Novedge: How does AiHouse work?
Ellis Yeung: Since with AiHouse everything happens on the cloud, you don’t have to worry about hardware setup. Users can quickly design a scene and edit the details with a first-person perspective and can then generate stunning 4K renders in minutes. We offer a drag and drop design interface, along with 10 powerful customization modules. It is even possible to add interactive features on the panoramas to make them more engaging to your clients. Moreover, the panoramas can be easily shared and are mobile-friendly.

Other entities that will totally benefit form AiHouse are furniture companies. Furniture companies can produce refreshing marketing visuals for their target customers so much faster than before. Many furniture stores have already equipped their sales teams with AiHouse because it helps their customers visualize future home in a short time, which significantly increases closing rates. Furthermore, furniture brands can expand their visibility by presenting their products in our library, which is viewed and utilized by all AiHouse users. Finally, even e-commerce businesses can benefit from AiHouse. We are already working on several projects in Europe that would integrate AiHouse with different e-commerce websites. These e-commerce platforms specialize in furniture selling and they are all looking for a solution that can provide their visitors a more engaging online shopping experience. And this is exactly where AiHouse can help. Visitors can go to the e-commerce websites, select the products they are interested in, and play with them in AiHouse. If they are happy with what they are seeing in the renders, they can just place orders directly.
