Meet augmented reality, your new personal shopper

The timing was right,” says Meghna Saraogi, the co-founder and CEO of StyleDotMe, an augmented reality (AR) SaaS company whose AR tech platform, mirrAR, helps shoppers try on jewellery virtually. The software—launched in 2017 as an in-store solution for inventory management—came up with a web version in January 2020. Less than three months later, the country went into lockdown. “Stores were shut and the only brands that could connect with customers were those that had an online presence,” she says. Even initially hesitant jewellers began reaching out to Saraogi, asking her to integrate AR into their websites, enabling their customers to try on jewellery online.

Outplay Raises USD 7.3 Million To Make Outbound Sales Scalable

Businesses today rely on a combination of inbound and outbound sales models to drive revenues. While the inbound sales process has rapidly evolved over the last decade, outbound sales hasn’t. Outbound sales teams typically use high-volume tactics to drive revenue. But this approach isn’t scalable and the revenue eventually becomes a function of the size of the outbound sales team. This is because outbound sales teams don’t have a data-driven approach for targeting prospects that are most likely to convert and end up spending time emailing or cold-calling hundreds of prospects hoping to convert a few.
