Enterprise Times: What this means for business?
Size guides sound pretty innocuous. A minor component in the customer experience journey. However, size guides remain a significant challenge for online retailers. Just imagine trying to amalgamate the sizing recommendations of multiple brands and manufacturers from around the globe. Then having to add the various international sizes into the mix. A size ‘Large’ may mean very different actual size for a US apparel manufacturer, compared to a Japanese clothing brand. Incorrect sizes remain, one of the main reasons customers return products.
