ISTA Packaging Performance Testing

Introducing PackSight, Powered by Specright

Packaging Test Planning & Reporting for ISTA Standards

Transforming Packaging Performance with PackSight

The International Safe Transit Association (ISTA), is the most trusted, knowledgeable and respected authority in predictive package-performance testing in the world. 

ISTA has partnered with Specright to create PackSight. Built on top of Specright’s powerful Specification Data Management™ platform, PackSight enables packaging and supply chain professionals to select, collect and analyze ISTA tests online.

“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

Slide What our users say “One of the things we really like is that PackSight goes step by step and reminds us of the exact parameters we need to go by and what goals the package must meet. Nothing slips through the cracks.” Mark Beck, Concept Packaging Slide What our users say “We love that you can add as many pictures as you want, it helps capture details that the raw test data doesn’t always portray.” TJ Willis, Concept Packaging

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.

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  6-Amazon.com-SIOC 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.
