The Online SoftworX mission is to leverage cloud computing and its inherent pay-as-you-go pricing to deliver high-end panel optimization to anyone who needs it.

The business problem dustCut solves is as old as the kitchen cabinet: Find the lowest possible labor and material cost to produce a set of rectangular panels. It sounds simple enough, but according to Eli Sokal, founder of Online SoftworX, "It's actually one of the harder IT problems to solve properly, in part because academia offers no text-book solutions."
With its dustCut cloud app, Online SoftworX enters a space already known for a number of packaged optimizers dating back to the early eighties. The traditional offerings fall into two main groups, the affordable and the able. Mr. Sokal, who developed one of the 1980's packages himself, believes the majority of optimizer developers fell short in their efforts and opted to release their products at a low price point. Several such optimizers continue to tout "free download" on shareware sites. Meanwhile, those developers that have managed to create robust optimizers continue to earn substantial license fees.
But times change, and Online SoftworX is now poised to serve users that need high-end optimization without the high-end license fee. According to Mr. Sokal, "The Online SoftworX mission is to leverage cloud computing and its inherent pay-as-you-go pricing to deliver high-end panel optimization to anyone who needs it."
