Fully automatic marker making

You can now face the great challenge of how to convert the order reliably, quickly and easily into a corresponding markers for the cutting room with confidence!

What is your vision?

The clothing and fashion industry is in a state of upheaval. New business models are being developed to increase customer loyalty to the company. The personalization of a product is in the foreground. Such customization can cover various areas, from fabric selection, design and individual embroidery to manufacture made-to-measure. There is no question that such an individualisation of a product can only be realised economically with a high degree of automation. Thus, the digitization of processes is a priority in such a project. The topic of sustainability must not be ignored. The careful use of resources, environmental compatibility and the recycling of products are further central tasks.

The topic of sustainability must also be taken into account. The careful use of resources, environmental compatibility and the recycling of products are further central tasks – today and in the future. Because we are obliged to do so. To nature and to future generations.

Your customer as a co-designer!

With “pod – Patten on Demand®” you are in the position to offer your customers the ability to design their own personal style of clothing in terms of cut, form, colour, and fabric. Your customer therefore becomes a co-designer and is able to create a clothing style tailored to their wish and measurement.
You can now confidently tackle the considerable challenge of reliably, quickly, and simply converting an order into an appropriate cutting pattern or cutting pattern layer that can also be reproduced for follow-up orders!

This is because the platform we have developed is designed to allow for fully automated conversion of custom orders, starting from a batch size of just one unit, from a web shop order into a cutting pattern layer. As such, you can process your custom orders efficiently and securely..

Modular configuration

Depending on how you have designed your business model, you can use our platform accordingly! The modular functionality and scalability of the platform makes it a loyal companion from small start-ups to large companies.


Offer your customers a unique user experience

Our configurator guides your customers through the order process intuitively and securely! The integrated visualisation features – also available in 3D – can be used to assist customers in making their decision.
Depending on whether or not you currently have an online shop, you can choose between two different variants of our software to turn your customers into your co-designers:
Choose either our B2B2C web shop with a responsive design that displays well on all devices or integrate our configurator into your existing online shop via our own function-oriented programming interface (API). Either way, you will only have to enter the product data into our system once.


Fully automatic

Fast and, above all, fully automatic processing of custom web shop orders is our platform’s primary task. Creating the cutting patterns or cutting pattern layers is done using the CAD software package, GRAFIS®, which excels at producing custom jobs for made-to-measure, ready-to-wear clothing. “pod – Pattern on Demand®” is used to set up the models according to body measurements and other parameters and to initiate automated processes remotely.

Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your made-to-measure jobs will be processed reliably!

Depending on the requirements and number of orders to be processed each day, we offer different configuration levels for the software. This will allow you to create your own tailor-made “pod – Pattern on Demand®” platform!
For small companies, the software offers the possibility to manually enter measurement orders even without a web shop and then have them processed automatically.n.


Production papers and production tracking

Our platform also provides support for your orders throughout the production stage so that you are constantly kept in the loop. Our software also offers additional features like production documents and tracking production progress – also with the option to provide your customers with status updates if desired. Additionally, all order data, including fabric consumption, can be accessed using your ERP software via a transfer database.

The only man I know who behaves sensibly is my tailor; he takes my measurements anew each time he sees me. The rest go on with their old measurements and expect me to fit them.

Georg Bernard Shaw
