NEW YORK (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 08, 2019
Perfect Corp., the beauty tech solutions provider behind the world’s leading artificial intelligence applications YouCam Makeup and YouCam Perfect, today announced that it has been selected as winner of the “Beauty Service App of the Year” award from the Independent Innovation Awards Program, the industry’s most robust recognition platform for the innovators and leaders of the Beauty industry.
Perfect Corp. is the trailblazing developer of the industry-leading YouCam suite of apps, providing unique beauty tech solutions to brands, retailers, and content creators, and offering beauty lovers around the world a hyper-realistic, personalized virtual beauty shopping experience. The solutions have transformed the beauty game by marrying the highest level of artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), machine learning, and facial recognition technologies with the ultimate shopping experience, completely reinventing the online-to-offline (“O2O”) consumer beauty journey.
The Perfect Corp. difference lies in the hyper realistic virtual effects that are based on decades of machine learning algorithms that ensure a virtual experience rivals that of a physical one. The YouCam 106-point 3D facial mapping, skin tone matching, and adaptive lighting deliver results in .04 seconds and a 98.5% precision rate matching the exact color and finish of more than 130,000 products. This level of accuracy has enabled brands and beauty lovers to rely on YouCam technology as a means of helping them make more confident purchase decisions, driving a >30% CTR in ecommerce, 40% conversion rate increase and 8% decrease in returns.
In addition to the free consumer app, YouCam follows a SaaS business model, offering customized beauty tech solutions to brands across all consumer touchpoints: online, mobile, and brick and mortar. Brands have the option to be integrated into the consumer app experience via product listings or branded looks, to help connect with YouCam’s robust global userbase (over 750 million downloads). They offer custom licensing solutions that enable brands to utilize YouCam’s unparalleled beauty technology and customize its functionality with their own look and feel to be seamlessly integrated into their current customer flow. This includes in-store displays for virtual try-on in physical locations, web CM integration for online shopping, and mobile app creation. Their newest offering, “YouCam for Web”, is a self-service subscription solution catering to the growing demand of small and medium businesses looking to leverage advanced AI and AR beauty tech solutions across their e-commerce experience.
Perfect Corp. also offers virtual Augmented Reality Training (A.R.T.) as a training tool for brands to connect employees and teams all over the globe via private virtual trainings, a feature that Estee Lauder has been relying on heavily for internal education.
