Montreal — Sustainable packaging manufacturer Polykar Inc. launched a new free app for IOS devices that puts all industry calculators in a central location.
Called PolyApp, the platform was developed for production planners, extrusion operators and sales reps working for a converter or distributor in the flexible packaging industry.
The tools replace spreadsheets and website calculators and help users become more productive and accurate, according to company officials.
PolyApp allows users to prepare orders and do dimensional calculations for rolled and boxed products being designed, manufactured, quoted or purchased.
Polykar says calculations are done within seconds after specifications are entered.
"As an innovative company, we saw the opportunity to provide a unique platform for those in the flexible packaging industry," Polykar President and CEO Amir Karim said in a press release. "PolyApp offers the convenience of having all calculation tools packaged in one place. We hope this app will be appreciated and used by many in our industry."
PolyApp features seven tools including: liner dimension, weight/1000, film thickness, order planning, yield, roll OD and footage, and blow up ratio.
PolyApp can be downloaded for free from the App Store by searching for "PolyApp." The app is available in English and will be available in French at a later date.
