About the concerns Afflelou Group was trying to figure out when looking for a virtual try-on tool such as Fittingbox
"It was our Marketing Director who decided to implement Fittingbox Advanced Virtual Try-On on our website, to re-place an existing solution that had a lower rendering and lower quality. The solution was not mobile responsive."
"Today, considering that a large part of traffic is on mobiles, it was essential that our virtual try-on technology be compatible on mobiles." relates Thierry PIRES, former Web and Digital Product Director at Afflelou Group.
