    “Before PackSight, there was no method of capturing and sharing ISTA test reports online. With over hundreds of thousands of tests conducted annually, we realized that moving to a digital method would create efficiencies for its members.” A.J. Gruber, President & CEO, ISTA

    Select, Collect and Analyze ISTA Packaging Protocols with PackSight

    PackSight is transforming the way packaging testing is performed through a new online planning and reporting platform for ISTA test procedures. Labs can select, collect and analyze test reports within PackSight, creating efficiencies and visibility for stakeholders across the supply chain.


    Selecting Test

    Feel confident knowing the right test has been selected

    collecting tests

    Quickly and easily perform procedures once test is selected

    analyzing tests

    Auto-generate report based on inputs and documentation, all in one place

    Select Test Paths

    With PackSight, users can feel confident knowing they’ve selected the right test. Users simply enter basic package information and PackSight generates the right test path to perform. 

    With the rise of more complicated and nuanced test procedures such as or 6-SAMSCLUB, PackSight takes the guesswork out of packaging testing and reduces the time it takes to complete tests. 

    PackSight is transforming the way packaging testing is performed with a dynamic online platform allowing users to easily input packaging information, quickly select test protocols, and generate test paths in minutes. Users can start a new test or pick up where they left off with a test already in progress.

    Collect Data

    Once users select the right test, they can quickly and easily perform the procedures. Whether users are veteran testers or new to the process, they can select a step-by-step or short test plan to complete tests.

    Given the variables across packaging labs setups, users can perform the tests in a variety of ways.

    Analyze Testing Trends

    With thousands of ISTA tests completed each year, there is a wealth of data on packaging performance. Previously, labs and brands had little visibility into test trends or results over time. 

    With PackSight, labs and brands can pull data on tests and look at historical trends. No more searching through personal file folders or shared drives. Because PackSight captures data in a consistent, structured manner, it’s easy to compare tests as apples-to-apples even if they’re performed by different people. Users can easily pull data and reports to answer questions such as: why is a certain product type always failing?

    Auto-Generate Test Reports

    One of the major benefits of PackSight automatic report generation, which previously took hours when done manually. 

    With PackSight, users can auto-generate reports within the platform based on their inputs and documentation. Within minutes, users can have a PDF or digital version of their test, stored within PackSight for historical tracking and reporting. Test results can be easily accessed on the go, as long as the user has an internet connection.
