Technology is changing the world rapidly. Organizations can use these changes to advance their goals more effectively, to promote and grow their business, to educate their employees in a more efficient manner, and to attract more clients. One of the latest technologies P2L has adopted as a new and exciting way of learning is Augmented Reality (AR).
What is Augmented Reality?
Investopedia defines Augmented reality (AR) as an enhanced version of the real physical world that is achieved through the use of digital visual elements, sound, or other sensory stimuli and delivered via technology. Unlike virtual reality, which creates its own cyber environment, augmented reality adds to the existing world as it is.
If you’re wondering if your business could benefit from Augmented Reality, here are some reasons why most businesses should invest in Augmented Reality.
Advantages of using Augmented Reality
It creates a unique experience
Whether you’re using Augmented Reality for the first time or it is your 100th time trying it, it can always create a unique experience for users. It’s so easy to see and experience your surroundings in a new way without actually having to change them.
It’s efficient for onboarding new employees
Using Augmented Reality makes it easier and more efficient to train employees. Training modules can be recorded while the employees follow along and practice tasks with minimal risk to workplace operations.
It saves you money
Companies spend a lot of time and money to see the final product only to end up with something they don’t actually like. With Augmented Reality, companies can create a digital sample to see what features will look like next to objects in the real world.
It boosts user engagement
Since the beginning of 2020 businesses have shifted to using AR to advertise and attract customers. Scannable product labels, interactive ads, store signage — these are some ways how AR can be used to boost user engagement.
It’s an effective marketing strategy
Augmented Reality allows customers to try and see how a product works before buying them. Customers will more likely come back and give the product a try because of their experience. This also attracts repetitive engagement since it’s fun and interactive.
Augmented Reality will continue to develop and expand in different business industries. It will be interesting to see its growth in the next ten years. Businesses should incorporate Augmented Reality as early as now to stay ahead of the competition.
