Color Communicator


We Believe in Connecting All Partners

Our Color Communicator is the foundation of the Archroma Color Management application suite. This innovative color assessment tool is a web-based application that allows the continuous evaluation of information from your global supply chain. The system connects to most of today’s spectrophotometers, allowing for flexibility and rapid adaptability.


Product users can access the application anywhere the Internet is available—not just from your regional offices or headquarters. Wherever you’re located, you’re provided faster global transparency and control over your product. Keep in mind we can help you customize the system to manage your unique data and reporting requirements, too.


User Benefits:

  • No installation required, access anywhere with web connection
  • Secure, centralized digital color data storage
  • Access via mobile devices available
  • Utilizes proprietary colorimetric software
  • Optimized global shade approval work flow
  • Create a global information network to build your supply chain
  • Upload and securely store data from your personal color library
  • Customized data management and reporting


When collecting submits from your suppliers, the samples and information must be sent in for a final color assessment. Using Colorcommunicator.com, your mills and vendors submit this information online, which eliminates the need for duplication in data entry, as well as the opportunity for errors. Once the color rejections or approvals are made, your suppliers get the feedback online at their own personalized screen. It’s a secure network, one that requires your approval for entry. It guarantees data integrity, and simplifies reporting on vendor and dye house efficiency.
