MySize Initiates Commercial Phase of KatzID Rollout
AIRPORT CITY, Israel, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
MySize Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: MYSZ; TASE: MYSZ), developer of proprietary, smartphone measurement applications, announced today the completion of the beta-pilot testing phase and the beginning of the commercial phase of the KatzID, a courier measurement application(app) developed by MySize.
Katz Corporation CEO Dror Katz said, “Following the successful pilot conducted at Katz Shipping’s logistic center, starting in April 2017, KatzID will be made available to Katz’ employees to improve control procedures over the parcels it transfers. As a result of accurate measurements, we expect KatzID will provide Katz a significant yearly savings that is estimated to increase the company’s annual income by about 2.5%, to around one million US dollars. The Katz team is invited to download the application from the Apple store, and use it to measure packages.”
KatzID is a customized, white label version of an intuitive parcel measurement app that empowers employees to easily and quickly measure the size of a parcel and calculate its exact shipping cost. KatzID also provides the courier company with additional abilities and stream of accurate logistics data such as barcode scanning, package pictures, location and more which connect to Katz’ ERP system to better manage their delivery processes.
By adopting MySize’s technology, Katz intends to:
- accurately monitor the volume of all parcels and charge clients accordingly.
- reduce operational costs by adjusting the number of distribution vehicles accordingly with the ‘real’ volume of shipments.
- enable the installation of the application on the driver’s platform so they may document the volume of the parcels. Drivers would be rewarded if they reach defined distribution volumes.
- in the future, enable its clients to simultaneously measure their parcels, monitor their shipment volumes and obtain a price proposal prior to shipment.
Note: KatzID first photographs a parcel and records its volume and weight. The data is then forwarded to the client for his records.
“Today marks a major milestone in the development of a very important product that is going to significantly improve today’s shipping process. It is a pleasure working with the professional team at Katz, who understood from the start the immense value of KatzID and enthusiastically joined us on what has been an exciting adventure. We look forward to continuing on this road with the goal of making KatzID and other white label products for the courier market, an industry standard,” said MySize Inc. CEO Mr. Ronen Luzon.
According to marketrealist.com, globally the courier services market includes 7500 companies representing about 90 billion dollars in revenue.
