There are plenty of success stories for the use of AR (such as Sephora) and 3D product configurators (such as Ikea) in ecommerce. However, for many brands there’s a perceived level of complexity that prohibits interest turning into action and prototypes. As the technology platforms improve their capabilities, we wanted to explore the implications for ecommerce businesses.
In this ecommerce podcast, James Gurd and Paul Rogers interview Beck Besecker, Founder and CEO of the Enterprise 3D Cloud Platform Marxent. Beck shares his insights on what’s driving the use of AR and 3D product configurators, explaining some of the use cases and how the technology enables a fast route to market by automating as much of the process as possible.
