Are you familiar with a company called Avataar? They have been making great strides in the field of both augmented reality and virtual reality, and they are bringing it to the world of retail shopping. More specifically, they’re making it possible to see things online in an entirely different light. If you want to know more, here are 20 things about them that prove they are one of the most dynamic companies in business today.
1. They are riding the wave of the future
The company is capitalizing on their ability to do something that very few other companies are doing right now. They’re using the latest in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technology to bring a whole new world to people who need to see something in real time, yet who also aren’t in the room. As a matter of fact, it’s now possible to see things exactly as they are, even when you’re hundreds of miles away.
2. It’s all available through a smartphone app
These days, it seems like practically everything is available in an app, and this is no exception. That said, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn just how easy the company’s app is to use, not to mention how effective it can be. If you want to see how something looks in your own home before you buy it, this app is rather necessary because it allows you to do exactly that.
3. Their app can be used for all kinds of e-commerce
Imagine that you want to buy a new chair for your living room. Instead of trying to imagine what it would look like, you can take a picture of it and then allow the app to superimpose that image on an existing image of your living room. The app then allows you to see exactly how that particular chair would look in that room. As a result, it’s being widely used for all kinds of e-commerce. It only makes sense that this would be so when you stop and think about it. After all, you’re a lot more likely to buy something if you already know exactly how it’s going to look before you buy it.
4. They even use their app to help clients see what home improvements will look like
The truly amazing thing is that you can use the app for almost anything. It doesn’t matter what type of product or home improvement you have in mind, this is the app that can help you get everything sorted in no time.
5. People who use them have better sales
It shouldn’t come as any surprise that when you use this app, you’re more likely to make a purchase. In reality, you’re actually more than three times more likely to make that purchase (3.5 times to be exact), largely because you already know how that particular product will look in your home. In short, using this app takes the guesswork out of buying new items for your home.
6. Their work helps potential clients spend more time engaging
When you have something so easy to use at your fingertips, you can get what you need quickly and then get on with your day. You might be surprised, but the work this company has put into things means that you’re actually much more likely to engage with those around you. There are two reasons for this. The first reason is obvious. If you’re spending less time dealing with questions about home improvement, then you have more time to spend with those around you. Perhaps even more importantly, you can engage with others more readily when you have the right atmosphere to do so.
7. People who use their system tend to buy more
Clearly, anyone who uses this system is likely to buy items that they might not have purchased otherwise. There’s just something about being able to see exactly how something will look in your home, in the room of your choice, before any money exchanges hands. Furthermore, you even have the opportunity to look at it in 3D. Experts believe that this makes people more than 60% more likely to go ahead and make that purchase they’ve been considering because they know exactly what they are getting up front.
8. You can see different products and how they will look inside your home
Perhaps the most interesting thing about this app is that you can see an accurate representation of the product in question. It doesn’t matter if it’s upholstered or if there is leather with a very specific grain involved, you can see every detail involved. There is absolutely no need to guess how something is going to look when you have access to this app.
9. You can even change the dimensions of products
Imagine that you want to see how a particular piece of furniture is going to look in your home. You can take a photo and then plug in the dimensions of the furniture in question. The app will then give you an accurate representation regarding whether or not that specific piece of furniture will fit in that area and if so, how it will look.
10. You can see different colors, too
Of course, you can also see items in a variety of different colors. Say you love the chair you are thinking about buying, but you’re not so crazy about the color you found. You can simply keep the image in the app and then change its color in order to see how items of various colors would look in that particular space. Find the one that resonates with you and then special order it if need be.
11. Their app can turn regular photos into bone fide 3D images
Imagine what it’s like to be able to put a regular photo of an item in the system and then have it look like an actual 3D object sitting in the room. That is precisely what you get when using this app. That’s how the company is using both virtual reality and augmented reality to help consumers make decisions. Through the work that the company has been doing, clients are able to see exactly what something would look like in their own home, giving them a better idea of what it would actually look like before they buy it.
12. Clients can place objects anywhere they want while using this app
There is definitely plenty of versatility with this app, and that is precisely how the company intended it to be. In fact, they worked tirelessly to make it as easy to use as possible, all while ensuring that it was also effective in a very practical sense.
13. The company uses the cloud to store everything so it’s always at the ready
Like many other corporations, this particular company stores virtually everything in the cloud. Doing so makes it easier for them to store vast amounts of information so that they can give their clients all the versatility they can get.
14. Their app is extremely detailed, yet it also loads quickly
The company was always very keen on designing an app that was as detailed as possible. One of the things they ran up against early on was the fact that traditionally, these types of apps take an incredibly long time to load. The more graphics you include, the more time it takes for everything to come online. Fortunately, the company kept at it and found a way to make their app detailed and realistic while still allowing it to load quickly.
15. They exist across all forms of social media
It’s true that they have designed a system that allows users to download an app and work directly from their smartphone. In addition, you can also find a presence from the company on every form of social media. The idea is to allow you a sneak-peek at what you;re missing if you don’t already have the app. Of course, you can download the app directly from there if you like what you see.
16. They’re based in India
More and more often, some of the leading tech companies are based in India. That is precisely where this one is located, in Bangalore. For years, people had a tendency to virtually dismiss any company that was based in this particular region. Today, things are much different. The area is quickly becoming one of the most well respected areas for tech startups. That is something that this particular company is very proud of.
17. They currently have approximately 100 employees
The company started out with only a few employees. Slowly, they hired about 50 people and then things really started to take off. Today, they have more than 100 employees and it looks like they will soon be hiring about 100 more. The truth of the matter is that they have grown by leaps and bounds, something that can put a great deal of stress on almost any company. That said, they seem to be handling the situation fairly well. In fact, they have remained focused on the tasks at hand, even while expanding and hiring additional personnel. There is little doubt that they will also end up expanding into related areas as well as expanding their research and development department.
18. They’ve been in business for more than a few years now
A lot of people seem to think that the company only recently went into business, but that isn’t exactly the case. The truth of the matter is that they have been in business since 2014. Furthermore, they have been perfecting their operation since that time, using the most advanced technology available to do so. One of the more interesting things about this company is that they have never rested on their laurels. When they first started, it was much more difficult to create the type of app that they have because the technology to do so simply wasn’t there. The thing is, they never gave up and they never stopped trying. That is exactly what has led them to the success they are experiencing today.
19. They focus on dreaming about things that aren’t possible and then making them so
Some people will tell you that you shouldn’t walk around with your head in the clouds. Others will tell you that if you never dream about what could potentially become reality, then it’s likely that it will never actually happen. After all, the greatest accomplishments have to start somewhere. More often than not, the beginning exists in the slightest spark of an idea , one that many might consider impossible at the time. That is precisely what this company likes to focus on. They want to do the things that have previously been thought impossible to achieve. So far, they seem to be doing a great job of it all. It will be interesting to see where they go in the future.
20. Many people claim that they like working for them
There are a lot of people that say they thoroughly enjoy working for them. Oddly enough, there seems to be an almost equal number of people who aren’t as charitable with their comments. It’s understandable that this would happen, at least to some degree. There isn’t a company in existence that doesn’t have employees who absolutely love working there as well as a few who aren’t so thrilled with the prospect of doing so. For the most part, it seems like this is a company that likes to focus on diversity. They also seem to pay a fair wage and they are always looking for someone who can come onboard with fresh ideas.
