Unisync Corporation has announced a partnership with Toronto-headquartered mobile body scanning solutions provider 3Dlook, to virtualise and automate the process of measuring and fitting for uniforms.

3DLook’s solution allows Unisync, which provides full-service, managed apparel programnes for major corporations and government bodies, to eliminate major offline fitting events, saving time and resources and increasing the efficiency of its business processes.

“For many years, we have been searching for a body scanning technology that will enable accurate scanning to correctly dress all of our contracted end-users with their best-recommended uniform based upon their scanned size,” said Matt Graham, CEO of Unisync which is headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario. “We have trialled many potential solutions over recent years, but most were either not accurate or were not overly user-friendly. In 3DLook, we have finally found a solution that combines ease-of-use with accuracy and removes the need for in-person fitting sessions that are both cumbersome in time and cost-prohibitive.”

3DLook’s solution ensures a simple and fast experience for Unisync end-users, giving them the ability to accurately measure themselves with a smartphone or a tablet device in the comfort of their own homes. They only have to take a front and side photo while fully dressed and let the technology instantly determine what size uniform would fit best. The whole process is quick and straightforward and doesn’t require a measuring tape or assistance of any kind.

For decades, businesses in the industry have had to set up in-person measuring and fitting events where sales reps physically measure hundreds of people, followed by trying on workwear samples to determine the correct size. These events are time-consuming, expensive to set up, and prone to human error. 3DLook’s technology is putting an end to these archaic processes.

“Bringing innovation to this antiquated market isn’t easy, since the technology completely changes the established fitting process and affects thousands of people across the uniform supply chain – from sales teams to end-wearers,” said Vadim Rogovskiy, CEO and co-founder at 3DLook. “We applaud the team at Unisync for having the foresight to use this innovation to ease the fitting process and enhance their own operations, pushing the whole industry to the tech-driven future.”

3DLook’s solutions enable personalised shopping experiences and give brands actionable insights to optimise design, product development, inventory planning, and distribution. It works with some of the biggest names in retail, including Tailored Brands and Dickies, and recently announced a Series A raise of $6.5 million.
