Better Size S.W.A.G. for Children's Clothing with Pint Size from Crazed Kitty Software

Pint Size's growth predictions make choosing the right size for children's clothes simpler and easier

REDLANDS, Calif., Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Crazed Kitty Software's newest iOS app, Pint Size, enables consumers to buy clothes with the knowledge of when and how long their child may fit a particular size, allowing the consumer to take advantage of today's end-of-season sales on clothes in the size their child is most likely to need at the start of the next season. Pint Size harnesses the science of pediatric growth curves to identify current and future children's clothing sizes for 44 major U.S. clothing brands. Pint Size provides better size S.W.A.G.

Pint Size translates the current height and weight of a child into a growth curve that can predict future height and weight values up to age 20 using Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) data and formulas. These predictions are turned into sizes for any of the 44 clothing brands Pint Size currently includes, enabling a more consistent and reliable clothes fit for the child. These predications create the opportunity take advantage of the significant savings that retailers give when clothing seasons come to an end. Growth measurements can be entered in U.S., U.K., or Metric units, enabling consumers worldwide to use Pint Size when traveling to the U.S. to determine the correct U.S. size for their children. Buying children's clothes is often a shared activity so Pint Size supports sharing this information via email, text, or Facebook. And parents enjoy telling the story of their children growing up, so Pint Size has included a photo album with a slide show to display all those photos capturing the child's growth history.

 "I love this app, and have already found it changing the way I shop - giving me the freedom to try new brands, and a convenient way to always have the information I need with me so that I can grab a great deal when I see one, whether it's for right now, next season, or even next year," says Cheryl Cobb, originator of the app concept. "Exploring the implications of what Cheryl wanted led us to discover that no one had connected the power of growth charts with the opportunity to get great deals on children's clothing by buying ahead of time," said Rob Lee, founder of Crazed Kitty Software. "Whether it is taking advantage of clothing sales, tripping across a great find at a consignment or thrift shop, or being an international traveler, knowing the right size before you buy gives you more control over your clothing budget. And this is especially true for our youngest children, where their rapid growth often means an item of clothing could be used by multiple children before it is worn out."

In this initial release Pint Size supports multiple families, giving grandparents, aunts, and uncles, and extended family to keep track of the children in their lives. This enables gift buying without the need to call for current sizes, or locating another child who is or soon will be ready for the clothes your child is retiring. And sharing this information is easy; a child's sizes in a favorite brand can be distributed via email, text, or Facebook. International travelers coming to the USA can use Pint Size to locate U.S. clothing sizes, giving them a greater confidence that their clothing purchase will fit when they return home. The initial clothing brand database will be expanded not only with more regional and local brands, but also internationally in the coming months, with automatic updates delivered to the app when they become available. Pint Size will improve the process of anticipating children's growth and responding to the changing clothing demands that results.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT.
