Matchmycolor and Packz to collaborate

Matchmycolor and Packz have teamed up to better integrate colour specification into packaging workflows.

Packz offers productivity software to help make designs print ready. Its editing and workflow tools are based on native PDF to increase efficiency and communication in prepress for labels and packaging. Its customers are mainly brand service companies (PMAs), trade shops and printers.

Matchmycolor develops software tools for the colour supply chain from design to supply of finished product. These enable the specification and management of brand colour standards, the development of colour recipes, and reporting on the quality of colour produced. Matchmycolor has also developed plugins for high-end colour management software solutions, such as GMG OpenColor, for packaging proofing and color separations.

The goal of this partnership is to combine the colour specification and management software into one, interconnected packaging solution. They are currently building the technical connectivity and support processes, with both companies providing tools to integrate to other systems, such as, order entry, ERP, and MIS. This should lead to an open and flexible system where users can choose the components that best fit their requirements.
