PolyPM Overview

What is PolyPM?

Polygon Software are the developers of PolyPM, an integrated PLM and ERP solution that is industry specific for textile mills, sewn goods manufacturers, apparel manufacturers, and more. What makes PolyPM unique is that every operator, in any department, accesses the same central PDM. Shop Floor operators see the same information as Product Developers.

Manufacturers, distributors, and brands can collaborate with customers and suppliers throughout each individual product’s lifecycle, decreasing the time it takes for a product to go from an idea to store shelves.

Perfect Tool for Manufacture Industry

Make sure you have the right tools help the company to save Money and used on right places, that is what Poly PM does, because provide all the information that management needs to take right decisions. With all the tools that Poly PM have incorporated make easy manage all the production process.
I See on the market some tools that Poly PM have built in, like Production Planning, Automatic Cut Marker Calculation, Production Work flows and more; and does tools for other products are soo expensive and complicated to implement, but with Poly PM is much easier, faster and less expensive.

Great software!

We implemented this software for our wholesale uniform business a couple of years back. From the start to finish, it was a great experience to work with Mickey and Andrew. They listened to our concerns and needs and did their best to give us what we were looking for. They custom-tailored many tasks and reports for us which has made it very easy for us to get answers quickly and efficiently. We love the ease of use of this software. But anytime we have any glitches which do happen occasionally, the customer support is exceptional!

Pros

I have been using this product for two years now, and I am still learning new things that it has. The developer of this product is always easily accessible and available when you need him to help. The Inventory Management integrated with work orders is a great way of keeping track of everything. The workflows allow us to keep track of where all of the orders are at any time, and our customers can see this information so they can track their own orders.

Cons

The few things that I have not liked about this system usually have gotten fixed in a couple months after we let them know what we would like to have the system do.
