Syte Launches Hyper-Personalization Solution for E-commerce Brands

Syte | December 16, 2020

Syte, the world's first item disclosure stage, declared today the official launch of its hyper-personalization solution to expand normal order value and change rate for eCommerce brands and retailers universally. The exclusive technology consolidates visual AI with two ground-breaking neural organizations to distinguish and prescribe the items destined to change over progressively.

"Retailers have always known that personalization is fundamental to providing the optimal customer experience, generating more sales, and increasing customer retention, but current algorithms are highly flawed," said Syte CEO and Co-founder, Ofer Fryman. "Conventional personalization engines enable segmentation, rather than true personalization, relying on generic algorithms that aren't customized to individual shoppers. With hyper-personalization, we are able to provide individualized, relevant recommendations in real-time, and this is what makes Syte's offering so unique and powerful."

Conventional personalization motors take data about a customer  for example, age, area, and gender and run it through measurable calculations that have been created dependent on the data of thousands of different clients. Accordingly, customary personalization doesn't create new signals, nor would it be able to suggest at no other time bought things.

Syte's hyper-personalization solution goes past the division of conventional personalization to give genuinely pertinent item suggestions to every individual customer. Syte accomplishes hyper-personalization through conveying the accompanying advances:
  • Visual-AI-powered engagement analytics: Adds a unique layer of product meta-tags to standard engagement data, allowing every event and interaction to be deeply analyzed and understood.
  • Recurrent parallel neural networks: Calculates and identifies a unique shopper's real-time intent to provide optimal shopping recommendations in a split second.

The hyper-personalization solution utilizes equal repetitive neural organizations to consolidate website performance data with current meeting data and constant client conduct, surfacing the most applicable items for every customer. The organization's visual AI technology guarantees that the items suggested adjust straightforwardly with customers' interesting stylish tastes dependent on pictures they've cooperated with already. Rather than gathering website guests into fragments and presenting famous things for each gathering, Syte empowers brands and retailers to tailor and adjust those proposals, regularly surfacing at no other time suggested things since they're a decent counterpart for a given customer, which thus drives change and builds normal order value.

About Syte
Syte is the world's first product discovery platform. Powered by visual AI, Syte is spearheading the evolution of eCommerce by enabling brands and retailers to seamlessly connect shoppers with products they love. Their solutions, including camera search, augmented site search, recommendation engines, and smart in-store tools, empower shoppers to discover and purchase products instantly and intuitively.
