Packhelp

We assisted Packhelp — an online platform that enables users to quickly design and order custom branded packaging — by utilizing Augmented Reality to solve their clients’ real problems.

Overview

Background

One of the most challenging problems concerning the Packhelp project was to help their clients better gauge how their products would fit in appropriate boxes before purchasing. Customers asked about this a lot and the company used to send them box samples, which was completely inefficient. Packhelp decided to make use of Apple’s latest AR technology included in iOS 11 to solve this problem.

Approach

 

Our iOS team created an app using ARKit, a new framework that allows users to create augmented reality experiences for Apple mobile devices.

Packhelp is our first application developed exclusively for iOS 11, without any compatibility with previous systems. We wanted to get rid of old habits and embrace some of the new APIs such as the Codable protocol, Safe area-aware layout, and, of course, ARKit. The latter required us to go back to high school and refresh our math skills a little. Eventually, we managed to pack (sic!) it all in a simple, yet very useful app with many custom UI elements.

The app allows users to:

  • discover — browse all available box types and overall dimensions
  • design — browse all of their designs
  • visualize — see box designs come to life using Augmented Reality
  • gauge — use a transparency mode to see which box will fit chosen items
  • compare — compare products in real life and choose the right one

Results

After three months of work, we have created one of the first ARKit e-commerce software solutions on the market. You can simply place a box on your desk and view it from all angles, saving you time and money. The app is also integrated with a web panel so you can log in to visualize your design from the web-app.

Download the app and check out how AR can improve our lives. We can't wait to see how other companies are going to apply it!
