Creating new retail concepts to optimize the shopper experience.
In today’s world, retailing is a tough game. From grocery and liquor stores to office supply and specialty stores the challenges are similar. Competition from online, shrinking margins and an increasingly informed customer base mean you are working harder than ever to create a shopping experience that brings shoppers in and keeps them coming back.
With cloud-based virtual reality simulations powered by ShopperMX™, you can create and execute optimal store and aisle layouts faster and easier than ever before. Our VR solutions give you the flexibility to create and iterate your concepts in a virtual world, eliminating time-intensive physical build-outs and configuration changes. Want to learn how a new trending product will fair in your store? Create, modify and evaluate in virtual reality before making a potentially costly and time-consuming mistake. See in advance how new ideas will work in the real world, and get a leg up on the competition.
Virtual lets you:
- Make macro-level changes on the fly
- Create and visualize in-store merchandising concepts
- See how new displays and signage will look without physical mock-ups
- Learn what will catch the shopper’s eye, and generate sales before bringing a new concept to market
- Drive compliance by communicating new concepts and directives for in-store execution using immersive virtual simulations
General Eric Shinseki, former U.S. Army Chief of Staff, once said “If you don't like change, you're going to like irrelevance even less.” No one understands that better than today’s retailers. Let us help you navigate changes in retailing—affordably, quickly, reliably.
