Problem or Opportunity
In an era where instant gratification is a norm, consider a walk down a street and seeing a product in a shop window or in hands of a stranger that invokes an instant interest in you to either buy for yourself or gift to someone dear. Normal instinct is to click a picture for future reference. Imagine a handy tool that enabled you to transact at that very instant!
Solution (product or service)
We would like to introduce a new genre of commerce – CamCom. The World’s only Camera Commerce platform that bridges in-store Product Discovery experience & ease of Online Purchase using the phone camera.
Gifto uses Computer Vision and other Cognitive algorithms to help identify a merchandisable product whose picture was just taken, provide an unparalleled product discovery experience on your mobile phone and enables instantaneous transaction.
At this time there is no other platform which uses Camera Commerce hence there is no Direct competition
All Online Retailers are potential competitors and also fulfilment partners at the same time
The app can be integrated with all Online Merchants’ Order Management, hence providing additional traffic to the merchant site
Co-optition (Collaborate and Compete) is the ideal mantra to succeed
All Gifting apps, including the Gift Voucher distribution and redemption apps are a competition, playing in the same market place
