CarSwitch integrated with Cappasity 3D technology for remote used car demonstration

CarSwitch specialists can now share 3D visualizations of used cars on the platform, and buyers have the ability to examine vehicles as they would offline from the comfort of their own home. To scan a car in 3D, CarSwitch specialists use the 3DShot application developed by Cappasity.

A 3D visualization of a car helps the consumer see it from all perceptual angles and check out every little detail, bridging the gap between viewing a car online and offline. The ability to examine a car like in real life is particularly important for used car buyers. By interacting with a 3D demonstration of a used car, the consumer will be able to notice even hidden damage to the vehicle, see tiny chips, dents, scratches on the car and choose a used car online with confidence. Consumers will get more information about the external condition of the car, which will save a lot of time for specialists and CarSwitch customers.

CarSwitch is an online marketplace for selling and buying certified used cars in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. For used car sellers, the platform supports inspection, warranty, photography, advertising, call collection, screening of potential buyers, participation in test drives, document management and transfer of ownership. Certified specialists manage the entire process of selling a car, while the seller only sets the price of the vehicle. For buyers, CarSwitch provides 200-point inspection results online. Additionally, used car buyers can now review vehicles on the platform by interacting with immersive content.

The 3DShot application allows CarSwitch specialists to create interactive 3D visualizations of cars in minutes. To create a 3D view (data format developed and patented by Cappasity), a CarSwitch specialist simply needs to launch the vehicle capture mode in the app and move around in the vehicle. 3DShot automatically creates a 3D view that can be integrated into the CarSwitch platform.

“Until recently, immersive content creation was unavailable to most car dealerships, marketplaces, and private used vehicle sellers. The 3DShot app and Cappasity platform solves this problem by enabling n “Anyone to create interactive content with a regular smartphone. We have developed an efficient solution to create interactive 3D views of vehicles and are happy to provide this new tool to CarSwitch”, commented Kosta Popov, CEO of Cappasity.

“CarSwitch is on a mission to make buying used cars as smooth as possible. Cappasity’s 3D Views seemed like a great opportunity to give our buyers an unparalleled car navigation experience, so we decided to give it a go. So far, the response from our users has been great – cars with 3D views get much higher engagement and interest from buyers.The process of capturing the 3D shot is also simple and we were able to roll it out in the UAE and Saudi Arabia in just a few weeks,” comments Mohammad Ali Raahim, CarSwitch Product Manager.
