Retailer's campaign for customized clothing line windsor. individual:

Clothing manufacturer visits selected individual retailers throughout Germany

Bielefeld, 16th February 2004 Exclusive clothing manufacturer Windsor GmbH of Bielefeld, Germany, takes its windsor. individual line into the world of customized clothing. The solutions of the HUMAN SOLUTIONS GmbH form the basis for this product line - customers are digitally measured by means of a 3D Body Scanner, while the platform RETAILOR enables the further processing of the acquired data, from ordering to delivery. Trying-on or slipping-in and out of various sizes are no longer necessary. In order to promote and further establish this futuristic concept at retailers, Windsor took its Roadshow to selected partners from April through December 2003.

The conclusion of the tour saw the company take an extremely positive view of the results - thanks to the live demonstration of the Body Scanner in the stores, new partners were gained for windsor. individual.

And in its own flagship store in Hamburg, Windsor uses a 3D Body Scanner - Human Solutions installed one there last month.



Windsor: Customized clothing based on solutions by Human Solutions

All the relevant measurements are captured in seconds: in the cabin, a 3D Body Scanner laser-scans the customer in a procedure that is contact-free and exact to the millimeter. The digital data acquired lay the foundation for the manufacture of individualized clothing and the guarantee of a good fit. In addition, RETAILOR supports the usual sales and advisory discussion between the trained sales person and the customer - the selection of cut, fabric, color and other details are demonstrated using the scanned, three-dimensional image of the customer. That helps the customer make his decisions more easily. Further trying-on or slipping on of various sizes can now be dispensed with, since the suit can be ordered immediately online thanks to the accuracy of the data. The result is a one-off product that matches the customer's wishes perfectly, is a perfect fit and costs only 20-30 percent more than that of a comparable standard Windsor suit.
