Standowin iQ, the Standox colour software, is now available as an app designed to complement the Standowin iQ Cloud solution delivering mobile digital colour management. It can be used on tablets and smartphones.

Standox introduces Standowin iQ Cloud for Android and iOS

Refinishers can access the features of Standowin iQ Cloud on WiFi-enabled smartphones and tablets with just one click and even connect to local devices. From the reception area to the preparation area and office, digital colour retrieval and shading becomes even easier with mobile networked devices and the Standowin iQ app, regardless of location or device – whatever works best for the bodyshop.

“The app connects our digital tools,” says Kevin Welling, Training Academy Manager for Axalta in the UK and Ireland. “Once registered and connected to the devices used in the bodyshop, such as the spectrophotometer, IP scales or label printer, a refinisher’s day can start even faster. The cloud ensures that jobs, colour measurements and selected colour formulas are loaded into the system. Standox has offered completely digital colour management for a while, but the app will make the process even more user-friendly as well as bring together a variety of tools.”

In addition to the familiar functions of the Standowin iQ software, the app offers an integrated scanner function that can accelerate job management, and automatic updates provide up-to-date information, formulas and products. The Standowin iQ app can now be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play or directly from
