Unfortunately, it’s difficult for a person on the phone to help customers and clients in real time. Instructions down the phone can only help so much, and it can delay sales calls for a long period of time if your employees don’t know the specific information they need. PLNAR is built exactly for these kinds of situations – no more pencil and paper, no more awkward inaccurate instructions down the phone, PLNAR make things much easier.
Download PLNAR on your phone, and you can quickly use the augmented reality (AR) features to make recreations of the room you’re in, including dimensions. This information can then be sent to sales representatives, who can use the information to suggest furniture or custom build equipment according to the dimensions they’ve been provided with.
The app even create CAD file versions of the rooms it scans, allowing teams plenty of flexibility in building furniture, carpets and more for the specific dimensions customers specify. PLNAR is just the beginning for the company who believe in AR solutions to a variety of established business issues.
Of course there’s a software development kit (SDK) available for the PLNAR app now, allowing anyone to be able to customise the PLNAR experience to their business model. Andy Greff, CEO of PLNAR creators SmartPicture Technologies has said; “After listening to feedback from our professional users, we saw an opportunity to provide existing enterprises with a quick, easy way to implement AR dimensioning technology into their business models without requiring additional, extensive and costly iOS development. PLNAR helps companies close more opportunities by empowering their customers to measure spaces themselves.”
