Some of the products Slyce has to offer are Snap-To-Buy, Snap-To-Discover, Snap-To-List, and Snap-To-Coupon apps. If a customer sees someone walk by who is wearing an outfit or accessory that they like, they can snap a picture of it with the cellphone and get information about the product, including the bar code listing for it, and then they can buy the same product online.
Slyce is now partnering with Shoe Carnival. Last month, they released a new 3D visual mobile search app. All the customer has to do is snap a picture of any kind of footwear that they see in their own world, in magazines, and even on billboards. Shoe Carnival will supply information about an exact match of the shoe or something close to the chosen style. Shoe Carnival is based in Evansville IN. One of the largest shoe companies in the United States, it has 400 stores that are in business in 34 states and in Puerto Rico. Kent Zimmerman, VP of eCommerce, is thrilled with the new partnership.
