Business understanding, the key to a successful partership
Cover the client’s floor inreal time with an AR app

Gislerud

Challenge

Gislerud Carpets wanted to make it easy for event planners and other major carpet clients to quickly see how a room or a surface would feel with different carpets, colours and logos. Customers would be able to unravel the carpets in real time, wherever they are. At the same time, Gislerud Carpets wanted to give their clients the option to send requests for proposals according to their wishes.

Augmented reality with an experience. In real time.

Challenge

We developed an AR app which Gislerud Carpets’s clients can download to their smartphones. The AR app enhances their experience in the real space. By opening up the app and indicating the carpet’s beginning and end in the camera view, the client can then see a carpet placed in the room, on their display. The customer will see the carpet in their chosen colour, and if they wish they can upload a logo or image which also can be displayed. It’s easy for the client to change the colour of the carpet to visualise how different colours work in the environment. Through AR technology, the client can move around the room in 360° and view the carpet from different angles. The client can also send a Request for Proposal through the app, which goes directly to Gislerud Carpets.

We rarely get the chance to display our whole range of carpets in the environments where they are needed. With this app, that can be a reality. Through widespread use of this app, we’re hoping to reach new customers.
