Renault UK has added a bespoke ‘hotspotting’ feature to its website in its quest to give prospective customers a vehicle viewing experience as close to real-life as possible before visiting a dealer.

The car manufacturer, which is using Adobe Scene7 dynamic media solutions, is giving online viewers the opportunity to inspect intricate detail of each car feature up-close:

Renault UK implemented a full suite of rich media applications including videos and zoomable 360 degree rotating images, colour swatching and e-brochures, prior to commissioning Adobe Scene7 to create the hotspot feature.

“Car industry figures show that more than 90% of people research their new car online at some point during the purchase process - so it's imperative to give consumers what they want as quickly as possible,” said Pippa Barron, Internet Publishing Manager at Renault UK. “We believe we are one of few automotive brands giving people the chance to view products they are interested in at such a sophisticated level online.”

Renault UK’s website lets consumers search for new and used cars, view and compare the range as well as book test drives.

Renault UK is also running a retargeting advertising campaign to present repeat visitors to its website with personalised content. Adobe Scene7 is hosting and serving the video for the retargeted banners, which display content most relevant to individual visitors, based on their recent browsing history of the Renault UK website.

The Adobe Scene7 2011 Survey: Digital Marketing in the Next Decade, reveals that multi-media product viewing is the most effective feature deployed by brands and retailers when enhancing the customer experience and driving sales, receiving 39% of the vote. 1,941 people took part.
