ACCUFIT DIGITAL MEASUREMENT SYSTEM
The AccuFit System, developed for LensCrafters, was the first digital measurement system in the US and Canada. The primary technology behind the system involved custom software and IT integration, but the delivery system was equally important.
SIGMADESIGN collaborated with Ziba Design to ensure that the transition to manufacturing was as seamless as possible. SIGMADESIGN representatives traveled to LensCrafters headquarters in Mason, Ohio to meet with LensCrafters’ executive team responsible for the deployment effort. Because these units were being installed in retail stores and just a few feet from the consumer, pristine, consistent and quality fabrication were emphasized as the critical factors to the deployment effort.
COORDINATION AND COLLABORATION
The delivery system consisted of approximately 20 individual components, 8 different vendors, 7 fabrication processes and a variety of materials: aluminum, sheet metal, injection molded plastic, custom cut adhesive, and CNC machined plastic. The goal was to ship over 5,000 systems, in four months, to retail stores throughout Canada and the US. This required coordination and collaboration within our extensive, trusted network of proven vendors. Working closely together, SIGMADESIGN and Ziba Design ensured a seamless transition to manufacturing and deployment.
