Original Press Release
Better Sales Through New App for InnovaTint(TM) Tinting Software
Press release date: March 14, 2014
New app connects tablet computers to tinting software
Sittard, The Netherlands — Chromaflo Technologies, one of the leading independent global suppliers of colorant systems, chemical and pigment dispersions has introduced a new add-on for InnovaTint™ software which facilitates sales opportunities. The app enables wireless communication between tablet computers and tinting machines, which makes ordering much quicker and more efficient. With the tablet in hand, sales associates can accompany customers around the store and advise them on current tinting trends and instantly process orders. As a result, customers receive more attention, better service and are thus more likely to purchase additional goods. Store personnel can easily log on to the system to review, update, and process orders on the spot, reducing the risk of errors.
The additional software is part of Chromaflo’s integrated tinting approach, which ensures perfect performance throughout the entire tinting process. The add-on is not only an advantage at the sales floor level. Operators also profit from the simplified ordering process. While previously responsible for order placement, operators can now fully concentrate on paint production. Orders are automatically stored in the tinting queue, making them easily accessible
Simplicity and Convenience
The software add-on is ideal for larger or smaller paint stores which are in direct contact with customers and want to offer better service. With a wireless connection, store personnel can access the database at any time, anywhere in the store. The wizard-driven add-on is easy to use and shows visual presentations of the colors and products. Shop managers simply download the app, which can be done conveniently via iTunes or Playstore. Once the app has been activated by the tinting software, it can be accessed on up to 15 tablets, depending on the type of license purchased. The tablet only needs to be programmed once to the relevant tinting machine and software updates are downloaded automatically. The app can be operated on Android, Windows and Apple devices.
Controlling Tinting Market Information
Chromaflo Technologies’ InnovaTint™ tinting software puts paint manufacturers and retailers ahead of the market by providing them with real-time market information and sales statistics. The comprehensive and easy-to-handle software enables paint companies to manage information throughout the entire retail network. The software includes an unlimited database for color formulas and customer orders, which makes it easy for retailers to serve their clients individually.
The new InnovaTint™ app allows orders to be processed via tablets inside the store. “In future, the vision is to extend the reach of the app to outside use, with store personnel serving customers on site, further improving customer service,” says Alain De Haes, Product Manager Tinting Software at Chromaflo Technologies.
InnovaTint™ is available in four versions: Basic, Professional, Ultimate Limited and Ultimate. The new add-on contains a separate license, which is compatible with the Ultimate Limited and Ultimate versions.
