AkzoNobel Car Refinishes has announced the release of the latest upgrade to its popular Sikkens Mixit Pro color formula retrieval system. Sikkens Mixit Pro 1.3 adds new features and functionality, plus an array of advanced repair management and information tools. “The new release allows customers to compare candidate formulas recommended by our Automatchic color matching tool, to search for custom colors per product line, and to view the color code on the queue screen and color chips on the measurement screen. We’ve also greatly expanded the reporting capabilities of Mixit Pro to help bodyshop operators to increase their efficiency and get a better handle on the day-to-day operations,” Director Color Marketing Ben Zweers says. Zweers notes, for example, that among the six new reports introduced with Mixit Pro 1.3 are mix accuracy reports, inventory reports, and painter reports, that the new release runs on more than one computer simultaneously on networks hosting several PCs, and that it can be tightly integrated into bodyshop management systems.
