We bridge the gap between artists creating, galleries curating, and people collecting. The way how people view and buy art is changing as a new generation of buyers matures! What happens after a visitor leaves your gallery? You can use e-mails (if you have collected them), advertisements via social media, or simply hope that the visitor decides to return to your gallery voluntarily.
You can only re-engage a small percentage of visitors using these approaches, and it’s costly to get the visibility needed. Use new technologies as a way of engaging new audiences and buyers with iazzu: iazzu has developed the first application that combines browsing art with Augmented Reality, enabling a seamless customer experience, and allowing art enthusiasts to visualize how artworks will look in their home or office space prior to purchase.
The app gives your customers the tools to find your gallery—your branded app gives you the tools to bring them back in. You can list your current & past exhibitions, art fairs, the info about the exhibited artists and artworks.
