X-Rite and Pantone, in color science and technology, announce X-Rite Link. This intuitive cloud-based platform provides real-time insights into color measurement device health. Customers can monitor their entire fleet from one central dashboard to reduce manual management, optimize performance, and streamline the servicing process.
“Achieving consistent and accurate color in production requires well-maintained instrumentation,” said Ben Spiegel, Global Services Innovation manager, X-Rite. “X-Rite Link provides corporations with data-driven insights into fleet performance, even across multiple locations, to maximize efficiencies and reduce color errors. With visibility into device calibration, location, certification, maintenance, and much more, managers can have confidence in every measurement.”

X-Rite Link features –
  • Up-to-date status on each color measurement device including certification, warranty, and service care plans
  • A map of device locations
  • Monthly calibration reports
  • Live updates and tracking for service requests
  • Access to past service records
Using X-Rite Link, customers can track NetProfiler optimization and inter-instrument agreement across their fleet of devices to maintain peak performance. NetProfiler is a blend of software and physical color standards that makes it easy to adjust, validate, and align multiple devices for tighter color tolerances and improved global color consistency across the supply chain. X-Rite Link allows users to see fleet statistics over time or drill down into an individual device. This helps identify devices that may drift over time and require servicing.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
