Implementing Virtual Reality in Consumer Applications

The buzz around Virtual Reality(VR) technology has increased over the recent years thanks to multiple commercial applications. Initially, the technology was exposed only to fewer domains like medicine, engineering, education, design, training, and entertainment. It is now used as an effective marketing tool by online retailers for branding purposes.

SuperData, a Nielsen company released the following findings in their 2019 study -

Annual VR revenues reached $3.6 billion in 2018

A total of 700,000 units of Sony PlayStation VR, 555,000 units of Ouerculus Go, 160,000 units of PC-Tethered Oculus Rift, and 130,000 units of HTC Vive were sold in 2018

The increasing adoption of virtual reality technology is an indicator for businesses to use it as a novel marketing tool.

Virtual reality creates an immersive and simulated environment that is similar or completely distinct from the real world. It provides an interactive medium for advertising strategies, education programs, and entertainment content. Leading brick and mortar retailers are using virtual reality technology to market their brands at shopping centers. The technology overlays machine-generated information onto existing real-world views and is accessible through smartphone devices. AR VR app development services are used to create interactive catalogs that influence the purchasing decisions of buyers.

Let's explore the key business benefits of VR applications.

Impactful Training

VR technology provides an immersive environment where personnel can learn new techniques without risking physical damage or loss. It acts as an ideal knowledge transfer tool that accelerates employee training requirements to maximize business benefits. Training with VR headsets is a cost-effective activity for organizations that need efficiency and flexibility.

Effective Brand Marketing

VR solutions are suitable for generating brand engagement at conferences, trade shows, exhibitions, and more. Leading businesses are using virtual reality as a tool to showcase their products in a limited space. Real estate businesses use VR headsets and applications at exhibitions to display interiors, exteriors, place attractions, property surroundings to their prospective clients.

For instance, All Nippon Airways (ANA) along with Acumen created a virtual reality room tour of their business class cabin flight number 777-300ER. The purpose of creating virtual cabin room tours is to market their service to their elite customers.

Presentation and Sales Tour

VR technology adds auditory and visual flair to presentations to influence prospective customers. LearnBrite is a powerful experiential learning authoring web platform used by businesses for virtual meetings, training courses, and presentations. Expressive VR emojis are available on the platform to provide attendees a real meeting environment without being in the same location.

User Interactive Apps

VR apps create an immersive customer experience with interactive 360-degree visuals. 360i is a digital marketing agency that created a 360-degree fun marketing campaign for Oreo. The campaign takes confectioners on a whimsical journey through a wonder vault. The interactive VR campaign has boosted the popularity of Oreo among youngsters, kids, and adolescents.

Virtual reality technology has made a significant impact on Android and iOS users with web and mobile apps. More and more app development companies are integrating VR technology into their client apps to enhance the overall experience of users. Integrating VR with gaming apps or social media apps leads to several interaction possibilities in a real-world setting. Creating a real-world environment for customers improves the online shopping experience, enriches learning, and strengthens team collaboration.
