3-DEE’s story started at Sophia’s previous job. After graduating in business communication, Sophia worked for a car importer, where she was responsible for the dealership and after-sales communication in Belgium and Luxembourg.
As with most industries, the COVID-pandemic hit car dealerships, and like other businesses, they had to close their showrooms overnight. As part of Sophia’s responsibilities, she collected the best practices from all dealerships to share these with the rest of the network. At that point, Sophia saw that one of the dealerships had made a virtual tour. She was impressed and called the dealership to ask what he thought about it and if he was happy with the results. She was surprised when he told her he would not do it again as the virtual tour only allowed people to see the different cars without knowing which model they were looking at, what options were available, which tires were on the car, etc. So basically, it gave the customer the same experience as if they would see a car in the street.
Sophia is passionate about marketing and is an innovator in trying new marketing & communication tools. She wanted to find a supplier who could give that extra dimension to the customer experience and that would accelerate the sale process by interactively answering the customers’ basic questions. That’s why she asked her younger brother Sebastian, the techy one in the family, to help her find the right supplier for the dealerships. While digging deeper and trying to find the right supplier, they quickly concluded that no one could do it with the features that allowed the virtual tour to be personalized. So, Sebastian discovered how virtual tours were made and gave Sophia all the tools to do it herself. Sophia did not need much conviction to jump into this new adventure.
While starting the business and speaking with many prospects, customers, mentors, business coaches, businesspeople, and others, it became clear that virtual tours can go much further than just the customer experience. It also became clear that one virtual tour can be used as a basis to create multiple other ones for other purposes. It can also save people’s lives by using it for safety drills or help attract and find the right employees and improve the onboarding process for many companies. It can even be used as a product placement tool that boosts partnerships’ online visibility while boosting a company’s visibility and advertising in an interactive way.
