Lawrenceville, NJ – June 17, 2010 – Datacolor® (newserver.datacolor.eu), a global leader in color management solutions, today announced that it has partnered with Color Solutions International (CSI), a leading service provider in color communications for the entire supply chain. The partnership will include an integration of CSI’s ColorWall with Datacolor TOOLS supply chain oriented color quality control software, allowing apparel and home furnishings designers, brands and retailers to more easily specify colors for seasonal palettes.

Through the partnership, customers will now have the ability to search the approximately 4,000 ColorWall color references from a searchable database within Datacolor TOOLS. Once a ColorWall color is selected, CSI can create a Certified Color Standard, a combination of visual reference fabric and master electronic standard, to easily communicate palettes throughout global supply chains.

The integration will provide designers and colorists with access to the industry’s most extensive and trend-relevant color references available for seasonal palette selection and a more efficient method for development. Future plans for the partnership include additional value added solutions that reduce cost and improve quality for the global color supply chain. “With the most abundant and regularly updated collection in color references, the ColorWall is the known choice for customers seeking inspiration for their seasonal color palettes,” said Dr. Ron Pedemonte, President and CEO, Color Solutions International. “By making the ColorWall available to Datacolor TOOLS users, we are supplying them with greater color choices and superior color consistency.”
