Uniform Pro is a digital measuring, fit and size recommendation system for the uniform industry that has been developed by 3DLook of San Mateo, California.

The AI-powered solution enables uniform manufacturing and rental companies to measure end-wearers remotely, with no need for in-person contact or physical fittings.

“3DLook’s solution helped us eliminate the risk of incorrect hand measurements in order to lower the returns of the pricey radiation protection aprons we produce,” said Murry Pitts, CEO of Burlington Medical. “In addition, it allowed us to keep providing healthcare workers with perfectly fitting garments when fitting sessions were prohibited, and sales reps were not allowed to enter healthcare facilities during Covid-19. The workflow has never been easier – we simply collect body measurements from end-wearers through smartphones, reducing a previously time-consuming and inconsistent measurement process to just 30 seconds.”

The solution has helped Burlington Medical to decrease its return rate by 67% over the last five months.

“We’ve spent the last five years refining our technology that has helped hundreds of fashion brands grow their businesses and reduce returns, while improving the online shopping experience for consumers,” said Vadim Rogovskiy, CEO and co-founder of 3DLook. “We saw enormous demand for a similar solution in the uniform industry and have leveraged all of our experience to deliver this solution that enables a shift to more efficient business processes.”

Uniform Pro is a simple, fast and contactless digital solution that simplifies the measurement process, saves sales representatives the time and cost involved with hosting in-person fitting events, enables consistency, and instantly connects end-wearers to garments that fit them. It uses a patented combination of computer vision and 3D statistical modelling to instantly measure the human body using just two photos and map the unique body measurements to product data to generate accurate size recommendations.

Uniform Pro will continue to serve the industry well beyond the pandemic, as more companies across the healthcare, airline, hospitality, firefighting, security, food and beverage and other industries look for digital solutions that drive efficiency. Brand partners already include industry giant Fechheimer Brothers, a Berkshire Hathaway company and Safariland, a leader in body armour, as well as Burlington Medical.
