I am sure many of you out there know about the visual search recognition offered by Slyce. Some of you might have even used it before. Did you know there is going to be mobile options for shoppers and retailers now?
Some of the services are still in beta development; but, they are coming. They are coming quick. Slyce already offers picture value for their clients in either 2D or 3D. Now it’s going to get even better.
Why all the fuss?
Everyone knows the holidays are just around the corner. Retailers are looking to boost sales through online capital. Slyce is also looking to take a cut of the pie.
What can we expect with these new options from Slyce?
1) The scanners. A customer can scan anything from any store, even coupon codes. The scanner will read it to the system and bounce back results. Customers will know exactly when and where they can find certain items. This will cut down on the traffic and road rage of finding the perfect gift.
2) Coupon codes are transferred that much more easily. Just snap a shot of the coupon code. The coupon can be redeemed that much quicker. This is good for those who have coupons which are just about to run out.
What else can be done?
According to the article, consumers can find items that are out-of-stock. If a consumer can’t find a certain item, he/she locate a suitable alternative.
The holidays are gearing up. People are starting to shop earlier and earlier. More and more consumers are looking to buy online, instead of “beating the traffic.” This is why Slyce and retailers are looking to capitalize on visual search.
Many things are still in the works; but, the beginning buzz for all of this sounds very promising. If this turns out to be successful, more retailers might be looking to join the bandwagon. Online is where it’s at now. Brick and mortar stores are slowing becoming a thing of the past. Are you ready to join them?
