Human Solutions takes its customized clothing solution to North America

RETAILOR: First Canadian customer. In operation since the end of August at RHODES e-Tailors Inc.

Kaiserslautern, 30th. November 2005 - The Human Solutions Company has gained its first RETAILOR customer in Canada - the Calgary house of fashion "Rhodes e-Tailors Inc." RETAILOR Shop 3D has been in operation there since the end of August, directly linking the Calgary shop with the manufacturers Odermark and Scabal in Europe.

"Human Solutions already has several 3D body scanners in the USA - but Rhodes e-Tailors is the first Canadian house of fashion to use our RETAILOR platform", commented Dr. Andreas Seidl, Managing Director of Human Solutions. "This is an important move for us in an interesting market, and we hope to gain more customers for our clothing solutions in this region."

The first contact between Calgary and Kaiserslautern occurred more than two years ago, when Darrell Rhodes, the President of Rhodes e-Tailors, visited the 2003 IMB Exhibition in May of that year. Extremely interested by Human Solutions' demonstration, Darrell Rhodes then examined Odermark's production setup. He subsequently decided on the high-end version RETAILOR SHOP 3D: he found the high finishing quality standards of the European customized clothing production manufacturers Odermark and Scabal to be just as convincing as the interaction between the body scanner and the RETAILOR platform, which of course includes integration with the particular manufacturer.

RETAILOR - the personal solution

The RETAILOR portal is the only platform worldwide that directly links the retail trade with various manufacturers of ladies' and men's made-to-measure clothing. There are three versions to choose from, all of which mainly differ from one another in the way the measurements are taken. In the case of the high-end model RETAILOR SHOP 3D, customers are digitally measured by a three-dimensional body scanner. During the sales talk, the RETAILOR customer guidance program supports the vendor and also helps the customer with decisions like which cloth or cut suits him best to details like the choice of buttons. All data is then transmitted online to the manufacturer.
