3DLook's tech enables users to measure up for a new uniform without any human assistance using their smartphone

Uniform maker Unisync has struck a partnership with3DLook, which specialises in AI-first mobile body-scanning solutions, to virtualize and automate the process of measuring and fitting for uniforms. 3DLook’s solution gives Unisync the ability to forgo big offline fitting events, saving timing and resources, and increasing the efficiency of its business processes.

Unisync is one of the first companies to introduce the AI-powered fit-and-sizing solution in the legacy uniform sector. For decades, businesses in the industry have had to set up in-person measuring and fitting events where sales reps physically measure hundreds of people, followed by trying on workwear samples to determine the correct size. These events are time-consuming, expensive to set up, and prone to human error.

3DLook’s solution gives users the ability to accurately measure themselves with a smartphone or a tablet device in the comfort of their own homes. They only have to take a front and side photo while fully dressed and let the technology instantly determine what size uniform would fit best. The process is quick and straightforward and doesn't require a measuring tape or assistance of any kind.

"For many years, we have been searching for a body-scanning technology that will enable accurate scanning to correctly dress all of our contracted end-users with their best-recommended uniform based upon their scanned size," said Unisync CEO, Matt Graham. "We have trialled many potential solutions over recent years, but most were either not accurate or were not overly user-friendly. In 3DLook, we have finally found a solution that combines ease-of-use with accuracy and removes the need for in-person fitting sessions that are both cumbersome in time and cost-prohibitive. We are excited to start rolling this technology to all of our existing and new customers."
