Shorya Mahajan, Co-Founder of Adloid says ,“AR experiences are the way forward for brands to create personalized memorable experiences for their customers. AR is going to disrupt ecommerce across all sectors. We at Adloid believe AR is particularly going to completely revolutionize how customers buy automobiles, home decor, eyewear, makeup, jewelry and other fashion products. Around 77.3% of ecommerce customers abandon carts, most of them do it because they are not convinced about the product. AR can alleviate this doubt by letting customers try the merchandise before they buy from the increasingly ubiquitous mobile phones. At Adloid, we have found that add to cart rates can improve from 10% to 25% with the use of AR, which is a huge win for both retailers and their end customers. AR allows companies to offer 3D product visualizations, virtual showroom and try at home experiences at the click of a button. We only expect to see this trend increase with more and more retailers embracing the technology. “
AR is a real game-changer and it's changing how people communicate and interact. Its impact across an array of different fields is likely to expand as the technology matures and develops, especially in the area of customer experience.
