Allied adds 360-degree product spin feature online


Allied Electronics & Automation is adding product images with a 360-degree spin to its website to help design engineers and maintenance and repair operators find the exact products for their design specs and repair needs. 

“We are one of the first online automation and control distributors using this exciting technology,” said Stacey Ostermann, Allied Director of Digital Content. “By posting spinning images to the product pages on our website, we are confirming to our customers that what they see on-screen is exactly what comes out of the box when the product is delivered.”

Allied contracted with Snap36, a provider of comprehensive 360-degree and 3D imagery, to improve a customer’s online shopping experience. Snap36 automates image capture with robotic equipment and workflow software, creating high-quality, high-resolution images for customer viewing.

“This is another step in our journey to create the best online experience for our customers,” said Dan Stewart, Allied VP of eCommerce and Marketing. “We know that images are particularly important to the experience our customers have online, and we are leading the way with the most advanced technology available.”
