Visual search is something that is proving to be very beneficial for everyone. Visual search is especially helpful for retail. There are plenty of people that are looking for a certain product that they like but can’t seem to find. People often have to deal with the frustration of trying to find out what a certain item is that they saw. It could be that they seen the item at some place they were visiting, or that they were looking at an ad and saw an item other than what was being advertised. Either way, they wanted that item. However, they can’t find it because they can’t figure out the search terms.
Fortunately, there is Slyce. Slyce is visual search technology that makes it easier for people to find what they are looking for. The technology can be downloaded to the smartphone or tablet. Then the user could find a product that they are interested in and take a picture. Slyce will give a lot of information about the item in the image which includes the cost, the material, and the store that it is available in. Slyce also refers people to similar products. Therefore, they may find something that they like better than the initial product.
Slyce also makes things easier for retailers. When customers visit a retailer looking for a certain item, they often times just leave the store if they don’t find the item. However, Slyce and visual search technology not only lets people know where the product is, but also lets people know of alternatives in the store in case they might want to buy something else. Often times, the alternatives are inexpensive and even more visually appealing than the initial offer. Either way, Slyce will bring in more sales for the retailer. As a result, both the retailer and the customer are satisfied.
