What was the problem, challenge or
objective?

Octagon
have a lot of international clients based overseas, and also very busy,
time-challenged prospective purchasers living here in the UK, so being able to
offer a virtual tour and a lifelike perspective of the homes is a great tool. Clients
can ‘preview’ the property before committing to a physical viewing.

After
trialling the virtual reality technology at Bishops Row in Fulham, Octagon were
delighted with the result - the images were bright, clear and the system was
easy to use. 

What was the solution / products
taken?

Octagon have a reputation of being
bespoke, luxurious and innovative, completing their homes with contemporary
interiors that feature the latest gadgets and appliances. A great way to
showcase this was by using a 3D walkthrough, a feature that attaches to the
online homeowner portal, Spaciable. 

Homebuyers
can log in to the portal, where they are able to access detailed information on
their new home, as well as view a dollhouse image and floorplan from a 360˚
angle.  The technology encourages homeowners
to re-engage with Octagon’s brand and acts as an excellent referral tool, as
family and friends of the buyer take the impressive virtual tour through the
property.

The
dollhouse and floorplan view of Bishops Row now sits proudly on Octagon’s
website, acting as a sales and marketing tool for new properties.
