Virtual Innovation Store

Cegid, with headquarters in Lyon, provides private companies and the public sector with performance-enhancing cloud management solutions. The Cegid retail business unit offers software solutions to help retailers never miss a sale. To better support customers, Cegid built a real-life innovation store to showcase the latest innovations in software, technology, marketing and hardware. A fantastic resource but located physically in Lyon.

Looking for a solution to virtualise the innovation store and bring more value to the sales conversations using Showpad, Cegid contacted Vintage. Together we set out on a journey to help the Cegid salesforce in their task of convincing retailers.

A virtual store in Showpad

Vintage re-created the innovation store in 3D and used these CG images to build an all-encompassing Experience app in Showpad. The app allows salespeople to enter the app through a lively shopping street and show the different retail solutions Cegid has to offer in a front store as well as a back store. Also, a home shopping section is available. The app includes all assets which are linked to these solutions: brochure PDFs, PPTs, movies etc. These can be sent on the spot to the prospect and followed up using Showpad. A great tool to assist the salesforce in their up-selling tasks! Soon a web version will also be available to cover the online market as well.

2019 SAM award

At Transform 2019 in London, Cegid and Vintage won a Showpad SAM award for this far-reaching Experience app which optimises the advanced buyer experience and pushes the limits of 3D virtualisation.
