TORONTO and ASHFORD, Kent, UK, Sept. 27 /CNW/ - View22 Technology Inc.
("View22") a leading provider of 3D Web commerce solutions, and Planit, a
leading developer of design and manufacturing software, today announced plans
to collaborate in offering a best-of-breed 3D design solution for home product
retailers in multi-store environments.
The effort provides immediate benefits to retailers in the kitchen, bath
and other home product markets that want to offer customers a seamless
approach to plan, design and shop on the web, at a kiosk and/or with an
in-store design consultant. The combination of View22's Immersiv 3D Web
platform and Planit's Fusion software, allows consumers to explore options and
create designs from their home computer or in-store kiosk, then order online
or save the project, book an appointment with a sales consultant at the store
and optimize the design before placing an order in person.
This start-to-finish process promises to decrease the bottleneck and
expense of design consultations and increase buyer conversion rates. A Planit
spokesperson said, "We are very pleased to be able to work with View22 to
enhance the value of our Planit Fusion solution. We're now the first to offer
a truly complete multi-store solution with a very impressive, visually rich 3D
Web experience for both our customers and the end-consumer."
View22's Immersiv 3D Web platform lets customers use all popular 3D file
formats including: 3D Studio Max, SketchUp!, DWF, DXF, OBJ, and IGES. This
open design allows companies to leverage and re-deploy existing 3D digital
assets. By integrating Immersiv with Planit Fusion, driven by one catalogue
with file compatibility for geometry data exchange, View22 and Planit have
dramatically shortened the time to implement this best-of-breed solution in
"This relationship is consistent with our strategy to enable market
leading partners to enhance the value delivered to their customers through our
Immersiv platform," said Amnon Zohar, View22's CEO and President, Europe.
