Most of us are shopaholics ☺
Given some spare time and some spare dimes, all of us, would go on shopping apparels for the entire day.
However, buying clothes can turn out be a tiresome process because one has to physically try at least 4-5 clothes before making the final call.
Furthermore, long queues in your retail store can scare customers away.
It is not uncommon for customers to choose a couple of garments and then leave it just because it took so long for the queue to clear up.
Now, this certainly, impacts your conversions. Doesn’t it!
There are tons of other choices for your customers but just because these need to be tried on physically in trial rooms, deters most of them to try all of them.
So, is there a way to help these customers make better buying decisions by allowing them to try on clothes without actually going to a trial room?

Augmented reality bridges the gap between customer and retail. It ends up the tiresome process of changing dress by saying good bye to physical trial room with virtual fitting room solution.
Take a sneak peek into the Virtual fitting room concept.
