A Note from our President

Bill Rehring

When we founded TOPS in 1990, a lot of thought went into what to call ourselves. We wanted a name that was not only simple but to the point. Our overall goal was to create computer software that would totally optimize packaging and distribution needs. TOPS, an acronym for Total Optimization Packaging Software, seemed perfect. Through a cohesive team effort, we continue to reach that goal. The TOPS line of software is the most advanced tool available for packaging and distribution optimization. I hope you will find our software to be all we intended it to be. Please do not hesitate to call me directly if there is anything I can do to ensure complete satisfaction with your TOPS software.

TOPS prides itself on the following and is committed to continue to serve its customers:

  • TOPS Offers the best customer service and support in the industry.  Your calls are always answered by a live person and all technical support inquiries will be responded to within 24 hours.
  • TOPS developed all program codes in-house rather than licensing from third parties.  This ownership and control allows TOPS to customize the programs to accommodate any customized requests.
  • TOPS is financially strong and will be here to stay and serve our customers.
