the Pro-ViewAR app, which provides many ways to enhance product discoverability. This includes:
- Customers can directly upload his/her shopping list, start the app’s Search Mode, and guide them to the location where the product is stacked.
- Customers can access complete store inventory through the app for product availability and place to reach that point. Search patterns are made customizable to their needs.
- In-store clients can point their mobile devices at a specific product to get detailed product information. This includes online/offline reviews, product ratings, as well as detailed product information.
- Pro-ViewAR’s cross-selling capabilities provide multiple options to improve the Omnichannel experience for enhancing customers’ buying decisions.
- Alternative available products for non-available products can be displayed, thereby ensuring a higher ROI.
- Retailers can incorporate In-store promotions and real-time product marketing, and personalized deals based on customer behavior into the app.
- Retailers will have access to a dashboard on the cloud for the backend management.
For the Retailer:
The retailer has a dashboard on the cloud to manage the complete backend.
