Products and Services
Slyce offers clients a wide variety of services and products related to visual search technology. One such product is an application platform called Snap-to-Buy. Consumers can snap a photo of a product and be automatically routed to a website that carries that particular item. Many of Slyce’s clients have this particular technology set up for their websites and online product databases.
Slyce also provides their clients with a Visual Relevancy Engine. This particular program allows consumers to identify products that are contained within pictures on social media sites. Once an object has been identified it can then search through a retailer’s inventory database to determine if they have the same item or something similar.
This company also has software that is designed to tag and display slogans for social media campaigns. They also have physical advertising recognition programs which will allow retailers to print materials and billboards with a mobile photo. Retailers who want to fully develop their online business platform will benefit greatly from the services that Slyce has to offer. Slyce’s clients includes six major US retailers including Neiman Marcus, Photon, Tillys, Screen Vision, Signal 360, Snip Snap, JcPenny’s and shoes.com.
