advantages and potential of a virtual catalogue
Do you want to improve your sales process? Convince new prospects to buy your products? The 3D catalogue is the ideal complement to your usual sales tools. We talk about it a lot, but do you really know what it is?
Created with the latest technologies, the interactive catalogue can be consulted on all kinds of devices: smartphones, tablets, connected glasses or virtual reality headsets.
Via an augmented reality application, the catalogue comes to life and makes your product appear in front of you in 3D, and at real size. It is also possible to animate the product, to discover it from all angles, to modify its colour and even to enter its workings to visualise the technology, flows, connections, movements and complementarities... etc. Total immersion guaranteed!
Those who have tried it testify to the enormous impact of the interactive 3D catalogue. They all agree on the same point: customers are bluffed and take a big step forward in the purchasing process. A study even shows that 88% of people who have consulted an Augmented Reality application are more likely to place an order! All this because the customer is able to project himself through this immersive experience!
This type of interactive catalogue application is complemented by features to speed up the purchasing process. Search by keywords, link to product sheets, access to characteristics, download of order forms, contact requests, etc. Information buttons and action buttons will make this catalogue a real sales support tool.

As if you were inside the car, you can operate the car's functions, discover the options, operate the sunroof and observe the mechanism, activate the air conditioning and observe the air flow in the cabin. Every detail has been thought through and it's a great first approach for the customer.
