You can take a couple of steps into the warehouse on the Google tour and people love it because they can actually see the size of the warehouse and how packed it is with parts and accessories.
Columbiana, OH (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Industry leading provider of aftermarket Jeep parts and accessories, 4WD’s Columbiana, Ohio store recently introduced its Google Virtual Tour feature. This online virtual tour displays the entire layout of the showroom as well as the service bays. Accessible from this Google Maps page, the tour depicts high resolution images of products for off-road Jeeps, allowing users interactivity.
“The employees thought it was a cool new feature for our customers and I’ve heard great feedback from people who came into the store based on things they first saw online,” says Pat Sposato, Sales Representative at the Columbiana store. The location has two Jeeps on display in its showroom and online users can see the possibilities of what their own Jeeps could be transformed into. “After they see the displays on the Web, they come in to see the Jeeps in person,” says Sposato. “They crawl under them to check out the lift kits, axles, and other parts.”
The virtual tour is a perfect way for Jeep owners to see specific brands. They can even enter the service facilities to view Jeeps being worked on and get a sense of the 4WD store premises. Users navigate to zoom in or out and view Jeep products the store carries including:
- Lift kits
The interactivity of the tour is more of a personal experience as opposed to just looking at generic pictures online. “You can take a couple of steps into the warehouse on the Google tour and people love it because they can actually see the size of the warehouse and how packed it is with parts and accessories,” says Sposato.
Google Virtual Tours are a revolutionary way to conveniently access brick and mortar stores online, and competitors such as Pep Boys are not offering this feature of their locations at this time. Users can zoom in and move 360⁰ to interact with a space and specific products. Images browsed appear on Google in searches, maps, and Google+ and can be embedded on business websites and social media pages.
