AkzoNobel launches new app for vehicle refinishes
The new app supports the company's innovation strategy of moving towards more digital solutions

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel’s vehicle refinishes business has launched a new mobile app for colour matching. Body shops, technicians and painters across the globe can now get instant access to the latest colour formulas with this app.

Designed to enhance mobility at work, it’s now available for download in the App store and Google Play store – continuing the company’s long tradition of developing the industry’s leading digital colour techniques and technologies.

The new app which supports the company’s innovation strategy of moving towards more digital solutions will enable AkzoNobel to cater for the vehicle refinish industry’s increased need for greater accuracy and greater efficiency in colour matching.

An extension of the company’s advanced MIXIT colour identification and retrieval system, it uses cloud-based software to give users immediate access to its vast database of more than two million colours and variants – with more being added every day.

Both the MIXIT website and mobile app are central to Colorvation, AkzoNobel’s unique approach to vehicle refinishing, which was launched to empower the use of digital technology. Under the Colorvation banner, the company will continue to add new elements to make matching colours from different devices an integrated, effortless and secure experience.

The MIXIT web service can now function as a primary system for any body shops that simply want to search and mix colours, as well as tracking their colour history using the benefits of the secure cloud-based storage system.

“MIXIT is a fast, easy to use tool with advanced search and filtering features that allow users access to accurate results in the shortest time. Its introduction means customers now have the latest colour knowledge at hand, wherever they are,” said Henri Bijsterbosch, digital colour manager of AkzoNobel’s vehicle refinishes business.

“It will also be important to incorporate customer feedback into the further development of MIXIT, so we can adapt and improve together,” added Bijsterbosch.
