Satisfied customer

2014-10-21

Pros

The Crystal Reports feature has been very useful for monitoring business operations, creating POs for raw materials, packing lists, invoices, etc.

Cons

The most challenging part of PolyPM is trying to pull together data from different data tables within the system to get a more holistic view of how efficient cutting/sewing is for a certain material or style.

Pros

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.

Cons

I have worked only with this system, but I have worked with our customers for integration. Because of this, I am able to know the goods and bads from their software. My recommendation is to look at all of your expectations for a system and talk with people who have the system to make sure the system can do what you want and the issues others have will not become yours.

Using PolyPM as our company's main software

2014-11-11

Pros

The software has a design option for the company IT to add or modify forms, grid, and reports, and it can be saved to Global or Local settings.

Cons

The software doesn't use an individual system password; instead, it uses the Windows login, and in our company, we have some Windows users that share the same account. For the vendor, the updates or requests for software modification sometimes take a while. But, I believe it's normal, as there are also other companies that have requested for system modification.

Polygon Software PolyPM Review

2014-12-03

Pros

It has to connect and relate all the information from orders to invoices.

Cons

There is still a problem between the warehouse system and the boxes with the finished product that makes it unable to use the same box number. If you are using the same box that you had in your warehouse, it shouldn't be necessary to use a new number. The help menu should have more option for learning.

Work out a list of features that you need the most. Prioritize and weigh them, and make a checklist of which are included in all software products under evaluation. Then compare which one has the greater score. In PolyPM, check out its Cut Planning module with CAD integration options, PLM and BOM setup, and Shop floor control.
