In today’s marketplace, ecommerce business owners need technological resources to help them connect with customers and enrich the shopping experience. Advances in AR have made this possible – but historically, building multi-channel 3D and AR product experiences have required hundreds of thousands of dollars in resources and months of planning and development.
With these constraints in place, the gap has grown wider between small and medium business owners and the largest ecommerce brands in the industry.
At LevAR, they are on a mission to level the playing field for SMB ecommerce retailers, delivering exceptional 3D modeling and AR product experiences with lightning speed and an investment that every company can afford. The fast-growing SaaS company is led by founder Tre Lucas, who envisioned technology that could be used by anyone, regardless of experience, background, and resources.
“My background is in retail and ecommerce, so we approach everything we do from the retailer’s perspective,” Lucas says. “The attention to detail we have in creating 3D models goes back to our understanding of retail and the importance of capturing the fidelity and detail of a product.”
Because LeVAR integrates seamlessly with ecommerce platforms like Shopify, integrating the models with online storefronts is as easy as a few clicks.
“We spent two years building the backend infrastructure to make things easy, fast, and cost-effective,” Lucas says, adding that although their speed is unmatched, they also create models that set the standard for quality.
LevAR’s Director of Marketing Kirsten Brehmer says that LevAR’s speed and ease of use is what keeps clients happy and returning for more help. In this way, they are empowering small and mid-sized ecommerce companies to compete at the highest level thanks to revolutionary technological breakthroughs. Best of all, business owners do not need to be well-versed in technology or augmented reality to enjoy the benefits that LevAR offers.
“Our platform makes the setup and onboarding process nearly seamless,” Brehmer says.
“It is a one-click integration, you just add the app to your store and you can see all your SKUs. From there, you request what models you want and those are built within 2-3 days through our art team. You see them, you approve them, and they go live in your store – it’s pretty straightforward.”
Retailers who require more complex models or different SKUs can opt for more customizable development, but the core of LevAR is helping ecommerce businesses develop and launch 3D models and AR product experiences quickly. Within a week or less, SMB retailers will have the right tools they need to compete in the digital landscape.
“We are the easiest and most accessible multi-channel AR platform,” Brehmer says. “Others might create models or do custom work, but the beauty of LevAR is that it is designed for an audience that doesn’t need to know anything about AR or 3D. All they need to know is how to add an app to their Shopify store.”
For the LevAR team, their technology is designed not only to produce exquisite 3D models, but to provide the mechanism for companies to share their products in a new way.
“You can have 3D models, but if you don’t have a way to share them, they are useless. And that is where the larger retailers have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars to bring that in-house,” Brehmer says. “We give ecommerce retailers an in-house experience without the price tag.”
By demystifying AR and allowing retailers to use their technology to lift their business to new heights, LevAR is transforming the ecommerce industry for the better.
“Having a multi-channel AR platform is incredible, but that is not exactly what we are here to do,” Lucas says. “Our mission is really to help businesses create genuine customer connections. If we can help companies build better connections with their customers, then we are really living up to who we want to be as a company.”
