VIVO ColourPortal provides a fast, structured, and professional communication interface between the customer and the Flint Group Global Colour Centre (GCC). The GCC delivers a centralised colour service supporting a comprehensive range of colour related requests. Services range from individual colour matching and DigiSwatch creation, to group wide, multi-site, colour mapping and private colour cloud management projects. VIVO ColourPortal is how 21st century customers communicate with colour experts.
Stuart Duffy, director professional services for Flint Group Paper & Board, makes the following observation, “Delivering highly competent colour management at a local level requires dedicated and skilled resources. As a consequence of increasing consolidation, standardisation, and globalisation, this local structure is no longer cost or functionally effective.”
Duffy comments, “VIVO ColourCloud is the solution to the globalisation of the packaging market. Our international partners demand the ability to share accurate colour data throughout the entire supply chain in a fast and efficient manner. Designing cost effective solutions makes the whole process affordable.”
Printers are expected to see multiple benefits from VIVO ColourPortal: Quick, consistent, and professional colour management service; Every colour match is bespoke to the customer’s site and press profile; Secure site interface is password protected; Multiple format file handling and sharing; Multiple languages are supported and Customised reporting.
VIVO ColourCloud is a unique and secure web-based repository providing large, small and multisite users with a dynamic search engine that has the ability to quickly select a required colour and download the three essential colour data.

Bespoke user management profiles allow customers to build a Private Cloud providing managed access to their own unique group or site specific colour pallets.
