Refinishers rely on Standox Genius

Refinishers who want a fast and accurate way to match colours need look no further than Genius, the tried-and-tested spectrophotometer from Standox. More than 3,000 units are already in use in Europe, the Middle East and Asia – and this number is rising.

Jodie Henly, Standox brand specialist, says, “Genius has become part of the standard equipment in many bodyshops. The handheld device is one of those digital aids without which professional colour management is more difficult and time-consuming. It identifies special-effect and solid colours, and their variants, quickly and precisely. Interaction with the related Standowin software on the PC or directly with online colour search makes work quick and efficient. The use of the right colour tools in the bodyshop plays an essential role in obtaining the best results.

“Increasingly the technology we use at home is finding its place in the workshop too. More refinishers have smart phones and tablet PCs and use the internet as a regular source of information. This makes the use of digital colour tools at work a logical and convenient step.”

The range of Standox colour tools – which all centre around Genius – already use advanced technology to facilitate colour management at the highest level. Standox always listens to the feedback from users to refine and adjust its services to meet the changing industry requirements, and with its new, easy-to-use functions Genius continues to grow in popularity.
