palOPTI 4.x

In addition to many innovations and extensions of our storage optimization software palOPTI, we present our latest version 4.04 with the new module "Extended Layout"

The new module "Extended Layout" allows you to make the output of the data created by palOPTI even more individual.

By integrating an RTF (Rich Text Format) document and the possibility to add about 150 different variables, you have a wide range of options for an individual edition tailored to your company.

At the same time, with the "Extended Layout" module, the tables for container types, packages and outer cartons were extended by 7 new individual fields for additional information.

This new module is an upgrade and is therefore also subject to a charge for existing customers. This new module is not included in a regular update (e.g., due to an existing maintenance contract).
