A better way to shop for DIY-parts
The Home Depot is the worlds biggest DIY company. They carry out more than 1.8 billion customer transactions per year. Most of them in the shop, but more and more of them online through their web shop and mobile app.
The Home Depot introduced Partium's Visual Search to give mobile App users a new and exciting way to shop for DIY components. Customers can simply snap a picture of a product they are interested in and Partium's Visual Search instantly searches The Home Depots extensive catalog for that exact product.
We have seen significant growth since we first introduced visual search. Once we found there was strong customer adoption and were comfortable with how effective the recommendations were for the products we made it much more prominent in the app.
