Human Solutions delivers first body scanner ever in Kasakhstan

Modehaus SKANDAL in Almaty opts for RETAILOR SHOP 3D. Retailer in Central Asia directly linked to tailored clothing manufacturers in Germany

Kaiserslautern, 19th December 2006 – Human Solutions GmbH of Kaiserslautern has made its first move in a new regional market - the SKANDAL fashion house in Almaty, Kasakhstan, is the first company in Central Asia to use a 3D body scanner and the RETAILOR clothing solution. At the end of November 2006, a new SKANDAL store opened - offering mass-produced, tailored menswear and ladies' wear. The retailer in Kasakhstan is linked to the German manufacturers via RETAILOR and can transmit all the necessary data online. At the initial launch of the new service, customers had a choice of either Odermark or Scabal collections - however, Wahl, Rieder and Oktavia are also in the SKANDAL pipeline.

SKANDAL decided on the high-end solution RETAILOR SHOP 3D. In this version, a 3D body scanner takes customers' measurements digitally. In Almaty, the new model VITUS Smart LC is used - it was specially conceived for meeting the demands of clothing retailers. In comparison to its predecessor, VITUS Smart XXL, it requires less space and costs much less to purchase and maintain. This was made possible through a radical change in design: the person being measured used to stand within four columns arranged in a square - but the VITUS Smart LC only requires three. During the sales talk, the RETAILOR program also provides comprehensive support for the professional sales person and helps the customer with his or her decisions – from basic questions like which cloth or cut to details like the choice of buttons. All data is transmitted online to the manufacturer.

Eugen Drehband, Founder and Managing Director of the SKANDAL company, explained why he chose Human Solutions: “Since 1998, we've been supplying high quality menswear to our customers in Almaty, focusing on well-known German manufacturers. So to improve our customer services even more in our new store, we decided to adopt the system of customized clothing mass production. Since we work with various manufacturers, it's ideal for us to have just one platform for processing all the procedures. The RETAILOR software solution has already established itself here as the standard.”

Anton Preiß, Sales Manager at Human Solutions, said: “We're delighted, that the internationalization of our company is again pushing the envelope with yet another sales success - in what for us is a new region. This latest coup once again shows clearly RETAILOR’s great potential for the apparel industry, enabling German manufacturers to open up new markets for their products on a global scale.”


In 1998, Intexport had two fashion houses in Almaty (formerly Alma-Ata). A third followed in the south of the country, in Schymkent. The fourth store was opened in a shopping centre in Almaty at the end of November 2006. The 3D body scanner by Human Solutions stands there - providing precise and fast measurement for SKANDAL's customers.

SKANDAL was founded by Eugen Drehband and specializes in the sales of high-class apparel made by German manufacturers.
