How VisionForge impacts on E-Commerce, Retail, Consumer Packaging, and Customer Experience

January 22, 2024
00

Product design and development is a booming industry making up the $14,000 million industry globally, and it is only expected to grow. Designers and marketers have an incredibly intricate and important role in the commercialization of products. Bringing a product to market in an appealing, engaging, and eye catching manner is the key to delivering high sales and revenue for an industry. But this task is easier said than done, as designing products, packaging, store arrangements, and online visualizations is a painstaking process taking skilled designers weeks if not months to create. Producing a high quality design that matches the brand, seasonality, and consumer metrics has never been an easy task, but VisionForge from Ankercloud technologies is aiming to make it easier. Let’s examine some of the use cases where VisionForge can streamline the creation process.

1. Visualizing Retail Excellence: VisionForge's Impact on the Customer Experience

In the dynamic landscape of retail, shaping an attracting customer experience is important. The surging demand for immersive shopping encounters has boomed the world's retail market to different heights. Imagine a retail store that sells a wide range of products, including home decor items such as flower vases/pots, clocks, paintings and wallpapers etc. The store aims to create visually appealing product displays to attract and engage customers. However, manually rearranging products in various settings to assess their visual impact on a passing customer can be time-consuming and tedious. 

Enter VisionForge. The retailer integrates VisionForge into their merchandising and retail strategy. When introducing a new product, the model is trained to simulate and visualize how the vase or a painting would appear in different contexts within a home setting. The product allows the user to visualize different layouts, lightings, and consumer views, based on what works for them. This includes scenarios like placing the vase on a dining table or in a living room shelf with precise position, color, and mood aptitude. 

For example, to promote seasonal or special events, store managers can input specific seasonal themes or events, and VisionForge will generate virtual mock-ups of the store layout tailored to those parameters. For instance, it can visualize how the introduction of holiday-themed decor items or seasonal color palettes will enhance the overall ambiance of the store. This allows retailers to proactively plan and execute visually striking displays that resonate with customers during specific times of the year, encouraging customers to spend more time in stores, driving sales.

This cutting-edge tool kicks off the process by collecting a set of reference images from the user, capturing expansive views of the store or zooming in on specific product displays. Users are then granted creative freedom to experiment with color schemes, merchandise arrangement, lighting, and more, tailoring the visuals to harmonize seamlessly with their distinctive preferences and style. It commences with a specialized text-to-image model, interpreting user prompts and settings to craft sets of  images spotlighting key features of the retail space based on the set of reference images that the user has submitted, capturing the style and themes of the images. Following this, customers can refine these images using an image-to-image model equipped with inpainting capabilities, seamlessly integrated with the robust Bedrock API from AWS. This can be used to make major or minor fixes to the images, including changing positioning, adding or removing objects, fixing lighting, or color modifications.

VisionForge, with its adept simulation and visualization capabilities, becomes a catalyst for strategic decision-making. Imagine store managers inputting seasonal themes or special events, and VisionForge responding with virtual mock-ups tailored to those parameters. This isn't just about creating visually appealing displays; it's about driving sales. Retailers, armed with VisionForge, can proactively plan and execute captivating displays during specific times of the year, enticing customers to spend more time in stores and, consequently, increasing sales.

Moreover, the efficiency gains are palpable. From the initial collection of reference images to the refinement process through the image-to-image model, VisionForge streamlines the visual merchandising workflow. It's not just about saving time; it's about optimizing resources and maximizing returns. As retailers experiment with layouts, colors, and lighting within the virtual canvas, they are sculpting an environment that resonates with customers on a deeper level.

The financial implications are clear – VisionForge doesn't merely improve product presentation; it boosts the bottom line. With the power to make major or minor fixes seamlessly, retailers can ensure their displays align with market demands and consumer preferences. This isn't just an investment in aesthetics; it's a strategic move to captivate consumer attention, drive sales, and navigate the ever-evolving retail landscape with a visual prowess that translates into tangible business success. VisionForge isn't just a tool; it's a savvy business ally, transforming the retail narrative and solidifying its place as a strategic imperative in the pursuit of retail excellence.

Are you overwhelmed by the sheer volume of data you need to handle and analyze? Is your IT budget stretched to its limits, leaving you uncertain about the feasibility of transitioning to the cloud? Do you grapple with questions about security, alignment with business processes, and the complexity of migrating to the cloud? If you find yourself pondering any of these questions, it might be time to consider embarking on a cloud journey.

Migrating to the cloud can take many forms, from a full-scale IT migration to adding new components or modernizing your existing infrastructure. Recognizing the diverse nature of cloud requirements and use cases, Ankercloud has developed the Accelerated Cloud Exploration (ACE) program to help businesses assess their current status, gain visibility on relevant stakeholders, understand timelines, perform a detailed Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis, and provide a testbed/sandbox for cloud migration considerations.

What is ACE?

The Accelerated Cloud Exploration (ACE) program incorporates the components of the AWS MAP Assess phase while harnessing Ankercloud's extensive migration expertise and experience. It is designed to offer both speed and agility through the strength of Ankercloud's global team.

How Does ACE Work?

The ACE program operates within a 4-6 week timeframe, during which a series of workshops and deep dive sessions are conducted. Together with the customer, testbeds/sandboxes are prepared, and a comprehensive report is created, offering insights into all aspects of cloud adoption.

What is Included in ACE?

1. Migration Readiness Assessment

In the first workshop, we evaluate your current IT setup, governance, and security requirements. We analyze your readiness and adoption factors to shed light on the scope and goals of a potential migration.

2. Discovery Workshop

After establishing business and organizational alignment, we dive into your existing technology inventory, including your application stack and databases. This step is crucial in mapping the right AWS services and infrastructure for your needs.

3. Migration Patterns and Architectures

Post-Discovery Workshop, we build a precise AWS architecture tailored to your specific requirements. This includes architectural diagrams, configurations, and systems to adopt new cloud services or replace existing infrastructure with AWS.

4. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Analysis

We help you understand the investment plan and ROI analysis for the next 36 months. This encompasses post-migration AWS costs, savings compared to alternative options, and the right infrastructure sizing and configurations.

5. Proof of Concept (PoC)

ACE goes beyond mere planning. We offer hands-on experience by providing a sandbox environment or an application on AWS. This allows you to experience the benefits of migration firsthand and gives your developers a "look and feel" of their post-migration infrastructure.

6. Carbon Emission Calculation

As an eco-conscious program, ACE also includes detailed calculations of on-premises vs. AWS CO2 emissions. This information highlights the environmental benefits and carbon footprint reductions your business can achieve with cloud migration.

How Much Does ACE Cost?

Depending on your current and future IT infrastructure plans, Ankercloud can provide the ACE program free of charge, which means a 100% discount or funding. Furthermore, follow-up activities, such as database and server migration, application migration, and creating various IT environments, are discounted by 50%.

If you decide to migrate your workloads to AWS after the ACE program, you'll receive a 25% discount on your AWS bills for any newly migrated workload during the first 36 months.

Interested in ACE?

Ankercloud's ACE Program, in collaboration with AWS, offers an ideal way to explore the cloud as the next step in your IT or product expansion and scaling plans. You can make this decision with an experienced external partner, potentially at zero cost.
