NEW TO THE CRATING BUSINESS?
Crate Pro is for you! Our crate design, costing and management software is built from the ground up to assure it has all the features and functionality you need to get started in the industry. For over 10 years our software (formerly Crate Generator, Crate Designer and Easy Crate) has provided assistance to more than 95% of the commercial crating software users worldwide!
Crate Pro starts with over 248+ pre-populated crate Styles and over 970+ pallet Styles. All modifiable for custom designs. No more restrictions to just a few styles!
Crate Pro gives you extreme control over your crate design. Placement and lengths of all your framing members or cleats is handled for you automatically. This means you NEVER have a problem with panel fit.
With our new Rules based methodology, you select how intermediate or filler materials are placed from a drop-down menu then Crate Pro handles all the measurements for you! What could be easier?
After Crate Pro calculates the initial design, you have control to change any piece of material and can change intermediate cleats to be just the way you want them.
Add packing material, auto build floater decks or foam lining, add to the inventory quickly and easily any items not already included! Store related digital documents and pictures with any design or job. No more digging through multiple programs or paper files to find what you're looking for!
Even thought Crate Pro allows you to make lots of adjustments, you will often find them unnecessary. Crate Pro comes with a setup file that handles nearly 10,000 fields of default data for you. They are all prepopulated and everyone of them is adjustable by you. Typically 99.75% of the fields are not changed by users, and the other 0.25% of the fields are often changed. Either way, you have total control. Crate Pro uses all this default setup data when it designs a new crate
