Body shops, technicians and painters across the globe can now access the latest color formulas with the MIXIT mobile app from AkzoNobel’s Vehicle Refinishes business.

Designed to enhance mobility at work, the app is available for download in the App store and Google Play store.

Representing the company’s move towards more digital solutions, the app caters to the vehicle refinish industry’s increased need for greater accuracy and greater efficiency in color matching. An extension of the company’s advanced MIXIT color identification and retrieval system, it uses cloud-based software giving users immediate access to its database of more than two million colors and variants—with more being added every day.

“MIXIT is a fast, easy-to-use tool with advanced search and filtering features that allow users access to accurate results in the shortest time,” says Henri Bijsterbosch, digital color manager of AkzoNobel’s Vehicle Refinishes business. “Its introduction means customers now have the latest color knowledge at hand, wherever they are.”

Both the MIXIT website and mobile app are central to Colorvation, the company’s approach to vehicle refinishing that was launched to empower the use of digital technology. Under the Colorvation banner, the company will continue to add new elements to make matching colors from different devices an integrated, effortless and secure experience. “It will also be important to incorporate customer feedback into the further development of MIXIT, so we can adapt and improve together,” Bijsterbosch adds.

The MIXIT web service can now function as a primary system for any body shops that want to search and mix colors, as well as tracking their color history using the cloud-based storage system.
