Populated search functionality.

It all starts here. Finding the right color in the most efficient manner, even when color codes are hard to locate. A powerful “smart” search engine provides results with minimal input. Versatile for singular or multi segment presets allows managing work with added flexibility. Information rich decisions are made in a simple view with one click.

Confident color matching.

Information that is current assures business process success. The PaintManager® XI software embodies system solution innovation that takes the guesswork out of formula retrieval. Coupled with strong color variant tools or digital color spectrophotometers – exact color search results are achieved with the greatest degree of precision at any point of the process.

Cloud sharing opportunities.

Achieve daily updates to the entire system including color formulations, product information, and software improvements.

Custom Formula Features:

  • Share custom “tinted” formulas (in network or cross locations).
  • Bring traditional sprayout libraries to life (tag and search).
  • Go one step further and add RapidMatch™ device measurements for enhanced digital color search.

Mix and Weigh

Personalized mix sessions.

One of the most recognized improvements within the application and promotes a “one step mixing” process approach to the paint operation. Build the repair layers starting with the color and add your favorite undercoat and clear. The new weigh screen allows simple and easy navigation between components and offers magnified end point detection to promote 100% mix accuracy.

Reduce waste, save time.

Estimating with accuracy—the amount of color, clear or primer needed for a repair is now achievable with the enhanced Estimate Volume feature. Select the closest vehicle or truck part and adjust the number of coats for full coverage or blend panels to dial in the precise volume of product to mix.

We know mistakes happen and sometimes there are over pours or waste. Tracking these instances will assist with job cost reporting and lead to meaningful resolution.

Team Management.

Any successful business recognizes that teamwork and communication fosters profitability. A winning feature in PaintManager® XI software is customizable user presets which allows greater transparency on team roles and responsibilities. At a glance mixing operations can be viewed via the Mix Queue associated with any job providing up to the minute details on the progress of any project.

Job Management

My work. My space.

Taking the concept of Mix Sessions to the next level with Jobs. Allows for simple and easy Repair Order tracking for active Jobs and historical work. At-a-glance preview of team assignments, work progress on each step of the repair and add spectrophotometer readings to the job. A must have utility for organizing and building your own personal work plan.

We mean business.

The heart of the collision center is throughput and elevating the number of vehicles coming to the shop and reducing “touch points” yields profitability. Jobs is a simple and easy tool to track all Repair Orders and generate Estimate information. Add Sundry Kits to maximize all costs around the repair and present a proper estimate back to the customer. And if you want to elevate your business to the next level – take advantage of the new Inventory and Pricing features.

Partner up.

There is strength in numbers. And when the paint mixing operation teams up with industry leading management partners—strong bonds form to deliver paint consumption metrics, evaluate materials usage and generate financial performance indicators. Web interfaces establish the packaging and movement of key data elements between the front office and the paint operation.

Reporting and Business Metrics
