Product optimization cases solved by Optopus

A clear example of Optopus’ work is the case of Beam Suntory. The company chose the use of CGI, modeling the brand’s products in 3DThanks to the use of this, a world of possibilities has been opened, such as 360º turns of the product, 3D videos and even virtual reality experiences.

On the other hand, we find the case of taurus, whose objective was to redesign the presentation of its Mycook range of household appliances based on the key drivers that captured the consumer. To do this, Optopus identified the unique features of the range, what set it apart and what drove consumers to buy it, and determined its hierarchy.

After this, he studied whether this data was communicated effectively in the product presentation, since information is often diluted because the product design is not optimized to be displayed on a “digital shelf” and its key data is not visible. . The next step was to use the AI to analyze what information stood out to the consumer.

Once all the necessary information was collected, they developed a redesign of the Mycook presentation optimized for digital showcases.
