Boston, MA – December 17th, 2020 – NetVirta® introduced a 3D foot scanning app, Verifyt®, which can be used by skiers and snowboarders to 3D scan their feet for contactless boot fitting. The Verifyt® app, which features an augmented reality (AR) experience, has been published in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store and can be used for free. Upon download, users can:
- 3D scan their feet and view their 3D foot models and foot measurements
- Send their foot data to a ski retail or rental shop to order the correct boot size based on their measurements
This new way of contactless boot-fitting is beneficial for both the customer and the retail operator, especially during the 20’-21’ ski season while Covid-19 looms over the industry. Using Verifyt®, ski rental operators such as Black Tie Ski Rental Delivery will improve their operations through an improved boot fitting process and mitigate health risks to their customers and employees by preventing breakdowns in social distancing.
“At Black Tie we are incredibly excited to have partnered with NetVirta to make their Verifyt app available to our guests. This “game changing” technology will change how we fit ski boots forever!” – Ian Prichard, Co-Founder and President of Black Tie Skis.
Starting on Monday Dec 14th, Black Tie will begin using this app to scan customers in the following ski resort locations: Aspen, Banff, Big Sky, Breckenridge, Crested Butte, Jackson Hole, Mammoth, North Tahoe, Park City, South Tahoe, Steamboat, Sun Valley, Telluride, Vail/BC, Whistler, and Winter Park.
As more ski shops and brands adopt Verifyt worldwide, consumers will be able to rent equipment and avoid the dreaded rental shop experience. No more waiting in lines at crowded shops to get measured and fit for boots. Verifyt® offers skiers and snowboarders an easy yet revolutionary way to get fit for equipment.
