The Company

Rather than repurposing software originally designed for the aerospace or automotive industries, Polytropon specialises in supplying solutions (CAD, ERP and PLM) that are tailor made for the unique requirements of companies in the retail, footwear and apparel sector.  They are long-established in their home market and are putting in place partnership and resale agreements that will enable them to expand their satisfied customer base into new territories.

Solution

The company’s PolyOrganize PLM solution is provided fully functional out-of-the-box, with configuration options designed to be easy for non-technical staff with no hidden costs.  Optional software modules are provided to cover the extended product development process and production monitoring.

That robust out-of-the-box functionality and ease of customisation are cemented by a surprising breadth of process support: from conceptual design, RFQ, material development and sampling, right through to quality assurance and purchase order and inventory management.

Technical

PolyOrganize supports a good range of hardware platforms and operating systems, and multi-language support and documentation are excellent.

The company provides a solid “tech pack”, which includes costing scenarios, and the PolyOrganize solution supports both Critical Path Management and Workflow.  The software licensing possibilities set out by the company are considered, with multiple licensing options available to cater for companies of all shapes and sizes.  Unique requirements and special requests are accommodated quickly and effectively.

The solution has a reporting deck as standard, and provides customers with an intuitive and powerful method of developing reports via a simple report builder module with GUI interface.

Summary

PolyOrganize is a robust, adaptable and powerful out-of-the-box solution, with a broad feature set and support for the majority of industry-standard processes.  Polytropon is an established and committed vendor, dedicated to providing solutions that meet the unique needs of companies in the retail, footwear and apparel industry.

WhichPLM would recommend PolyOrganize for a company in the SME sector who operates within Polytropon’s regional base, or close to a partner or reseller in a supported territory.  The solution is technically sound and fashion-focused, and the company’s strong track record of implementing changes and special customer requests should ensure that it remains a compelling choice for small to medium companies.
