About VizSeek Company Accounts

VizSeek is a cloud solution for visual search. Companies can use VizSeek’s visual search for their own products or 3D models by subscribing to VizSeek and uploading their product or design data. Some examples of how they might use the visual search are:

  • For e-commerce: Companies can upload their product catalogs to VizSeek to make them searchable with just a photo
  • For customer service: Companies can upload their product or design data to VizSeek and their customer service personnel can search with photos sent by customers.
  • For design reuse: Companies can upload their 3D models or 2D drawings and then engineering or sales can search for similar designs for re-use or quoting purposes.

We make the visual search available in one package:

  • Get your own private, dedicated site on VizSeek where you can search your products or designs, or use our APIs to put visual search on your own website or mobile app.
We give you the option to choose which VizSeek algorithm best fits your files. By default, your files will use the our base algorithm. These are special algorithms that can be used if your files fit into a specific case:
  • 2D objects (for example, tiles, paintings, fabric, stamps).
  • Cylindrical with a unique feature on one end. Choose this if your files are cylinders that 1.) are in line with one of the axes, 2.) are longer than the diameter, and 3.) have a unique feature at one end of the cylinder.
  • Cylindrical with a unique feature on both ends. Choose this if yor files are cylinders that 1.) are in line with one of the axes, 2.) are longer than the diameter, and 3.) have a unique feature at both ends of the cylinder.

Uploading products or files

From VizSeek.com, sign in and click the Add link at the top of the screen. You’ll be taken to a page where you can download our desktop app for easy uploading and syncing of products or files.

You’ll use the desktop app for uploading, editing, or deleting all product and file data.

If you just need to upload one product or file at a time, use the link at the bottom of the Upload page for manually uploading products or files. Manually added product or file information can be edited directly in VizSeek.

Indexing

Once you upload your products or files, the indexing process will begin immediately. How long it will take depends on the file type. Images index more quickly than 3D models. Once the files are indexed, you’ll start to see them when you search in your company’s search page.
