Neuroscience research shows that consumer product selections are influenced by many visual factors along the shopper journey and especially at the fixture. AcuityVR allows you to directly analyse the key influencers of behaviour and decision-making at every stage of the path-to-purchase offering real-world insight with strong methodologies and without constraining behaviour.

Whether you’re interested in navigation, product standout, point-of-sale messaging or decision making at the fixture, AcuityVR allows you to understand where a shopper’s attention is, and allows you to directly test the key influencers of behaviour and decision making at every stage in the shopper’s journey. AcuityVR leverages the strength of insights that come from testing in immersive environments, and provides the depth of insight of real-world research in an environment you can control and without constraining behaviour.

AcuityVR works with multiple new and existing VR headsets, smoothing the transition from screen based to head-mounted VR. This unique approach maximises existing VR investments by plugging directly into your existing VR provider’s worlds.

AcuityVR has also been designed to integrate with a variety of eye-tracking manufacturers. This unique integration and flexibility enables you to get the benefits of the offering regardless of future developments in technology.

With AcuityVR there is no more waiting for results. Analytics are available immediately for all assets, at every level from store and aisle, to fixture and product. Visualisations include heat-maps, opacity maps, journey mapping and gaze-vector; all of which can be viewed for groups or individuals, on-screen or directly in the VR headset, fully immersing you in the data and generating insights from every point of view.

Our automated analytics provide eye-tracking expertise at the touch of button, that is at least 50% faster and 30% cheaper than using existing methods.
