For 7 years Fits.me has helped major global retailers such as ASDA, QVC and many more to over-come the major challenges of apparel shopping – namely: how do retailers engage distracted and price-driven shoppers in a meaningful way and help them understand and find the right clothes for them.
Our pioneering Virtual Fitting Room and Fit Recommendation solutions enabled retailers to help shoppers who were looking for that last bit of help when shopping for clothes – which size should I buy?
In doing so, over the last 6 years, Fits.me analysed the body types, physical proportions and preferences of 5+ million shoppers and the technical composition of thousands of garments to match the right clothes to the shoppers who were asking for help.
As a result we have a sophisticated solution which in effect creates a means for any shopper to understand which garment is right for them across any brand or retailer wherever they are.
The retailers we work with now can now use Fits.me to improve all aspects of the engagement with their shoppers from brand new visitors to an online store through to the loyal shopper who is looking for something different on the high street.
