The Internet has changed a lot over the past two decades. What appeared to be great technology a decade ago does not even raise an eyebrow today. Technology changes fast. This is especially true on the Internet. One of the best examples of the changing times on the Internet are search engines.
As a platform, the search engine has been a cornerstone of the Internet. Since the inception of the modern Internet, people have been conducting online searches. Millions of people go to search engines or shopping portals on a daily basis to search for information covering a wide range of topics. A few decades ago, just to see search results was exciting. The display provided with the search results was basic. Generally a picture and text was all that was provided, but this was usually okay a decade ago.
However, times have changed. The Internet today is much different than the Internet one or two decades ago. The Internet today is much more than just basic pictures and text. When people are online today, they want much more than basic text and pictures. People want what they typically see offline. People want to see high quality video. They want to hear high quality audio. People want a real world experience in the virtual world of the Internet.
Although technology innovations have allowed many areas of the Internet to provide a near real world experience for people online, one of the areas where technology innovations have been slow to provide a real world experience is online products. In many ways, online products still resemble what the products looked like a decade or two ago.
However, in recent years, several tech startup companies have developed technology that has improved the online product experience for people conducting online searches. The technology is centered on visual search. This technology allows the information provided for online products to be shown in a visual presentation instead of the traditional text and picture format. The visual presentation provides a significantly better online product experience.
Slyce is one of the tech companies that has developed technology that uses the components of visual search. The company integrates aspects of real life objects into online products to offer a visual look that is real life in nature.
Slyce designs software for e-tailers and retailers that focuses on visual search. The software can be used on desktop and mobile devices. While the software is available worldwide, the company has placed a focus on countries where online search is becoming vitally important because of the increase use of e-commerce.
