iRise, a provider of visualization solutions, has launched pre-configured business software visualization templates aimed at e-commerce retailers designing and delivering innovative new online shopping solutions.
According to the company, by jump-starting the visualization, testing and approval of these solutions with consumers, business owners, and technology partners before coding, retail companies can get to market in a fraction of the time, with less cost and risk. Retail companies can also improve conversion rates, ticket sizes and overall customer experience by iterating proposed designs directly with consumers before final specifications are set.
Using the iRise eRetail templates as a starting point, product managers and user experience professionals can customize the design and interaction of these features to match the unique requirements of the company. iRise Professional Services can also provide templates customized to meet a company’s specific needs, upon request.
Real-life data such as images, product names, pricing and customer information, can be imported into the simulation, bringing the visualization to life and giving stakeholders the ability to fully experience the proposed system early in the process. The simulations can be reviewed directly with business owners, ensuring that the visualization converges to the right business needs.
Simulations can also be used to conduct in-person or remote focus group and user testing to validate that proposed product enhancements will meet customer needs and improve customer experience prior to finalizing the design and requirements for development. Downstream organizations like development, QA, sales and marketing can use the high fidelity visualization to get started on their work early, ensuring delivery of an eRetail solution that is sure to be a success, said iRise.
Mitch Bishop, chief marketing officer of iRise, said: Retailers now have a very interesting way of accelerating online innovation by simulating first. For years iRise has provided the ultimate solutions for visualizing software before you code. Now we’re building on that leadership by delivering content to vertical markets that will revolutionize the way that companies design, test and deliver successful business solutions.
