We hope the new system will help store assistants as well as parents to provide an accurate, interactive and fun method of measuring childrens’ shoe sizes.
Hampshire (PRWEB UK) 13 September 2014
Sarnel Services Ltd, an IT logistics company based in Hampshire, have recently completed a large project in which they installed iPads in 680 Clarks stores across the UK. The IT logistics firm were contacted by Clarks back in 2013 in order to help roll out a new scheme known as the ‘iGauge Measuring System’ which would help store assistants to measure children’s feet accurately yet in an appealing way for both the child and the parent.
The system works by the child standing on a foot plate, to which the iPad is then connected by the store assistant. The interactive software allows the child to choose a character, either Jack or Daisy, whilst the foot plate measures the child’s foot. The measurements are then entered into the iPad which can help the assistant to fit the appropriately sized shoe for the child. The rollout of the ‘iPad Foot Measuring Solution’ will enhance brand awareness and will keep Clarks at the forefront of their industry.
Sarnel Services Ltd installed a number of the boards at selected pilot stores across the UK in order to gain valuable information in preparation for the nationwide rollout. Five teams, consisting of electricians, carpenters and IT engineers, were appointed to deliver and implement the project across 680 stores in just twenty-two weeks. The core focus was to minimise the amount of disruption to each store whilst working to the highest standards. The feedback received from the Clarks stores was highly complimentary.
Bill Clark, Technical Director at Sarnel Services Ltd, said:
“At Sarnel Services Ltd we have a long standing history of delivering bespoke project solutions to a high quality within the retail environment, and the iGauge Measuring System which we installed at the Clarks stores was just one of our recent successes. We hope the new system will help store assistants as well as parents to provide an accurate, interactive and fun method of measuring childrens’ shoe sizes.”
