Cappasity offers possibilities to create immersive Virtual Reality shopping experiences
Cappasity is a platform developed to help online retailers present their products in an interactive 3D form on their websites, mobile apps and naturally in VR. With a range of turnkey solutions, Cappasity makes it easy for any e-commerce business to use emerging opportunities that VR has to offer.
Immersive online shopping is not anymore a question of the future with VR headsets available to anyone: ranging from cheap and affordable to high-end ones. And to let online retailers communicate with their customers on a different, engaging level, Cappasity has thought of every step on the way from creation of digital 3D models to seamless integration of VR technology to existing platforms and websites.
A range of Cappasity’s easy-to-use 3D scanning solutions include both affordable options for small and medium business and fully automated professional scanners for big enterprises.
Once the product line is digitized either by Cappasity’s solutions or using any other methods, all 3D models are uploaded to Cappasity Cloud for storage and further embedding. The cloud-based platform provides an opportunity to easily showcase true-to-live 3D models of products, bringing them right into customers’ headsets.
Cappasity VR app then would provide a “plug and play” mode seamlessly integrated into different e-commerce platforms. Regardless of which headset customers own, Cappasity VR app would be able to utilize unique features of the VR device used, still running with optimal performance. Besides, Cappasity VR SDK would be also available to integrate VR support into 3rd party software and other VR applications.
Cappasity Inc. Partners with PrestaShop to Provide 3D Opportunities for E-commerce Businesses
Cappasity Inc. and PrestaShop today announced a strategic partnership to open up cutting-edge 3D technologies for e-commerce. Together, the companies are going to provide online retailers access to interactive product imaging in 3D and virtual reality (VR).
With the integration of Cappasity™ platform, more than 250 000 online retailers worldwide using PrestaShop software will get an immediate ability to upload, manage and embed 3D models of their products. These will be managed as easily as product images, while bringing a new level of interactivity for shoppers.
“Being able to rotate, zoom in and see a product from any angle, customers get richer visual information about what they are intending to buy,” – explained Konstantin Popov, CEO and founder of Cappasity Inc. “Using 3D technologies is a perfect way for e-merchants to boost their conversion rates and significantly decrease the number of returns, letting customers make right choices and engage emotionally. We believe in the effectiveness of 3D and VR technologies for e-commerce, and this is why we are aiming at making them easy and accessible for everyone.”
PrestaShop is not only offering simple solutions to build, manage and develop a successful online store. As the industry leader in open source solutions for ecommerce, the company is focused on implementing the latest technologies to provide benefits for both online retailers and their customers.
“New technologies are emerging at a rapid pace. We are always striving to help our merchants succeed by offering them the best tools to maximize their profits,” – said Bruno Leveque, founder and chairman at PrestaShop. “With this partnership, we find ourselves at the forefront of another ecommerce innovation – bringing truly immersive experiences into our growing merchant base.”
PrestaShop’s retailers can directly access their own 3D model storage on Cappasity through their shop’s back office. Embedded on an online store’s product pages, 3D models can be browsed from any screen regardless of a users’ device or platform, with a select option to enable VR view mode.
Retailers can digitize their products into true-to-life 3D models using 3D scanning solutions from Cappasity Inc., or upload already existing 3D models. One of such solutions is Cappasity Easy 3D Scan™, a professional 3D scanning software for laptops and tablets powered by Intel® RealSense™ 3D cameras.
PrestaShop was founded in 2007 with a mission to provide world-class ecommerce software through open source innovation.
