DESIGN VISUALLY IN ANY SPACE
VividPlatformâ¢ is a user friendly design-to-purchase tool for retailers, manufacturers, and designers. It enables your customers and sales teams to select products, build configurations, and visualise designs within the customer environment - in real-time and with amazing realism. Whether you are a furniture retailer, a home-improvement business, or a materials manufacturer, VividPlatformâ¢ engages the customer in designing with your products and empowers them to make the purchase by answering the customer's key questions: 'How will it really look?' and 'Will it fit in the space?
With VividARâ¢ your customers can experience realistic looking virtual products as part of their own home. Using a camera and a printed marker, or an iPad without a marker, VividARâ¢ allows your customers to take a photo of their room and to start instantly adding and arranging any number of furniture items inside the image. When creating designs and comparing alternatives they can try different options, fabrics and finishes, all the time visualising how it all fits together.
With the VividARâ¢ Live-Mode the customers can view your products as part of their own home in a real-time video. Viewing the room through the video camera on their tablet, the customers can turn in different directions in the room and walk around to see the products from different angles, getting different views of their design and selection. Like in the VividARâ¢ photo-mode the customers can select any number of products, try different options, and change the arrangements in real-time, as they go about selecting the products that are right for them.
InteriorPlanner is a virtual reality design solution that gives your customers freedom to build any kind of space, from single rooms to a complete house, in just seconds. It gives the customer full flexibility to use virtual products from real manufacturers and brands in the design of their home, combine different elements and arrangements to match their exact needs and play with colours and material, while all the time seeing how all brands and products fit together, in realistic full colour 3D and in real-time.
OMNI-CHANNEL, SOCIAL, AND COLLABORATIVE
VividPlatform is omni-channel. It ties together all the customer touchpoints along the journey to purchase and enables the same designs to be accessed anywhere and on any device, from browsers and tablet apps to touchscreen design stations and virtual glasses. With the customer's interior design as the linchpin it creates a true omni-channel customer experience as well as ensures a smooth transition between the customer touchpoints in online and in-store channels.
VividPlatform is natively social. The customers can easily share their designs with friends and exchange comments and ideas. Product and design ideas can be emailed to the customers or published in the social-media, with the customers immediately being able to visualise what a particular recommendation would look like as part of their own home.
VividPlatform is collaborative. The designs and product choices can be shared between users and the designs modified and commented by others. Besides a true consultative interaction between customer and sales person, this enables highly-effective collaboration on designs and creation of professional communities, e.g. commercial furniture teams working on the same office design, an interior designer assisting customer in creating the dream-home, or a kitchen sales consultant building the configuration for the customer's home.
FROM DESIGN TO PURCHASE
VividPlatformâ¢ is a sales and marketing tool, not a mere marketing gimmick. In addition to engaging the customers in designing with your products, it integrates with your business systems, like CRM and ERP, and supports the full customer buying cycle from the initial discovery of products to the completed purchase. It provides you with detailed information about the customer's space, design choices, and product preferences, giving you an unprecedented level of insight into the customer's situation and behaviour. As a result, VividPlatformâ¢ enables you to provide a truly personalised and seamless shopping experience for your customers.
VividPlatformâ¢ is a real business tool. Going beyond just listing the products and options customer has chosen, the platform's business rule capabilities can be used to automatically report prices, calculate materials, include mandatory elements and accessories like fixings, calculate shipping charges, estimate labour costs, and even to drive the manufacturing of the products.
VividPlatformâ¢ scales with your business. It is a highly customisable Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) solution in which different features can be individually activated based on your business needs and all interfaces adopted to suit your brand experience. As a result, the VividPlatformâ¢ can be deployed in less than two months and you receive an immediate Return On Investment (ROI) from your new visual design-to-purchase sales approach.
ON THE PATH TO PURCHASE
VividPlatformâ¢ enables customers to configure any interior content, visualize design goals in real time, and make purchases with or without a salesperson â at any time. It gives you a market differentiator that engages the customers in designing with your products, assists them in their decision making, as well as creates an emotional bond with your products. As a result, you get benefits on every step on the path to purchase: you reach more customers, create more sales opportunities, sell products faster, and close deals easier.
IN YOUR BUSINESS
In addition to the top-line growth, adopting the VividPlatformâ¢ design-to-purchase approach improves your bottom-line. By simplifying tasks, increasing the efficiencies, and making many of the time consuming sales tasks automatic, it creates you savings and clear return-on-investment, even before the top-line sales and marketing impacts are considered. The design to purchase platform can help you to, for example
Increase the effectiveness of the sales personnel
By removing many time consuming tasks, like looking up information, verifying availability, and entering orders, VividPlatformâ¢ frees your sales personnel to their most important task: selling your products.
Have more effective use of floor space
As the sales people are able to demonstrate the full-catalogue of products using the virtual and augmented reality sales tools less physical floor space is required.
Reduce the number of sales error costs
Data errors cause a significant cost to the retailer in the form of delivery issues and bad customer experience. With VividPlatformâ¢ these errors are removed as the customer's selection can be ordered directly from the application.
- Reduce the cost of sales material and errors
When the product and sales information is delivered digitally less sales collateral is required. The in-store and customer collateral material and pricelists are also always up-to-date.
- Improve the sales training and lower costs
By doubling as a cost-effective sales training channel, a design-to-purchase platform helps the retailer to cost-effectively improve the sales personnel knowledge, provide them information on the latest design trends, and give them new ideas for upselling and cross-selling opportunities.

WHAT IS ROCK OF EYE?
To judge the value of a thing by âROCK Oâ THâ EYEâ, by view or sight, without weighing or measuring
To enable all consumers to experience the 'Rock of Eye' when they plan their interiors and purchases.
While nowadays 'rock of eye' is a term mostly associated with bespoke tailoring - to describe the almost magical ability to immediately see and understand tasteful combinations and proportions - originally its use is not limited only to the tailoring trade. It does, in fact, simply mean 'to be guided by the eye', and to, by seeing something, instinctively and by intuition know when something is 'Right'.
