SUNNYVALE, California, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

eInfochips' EzVisual Search, a Content-based Image Retrieval (CBIR) Engine, can Recognize Images From the Background and Identify Attributes Like Color, Shape, Size, and Proportions. 

eInfochips, a leading Product Engineering and Software R&D services firm, in an engagement with DirectBuy, has developed a powerful new solution to help consumers shop in more convenient ways. EzVisual Search helps end users to conveniently find products on the e-retailer website while greatly reducing the search time. It is designed to make the overall product discovery and shopping experience simpler and faster for the end users. Buyers simply have to use their smartphones to click a picture, upload it to the Ecommerce search app, and find the exact or closest possible matches available with the e-retailer.

DirectBuy attributes more than $2 million in sales to the visual search technology enabled through its recently launched "I Want That" feature in its app. Visual/Image search holds special significance for Ecommerce industry as customers are increasingly driven by impulse decisions based on products they have seen in real life, where text-based descriptions are becoming an outdated approach. With visual search enabled, the entire surroundings will become a large visual showroom for the consumers to shop. An ecommerce user can simply snap and shop anytime with the application enabled in their mobile app.

"eInfochips has pioneered in building deep machine learning algorithms to interpret the meaning and context of images and to drastically reduce the time gap between desire and decision in the Ecommerce buying cycle," said Parag Mehta, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer at eInfochips. "EzVisual Search enables search beyond the metadata, thereby reducing the user dependent terminologies for displaying relevant results."
