Art Carpet is one of the world's leading area rug manufacturers as their customers recognize them for offering quality products and extraordinary values. Serving 6 continents and over 65 countries, Art Carpet is one of the area rug industry's major players. Having their products sold in one of the most successful retail stores globally, Art Carpet has worked to make rug shopping easier by allowing consumers to visualize what a rug will look like in their home.
Recently, CGTrader ARsenal, one of the pioneers of 3D technology, has partnered with Art Carpet to implement Augmented Reality QR codes on their Carmel Rug program at Costco Wholesale. The technology will help bring area rug visualization to the next level in one of the world’s premier retailers.
The partnership is something that both companies are looking forward to. As stated by our CEO Dalia Lasaite:
We’re excited to have Art Carpet using our Augmented Reality QR codes to improve their customer experience. Changing shopper expectations require retailers to rethink the way they sell online and we’re delighted to be part of the solution empowering Art Carpet to deliver customer-first experiences using 3D product visualization and AR.
CGTrader actively participates in a technological e-commerce revolution and is trusted by the world's top brands such as Nike, Google, Shopify, MADE, and Rebecca Minkoff. John Brooking, President of Art Carpet USA, commented:
We are thrilled about our partnership with CGTrader. This is our first opportunity at doing business with Costco Wholesale, and we're really excited to see the level of response we experience with the QR / AR codes. We believe the days of Augmented Reality are here and strongly encourage other retailers to take advantage of this unique technology to improve the customer shopping experience and retail sell-thru, as well as reduce online returns and become the business of tomorrow. We appreciate the help we have received from CGTrader in making this possible!
QR codes are an effective way to showcase additional product information to both end-users and suppliers. With CGTrader ARsenal, the end-to-end product visualization and digital asset management solution, retailers can produce QR codes for their 3D products and leverage them on product packaging or labels, in print catalogues, and online at no additional cost.
