Recruit’s CarSensor opens virtual showroom
14 Mar 2017
Recruit Holdings understands the art of retaining traffic while grabbing hold of a new stream.
Just recently we reported Recruit’s property vertical Suumo.jp had added VR technology to enable customer interaction. And, now its used-autos site CarSensor.net opened a virtual showroom for Japanese SUV fans.
Smartphone users can now look at a 360-degree view of autos listed on CarSensor. With a smartphone-mounted virtual reality goggle, the user can enjoy simulated experiences of driving a car, see its exterior and interior, and compare specs on-the-go.
Currently, the tool works for 30 models of sports utility vehicles (SUVs). CarSensor catalogues a huge database of 2,500 models.
CarSensor also built out the visual aspect of its desktop site: almost every webpage now carries sleek video footage, to let you linger for a while, even if you just wanted to be in and out.
