When we first tell people that our GoBoxes™ took us well over a year to engineer, design, prototype and test before we could bring them to market, they look at us like we have three heads…

How could a simple ‘box’ take so long?

Well, the evolution of our current GoBoxes™ started with the simple goal of hoping to licence the best on-site direct sourcing solution that we could find in order to fulfill the needs of our “hybrid” job board service Apply Now Network™.

We just knew that there had to be a great dispenser out there and we were determined to find it. So, we researched, examined and/or purchased EVERY card holder/dispensing device that we could find.  We searched everywhere in the marketplace both domestically and internationally.  After closely examining dozens of designs, we soon realized that many different devices on the market did one or two things really well, but not one of them accomplished everything we were looking for.  Some had unique ‘finger roll’ dispensing actions but were not weather resistant while others were weather resistant but required a two-handed dexterous operation involving opening lids, removing covers, sliding panels, etc.

After almost 4 months of studying every device that we could literally find in the marketplace, we decided to chronicle the best features from each of the various designs. Next, we used that information to compile a ‘checklist’ of sorts listing the top 20 requirements, functions and/or needs required to be called the ‘Best Solution in the Marketplace’. (See list above.)

Since we couldn’t find a satisfying solution ANYWHERE in the marketplace, we quickly realized that the only way to achieve our goal was to build a better solution ourselves starting from scratch.  And that’s exactly what we ended up doing.  Our early designs were radically different designs that included Post-it type notes with disposable cardboard pop-up dispensers.  Soon after, we replaced the cardboard and tested ABS plastics, Acrylics, Aluminum and various other materials before we ultimately selected the very special plastics used in our GoBoxes™ today.  From there, we started working with mechanical “dispensing” mechanisms powered by springs, tension coils and even industrial rubber bands with gears & levers that would work together to pop the cards up with a simple push of a lever. However, we just couldn’t find a winning mechanical solution. For instance, the industrial rubber bands were great, but would not operate reliably in really cold weather and the spring and lever approach made reloading the units very challenging and were difficult to adequately weatherproof.

Ultimately, we decided to abandon mechanical power all together in favor of using just the power of Gravity. We spent the next several months building over 100 different prototypes until we finally settled on just the right aesthetic design made of a unique combination of thermal dynamic materials, gravitational angles, strategic dimensions, special cuts, custom adhesives, unique paints and all-weather decals.  All of these elements, when combined together, form our incredible GoBoxes™. Since our GoBoxes™ meet or exceed ALL 20 of the requirements listed above, we are confident that our GoBoxes™ are simply the best solution available in the industry! Goal achieved.

P.S.  We believe our GoBoxes™ just may be the best dispensers in the world – Let us know if you find a better solution anywhere.
