The Skandal fashion house in Almaty, Kazakhstan, has become the first company in Central Asia to use a 3D body scanner linked to European manufacturers via the Retailor software platform.

Skandal opened its latest store at the end of November selling mass-produced, tailored men's wear and ladies' wear. The retailer in Kazakhstan is linked to German manufacturers via the Retailor platform from Human Solutions and can transmit all the necessary data online.

Initial collections are available from Odermark and Scabal, but Wahl, Rieder and Oktavia are also in the pipeline.
 
Using the Retailor Shop 3D solution, a 3D body scanner takes customers' measurements digitally.

The Retailor program also helps the customer with his or her decisions - from basic questions like which cloth or cut to details like the choice of buttons. All data is transmitted online to the manufacturer. 
 
Eugen Drehband, founder and managing director of Skandal, says: "Since we work with various manufacturers, it's ideal for us to have just one platform for processing all the procedures."
 
Anton Preiß, sales manager at Human Solutions, points out that the software is also helping "German manufacturers to open up new markets for their products on a global scale."
