Most technology becomes a reality for some combination of the following reasons: To be safer, to be easier, to save time or to save money. The benefits of technology lead to a higher quality of work life for us humans. We created digital garment measuring technology to help retailers save time and money. Additionally, Tailored improves the virtual fitting experience. Below we detail some of the benefits of digital garment measuring technology.

Improved Accuracy vs Humans

We’ve mentioned before that the human hand and eye are prone to error. Thus achieving the most accurate and consistent results will not come by physical hand measuring. Tailored’s digital garment measuring software is able to recognize thousands of styles of garment. It also has the ability to learn and get smarter. The more photos of apparel Tailored sees, the more accurate it gets. We are pushing the limits of our technology to measure a garment 10 times more accurately than a human.

80% or Greater Reduction in Time Spent Measuring

We’ve spoken with hundreds of retailers around the globe and they all have the same gripe. Measuring apparel is a necessary task but it is also one of the most laborious and time consuming. The average time needed to hand measure a garment and enter the data into a computer program is around 5 minutes for a single garment. Tailored can do it all in less than 5 seconds.

Instant Access To Measurement Data

All businesses push for increased efficiency in their workflow, apparel retail is no different. Quality control and analyzing vendor samples are two areas that add a lot of time to a garments life cycle. With Tailored your team has instant access to measurement data taken at the factory, out in the field, or in the many design departments in your corporate headquarters.

Team Alignment

There is only so much time in a given work day. Therefore all companies are looking for ways to go faster and employees are pushed to do more with less. Many times this means taking work home with them. A drastic reduction of time spent on physical measurements means their minds can be put towards more effective use.
