Imigize is the first 3D contactless (virtual) fitting service in the world that will make revolutionary changes in the clothes and footwear online market.
Imigize solves the most important problem of selling shoes and clothes online - selecting the exact size based on individual anthropometric data of the buyer.
Imigize invented (WIPO/PCT patents USA/EU/China/Russia/Japan) 3D measurement technology for internal volumes of footwear (clothes) and feet (body) of users.
To take advantage of the technology, the user will only need to use the mobile application imiscan. It allows customers to make 3D anthropometric feet scanning (body soon) on their own. Choosing algorithm based on AI matches the inner volume of shoes and clothes with customer's anthropometric data and gives recommendations on size.
Imigize service is launched on the Russian market. Scaling on the global markets will lead to the transformation of clothes and footwear trade by transferring most of it online. It is expected that 80-90% of clothes and footwear will be sold online by 2030.
High-tech industrial measurement centers for 3D scanning of internal volumes of clothing and footwear are the basis of the Imigize service. The first center located in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, has a capacity up to 1 million pairs of shoes per year.
We are planning to scale the Imigize service to the global markets in China.
This includes designing of 10-15 industrial measurement centers for clothes and footwear inner volumes 3D measurements in locations of global brands of clothes and shoe production (Guangzhou, Dongguan, Wenzhou, Taizhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Quanzhou, Jinjiang).
This will reduce costs of logistics and allow to cover the maximum number of global online stores because produced clothes and footwear will have a digital profile. We are engaged in negotiations on the integration with the Imigize service with several global online retailers.
