Personalizing the Shopping Experience 

Combining real-time, 3D rendering with augmented reality (AR) allows the customer to experience to see how a product will fit in their environment before committing to a purchase. This deepens customer investment in the product by creating a sense of ownership.

Leveraging this unique ecommerce experience sets you apart from competitors by displaying a commitment to customer satisfaction in the initial engagement phase.


Reducing Business Costs

With the consumer able to make an aesthetic decision before investment, they're less likely to return an item, reducing business costs associated with that workstream.

Retailers can also reduce costs associated with inventory management, as 3D rendering mimics most of the in-store experience. Customers are able to easily and rapidly narrow their selections online, reducing the need to carry increased stock for the sales floor.

Additionally, costs associated with product photography are reduced. Only a few reference photos are necessary to create a 3D rendered image. A rendering can realistically show the product in different lighting and environments, as well as with a variety of customization options.

Optimizing Efficiency with Real-Time Rendering

Reducing load times is a crucial factor in providing a seamless shopping experience for online customers. Slow-loading pages can lead to frustration and abandonment, resulting in lost sales opportunities.

Threekit's visualization solutions include 3D rendering that works with a codeless configuration engine that seamlessly integrates with your website. This means an ecommerce website has fewer large-scale items to load before displaying, reducing the time between accessing your website and seeing the content on it.

By optimizing load times, you can ensure that customers quickly and easily access product pages, browse through various options and make informed purchasing decisions. This not only improves customer satisfaction but also increases the likelihood of conversions and repeat purchases.
