SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AI?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#AIlt;/agt;–ViSenze,
the artificial intelligence company powering visual commerce, today
announced 2018 growth, which put the company at the front edge of the
visual commerce industry. Founded in 2012, ViSenze is experiencing

the company’s growth is due to partnerships with smartphone
manufacturers, as well as retailers and brands worldwide. With
inspiration transpiring from primary sources of influence like social
media or in everyday life prompting rapid
growth in the usage of visual search
, ViSenze is uniquely able to
deliver against the rising global demand with its suite of solutions.

ViSenze’s latest partnership with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. in
Southeast Asia and Oceania is the result of an extensive collaboration
between the smartphone manufacturer and the AI technology provider. By
integrating ViSenze’s advanced visual search capabilities, Samsung
equips its mobile consumers in the Southeast Asia and Oceania region
with a way to easily discover and purchase products using Shopping by
Bixby Vision on various Samsung mobile devices. This is made possible by
ViSenze’s automated visual commerce technology, which has the accuracy
and speed required to meet consumers’ personalized shopping demands.

“Consumers are exposed to countless products in their everyday lives
that inspire and empower them to explore new trends. Samsung is one of
the first major companies to capitalize on this, recognizing how
essential it is to ensure the path from discovery to purchase is
effortless,” said Oliver Tan, CEO, ViSenze. “At ViSenze we work globally
with some of the largest brands and retailers. Coupling this knowledge
with our market-leading visual commerce technology, we are able to
provide our partners with the insights and capabilities they need to
find success with visual search and the commerce it’s driving each day.”

Leveraging ViSenze’s advanced visual commerce technology, partners such
as Samsung can offer users a seamless shopping experience by allowing
products to be discovered through images captured on mobile devices and
to be purchased via mobile transactions. Visual commerce solutions
enable mobile shoppers to seize inspirational moments instantaneously by
enabling them to find the same or visually similar products directly on
their devices from top retailers such as Rakuten, Urban Outfitters,
Zalora, and more.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with one of the leaders in visual
commerce technology, and making even more things happen for consumers in
the Southeast Asia and Oceania region,” said Christopher Tarr, Head of
Mobile Services & Partnerships, Samsung Southeast Asia & Oceania.
“Thanks to ViSenze, customers in this region can now take mobile
shopping to new heights via Shopping by Bixby Vision, which makes
shopping easier than ever, via your camera. From inspiration to instant
gratification – it is that simple.”

To date, fashion is the most common use case of visual search
technology, yet, ViSenze has found that the technology is applicable to
multiple categories including home decor, food and beverage, and more.
