Bodygram Japan K.K. (CEO Jin Koh) has offered its AI measurement technology “Bodygram,” that can accurately estimate users’ body size, to SELERY Co., Ltd. (President & CEO Mikio Dazai).
So far in the uniform industry, traditional service process starts with a visit to a client’s office for measurements, followed by data tallying, manufacturing and delivery. However, in order to meet clients’ demand for contactless services under the coronavirus crisis, and for the company to reduce and streamline operational steps thereby reducing costs, SELERY has deployed the AI measurement technology offered by Bodygram Japan.
This marks Bodygram Japan’s entry into the work uniform industry in the commercial sector. Through the provision of Bodygram to SELERY, a leading player in the uniform industry, Bodygram Japan expects that the company can contribute to the innovation of the industry as a whole.

With Bodygram, SELERY will make its entire operational process contactless and automated from face-to-face measurement, a step that has been under restraint given the spread of the coronavirus infection, to receiving orders, to delivery. Ultimately, SELERY will deliver services and support to its business clients and stores with a dramatically increased efficiency. SELERY is expected to see an 85% drop in operational costs that are associated with measurement to delivery processes. At the same time, SELERY can also reduce the inventory levels stocked for replacing returned items (size exchanges), an environmentally conscious step through which SELERY can contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SELERY will continue to utilize this innovative technology in the post-Covid-19 era.
Bodygram Japan is committed to further improving its technology and development capabilities to deliver more convenient and reliable AI measurement technology than ever before.
transcosmos inc. (President & COO Masataka Okuda) formed a partnership with Bodygram Japan in June 2020, and began delivering integrated services that include system development, operations, analytics and support associated with Bodygram. transcosmos offered system implementation services for SELERY to deploy Bodygram.
