“We recognize that shoppers now demand a more dynamic digital product experience when making a purchase decision, and the next frontier to enable this experience is 3D Visual Configuration, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Photography,” says Matt Gorniak, CEO of Threekit. “The Threekit platform has already driven over $1 billion in sales for both our B2C and B2B customers this year. This investment further powers our tremendous opportunity to grow in step with our customers.”
Shoppers want a better online experience
In 2022, it’s estimated that $7.4T worth of B2C and B2B commerce will happen digitally and shoppers are searching for a more effective way to experience products online and buy with confidence. Traditional product photography can’t deliver. Threekit’s visual commerce platform automates the creation of 2D, 3D, and AR visuals and enables product configuration. With Threekit, shoppers can customize, zoom-in, rotate, add-parts, and more for eCommerce, sales, and service. The merchants that provide shoppers with this experience will win big. Customers like California Closets are a great example of this promise coming to fruition.

3D/AR helps brands differentiate and break down silos
Having a digital version of the product is also proven to lead to breakthrough productivity gains for Threekit customers. Brands can prototype without actually making a physical product. They can email out millions of personalized products based on individual preferences, and put one product into multiple scenes without doing photoshoots.
“Our customers are using the platform to get an edge in a new frontier,” continued Gorniak. “They’re designing and prototyping faster and with less waste, manufacturing more efficiently, and gaining a deeper understanding of market demands.”
“There’s a massive shift happening in the world of commerce,” said David Stein, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Leaders Fund and founder of Rypple (acquired by Salesforce). “Shoppers are demanding more engaging and interactive digital product experiences when making decisions—be it in the form of 3D Visual Configuration or AR—and the brands and manufacturers who provide this experience will capture customer loyalty, increased sales and market leadership. This offering has moved very quickly from a nice to have to a must-have.”
