PackSight was designed to digitize ISTA packaging performance testing data, enabling users to conduct tests accurately and efficiently. PackSight follows the same foundational belief Specright was built on: that data enables our users to make amazing things, from development, to testing, to launch.
ISTA had a goal to modernize packaging testing, prompting a search for a partner who not only had extensive technology expertise, but a deep understanding of packaging as well. Enter, Specright.
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.

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.
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.
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 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?
One of the major benefits of PackSight automatic report generation, which can take 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, via the internet.
