We Speak Color in Many Languages
Clear and accurate communication is the number one problem for any multinational supply chain that relies on timely participation between brand owners, suppliers and vendors. With offices in more than 50 countries, X-Rite greatly improves communication by translating many languages into one universal language of color.

Less Time from Concept to Consumer
But good communication between supply chain participants is much more than a matter of translating languages. X-Rite also understands the function of each company in the supply chain -- insight that helps us to advise on proven methods of reducing the time from concept to market and improving quality through smart color communication. We deliver this approach to a personal level for our customers, helping anyone from a product designer to a quality control engineer to apply consistent approaches to standards and practices.

Easy and Affordable
Anyone who has ever installed a new network or software system knows how frustrating the experience can be. As the world's leader in color measurement solutions, X-Rite has unparalleled experience in integrating instruments and software from our own offerings and those of different manufacturers into one robust system of color communication.
