TUI & Dashmote, Travel The World Through Images!

They say "an image is worth a thousand words" and at Dashmote we took this literal and try to go beyond simple images and get the perfect insights from every pixel.  We are not the ones to look back because we believe that in order to innovate you always have to think about the future but today we had the chance to see the finished work with one of the biggest travel companies in the Netherlands TUI. Our project took us through 80 different travel destinations and after more than 10.000 images selected, we are proud to see the end output come through the hands of the very talented design department of TUI. The project provided us with a very concrete example of how insights can be transformed into images and vice versa. We are certain that the images selected by us have a positive impact on the TUI customer experience and glad that we managed to collaborate with a company that takes visuals to a superior level of professionalism.  Through the initial analysis of the brand style of TUI and input of the imagery guidelines of the brand, we were able to create an algorithm that helped in the selection process of the images. The selection algorithm helped surface the perfect TUI image for each of the travel destination, enabling our team to cover a variety places around the globe from Mexico to Thailand and others. Dashmote, turning images into insights!

Dashmote partners with PostNL

Partnerships between big established companies and startups are not that uncommon but providing innovative solutions is something that is very hard to achieve.

Nonetheless, we are excited to announce that we have partnered with PostNL to offer to the customers of the innovative Drukwerkservice access to over 300 million stock images. The users of Drukwerkservice can now create their offline promotional campaigns from idealization to the final delivery in the post box of their target audience on one platform. 

The Dutch national Post is known for its appetite to build innovative solutions and this why in a time when all the attention is focus on digital advertising, they have created a tool that focuses on offline advertising. An area which is less crowded and traditionally was available only to big players with big budgets. 

Druckwerkservice offers to small and medium companies an alternative to reach out to prospective customers and experiment with new acquisition channels.

Dashmote Announces API Partnership With INGImages

Dashmote Announces API Partnership With INGImages

AMSTERDAM, 07 October 2015 - Dashmote signs first official partnership with INGImages, giving its users access to another 4 million carefully edited professional royalty free images. Consumers now save time, money and find more relevant images.

A great start on the road map of Dashmote. Stefan, CFO Dashmote and responsible for partnerships: “INGImages is excited to work with Dashmote because they believe we will disrupt the visual content market by having an unique technology capable of growing the complete market which will benefit both parties”. It works as following: Dashmote is building a smart search with an so-called elastic search, that is connected with the APIs of the image suppliers. This is done through building an API-wrapper around their partners system to be able to call in the images.

Dashmote operates in a market estimated at $4 billion where 500 million images are sold on a yearly basis. Images have a different meaning for different people, this is why Dashmote strides beyond regular keywords and simple visual recognition. Using a mixture of deep learning algorithms and a library of more than 120 million high-quality images, Dashmote is creating a platform which not only recognizes concepts and emotions, but combines them with user information, to generate highly personalized results. The current partnership brings Dashmote closer to it's goal of targeting each stock market segment, starting with the microstock images where INGImages is our first proud partnership. In the upcoming weeks another four partnerships are in the pipeline to be closed.
