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.
News and good to know
In the past, we focused on 1-to-1 processing of individual made-to-measure orders. Now we have extended the functionality so that several orders with the same fabric can be combined on one marker. Modern cutters are capable of cutting even long markers/layplans...

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..

Fully automatic marker-making
Enjoy the security of knowing that your Made-to-Measure orders will be reliably processed!
The fast and, above all, fully automatic processing of web shop measurement orders is the core task of our platform. The creation of the patterns or pattern layouts takes place in the CAD software GRAFIS®, which shows its particular strengths especially in the production of dimensional patterns and in Made-to-Measure confection. The control of the models by body measurements and parameters as well as the initiation of automated processes from the outside is carried out by “pod – Patten on Demand®”.
Depending on the requirements and the number of orders to be processed per day, we offer different expansion stages of the software. So you get your tailor-made “pod – Patten on Demand®” platform!
For small companies, the software offers the possibility to manually enter custom orders without a web shop and then have them processed automatically.
Newly, the platform also supports the possibility of multi-order pattern layouts, so that several orders with the same fabric are combined into one pattern.
Production papers and production tracking
The appropriate output for your production
Based on the requirements of your production, the layplans are output in the appropriate formats and information. Corresponding accompanying documents such as production orders or overviews help the production to process the orders.
Our platform also accompanies your orders through production so that you are always in the picture. Production documents and production tracking are further functionalities of our software.
In addition, all order data with the achieved material consumption can be made accessible to 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
