Jena, Germany, February 1, 2022 – In cooperation with rooom, Intershop and Intershop Platinum Partner Smart Commerce, a promising extension for the Intershop Commerce Platform has been created. It enables simple, universal and very fast 3D product visualization in the Intershop PWA and configuration of the visualization directly via the Intershop solution.
The rooom 3D Product Viewer offers the possibility to present products online more vividly than ever before. Visitors of an online store can freely view any product from all sides and, if required, project it into their living room or bathroom, for example – with just one click via AR. These advantages of 3D visualization support the buying process, improve the product information content and thus ensure lower return rates.
Given this potential for e-commerce, Smart Commerce has integrated the rooom 3D Product Viewer, an application of the rooom productCloud, into the Intershop Commerce Platform – both in the front end (PWA) for 3D visualization and in the back end for configuration. Visualization on end devices don‘t entail extensive hardware requirements, and the high-performance Intershop PWA is further enhanced with the 3D Product Viewer, which is characterized by equally short loading times.
“Through this integration, our Virtual Experience Platform for 3D visualizations is also made available to e-commerce, especially to Intershop customers,” says Hans Elsner, CEO of rooom AG. “An important application scenario is, for example, the exact search for spare parts in 3D models or exploded drawings and their purchase directly from the model,” adds Markus Klahn, CEO of Intershop. “The cooperation of three Jena-based companies,” says Dr. Ludger Vogt, CEO of Smart Commerce, “generates a multitude of new possibilities in e-commerce, which can of course be used worldwide.”
