Founded by Eduardo Rivara, Mariano Costanzo (OLX), and Kostya Kostyushko (OLX) in Santiago, Chile, Facenote provides facial recognition software for brick and mortar retail locations. In today’s era of personalization, instant customer recognition is critical and Facenote’s solution allows you to do it seamlessly. Its software requires only 8 seconds to train and it analyzes 68+ points per face.
You may be thinking that privacy is a concern with an application like this. Facenote has already addressed this by having all customers opt in by providing a selfie initially, typically combined with a special offer. Retail store associates are now able to provide tailored recommendations at a store level based on their preferences, purchasing behavior, style, and more. The best part of it all – the location only needs a camera; forget all that expensive hardware.
