98% accurate Image Recognition

Fast, accurate recognition of real world objects such as consumer packaged FMCG products, marketing and in-store collaterals, product catalogs, etc. Scan and recognize thousands of objects instantly.

It provides 20% better recognition accuracy than our competitors – even with non-optimal light, surface, angle or distance to object. Read all about our benchmarked image recognition technology.

Choose where to run and how to deliver the content

Depending on your use case, you may want your app to run by searching in the cloud, or locally offline, independently of Internet connectivity.
Our toolbox allows you to choose openly.

Cloud-based

Every scan is sent to the cloud for Image Recognition.

Any update in the CMS is immediately available to all users.

On-Device

Every scan runs totally offline. Content can be stored on the device or streamed from the cloud.

Apps can be distributed with an embedded database or download it at first launch.

Any change in the database requires the app to connect to the Internet and synchronize with our CMS to fetch the changes.

Extended Search

In apps that have a certain amount of objects that are frequently requested, it can be convenient to

  1. run first on-device on a subset of the database and
  2. then continue searching in the cloud.

The local set can be fixed by tagging individual items that we want the device to have. Read the documentation about Tags in the Management API.

3

Upload and create content using our
Content Management System

Our service comes with an extremely agile cloud-based content management system. You can refresh content associated with your image recognition experiences as often as you like. Update offers, add more images, and extend product-related content,
as well as edit your experiences.

Simple text or URL

In many use cases, you want to show a customized text, trigger a follow-up event, or simply link each object to a URL, for instance of a product page.

Management API

With our RESTful API your backend service can directly inject new content or update existing one into our CMS. It is designed to perform bulk operations.
