Since Slyce has bought pounce in order to build an app could work with retailers to gain a sale from product recognition on slyce, one question has been asked. People are wondering whether or not Slyce can take on Amazon Flow. There are always going to be people who have an opinion on the issue. For one thing, it is Amazon that came up with the idea of being able to purchase a product from anywhere at the first sign of recognition. The app has come with a ton of limitations. One of these limitations is that the product has to be in the package so that the smartphone can pick up the logo and other cues in order to find a listing on Amazon. Slyce is trying to work around this issue.
The plan is to take the app a little bit further. The app is supposed to be able to direct the user to a listing on any retailer of the product that it takes the image of. The product does not have to be in the package. This gives it an advantage over Amazon Flow. As a matter of fact, many users would run over to the new Slyce app, especially since it is partnering with as many retailers as it can. After all, even though Amazon has a ton of items, it is still only one retailer. It is good to be able to find other retailers and see what kind of products they have and the condition that they are in.
It is important to note that Amazon Flow is the app that introduced people to the possibility of shopping through image recognition. It has started as a separate app, but it is now part of the main app. Slyce is looking to compete with the 4 year old app and bring something new to customers and retailers alike. The fact that Slyce is going to collaborate with both retailers and customers is one thing that gives it a big edge against Amazon. For one thing, Mark ELfenbein notes that retailers are looking for ways to adapt to the changing ways that consumers are shopping. Slyce is one app that is goign to make it easier for the retailer to adapt to the changing ways of shopping.
