iTraff Technology LLC today officialy announced the market release of http://www.Recognize.im, a mobile and web-based image recognition platform that enables e-commerce, retail, and marketing industries to quickly integrate image recognition into their applications and create mobile shopping experiences and advertising campaigns.
With Recognize.im, e-commerce businesses gain access to powerful mobile image recognition to leverage the growing trend of virtual stores and mobile-based purchases. Publishers, distributors, and advertisers can empower their applications to recognize real-life objects, graphics, posters, newspapers, or TV displays, turning every smartphone into smart ad space. The introduction of Recognize.im marks the latest expansion by iTraff Technology to mobilize the image recognition space, and help businesses to effectively engage with their customers on-the-go.
