Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality were considered as something novel and fun for a long time. Most of the products utilizing these technologies were launched in entertainment industries and only small percentage of startup were targeting enterprise customers by bringing new opportunities to them.
However, recent expansion of these technologies supported by Apple with it’s iOS 11 and ARKit platform along with ARCore technology made by Google brought AR support into pockets of millions people.Now AR is about to disrupt the way customers interact with devices and especially with online and offline stores as it gives a lot more opportunities to engage with a product before making a purchase. So AR is not about fun any more, it is about increasing the revenue, expanding the audience and delighting customers.
Augmented Reality Platforms
One of the platforms we use to build Augmented Reality ecommerce applications is ARKit. This framework was introduced by Apple with iOS 11 release and made a revolution with AR usage all over the world. With us you can build a powerful iOS mobile application to expand commerce business with new features and introduce new way of how customers can place orders on your website.
ARCore framework is used to build Android mobile applications and has almost identical set of features while using different approach to modeling and pose detection. There are a lot of advantages of ARCore platform over ARKit but what really matters is that now it is possible to develop Visual Commerce solution that provides consistent User Experience for both iPhone and Android users.
