Quick Pallet Maker calculates optimal box/pallet shipping dimensions.

Most products are shipped in boxes and then in standard pallets. Most of the time, these standard pallets are shipped within standard containers or in trucks. Frequently, there is some extra volume and/or weight in the containers or in the trucks that is billed anyway by the carrier but that is not used by the client. The use of this extra space through software tools should be an important factor for all manufacturers.

Based on this need, at SCA Mecanica we have created Quick Pallet

This price should open the door for a more reasonable developer to offer a similar product at a much lower and less insane price.

That's precisely what we did.

Compare the Quick Pallet Maker price to CAPE (http://www.capesystems.com) or TOPS (http://www.topseng.com) for an idea of competing products. Note that they don't have Mac OSX versions. There's another product that is more than $1000 that I can't recall right now.

Also note that we haven't charged for upgrades in 5 years, so the customers that paid once for some features have been treated with many more.

Cheers.

The author needs to find a price justification algorithm. Anybody who really needs this program will be happy to go through a few hoops to register it. At this price, the author is so insanely off base he can't expect to worry about support calls keeping him away from making the $299 update.

For an example of some savings while using Quick Pallet Maker, consider the one on the following link. This person is saving US$ 51,000 per year with the new container arrangement.

What we recommend people to do is to use their own data to calculate their shipping costs for X amount of items from point A to B before and after calculating a pallet arrangement with Quick Pallet Maker. If it's more than the $379, then fine. If not, then you were able to do all that without being hassled by a salesman.

Cheers.

$379. Un-pallet-able.

$379.00?

I'm sure there's some rationalization for that price... but it's a definite deal breaker for most self-employed or small business people, rationalization or not.

This is great if you work on eBay and you have to ship all of the packages.

Based on this need, at SCA Mecanica we have created Quick Pallet Maker, an easy to learn pallet loading/package design program that allows the user to calculate the optimal secondary package dimensions and pallet arrangements, thus reducing shipping costs.
