Imigize is the first on-line contactless 3D footwear fitting service in the world.
Imigize is an IT start-up, created in 2015, in the area of Biometry, Сomputer vision and Artificial intelligence. For on-line footwear trade Imigize made the term “size” unessential.
Now any user can buy shoes based on his 3D anthropomorphic profile and be sure that these shoes will fit perfectly and be comfortable. To do that user has to scan feet in a store equipped with 3D scanners by Imigize or use an iOS/Android App.
Imigize works on a social mission, giving a possibility to buy footwear for relatives, friends, employees and for people with reduced capabilities without their presence in the store, only by feet measurement ID.
Imigize gives access to on-line trade benefits in pricing and variety of items to the wide range of people, including the less affluent segment of the population. We assume that Imigize will start a footwear market transition to on-line trade.
The Imigize service has been tested on the Russian market. That boosted interest in both sellers and buyers. The current clients of Imigize are: Wildberries (Amazon analogue) with 30 000 000 users and Runlab, worldwide sport footwear distributor.
Imigize is based on high-tech Industrial Measurement Centers that scan inner volume of shoes in 3D.
