Omni Talk Spotlight Series: Today’s Guest Ted Mann, CEO of Slyce

Today, we are excited to introduce our Omni Talk Spotlight Series, where we go deep with the key leaders and companies that we believe could shape how the future of retail will unfold.

We are excited to welcome our first guest to the seriesTed Mann, the CEO of Slyce.

Slyce is a visual search company that helps retailers and consumers find products in a snap. With Slyce visual search, users can find the inspiring products they see in the world, in photos, or in catalogs with the simple press of a button. If you have ever used the camera icon in a retailer’s app, chances are you have used Slyce’s technology. Their client roster includes 35 retailers, with the likes of Macy’s, Home Deport, Best Buy, and more.

We interviewed Ted right on the trade show floor at Shoptalk, and our interview with him is available now on iTunes and on SoundCloud or by clicking below.

While Slyce mainly conducts B2B business, they also have many B2C capabilities that highlight exactly what they do and where the future of retail is going. If you are interested in trying out any of Slyce’s cool consumer-facing technologies at home, you can find links to their applications below:
