AR gives to retail buyers new opportunities, making the brand’s recognition easier and strengthening their confidence to it. Viewing a product in AR on their proper gadgets is a sort of confidence game with the buyers. It creates an impression that you owe a product in some sense, and not just only watch it on a web-page. It is connected with tactile potential of augmented reality – with this technology it’s possible to project an image or information into the real world with a help of a smartphone.
For example, potential car owners could download BMW application onto their gadgets and test the chosen vehicle in the environment wished, in order to study a car of their dream. You can watch your car in real time, choose its model, its color, changing the cars wheels and car’s interior.
«Our vehicles are emotional products, and, in order to experience an emotion, you should actually test the product», has commented Andrea Castronovo, vice president of BMW Group on sales strategy and retail trade, when this function has been launched last year for the first time. Creating such an experience, BMW seeks to augment a level of the clients’ satisfaction in a way of creating the client’s emotional interaction with a product, which does not require making of a visit to the company’s office.
