Bye Bye Colour Composer, Welcome Innovatint
Technology develops at an ever increasing pace. New features are introduced and software platforms are being updated constantly. To offer the best service in the market it is important to follow all changes.
 
Chromaflo has always developed its own tinting and lab software and will continue to do this. Our Colour Composer range started 20 years ago and has progressed over the years, starting with a DOS based program up to a full graphically designed program running on the Windows platforms. But all good things come to an end. The programming language used, including third party software from Microsoft and SAP, is not supported anymore and the available features are becoming out-of-date. So it is time to say goodbye. We have already stopped the support for the Colour Composer range, but as of 2018 there will also not be any new licenses available.
