Say hello to a new tool from Techpacker to help you stay on top of the tech pack game! Get easy access to all of your tech packs, cards, libraries, and comments. There is no more need to dig through the tech packs and library folders. All you need is just one click away!
Create new tech packs faster
At the moment all of your tech packs are spread out throughout multiple folders neatly organized across your organization. If you are a small brand you are probably producing four collections per year, if you are a part of a large brand even more. Each collection consists of, let’s say, ten designs. So at least forty tech packs in front of you on your workspace yearly. What happens if you need to look up a specific tech pack as a reference for a new collection? You would allocate them to years, then to seasons, then dig into the tech packs to find what you need. Too many unnecessary clicks!
With the Global Search, all you need to do is enter a keyword, for example, “wrap dress” and it will list all matching tech packs. Making the process much faster and efficient.
Get fast access to cards
When building new products many design teams return back to the design elements that they used in the past. For example labels, packaging materials, hardware, and other accessories.
Remember that brass buckle that you used for the handbag in one of the tech packs in the 2020 collection? You would need to recall the supplier’s name, look up their website if they have one, try to remember what size the buckle was…
Using the Global Search, all you need to do is enter “brass buckle”. All of the corresponding cards will be visually located in front of you with the preview image, and all specifications and sourcing information securely stored inside them.
Recover old conversations
As you know, lots of product development and brainstorming conversations are often stored in the form of comments in the tech packs. As team members are building new collections they share thoughts and ideas with each other and are actively communicating before finalizing the design. After several rounds of tech pack revisions, unfortunately, many comments can get lost inside the tech packs and are very hard to locate.
It takes an uncanny amount of time to go into each tech pack to locate those comments. For example, that specific type of lace that you asked your sample-maker to use for sewing a new lingerie bodysuit after rejecting the first sample. You remember that it was scallop lace, but you don’t remember in which tech pack the communication happened.
Luckily, now by typing a keyword in the Global Search, Techpacker can list conversations too and they can be navigated to that particular card in a click. Saving tons of precious time.
Easily locate and edit libraries
Techpacker allows you to store all your valuable design assets as Libraries. This can be BOM tables, Measurement Specs, and even Costing Sheets. Libraries are a great tool to build new tech packs fast by simply dragging and dropping library cards.
But what happens when you need to change something in one of the libraries? For example, your supplier has changed or the fabric that you used is not produced anymore. You would need to go into your libraries folder, search through all existing libraries (and there can be tons of them!) to locate the needed one. Too time-consuming, right?
With our new Global Search tool, all you need to do is enter the name of your library to locate it and apply all edits on the go.
