About 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. This drives all of your business's processes into being more efficient and agile by creating the ability for rapid communication between and all users working with the same real-time data.

PolyPM is a start to finish solution for managing every aspect of your business, from design to invoicing and distribution. 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. The technology is highly configurable and we tailor PolyPM to your business's specific needs.
It can be deployed as SaaS or on-site, based on preference.

Key benefits of PolyPM

All two-dimensional matrixes are supported for any type of apparel or sewn good, with users able to add an unlimited number of sizes to each range, and style/fabric/color/size matrixes can be customized to suite business requirements.

Purchase orders can be automatically or manually issued, with manufacturers able to specify BOMs and purchase materials based on production requirements, and distributors able to produce purchase orders for finished products.

  • Production can be fully planned and scheduled from a single screen, with users able to work from a department or production line view, and see product, sourcing, and manufacturing details, materials requirements and availability, and capacity on the built-in planning board.

    Instruction sets, containing full histories of instruction sheet development, can be maintained and used to track revision histories for fabric specifications, dyeing instructions, sewing instructions, and packaging instructions.

    Workflow templates can be created in a flow chart, with users able to model processes and add approval processes, alternate path processes, and parallel processes.

    Reasonable tool. I used this software during time working through and agency so I didn't spend much time with it. But the experience I had with it compared to similar software was good.

    Pros

    The interface easy to use and navigate. I had a few technical issues at first but most of it was just user error. The support service is amazing!

    Cons

    Because of the nature of this business, the amount of data across multiple sources was immense and caused lags in the 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!
