Nextech AR CEO Evan Gappelberg commented, “Over the past several years, eCommerce sales have sky-rocketed on Shopify and Amazon. Customers are shopping more online and making more purchases online than ever before in new categories like furniture due to 3D models and AR. In my opinion, it is only a matter of time before all brands and businesses will need to shift and embrace new 3D modelling technologies to gain an edge over the competition. Brands must invest in 3D models, or they will risk being left behind by their competitors.” He continues, “We are seeing strong momentum in our business and are working with the largest ecomm Prime Marketplace as well as others who have a very large appetite for 3D models. We have what I believe is the highest-quality AI-powered 3D modelling and configuration technology that’s now available on Shopify which is another major ecommerce merchant platform.”
ARitize Configurator allows eCommerce sites to display multiple product variations from only one 3D model, which is all that’s needed to lay the groundwork for an extended product portfolio. With a single 3D model acting as the base, the Company’s technology has made it easy to swap and display all product options and customizations. Customers have the ability to interchange colors, parts, materials and textures in real-time 3D to suit their personal preferences. With the augmented reality feature, customers can also place the customized high quality 3D product in their home or desired location, to see how the product would look in their space. This allows customers to see customized products from every angle and position them appropriately prior to purchasing, leading to better purchasing decisions and greater buying confidence. This provides an exciting, immersive shopping experience that keeps customers more engaged, better informed, which has shown to generate up to a 94% increase in conversions and a 40% reduction in returns.1
With Nextech AR’s integrated ARitize Configurator technology now available in the ARitize 3D app in the Shopify merchant store, the Company provides a one-stop solution for eCommerce businesses, incorporating both 3D model making and product configurations. This makes the adoption of 3D/AR extremely easy, simple and affordable for Shopify merchants as they can subscribe for different plans which suit their needs and manage the app themselves from their merchant Shopify admin. The functionality is also seamless, as the ARitize 3D app holds an extension that allows Shopify merchants to embed a configurator onto their PDP without modifying code – allowing for an easy drag and drop wherever desired on the product page.
