Augmented reality for retail

Augmented reality & retail or how to reconcile on and offline? Over the past 20 years, the retail world has metamorphosed, and the customer experience has diversified. Smart shoppers expect technologies to optimize their shopping experience and reduce their costs. How can you place your physical point of sale and printed materials in the trend towards digitalization of distribution channels and the omni-channel customer journey? Market leading retailers such as Decathlon, Boulanger, Pandora and BUT have chosen augmented reality to bridge the physical and digital worlds!

The printed catalog, like the JouéClub! catalog, becomes a sales acceleration channel when it is expanded, on each page, with innovative interactions such as the wishlist that allows you to share a gift list with your friends and family. And to further accelerate drive-to-web, JouéClub! also offers its customers the opportunity to experience the interactive catalog in a reader accessible on the smartphone’s web browser.

Retailers, create more traffic to your physical stores and website by offering more services through your printed documents

AR can help retailers deal with the new expectations of their consumers by weaving the tangible and digital worlds together.

Business owners with physical stores need to use traditional marketing tools to attract their clientele, such as their window display, product packaging, customer service, catalogs and promotional flyers. Consumers love those tools, but they also turn to digital more often by ordering online, comparing prices on multiple websites or asking for people’s input on a given product on forums.

With augmented reality, retailers can respond to those new user behaviors by guiding their consumers from the moment they discover the product until they finalize the sale, in store or online.
