Three reasons to recommend RICOH THETA for vehicle PR

1. Showing the vehicle interior in greater detail

Since you can show in fine detail how the interior looks with a 360-degree image, it makes it easier for customers to solidify an image in their mind of how it actually looks. It is easy to show the charm of the vehicle even online. You can also introduce vehicles held at other sites to the customer when they visit your dealership.

2. Easy to shoot photos quickly even for a beginner photographer

Since it is possible to easily shoot an image of the entire vehicle interior, shooting is complete in a short time. You can also shoot using a self-timer or remotely. Shooting can be performed quickly even if you have a lot of vehicles, which enables you to lower the cost of shooting them.

3. Reducing man-hours of sales representatives

You can eliminate the problem of customers who say “I don’t know which car to buy unless I test drive a lot of them.” because they can check and view every corner of the vehicle interior. This enables you to reduce test drives that have a low chance of generating a successful sale and save time.
