Doing this enabled him to give each team the responsibility to create and develop new product ideas at a fast yet very consistent pace. By breaking his employees into smaller teams, he was able to accomplish relieving some stress as well as some of the duties he was obligated to at that time. Since Verizon became known as one of the most face paced places to work, the positions there become very high in demand.

According to, a vendor had reported that Shaygan Kheradpir had been working very closely with the senior management team at Coriant during the time he was employed at Marlin Equity Partners. Some sources has also stated that Mr. Shaygan is a recognized business and technology leader who has over 28 years of executive experience across the telecom, technology and financial service industries which is why it was so easy for him to take on a new position at another multi-billion dollar company very quickly.

Over all, Coraint is very happy to have Kheradpir lead their company due to the amount of experience and the success he has brought to some of the companies he managed during his career. Most of his success comes from the strategic insight and guidance on focused operational execution he possess, which of course Coriant sees very valued for future success of their company. So for now, Shaygan Kheradpir will be leading Coriant, the owners, other managers as well as the employees to a brighter future.

Image Recognition Helping Customers Who Are Out Of Luck

Many can relate to the frustration of finding a perfect item online only to find it is currently out of stock. Now, a solution to this problem hopes to keep customers from wanting to “abandon their cart” after receiving an out of stock notification.

Slyce Link
New image recognition technology allowing online retailers to present items similar to those currently out of stock are starting to hit the internet. Slyce Inc., a company that offers image-recognition software, is in beta testing with a certain retail client after a year of development.

Keeping Customers Happy
Market research shows 75%-85% of users leave websites after coming across out of stock notifications. Software able to relate inventory and users together may help businesses from losing those customers by finding realistic alternative choices.

Slyce Link’s Future
Placing similar items in out of stock situations is not the only way Slyce hopes their software will help other businesses. Retailers now have access to search engines that understand much more about content than previously possible with older search software.

Relying on what a product actually is and not parameters typed into the system will allow for items to be categorized more efficiently for users. Slyce link will allow similar items to be found more efficiently and intelligently. Websites are gaining the ability to see the items that are being sold through actual images, and are learning about the users who buy those items.

Company Behind The Technology
Slyce Inc. creates and works with image recognition software. The programs that Slyce produce have the ability to learn and remember users and images. This technology is allowing for a more fluid user experience. The company is changing the way people shop with apps like Skout from SnipSnap that is able to recognize items and offer lowest prices based on images taken from smart devices.

Slyce is also creating places for people to find the information they want with Flipora. Flipora is a unique way of finding content on the net. Flipora works to learn the user so all the user has to do is click on the site where only relevant articles will be found. Image recognition software is changing the way people internet.
