Belgium-based packaging solution provider Esko has redesigned its palletisation software, Cape Pack 16, in order to provide cloud-based functionality in software as a service (SaaS) or a subscription model.
The updated Cape Pack 16 features a new database structure, cloud-based data storage, improved graphically rich reporting capability and new tools.
The new version has also enabled users to instantly share information with colleagues, speeding up design and approval processes and reducing cycle times.
Similar to the desktop version of Cape Pack software, the redesigned Cape Pack 16 provides quick access to new internal palletisation facts and figures to the users.
Cape Pack 16, which helps upload designs for folding cartons, cases and pallets, also supports cartons, cylinders and trapezoids, as well as trays and bundle palletisation.
In addition, the updated software offers multi-stack formatting for pallet loads, metric and imperial measurements, and PDF sharing.
Esko cape product manager Kim Karl said: “Cape Pack has been helping operations build the most efficient carton and pallet designs since 1994, with more than 10,000 installs serving more than 30,000 users.
“Now it is even easier to use. We have added functionality based on customer feedback to improve productivity in the palletisation process.
“It is a graphically rich multilingual solution that takes advantage of Esko’s graphics technology and is backed by Esko’s market-leading worldwide sales and support organisation for peace of mind.”
The company noted that customers using Cape Pack have already been able to save an average of 10% on packaging, palletising, storage and shipment costs for each product designed.
