Driving Incremental Value with AR Visualization

Driving Incremental Value with AR Visualization


A large beverage manufacturer wanted to increase the number of point of interest (POI) displays sold in the field across their large format channel. The manufacturer hoped the extra display sales would help them achieve their annual sales target, and set a goal of one (1) extra POI display sold in per store. This posed a challenge for sales associates, who were tasked with convincing store managers–having already bought one POI display–to place a second one in their stores before seeing proof of success.


The manufacturer turned to InContext to understand how 3D visualizations could help them achieve their goal. They learned that ShopperMX GO, InContext’s augmented reality field enablement app, would provide the best chance at successfully selling in the additional POIs. SMX GO is a mobile app designed to overlay digital content onto real-world surroundings, in order to enhance the viewer’s sensory understanding. With SMX GO, sales associates were able to show store managers–within their own stores and in real-time–how an additional POI display would not only fit perfectly in the available space, but also work well with other adjacencies. They achieved this all without having to wait for the physical displays to be created, or more than one meeting scheduled.


With the implementation of SMX GO, the sales associates were able to cut down on the sell-in cycle time and increase store manager confidence in adding supplementary POI displays. This led to the beverage manufacturer achieving an incremental revenue increase of $2,600 per additional display across 50 large format stores, or a total impact of approximately $130,000.

Massive impact

3D models allow customers the opportunity to interact with products in the same way they would in physical retail. They can manipulate the product by rotating, looking beneath, and zooming in and out. In 2D scenarios, viewing can be inefficient, requiring various levels of clicking and navigation between image assets. Investing in high quality product digitization offers deeper connection to buyers providing more interactive and informative content.

Our primary focus and expertise lies serving the consumer product goods and the retail industry. As a result, our 3D model designers are unable to provide direct assistance with 3D animation, 3D character design or video game creation.

Pricing for our 3D modeling services depends on the scope and complexity of the project. Free quotes are customized based on the requirements identified by the client.

The scope and complexity of your 3d modeling project will determine the time to complete. However, with an ecosystem built for scale, we specialize in being able to deliver high-volume, high-quality work with the most efficiency.

First, we gather and analyze your project information to determine requirements. Then, our in-house 3D artists are assigned and presented with the work items to proceed with product model creation. Materials such as product images or other references are considered critical input sources.

A high-quality 3D product model is achieved by ensuring smooth or beveled edges, accurately simulating materials with great attention to detail, skillfully applying textures, and placing light sources correctly. Our 3D models represent a digital twin of a real-life object. They are created using various techniques including automated 2D image to 3D model generation and/or hand modeling by 3D artists. By this method, the highest quality output is rendered.

3D product models bring products to life, which provides consumers product representation
from every angle. Plus, the utility of 3D product models can be incorporated into digital
advertising, e-commerce, and extended reality applications including AR/VR.

Autodesk Maya is the most utilized software by our professional team of model designers for 3D product modeling.

With many file types available, the best file format will depend on how the file is intended to be
used. A few of the most common we support are FBX, OBJ, DAE, and GLB.
