EngView online packaging solution at BOPE18
Before its official release, packGATE was showcased at Benelux Online Print Event in the Atomium, Brussels. The event was focused on web-to-print and e-commerce solutions for the graphic sector. Industry professionals shared their experience with launching web-to-pack solutions and customer interfaces to current printing/packaging businesses.
Peter Janssen, the CEO of Endless Branding, was invited to share his company's experience with EngView web-to-pack solution, packGATE. He spoke on the challenges and benefits of growing his packaging business online. Valentin Vachkov from EngView showed the direction packGATE is heading with the new features coming soon.
Endless Branding has over 30 years of experience in the design and production of point-of-sale (POS) displays from cardboard and corrugated materials as well as wood, plastic and even metal. In recent years, the company has started receiving more and more requests for tailored solutions in smaller runs. The business needed an online platform for their customers to edit and modify the POS displays and packGATE turned out to be the right solution for their needs.
It uses the unique parametric technology of the EngView CAD/CAM server. Providing a gallery of parametric structures and simple design-your-own-packaging-or-display functionality, the online platform helps end customers create their own tailored displays in the desired sizes, graphics and materials. Customers can see the design and structure in a realistic 3D model, which gives them a very good idea of the final product they will receive. At the same time, the producer reduces its costs for making unnecessary display samples.
packGATE gives Endless Branding a medium for customers to create content on their own.
