Pack Trax "Should Cost" Model Software
What should your packaging really cost? Ever asked that question?
Pack Trax pioneered "Should Cost" Models for packaging more than 15 years ago. And we think we have more experience with the strategic use of "Should Cost" Models than anyone else. Importantly, we deploy cost model software in a highly collaborative manner rather than adversarial. We have worked successfully on more than 2800 client packages.
Please visit the "Packaging Cost Model Software" screen from our home page for an overview of our Packaging Cost & Optimization Software.
Our Model software have been adopted by top consumer products companies because they are very user-friendly and accurate.
Models are simple to use and highly accurate.
Models can be customized for your specific needs. Euro models are also available.
