ColorCert QA

For Quality Control in Print & Packaging

Reduce makeready time and waste with ColorCert QA, a pressroom quality assurance solution that provides actionable guidance to manage color standards and improve your color performance.

Move Beyond Color Verification to Color Achievement

ColorCert QA is a quality control application designed to optimize press efficiency for non-job-based workflows. By simplifying the selection and management of color standards and providing actionable information, ColorCert QA helps press operators shorten makeready, reduce reprints and rejections, and run more jobs per shift.

Manage Standards More Efficiently

  • Manage color accuracy by leveraging digital color standards from PantoneLIVE dependent and master libraries
  • Minimize selection errors by reducing overlapping standards within a narrow dE range
  • Streamline your standards database by associating standards with one or many customers and/or projects

Optimize Jobs on Press

  • Reduce trial-and-error by providing operators with actionable visual information through BestMatch technology
  • Speed measurement performance and reduce waste by limiting color selections to those specified for the job in Project Mode
  • Report and maintain conformance data through a centralized ColorCert QA database

Facilitate Ink Room Integration

  • Set clear ink room expectations by exporting digital CxF files directly into InkFormulation Software
  • Ensure fast and accurate reformulation by providing digital color measurement data
