ColorCert ScoreCard Server is an open software ecosystem and supports digital packaging workflows. It integrates with X-Rite Color iQC, IntelliTrax2 Pro, eXact Auto-Scan Pro, PantoneLIVE™, XRGA-based pressroom spectrophotometers, AVT SpectraLab, Esko Color Trace and qualified third-party quality control software.
Converters can add ScoreCard Server as part of an end-to-end connected packaging workflow for centralised production reporting and scorecard reporting into brand quality control programmes.
The ColorCert ScoreCard Server with new customisable dashboards and reports is designed for packaging converters. Used by leading consumer packaged goods (CPG) brands as part of their brand quality control programmes, this new release now offers print suppliers greater visibility into their press and production facilities to quickly identify colour related issues, optimise production processes and improve colour quality scores.
‘With the redesigned ColorCert ScoreCard Server, we are extending and expanding our statistical analysis capabilities to help converters elevate colour performance and drive process improvements,’ said Cindy Cooperman, Vice President, Brand Global Strategic Accounts, X-Rite. ‘Now brands as well as print suppliers can use ColorCert ScoreCard Server to access unbiased quality results and collaborate on the packaging production workflow by seeing every colour metric and identifying areas for improvement. This strengthens the print supplier and brand relationship while improving efficiencies.’
Part of the ColorCert Suite, the ScoreCard Server provides an overall view of print quality and colour performance in a single number score that is relevant and easy to understand. Built from the ground up using a modern, secure and flexible architecture, the redesigned ScoreCard Server features a new interface that allows converters to configure dashboards and create automated quality reports tailored for their daily print production meetings.
Using one integrated, cloud-based platform, pre-media and production managers have real-time visibility into colour performance across all brand customers, presses and production facilities. Advanced analytics allow managers to drill down into specific jobs, compare colour quality between print and packaging component runs and uncover trends over time. This level of visibility enables operators to identify causes of colour problems related to ink, press or plate, make adjustments, and act on preventative maintenance issues to avoid unexpected downtime. Converters can better meet and exceed customer colour quality requirements.
