PPG Paintmanager Software Program Enrolls 5,000th Internet User

Published August 6, 2013
PPG Automotive Refinish has announced that 5,000 subscribers of the Paintmanager software color retrieval and management program have chosen to use the Internet instead of traditional CD releases to update their systems. The announcement of the milestone achievement was made by Mary Kimbro, PPG global color director.

“Getting fast and accurate color and program updates is critical, and we are very pleased to see our customers embracing this online option to enhance their PaintManager software,” said Kimbro in her announcement.

The PaintManager network-capable software program is a proven platform that can be configured to meet the needs of any distributor or collision center. This industry-leading software delivers color formulas targeted to match OEM colors and manages the paint mixing operation through exclusive touch screen technology.

“PaintManager software is a state-of-the-art system that brings the Internet into the mixing room to make paint operations as productive and profitable as possible,” added Kimbro. “Five thousand users across North America have now recognized the value of this remarkable tool, its connectivity capabilities and the management services it provides. With PaintManager software, shops are getting fast network access to color information, new products and program improvements; equally important, they’re getting the data that keeps their managers and technicians aware of all aspects of the repair business.”

The network capability and Internet connectivity of PaintManager software provide instant access to all the information required to make informed decisions on job costs, material usage, mixing efficiency, inventory and more. PaintManager software combines the accuracy and efficiency of computerized color mixing with comprehensive reporting and tracking features designed to help monitor and manage paint operations. With more color formulations delivered to the software database, this directly affects and improves the efficiency of the RAPIDMATCH™ X-5 spectrophotometer and match rating technology.

After a one-time installation process, PaintManager software updates are regularly downloaded, eliminating the need for CD usage and storage. In addition, throughPaintManager software’s secure two-way communication with PPG, HelpDesk technicians can remotely access the mixing room computer and provide real-time technical support.
