Pros: Poly PM change based on all the needs of the company and the type of business

Cons: Poly PM need to have more reports templates developed t make easy the process to create new reports

Overall: 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.

Comments: I've been using POLY PM for about 4 years, and from the moment I started exploring the software I got surprised on the large number of features that the system was able to manage, and that you would normally need to buy 2 or 3 different products to handle the same scope. The versatility of its working screens and their user customization goodness is outstanding.
For a clothing manufacturing facility, it provides a clear vision of its inventories and workflow status from the most basic raw material up to a complex packaged product mix.
The Poly PM system is capable of truly replicating a very complex production process in a virtual environment, from customer order, to material requirements, vendor and warehouse management, fabric spread & cut planning, sewing, embellishing, and packaging following a manufacturing route that would satisfy even the most demanding of our customers.
The only weakness I have found so far is its lack of accounting features, but knowing POLYGON I am pretty sure that soon we will receive a new release containing those functionalities.
I Can't complain of their Customer Service, they can be quickly accessed by e-mail, skype, or cellphone.
Two thumb up POLY PM...!!!

Comments: We are a manufacturer of fireman┬┐s turnout gear. PolyPM was the only software that could handle the custom sizes and options that are available with our garments. Over the years Polygon has always found a solution to any issues that occur. They are always quick to respond when contacted. New releases are consistently issued that offer improvements and new features. The use of PolyPM has provided us with better inventory control, production planning and general company history. We continue to find new uses for the software.

Comments: 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!
