Avon Cosmetics Japan has started to analyze the skin of customers using camera mobile phones.
Start-up WisdomTex Inc. provides the service that lets Avon sales people take a camera phone to the customers face and send a photo of the skin to WisdomTex analytics service.
The Service suggests suitable cosmetics from the Avon product line to the sales person on the phone display. This is a great idea, this way Avon does not need to train the sales people in understanding skin conditions and therefore saving them a bundle.
