Augmented Reality

More reality, more sales: How augmented reality facilitates customer experience & sales in car dealerships

The way cars are bought and sold is changing fast. Customers are visiting traditional car dealerships less and less. They go online to configure their dream car or to look for the best deal. Inner-city showrooms or pop-up stores allow people to experience the real cars. This means the customer journey from the first impulse to closing the deal has become fragmented. It’s high time to fix it.

Augmented Reality is a great way to do so by updating the customer experience. In this webinar, Advantech's partner AMERIA will show how Augmented Reality can change the customer experience inside and outside the car dealership. You’ll get an in-depth look at how it helps to realign the parts of the journey delivering not only great experiences and services to customers but also tools supporting sales representatives. And all that in a scalable way.

Stay informed, stay safe: How the contactless gesture-controlled KIOSK benefits customers in the public space

Content

A digital signage system or information kiosk in a public space provides a lot of convenience to the visitors. It’s an information point to help people navigate themselves or acquire related information in public spaces. In the past years, the digital signage system has transformed into an interactive median, not only to provide information or showing commercials, but also to be used as a touch point to engage customers. However in the time of Corona crisis, a “touch point” in a public space could potentially become a ”spread point”.

When people have to hold the 1.5 meter distance, the role of an information kiosk is more important than ever. But how to have an interactive system that gives the visitor all the information without spreading the invisible and dangerous enemy? In this webinar, Advantech’s partner Ameria will share how they use Intel and Advantech technology to enable a gesture-controlled Kiosk to provide the visitors necessary information in a contactless way. Even more, this solution is in roll out phase currently to enhance some safety measures in the public space, so visitors can stay in formed and stay safe.
