Augmented reality for ecommerce
Revolutionising the online shopping experience
The retail industry is fast evolving to meet customers’ changing needs, with augmented reality (AR) presenting a new and powerful way to respond to these new demands.
We’re helping retailers to take their customers on this new digital buying journey by providing industry-leading advanced plug and play AR technology, designed for the current generation of smartphones and offering easy, fast integration into legacy ecommerce systems. This is made possible by our partnership with Capita Scaling Partner and AR experience company London Dynamics.

For retailers, it means increased conversion, lower costs, exposure to newer market segments and an opportunity to gain valuable insights into their customers’ minds.
We also offer a unique combination of augmented reality and conversational AI to create a more impactful solution which uses natural language to help online shoppers to find the right product online and then see it live in their own environment using their smartphones.

Fast facts about the present and future of online shopping
A realistic shopping experience from the comfort of the customer’s home
Our Capita Scaling Partner, Augmented Reality experience company London Dynamics, provides cutting edge plug and play AR software, allowing online shoppers to view a product from any angle they want, in their own living space. Using the camera on a smart phone, and without the need for other apps or special features, customers can decide, for example, if the colour of a coffee table matches their living room armchair, or see what every part of a luxury watch looks like up close.
Who is London Dynamics?
Developed by the people who designed and delivered IKEA Place - one of the most downloaded AR-enabled apps of all time - London Dynamics was set up to help businesses introduce an advanced, realistic and functional AR experience from their existing websites.
Advanced AR – how the customer experience works
The customer can rotate the coffee table – or whatever product they’re considering - through 360 degrees and greatly magnify it to see fine detail. And while there are other AR products available, this is the first that replicates the look of complex material, shadow, texture and reflections to show what a product actually looks like in real life.
Cutting the hassle factor of large purchases – for retailer and customer
As the advanced AR technology provides customers with a more realistic feel for what a product is actually like, they’re less likely to return it. This helps cut the hassle, cost and waste associated with returns – particularly those big-ticket items - and also means fewer lost sales for the retailer.
