In the future, Rakuten will continue to make efforts to provide high added-value services towards its goal of becoming a marketplace where customers can enjoy shopping even more.

Stuart Simms, CEO, Fits.me said, “This marks a major step forward for Fits.me and further highlights the value Rakuten sees in the data and technology we are able to provide to retailers.”

“Improving the customer experience is a concern for all retail brands at the moment, but in the apparel space it is crucial to supporting growth and driving loyalty,” he added.

Fits.me develops solutions that engage consumers during the apparel purchase process, enabling retailers and brands to capture both body measurements and fit preferences. (AR)
