Omnichannel. A recent buzzword that’s hard to escape, no matter the conversation. Regardless of the perspective, at its core the meaning is simple. Put the shopper at the center of everything you do.. For example, why do consumers have to choose between online and in-store? Between printed coupons and mobile ones? Why can’t they just see an offer they like and redeem it anywhere they want? Truth is they can, and the power to do so is already in their wallets.
Retailers use beacons to converge existing foot-traffic. Setmusic uses beacons to drive entirely new foot-traffic. By making exclusive music or free bitcoin unlock-able at retail locations, Setmusic creates an enjoyable "ad" experience for app users while delivering foot-traffic to retailers at a predetermined price.

The Bottom Line
We have a panel of millions of US devices that allow us to collect data on over 100 million restaurant visits a month. We also process hundreds of thousands of attitudinal and satisfaction responses from our panelists by triggering surveys based on where consumers went. This combination of behavioral and attitudinal data creates a real-time 360 degree view and allows us to build groundbreaking solutions.
Our team of engineers and scientists (including 3 PhD’s) spent years building sensor-fusion technology, which uses the mobile sensors built into smartphones to understand a user’s location and activity. We have trained our algorithms with millions of real-world consumer examples from GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer, wifi, ambient light, and many other sensors. This provides us with an anonymous, but highly accurate understanding of where, how, and when people interact with physical locations and businesses.
Large and representative panel
Our sensor-technology is on nearly one hundred apps and millions of mobile devices in the US. Our panel generates more than a terabyte of sensor data every single day and provides a detailed view of more than 100 million anonymous visits a month. We carefully curate our panel to ensure that it is highly reflective of the general population across geography, gender, ethnicity, age, and household income.
Not just what but also why
We also collect hundreds of thousands of surveys based on the underlying sensor data, allowing us to ask consumers directly why they did something. This allows us to capture attitudinal data such as awareness, reason for visit, and satisfaction. We then combine our survey responses with our behaviorally observed data to understand the full picture.
Accuracy and Validations
We are constantly checking our methodology and our tech for accuracy. We validate accuracy by collecting tens of thousands of responses every week from our users letting us know where they went and comparing to our algorithms. We also validate our data with client transaction data and with reported earnings.
EQ-OS (Emotionally Intelligent Operating System): Market Making Opportunity
Our EQ-OS is a high EQ oriented, first-of-its-kind machine-learning SaaS (software as a service). What makes EQ-OS different than everyone else?
Persistent perception from heterogeneous, distributed and intermittent signals (voice, image, biometric, and sensor communications), so no context, condition nor emotion is missed for each individual.
Guided learning which means that no data scientists are necessary at runtime.
Unique person understandings which means best fit, possibilistic recommendations.
True user opt-in that yields mutually beneficial understandings and relations amongst people, places and things.
EQ-OS aligns long- and short-term goals with true, not general, understandings and relationships @work, @home, @life
SHOP THE WORLD YOU SEE
Discover products in a snap. Use Slyce visual search to find products inspired by the objects you see out in the real world, in print catalogs or in photos.
Snap to Buy
Identify virtually any product in a user generated photograph. Slyce converts a photograph into hyper-specific product descriptions, which are utilized to search a retailer’s product API or product database.
Snap from Catalog
Deliver an exact match to any known reference image, catalog image, or barcode. Simply hover over the item and instantly identify the product with a sub-second response time.
Snap to List
When you're creating a shopping list or wish list or registry, you don't just want to scan and find one item—you may want dozens of them. Snap to List describes a use case where consumers can leverage visual search to find and shop multiple products at one, and dynamically build their shopping list.
Snap to Coupon
Never forget a coupon at home again. Pioneered by Slyce's own SnipSnap app, this use case describes the simple act of scanning a printed coupon in order to transform it to a mobile coupon, saved on your smartphone. Slyce's Coupon Author SDK works hand-in-hand with our Visual Search SDK to power the entire coupon experience, from coupon snap to in-store redemption.
The Visual Search SDK
The Slyce Visual Search SDK is a plug & play mobile solution that wraps many advanced image recognition processes into one simple universal scanner. Offer your customers a new innovative search experience that allows snapping or scanning any object around them to receive immediate exact match or similar results online.
In working with dozens of retailers at Slyce, we’ve found that product search is just one of many visual-search functions that add value to retailer apps. Catalog scanning and barcode scanning are often every bit as useful. Our Software Development Kit combines these and other scanning modes into one unified camera class. Your users can access all the functionality simply by tapping on the camera icon in your app. Our SDK seamlessly handles barcodes, QR codes, coupons, and any real world image. Your users can access all the functionality simply by tapping on the camera icon in your app.

VIVEAT ANTI-COUNTERFEITING SOLUTION
Every product protected by our anti-counterfeiting system is associated to a unique Dynamic Digital Identity generated by the Viveat platform. The DDI is to be considered the digital counterpart of a specific item, it’s non replicable, localized in cloud and accessible via web. The platform automatically generates for every DDI a unique serial URL (gateway to the DDI) and a unique random alphanumerical code (the ID code of the item). Every Viveat labeled product shows on it’s packaging both the URL (with a QR code or NFC) and the ID code (visible).
The Viveat system offers multiple levels of security based on the technology installed on the packaging.
QR code labels
When a label with QR code is scanned (even with a generic QR reader) the platform:
– compares all the logs associated to the specific DDI verifying any anomaly;
– compares all the logs associated to the specific User verifying any anomaly;
– offers the user a visual check of the ID code associated to the item.
Our QR codes can be printed with several physical anti-counterfeit systems:
– anti-tampering materials;
– 2D and 3D holograms;
– special inks.
The combination of both software and hardware anti-counterfeiting systems assures a good level of security, allowing brands to beware of any effort to duplicate a Viveat label. The platform cannot digitally tell apart an original QR code label from a copied one but it understands when an DDI has been fraudulently replicated. Only a visual check of the physical label can determine whether a label is original or fake.
When using NFC labels every DDI, in addition to the URL and the ID code, is provided with a UID (unique ID of the NFC tag) and an encrypted unique ID (CryptoID) written in the memory of the NFC tag.
When a NFC label is scanned the platform, in addition to the checks listed for QR code labels:
– compares the URL with the UID of the NFC tag;
– decrypts the protected memory of the NFC tag and confronts the CryptoID with URL and UID.
Our NFC tags can be converted to several physical anti-counterfeit supports:
– anti-tampering materials;
– 2D and 3D holograms;
– special inks.
With NFC we reach a high level of security. NFC tags cannot be copied (every tag has by norm a unique UID), the comparison of URL and UID is a solid anti-counterfeiting solution. Since it has been discovered a black market of NFC tags with illegal UIDs we decided to add another level of security by encrypting a code in the memory of the tag. Only our server can read the encrypted data allowing Viveat to be 100% sure that the label hasn’t been copied. With NFC we can also digitally tell which label is original and which label is copied.
