Britvic PLC Licenses PackDevPro

PackDevPro optimizing packaging in the soft drink industry

James Ross Consulting announced today that Britvic PLC is an official licensee of PackDevPro, their next-generation web-based software tool that enables packaging engineers to rapidly develop solutions for new and renovated packs that are demonstrably optimized for the supply chain.

PackDevPro Development Director, Stuart Kimpton said “We are delighted to have Britvic on board as we share a common vision; to advance technology in the packaging industry.”

As a web-based tool, PackDevPro forms part of a new generation active desktop for Packaging Engineers — providing consistent, transparent and technically optimized packaging solutions in real time on all web-enabled devices.

Britvic Soft Drinks, in the UK, became interested in the PackDevPro when conducting an RFQ for new packaging and palletization software. Working alongside PackDevPro’s development team, they commissioned the software at the start of 2017. GB&I Packaging Technical Leader Lee Emery commented: “The PackDevPro tool is easy and intuitive to use, is competitively priced and, most importantly, gives us a common platform to push optimization within our fast-moving NPD process — the tool is a real asset.”
