X-Rite has acquired the ColorCert software assets from Nelissen Consulting, the privately held German company that originally developed the software. It’s a logical move since X-Rite had been distributing ColorCert exclusively since 2013.
ColorCert offers real-time colour and print quality process control and reporting. It’s fairly popular amongst some packaging converters and consumer brands.
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 ScoreCard Server and ColorCert Repository Server.
Adrián Fernández, vice president of X-rite’s PantoneLive division, explains: “We have seen significant global adoption of the ColorCert Suite and it is an essential component of our long-term packaging strategy to deliver integrated workflow solutions that streamline color management across the entire packaging lifecycle from concept to final product.”
He adds: ““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.”
