What was the problem?_

Our client has recognized that the process for sending a large number of packages for an average user of the Gebraucht.de is not as seamless as desired. Measuring and picking the right size of the box has generated several problems and inconveniences in the sender-courier service stage. Main troubles were identified mostly around time and money waste:

  • measuring packages manually - time-waste
  • the measurements have to be provided to the parcel service via their portal,  time- waste
  • numerous errors in providing the parcel service with wrong measurements causing the courier to arrive with inappropriate packaging - time and monetary waste

The process had to be streamlined to maximize efficiency.





What we have done_

We created a component for mobile, using ARKit, which allows the user to quickly gather package measurements through the use of Augmented Reality. An intuitive overlay makes it possible to preview and select the optimal box size for shipping the desired contents.

The Augmented Reality Component speeds up the process of measuring the package from 15 minutes into 15 seconds!  An intuitive overlay allows users to preview and select the box size optimal for shipping the desired contents. 



What we have learned_

This project was very much of an experiment, that came into our minds while doing the retro meeting with our client, Gebraucht.de. Since we have been doing a lot of inhouse R&D on Augmented Reality, it became clear to us, that we can use those skills and test the hypothesis that Augmented Reality components can optimize the packaging process for the platform’s users, so we did it, and we have proved the hypothesis right! That was the start of our commercial AR projects!
