Slyce is the market leader in the emerging technology of image recognition and visual search. The company was launched four years ago with a goal of becoming the world leader in visual search. Over that time, we raised more than $40MM, built out our technology and service offering, acquired four companies and signed deals with 15 of the leading retailers in the United States including Best Buy, Home Depot, Nordstrom, and Urban Outfitters. We are a bright and highly motivated team with ambitious goals which are excited to drive our cutting-edge technology out to the marketplace and have fun doing it.
Our technology allows consumers snap a photo or scan an image with their smart phones and purchase that item with a single click. The focus of our approach is to take our core services and white label our technology into retailers’ apps and mobile web. We also drive experiences with our core consumer apps, including SnipSnap, which reaches more than 5 million monthly users.
