X-Rite acquires Nelissen's ColorCert software assets

X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in colour science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, world’s leading color authority, providing design professionals with paint and designer-inspired products and services, have announced that the company has acquired the ColorCert software assets from Nelissen Consulting, a privately held company in Germany.

Since 2013, X-Rite has been the exclusive distributor of ColorCert software, a real-time colour and print quality process control and reporting tool used by consumer packaged goods companies and packaging converters to simplify colour communication across all internal and external stakeholders.

As part of the agreement, X-Rite will acquire all ColorCert software assets and intellectual property related to the ColorCert Suite including ColorCert Desktop tools, ColorCert Score Card Server and ColorCert Repository Server.

The ColorCert Suite is the leading platform in the packaging market that allows brand owners, premedia, ink companies, and printers to connect colour specifications and control from design execution to printed results. It provides both brand owners and converters with a transparent and fair evaluation of print and colour quality results allowing them to shift from a visual to analytical workflow to collaboratively improve results.

Consumer packaged goods companies have seen a significant increase in packaging quality and consistency in their supply chains by leveraging the ColorCert Suite to specify colour expectations throughout the packaging workflow to final production. Brands receive real-time print quality reports from their print suppliers without having to wait days or weeks for samples. This improves production times and brand consistency at the shelf.

For packaging converters, the ColorCert Suite enables them to better manage the complexities of their workflow. Print managers can use production data from the ColorCert Suite to easily understand colour tolerances and verify whether production is meeting a client’s expectations. Packaging printers can also use the Suite to better manage CMYK, extended gamut, and spot colour workflows, regardless of the printing process, substrate, or industry standard.

Adrián Fernández, vice president, PantoneLIVE, X-Rite said, “With this acquisition, we strengthen our investment in the ColorCert Suite and will accelerate its product development to provide additional reporting and measurement functionality for press operators, improved usability and enhanced integration with X-Rite technology partners as well as premedia, ink and press process control tools.” (GK)
