OUTFITTER - Silver in Design
This new e-commerce business focuses on bespoke sport uniform design. The OUTFITTER service successfully motivates customers to use this new sales channel to fully create their own sports uniforms. It is Japan’s first ever sponsor-customized uniform design service in Japan that provides a stress-free, frictionless purchase experience for its customers.
This service introduced a new business model in Japan where customers can benefit with up to a 50% price reduction by adding sponsoring company logos on the uniform. It created a frictionless purchasing experience for customers to preview their designs in real-time and try out design variations, colors and logos toward full customization. Its headless architecture, decoupled design and systems, greatly increasing freedom for creating designs while allowing room for a future OMO expansion.
