Datacolor®, a global leader in colour management technology, announced the launch of new colour lifecycle management solutions intended to deliver greater transparency and confidence for both textile and apparel brands, as well as suppliers, mills and dye houses.
The new offerings include Assessment Services, which encompass a suite of comprehensive colour assessment and lab audit services that will significantly reduce the time and cost of product development by ensuring the supply chain is qualified and capable to meet all expectations to assure colour quality.
Datacolor also introduces colorHub, a web-based software solution, which provides an unprecedented real-time view of mills’ colour performance. This cloud-based depository of lab dip and production colour data will help ensure shade consistency and quality by identifying and taking corrective action to colour issues in real time.
“No one better understands how colour impacts business than Datacolor, and we continually seek to develop new colour management solutions that meet our customers’ needs within today’s complex global supply chain,” said Dustin Bowersox, Market Manager, Textiles & Apparel, Datacolor. “These series of solutions are intended to address several pain points for the textile and apparel supply chain, allowing brands to make better sourcing decisions based on mill performance and sophistication while allowing suppliers to improve operational efficiency by providing real time data into the quality and consistency of their products.”
