Sizzy makes a fitting start! French start-up company Sizzy captures body measurements with 3D body scanners by Human Solutions
More satisfied customers for online and mail order purchases and fewer returns – that’s what French start-up company Sizzy is aiming to achieve in its stores with the Human Solutions GmbH 3D body scanners, which capture customers’ individual body measurements in private scanning cabins.
March this year saw Sizzy open its first “Sizzy Center” in Paris and this store will be followed by six new French sites in Pronuptia stores within the next two months and around 20 other in 2016. In a second step, Sizzy would like to develop the concept in Europe and USA. The road to the right size & fit is simple and customer-friendly: in the Sizzy Center, the customer undresses in a private dressing room. He then triggers the scanning process himself – discreetly and easily without any staff help. He gets dressed again and just a few minutes later a member of the store staff gives him a card with his body measurements. Sizzy’s objective is to make choosing the right garment size easy for every customer when he or she wants to shop online or buy from a mail order company.
Sizzy chose the DITUS MC 3D body scanner and the foot scanner FOOTin 3D by the Human Solutions GmbH for its stores, which are operated in France by its partner company Neatek. “For Sizzy, the key factor was ease of use, because this would enable customers to take their own measurements – and the body scanner’s compact design and simple setup also convinced Sizzy”, says Dr. Helga Gäbel, of the 3D Body Scanner Sales Division at Human Solutions. “We are delighted with our excellent cooperation – and we wish Sizzy all the best!”
