Polymathic solves industry problems with product development.

Every great problem has a story, and Polymathic uses research, design and software engineering to serve this narrative with a thoughtful web/mobile application or IoT workflow. The right technology (choosing the best tool & stack for the job) seizes opportunity and moves an industry forward.

We focus on building products that change how employees perform their everyday jobs within an industry. No longer underserved by technology and innovation, that industry can focus on generating revenue, increasing efficiency, and creating jobs.

Pretty Quick

After years in the beauty industry, Coco and Shreena saw a clear need for a technology-agnostic, web-based platform to allow spas and salons to increase their off-peak bookings. Consumers are able to earn rewards while booking the best spas and salons from a mobile app. PrettyQuick utilizes geolocation and filtering to efficiently sort through many beauty offerings, while using text messaging to bypass the noise of app notifications. PrettyQuick was acquired by Groupon in 2015.

MobCraft is currently focusing on their brewing operations in Wisconsin, distributing in more US states, and adding features to their voting system.
