Consider design changes easily from your desk

Providing retail store viewings virtually, StoreView® 360 virtual tours add clarity and context for the project team considering potential changes in store from the comfort of their desks.

Teams can discuss potential changes in branding, formats and layouts using our immersive 3D virtual store experience and evaluate the return on capital investment programmes.

StoreView® offers to:

  • Facilitating the design review and sign-off process
  • Demonstrating how new signage, layout or format will look
  • Showing before and after changes with a split-screen

Adding clarity to retail store design decisions

Virtual retail store visits with our tool aids your decision-making process by allowing teams to remotely review, demonstrate and communicate proposed changes to your retail store. Easy to use and accessible, StoreView® is a valuable tool for a wide range of internal retail departments.

“StoreView® brings our stores to life, and with these superior visuals we can now make more informed decisions during our scheme approval meetings, saving costs on unnecessary work as well as time visiting site.”

Non-invasive process with no in-store disruption

We create the StoreView® model from an as-built 360 panoramic photographic recording of your store and external facades. The survey process is non-invasive and is easily undertaken during store opening hours, with little or no disruption to staff or customers. To further minimise in-store impact, the process can be undertaken out of hours if required.

Working together with you

We work with you to agree on the programme and identify locations in-store to ensure all necessary information is captured.


View your retail store anytime, anywhere

You can view your StoreView® on any web-enabled device and there are no additional software installation requirements or licensing issues.

Navigating virtually around a store is quick and simple. When using a mobile phone or tablet the accelerometer features automatically give users a more engaging 360 degree experience. StoreView® is compatible with VR headsets.

Model data that is GDPR compliant & owned by you

You can access your virtual store 360 via our portal or via StoreSpace®, enabling you to virtually visit the stores as you are physically planning them.

Once your portal is created, the StoreView® model data belongs to you and you’ll have no restriction to access. Unlike other virtual store viewings, we blur faces and car registration numbers so you can rest assured that your data is GDPR compliant.
