Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) will save you money on physical objects, enhance training, education and improve customer service communication.
EVE is preparing clients by showing the benefits of designing for VR/AR as it becomes the future. Building these communities now will help clients evolve with this trend.
For example, if are you an artist who is selling your art on the web. You can become a virtual artist because VR/AR can make something out of nothing. AR can make a blank wall into a piece of virtual art. EVE’s current client for Shipmyparts.com is also investing in AR. His customers can access 3D solutions to fix their broken appliances as opposed to do-it-yourself videos which will be a thing of the past. Shipmyparts.com will have virtual technicians located all over the globe too. It will not matter where your business is located.
The benefits of VR and AR as investment choices to help business owners was featured best in the Mondo.com article: “VR vs. AR Which is the Better Investment for Businesses in 2017,” written by Shannon Vize.
“AR provides businesses with a technology that assists with a variety of internal tasks, helps them save on an array of business costs, eliminates the need for local talent, enhances marketing campaigns, and provides brand new visualization opportunities for product development.”
Last week Mark Zuckerburg, Facebook founder, also discussed AR and VR in his latest developer conference F8 2017 keynote. He touched on the communal aspect of both.
As a team EVE is focused on virtual reality design strategies and was hyped about Zuckerburg discussing these new developments.
He stated that AR has three important cases: the main display information like directions, notifications, adding virtual objects like a TV screen or the ability to enhance existing objects like your house structure or face shape.
He raised the question of how many objects in our lives are physical? These objects can be more affordable, and accessible. Directions can be overlaid on the actual street leading to your business. Business signs can be virtual. Additional information about your products overlaid in real life, such as recommendations of what other people have purchased in the past. Reviews will come to life. Extending the physical world online makes business relationships stronger.
“We can put a digital TV on a wall or play chess together instead of buying hardware for $500 it can be a $1 app. These things can be digital not physical and it will save more money. Augmented reality will help mix digital and physical in new ways and it will make our physical reality better, “ Zuckerberg stated.
EVE concentrates on the following three benefits listed below of how VR and AR help business owners.
• SAVE MONEY – Being on the cutting edge of VR/AR would help businesses save money on hardware for your business.
• ENHANCE TRAINING & EDUCATION – A broad range of hands-on practical training and educational VR videos that will allow for easy communication and help others collaborate in business environments.
• FLAWLESS COMMUNICATION – Clear and concise communication using VR customer service. This method improves the Customer Experience because the customer can see the representative and their facial expressions and tone.
