Fit tech is no longer a nice-to-have amongst consumer brands but professional clothing companies have been a little slower to adopt the technology, for a range of reasons. However, we were delighted to hear how excited the many uniform suppliers and manufacturers we met at the A+A Exhibition 2023 (Düsseldorf, 24 – 27 October 2023) were to hear more about our technology. A lot has changed in the last couple of years and it is great to hear how enthusiastic they were to integrate the tech into their customer platforms.
With increasing sustainability legislation and rising costs, many see fit tech as a way to help them improve efficiency and support ESGs. Others realise that it will give them the competitive edge or perhaps they have a new customer with specialist sizing needs, which customisable systems such as our Size Me platform can help with. Here are some of the top reasons why the uniform companies we spoke with, were so keen to adopt our new technology and systems:
- Save time and money: Reduce returns and returns processing
- Competitive edge: get your customers’ staff into the right fit quickly and efficiently = improved customer satisfaction and retention
- Customisation: The latest technology and adaptable systems such as Bodi.Me’s Size Me, can create unique fitting systems for uniforms that require a more modern or specialist approach e.g. gender neutral collections
- Future proofing: data gathered by fit tech can support future production planning
- Sustainability: reduction in returns, drop in overproduction, move towards made-on-demand models, overall improved carbon footprint, all supports your and customers’ sustainability goals
Whatever the reason for each individual company’s interest, one thing is clear: there is no reason for anybody should be left behind because the tech is available, it’s easy to implement and economically viable.
