In today's fast-paced world of eCommerce and logistics, the importance of efficient, precise, and scalable packaging processes cannot be overstated. Businesses are constantly seeking ways to streamline their operations, reduce costs, and enhance customer satisfaction. Packaging automation is the obvious solution – but your right-sized packaging machine systems are only as efficient as the software platform they are connected to. For a long time, most software platforms used for cubing, right-sizing, and reporting on packaging operations have been clunky and limited in their capabilities. By transitioning to a cloud-based software, you can take your business to the next level and maximize efficiency.

A cloud-based packaging software platform offers unparalleled flexibility and scalability. It allows businesses to access and utilize the software from any one of their warehouses – or anywhere with an internet connection, for that matter. This flexibility is particularly valuable for companies with multiple distribution centers or a global presence, as it enables centralized control and real-time monitoring of packaging operations across different locations. And the Cloud offers plenty of room for growth, so you can continue to scale up your business with the support of your same software platform.

Right-sized packaging automation is a game-changer when it comes to reducing shipping costs and minimizing environmental impact. Cloud-based software can analyze order data in real-time to determine the most suitable packaging size for each item, optimizing box dimensions and reducing waste. This not only cuts down on shipping expenses but also contributes to sustainability efforts by decreasing the use of excess packaging materials. By using a cloud-based packaging software platform, businesses can not only boost their bottom line, but also demonstrate a commitment to eco-friendly practices.

Almost everything we do on our phones, computers, TVs, etc. is connected to the Cloud in some way. Why shouldn’t our packaging software be too?
